Default SSD

OK, so I have decided to use a SSD for my OS on my new build while using a regular HD for my media. This is my last component needed for my build and I just need some help deciding which SSD to buy. I've been looking on newegg and these are the ones I am deciding between:

G.SKILL FALCON FM-25S2S-64GBF1 2.5" 64GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid state disk

Corsair CMFSSD-64N1 2.5" 64GB SATA II Internal Solid state disk (SSD)

OCZ Agility Series OCZSSD2-1AGT60G 2.5" 60GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid state disk (SSD)

Are there any known issues with any of these or are any clearly better than the other two? Thanks again for your help.

You'd be best going for the OCZ or the G.Skill (they're actually the exact same drive with same memory controller, just repackaged by both companies), as they have the same transfer speeds - personally I'd go for OCZ since it's cheaper and it's got that cool green label.

Edit: Also as far as I can tell the G. Skill ones have been having firmware issues.

I would wait for the Intel X25-M G2 80gb to be back in stock, it's pretty much the best drive on the market and a great value for $230.
