I think it's A-Data. Personally I would go for a OCZ if possible since the tend to have the best support.

I dont really care about support on anything besides video card and motherboards. A 99 dollar Sandforce based 64GB SSD is pure pwnage.

OCZ drives have been nearly that cheap before though. Plus at least some of them come with a nice 2.5" to 3.5" adapter that's worth a few bucks too.

I know their last gen SSDs were, but I don't know if these are.
