Default SSD upgrade advice.

Hey guy, any advice on a 120gb ish upgrade from my vertex II which seems to have kicked the bucket this morning? Have to admit I'm disapointed with this drive, didn't expect it to die like this, figured it was more reliable than my standard drives but I'm no 0-1 on SSDs. It's less than two years old I believe.

Oh, have the p8p67 deluxe mobo and am looking to spend between 100-150 CAN.

I would say this.
OCZ Vertex 3 120GB 2.5IN SATA3 6Gbps SandForce SF-2281 Solid State Disk Flash Drive SSD - OCZ Technology - VTX3-25SAT3-120G

But since you are probably not wanting OCZ again then this.

Crucial M4 SSD Micron C400 128GB 2.5IN Solid State Disk Flash Drive SATA3 6Gbps - CRUCIAL TECHNOLOGY - CT128M4SSD2

+1 for the M4. Crucial is one of the most reliable SSD companies if not the most reliable.

Thanks, although I just figured out that this SSD might be under warranty still so I'm going to go down that route first. Crucial I've usually trusted so that could be a good backup.
