I'm getting a SSD for a laptop, I want a 60GB drive.

Which drive should I get? I don't want to jump through tons of hoops just to get one to work correctly, with firmware updates and blue screens and such. I have a Vertex 2 60GB drive in my other laptop already which I love, but I bought that over a year ago and wanted to get a new perspective on the SSD landscape. From what I've read new drives have had a ton of problems with firmware and whatnot, and I know my Vertex 2 has worked like a dream which makes me inclined to simply buy another, but I'm open to suggestions.

Here are a few that look good to me:

I want to spend around $100. I've been hoping to find a good deal on a random deal-of-the-day or something similar. The laptop it will be used in is a Dell Vostro 3350.

Just to reiterate, space is not an issue here, 60 or 64GB will be plenty. And speed should be relatively similar across all drives, since the laptop is bottlenecked by SATA 3Gb/s speeds (I believe), which leaves me with the main criteria of price and reliability. Any feedback on these would be very welcome, as well as any deals that you come across. Thanks!

Tips:
before placing your order, you can google the type of your ssd and then add other words like drawbacks to see any report from users.

Or you may read the comments from the purchasers and decide whether you are okay with the down points.
