No. Not only is that drive weak when incompressible data is uses, it could suffer from the Sandforce 2281 bsod bug. Google it and see all the people having problems.

I don't know much about other SSDs but I was recommended the Crucial m4 128 by OCN and love it so far!

I say M4 only because you get another 8gb of space. This is some valuable real estate that you will want.

m4, I'm getting one this week.

You wont be sorry. Just make sure you install your drivers in proper order. Chipset drivers first. I think one of the sticky posts has the order in it or just google it. Download them to a thumb drive so you can install them before you have to install you network drivers to get on the net. This is all of course if you are going to do a clean install and not use an image of your current drive. I did not do them in order and I think that is why I can not install the latest intel chipsets anymore or the latest RST drivers. I have tried 3 times and I looked at the log and at the very bottom I see "Error waiting for thread"

Hey that's useful information man, thanks.
Also, my friend tells me I should do a full format on new drives instead of a quick, because it will also scan for bad sectors except it takes hours. Is that true?

I always laugh when I see these threads because I know exactly what's coming. OCN is head over heels in love with the M4, and for good reason. It's about twice as fast as the Intel 320 series (both sequential and random) on a good SATA III controller, and just as stable. Kind of makes me regret my purchase. Oh well.
