price is good but not sure about the SSD itself..
i would rater pay $1/GB and get a crucial M4 128GB, still very fast and one of if the most reliable SSDs on the market

Great price, great SSD. ADATA makes great hardware, and I have never had a single problem with anything I have purchased from them (which has been two sets of RAM and 3 SSD's). The only thing you would have to worry about is if all the kinks are ironed out of the Sandforce controller that the SSD uses.

This company makes great memory products, but I'm not sure about the sandforce controller, the price is very good, a local stores here sell the 120GB ones for 240$, I almost killed myself seeing the price tag :|

In terms of price, performance and reliability; M4 is competitive.

Updated my ssd benchmarks and I hope this helps.
(It varies on which criteria suits your needs as general opinions may not meet some requirements)

(Sorry I can't explain the affects of each criteria or in layman atm)

(new edit): Vertex 4 firmware 1.4R now exceeds all 120-128GB SSD benchmarks at incompressible data.
