Quite Interesting so far..
Most of them seem to be OCZ or some form of SandForce controller based drives.
What OS' did you put on the 30GB drives btw? It's almost useless for Windows 7..

Intel X25-V 40GB - Used as a boot drive for windows 7, worked great but would always fill itself down to 17gb and stay there which made boot times a few seconds longer, on a samsung 830 128gb, going to be getting a 256gb for games alone and have mechanical drives in external storage

I reckon early adopters (I'm considering since 2008 since that's when consumer SSDs became a viable, albeit still expensive option) would have either Intel (good), Indilinx (okay) or JMicron (crap). I think the not-so-early early adopters started moving to SSDs with the release of the X25-M G2 and first generation SandForce drives since that was the time we started seeing steep drops on SSD prices: from ~$500 for 80GB to ~$200. I think it was also after the release of 34nm NAND-based SSDs that TRIM support was added.

Windows 7 fits on a 30GB SSD... barely. I used a 40GB SSD and Windows install + programs + 1GB pagefile and some documents thrown in takes around 25GB for me. The winsxs folder, in particular, is a big offender. A clean Windows install with just programs and pagefile uses around 16GB or so.
