Been installing them onto quite a few laptops lately, for my main rig I prefer my Crucial M4's.
Not the fastest, and not the slowest. Just decent, and not expensive.
+1 to this..
I have a Crucial M4 and ADATA SSD's as well.

I am in the middle of doing my RMA for this drive. Lasted a little under 4 months. I paid under $70 for it on sale. It had fine speed, but then started causing my PC to BSOD and other issues. I downloaded HDTune and tried to bench it, the drive would give a read error and stop. Also testing the drive for error's gave me about 8% damaged sectors. If there is a bright side, I get my new drive Monday, I can drive over to Kingston and do a will call pick up. RMA already approved. Already swapped over to a Samsung 840, will use the new Kingston for a games only drive if I keep it.
