Keep in mind that it's a SandForce drive. Sequential write speeds will likely be similar or worse than the Plextor's if you've got an incompressible workload. The Plextor M5M would be my choice among those.

Edit:
Was browsing TechBargains and noticed this deal:
Plextor M5M 128GB Internal mSATA 6Gb/s Solid State Drive $80.99

For an extra $10 over the cheapest 60GB SSD above, you get both double the storage and improved (incompressible) performance. The small number of dies in 60-64GB SSDs really limit their performance so even if you don't need 120-128GB storage, it's usually worth if for increased performance due to more dies as well as more space available for over provisioning.

thanks for the info and I just saw that too and ordered. I guess it was just meant to be!

10% off coupon VME10BTS can be used if you sgn up for V.me payment. It's run by visa and they seem to have been running their google wallet type service.
