Go 1 or 2 sizes larger:
I like OCZ or Corsair. OWC, Crucial , Patriot, etc., any Sandforce controlled drive is fine.
No sense in limiting yourself to 3 GB/s. If the price is right, get the newer 6 GB/s drive
Samsung 830, great line, used by Apple, price too so look for one.
Crucial m4 iffy, they ship with old firmware and HAVE to be update to work at all properly on Mac.
SandForce had firmware issue, again, in June, and Corsair has 3-4 lines, GT or GS are what you want.
Read too much on eVGA about trouble continuing with OCZ to ever buy one.
But yes, buy the latest, always, in all things hardware.

Like many things... reading is one thing.
Everthing will have detractors sometime, somewhere.
OCZ and Corsair are in 4 machines that I've built, 2 of each.
Can't say anything negative and performance is unfaltering.
Not like my stuttering OWC.... needed refreshed.... twice.
240 GB SSD and 2 TB Hitachi 7K..... sweet performance at a value if shopped right.
and folks think OWC is mac safe, there are you surely know a lot of issues with different models, firmware and depends when. I thiught OCZ learned from earlier mistakes.
I have never seen an ussue with Samsung, but don't yet own one, Apple support for TRIM 3rd party is absent, and BGC alone is not enough, nor do I recommend a TRIM Enabler 3rd party utility.
I mention evga as I spend time there, and comments are from better than disgruntled users but people that over the yrs building and testing.
and mac pribably have to be careful. what I do, versus what I'd say or recommend to others, differ.
