So, the harddrive on my macbook pro is taking a dump after a year and a half. To be fair, its been hit hard, a LOT. That huge dent the dog put in my computer? Totally right where the HDD sits :/
Anyways, I've got a lot of extra hours coming in all of a sudden, so Im going to pick up an SSD for it (along with 8gb of ram). Going for a 120/128GB.
Here are my options

Any preferences? Im inclined to go for the samsung as Ive NEVER had an issue with any samsung product, but I also like the ocz and kingston since theyre flash memory people as is. The ADATA gets GREAT reviews though.
OCZ is supposedly crap for warranty support if people on the internet are to be believed. I know Intel is pretty straight if you know your dealer and of course Kingston is the easiest place to RMA to ever. "hey my packaging is bent" ... "ok send it to us and we'll send you a new one"
