    Get the cheapest because they are probably all the same OEM models anyway.

    All 3 are quality SSD's from very reputable manufacturers. They all 3 use the same Sandforce SF-1200 controller which means they will all handle 50,000 IOPS, and perform within ~2% of each other. All 3 are 60GB with the same warranty as well. If you're on a budget, pick the cheapest one and call it a day. If you're partial to a particular company, don't hesitate.

    For what its worth, I personally run a Vertex and just ordered a Vertex 2 for my brother system. I've been very happy with my Vertex and OCZ as a company so I will continue to purchase their products. They do pride themselves in offering solid support through their forums and on the phone.

    I agree with the poster above. Vertex 2 is the way to go. I have not bought it yet, but after looking through several 60gb SSD's I decided on the Vertex 2.

    All of them have the same advertised Read and Write Speed

    But Vertex 2 is also the cheaper after the rebate so OCZ for the win?
