Having been a somewhat early adopter of SSDs, I got bitten a couple of time by the JMicron bug
Everything I've read so far suggests that if you are buying SSDs you want to go with Intel.
Note that this new Intel SSD is the first Intel-branded SSD that uses a non-Intel controller. It uses the same Marvell controller used in the well-regarded Crucial RealSSD C300.
I've also read about Intel's great combo of performance and robustness, but that reputation is mostly a result of Intel's controllers. JMicron, a manufacturer of SSD controllers, got its buggy reputation from early JMicron-based SSDs. Marvell's controller performance has been proven in many reviews, but Intel's "endorsement" gives me more confidence in Marvell's reliability and robustness.
