I will cast my chips in with the others on Intel, Samsung and Crucial drives. Samsung especially I've worked with in enterprise and can be some very stable puppies. Of course, every brand has their own bugs, though while OCZ and cheap brands require replacements, more refined brands like the previously listed are only a BIOS and drive firmware update away. Worst case scenario besides replacing the drive itself is that you'll just need to update the BIOS and firmware, tweak some settings in the BIOS (typically setting SATA to AHCI if not already) and then reinstall Windows. After that works like a charm.
Just don't get discouraged by receiving a bad apple or two. Get from a proper brand and you'll have around the same failure rate as your common HDD, which is still present, but not common enough to cause much of an issue.
