I'm curious what everyone thinks about the various SSD offerings these days. Who provides reliable hardware these days? I would gladly accept a 10% performance hit for a lower likelihood of premature failure. My usage pattern involves massive small-file access and random database access, as well as some gaming (starcraft, path of exile, etc).
I bought a C300 a few years ago, and have had an excellent experience. I have my Linux OS, project data, and some games on the drive, and have only done ~66 full writes thus far. The drive has served me well, but I want more ssd space and possibly an SSD for my laptop. I keep all other data on mirrored RAID, so SSD failure is my greatest fear (barring catastrophic PSU failure. I use dust filters since the Second Great Computer Fry of 2004...).
Who are the reliable players in the game these days? Still Crucial and Intel? Is Sandforce still slightly scary if you care about your data?
Edit: Also I am budget-concious, so don't type the letters "SLC" unless you know something I don't
Edit2: Also, what do people think about SSD swap? I went to great lengths to limit writes on my first SSD, but given that I still have about 190 years of estimated wear leveling left on the drive given current usage rates, perhaps I should not be so anal. Then again, I do tend to write software which attempts to initialize infinite data structures more frequently than I would like to admit.
