The Intel 510 series SSD are sata-600, can be extremely fast (about 500 MB read, 400MB write) but with small random data, it's actually slower compared to the Postville! Weird!
If you need one now, and you don't have sata-600, I would pick the Postville, or perhaps the Corsair Force (Sandforce and fast 34nm flash, OCZ has slower 25nm flash)
If you have sata-600, the vertrex 3 is probably the best performing SSD, for now at least.
