Which SSD drive for my MBP

As the title says - I am about to go live with my band. Want to get an SSD drive in my MBP 13' 2011 model for fast sample access. I am looking into 60 - 120 Gigs range since I dont want to spend too much. Which ones would You recommend? The super speed is not that important to me as the SSD speed ranges already give me what I want - I just need a reliable disk that will not go into pieces while this sub frequencies will shake it a bit.

You answered it yourself. If you need up to 120Gb than any less and you won't have enough. So just get the 120. Didn't really seem like a difficult decision.....

@ Terce - my question was not about the capacity but about reliability. I need a reliable solution for live gigs.

@redroom - did You have to make any special tweaks in the OS itself? My plan is to swipe the original HD with the SSD and put the original HD in the optibay.
Did You have to clone the OS ? Any tricky issues?

Peace
M

I put an Intel X-25 into my MacBook a year ago with no tweaks, just copied my existing install to it. No problems running Snow Leopard/PT9.
