I would go with Intel 520 240 GB (Cherryville) because they are very reliable and cost around £250 each

+1 for Intel.

Intel worked with SandForce to make their controller more reliable. This, paired with Intel's extensive in-house testing means that the 520s are one of, if not the most, reliable SSDs out there.

Oh, and it also walks over the competition, too.

There's a nice review of the 520s on here, I am sure. Let me try and find it.

So of the four drives we have on test today, which gives the best results?

I think it's pretty obvious that the Intel 520 was the most consistent drive throughout all of our testing, in both the read and write benchmarks. All the other drives had strong results and weak results, but the Intel just kept churning out high scores regardless of what we threw at it and that would have to be our recommended drive of the four on test. Although it is of course worth noticing than in real-life daily usage any of these drives would be nearly inseparable and provide the performance increase that we're all so desperate for.
