OCZ vertex 2 120gb

The tests here give a good indicator of overall drive performance.

The key one is the AS SSD 4K random write test which measures the performance of writing many small files simultaneously. Real world performance isn't as profoundly different as this, but it's an insight into exactly where the SF-1200's strength is.
