SSD in a Dell E6420

Is there anything I need to look out for in terms of maximising both the performance and the reliability of the SDD drive? It's my first venture into SSDs...

Personally, System Restore has got me out of a few holes, so I'm something of a fan - but your point about ditching it in favour of conserving disk space is a good one.
