Well, I did the get the Crucial M4 128 GB SSD installed and it's working beautifully. Taking the iMac apart was tedious but very easy.
Here's my tips:
1. buy the torque screw set from ifixit.com or somewhere online (but why not ifixit), you can't find a screw set that small anywhere like home depot or radio shack
2. the crucial 3.5 adapter kit does not fit from crucial we had to cut a large piece of foam and place it behind the kit to secure one end from moving up and down (not may favorite solution, but it's very secure)
3. a third party SSD will NOT have trim enabled with Lion, be sure to find one that has a fairly decent garbage collection feature installed on the disk itself. not sure if this is going to cause a problem or not
+4. also, the thermal sensor is on the SSD and the HD fan is not spinning up crazy. It's nice and quiet
+
SSD is great. Applications open in about a second or two. It's CRAZY!!! Never going back.
