I'm running an OCZ Agility 3 60GB in my media center with no issues
It is also used for timeshifting TV (not recording)

SSD's can handle more than you think, really. They'll last for years and years even when used for timeshifting.
Timeshifting is even worse than recording TV for an SSD. It's constantly recording data to the SSD so that it can buffer the last 15(?) minutes of TV.

A small 60GB SSD is worth around $40 nowadays, no reason NOT to use one for this application.
Overkill for this application. An HTPC that doesn't store anything locally doesn't need a super fast SSD nor an SSD that large. An older generation 60GB-80GB SSD can be bought for half the price and will have no noticeable difference in an HTPC.

older generations may have firmware issues or other problems.... the newer the better with improved controllers.

Crucial is perfect too. They have excellent reliability rates (no SandForce crap either).
I would recommend only the Samsung and the Intel ones... anything else is wonky as hell.... tons of bad things I hear about SF controller based ones.
