I'm looking at http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/solid-state-drives/solid-state-drives-ssd.html wondering what I should get.

Are people getting intel 330's for l2arc and 520's for slog?

For the slog, you should look for a SLC technology SSD which saves unwritten data on power failure. In Intel-speak, this is called "Enhanced Power Loss Data Protection". I am not running across any Intel SSDs which claim to match these requirements.

Extreme write IOPS claims in consumer SSDs are normally based on large write caches which can lose even more data if there is a power failure.
