Maybe there are only problems with some of the SSDs? If I've seen it right: everybody, who has problems, has a SSD with C1 suffix?
But why are some of them running fine in X220 with i5 but not with i7?

If it's the SSD's themselves at fault, we should be hearing about the problem elsewhere.
True but 1 - I am not looking elsewhere so I'm not sure whether other people are talking about it and 2 - it could be something to do with the combination of the two. Different drives use different controllers, etc.

Another one not working here
intel 310 mSATA INT-SSDMAEMC080G2C1
Looks like the version SSDMAEMC080G2L works and SSDMAEMC080G2C1 doesn't maybe the latest model??
What do people reckon? they can fix it with a bios update?

Alas, I can confirm the problems with this MSATA SSD: http://www.mydigitaldiscount.com/mydigitalssd-64gb-50mm-bullet-proof-msata-ssd/
I have an X220 4286CTO.

Hope it's ok to post this seeing as mines the tablet version, I have not been able to get the mSATA drive to work and I’m not sure why but here are my thoughts.
I have an X220T model: 4294CTO (that’s a tablet i7 with NO USB 3.0) I bought a Renice X3 mSATA (http://www.mydigitaldiscount.com/renice-120gb-k3vlar-50mm-sandforce-msata-pci-e-ssd/) to install and have 2 hard drives, well that was the plan. The mSATA is not recognized; I made many changes in the BIOS with no luck.
My drive happened to come with a SATA adapter, so using the adapter I was able to replace the factory drive and have it show up in the BIOS (also was able to format and fully use the drive in this manner) but I was never able to get the BIOS to see it when installed as mSATA.
Looking around the web makes me wonder if the pins are different on the drives or on the motherboards, I know Renice has 2 exact same drives just with different pin layouts (from all my research I’m almost sure I got the right one) also a few sites reference this (http://www.k3vlar.com/2011/04/12/renice-x3-series-50mm-msata-mini-sata/).
If anyone has any thoughts I'd like to hear them.
