Phil, 335s were OEM so they will only be on Giants / Spesh full bike builds etc. Unless CRC or Wiggle get hold of a huge over stock order from China !!

RECONS or REVELATIONS are a really safe bet. You can't get a much better "Fit it and leave it " fork.

The RECON 351 is the big seller. It comes in Coil or Air. The air being the lighter of the two. I have always ridden air forks so cannot really comment on coils.

The RECONS are 200 here or even 215 with the poploc. This allows you to completely lock them out for climbing etc.

Or if you want something really trick, and get the best of both worlds go for the Rockshox REVELATION U-Turn. You can adjust the travel using a knob on the top of the stanchion from 85mm - 130mm. So you could have 90mm in Woburn and 120mm in Wales. Perfect !! They are 240 here.

I used them on my Blur and loved them. They took a few months to bed in, but were super smooth. Better than 400+ Fox RLCs Talas etc IMO.

I have got the new Marzocchi XC 700 ATA's, and they are adjustable from 100 - 140. I think its great, as you effectively have 2 x pairs of forks in one at the twist of a button.

Go safe, go Rockshox. If you are buying Marzocchis then stay away from 2006 - 2007 forks, as there were a lot of problems, although 2008 forks have all the new components.
