I recommend a Deda Blackstick. Strong, light and easy to set.

Can't comment on the Alien, but had the Record and thought it was terrible...a real rip off at the price charged. See the review section of this site for more info.

The USE Alien MTB post will work if you need a 27.2mm or larger. USE does make a 25mm MTB post but the US importer didn't bring it into the country last spring when I was looking for one. I was lucky that I could use the 25mm road post that is 170mm long. I have been very pleased with it and didn't had any problems with setup.

I use the Campag post, and have had no problems. I am 73-75 kgs (approx 160lbs). If you follow the instructions, and use the Campag collar, you should be ok.
