My System Specs

Default Choice of SSD - Crucial or Kingston?

I want to buy a 1.8 in mSATA SSD to replace my laptop mSATA HDD. I found these two. Which do you think is better?

Crucial (CTFDDAA128MAG-1G1) 128GB RealSSD C300 1.8" SATA 3 Solid State Drive

Special order from Canadacomputers.com $240

Kingston SSDNow V+ 180 SVP180S2/128G 1.8" 128GB SATA II
Special order from Newegg $249

They are about the same price.

TIA

Edit: just found out the Crucial C300 is discontinued. Are manufacturers trying to get out of the 1.8 in SSD (cannot remember where I read it)? My problem is that the laptop is Vaio TT180c which is very small and can only take 1.8 in SSD with mSata.

Edit2: Crucial's own web site still has it for even lower price ($220US). So are there problems with this SSD?
