Crucial M500 or MX100 SSD?

I'm trying to decide which SSD I want to buy, please help me choose.

Price difference = M500 is $10.00 cheaper than the MX100

M500 = 120GB - 6Gb/s - Read: 500MB/s Write:130MB/s
MX100 = 128GB - 6Gb/s - Read: 550MB/s Write:150MB/s

I know that the MX100 is supposed to be the replacement for the M500 but I can't find many reviews for the MX100 and the ones I have found seem to say that the M500 is still slightly better in certain ways. Whereas I have no trouble find a ton of great reviews for the M500.

I realize I might be nitpicking here but it's my first build so I really want to make sure I make the best choices.

Thanks for any help!

    If it were me, the extra $10 is worth the performance and capacity, albeit both are minor.

    Well the $10 wasn't really the issue for me, I just wanted to give whatever information I could about the two.

    It was more cause I couldn't find many user reviews for the MX100 which had me wondering if it was actually better. Going by the specs I assume the MX100 is the better buy. I just wanted to make sure it actually is the better of the two.

    Thanks for the help
