What is the difference in performance between a Kingston 64GB SSDNow V100 SSD (SV100S2/64GZ) and a Kingston 64GB SSDNow V-Series G2 (SNV425-s2/64GB)?

I went to the retailer intending to buy two of the V100s, but he erroneously gave me one of each. Didn't realize it until I had them both installed, stripped in RAID and running. The V100 was cheaper (onsale) then the other, so if they are both identical performance wise (or pretty close to it), I'll just live with them. However, if the G2 is significantly less performing than the V100, I'd consider going to back for the exchange.

I too had some confusion on the differences between the V100 series and the V-Series G2 (SNV425-S2). This is what experts have to say about this:

Anandtech:
"The SSDNow V 100 is an update to the SSDNow V Series drives, both of which use the JMicron JMF618 controller."

So apparently the V100 and the V-Series are almost identical with the V100 being the "newer" series and have access to newer firmware. The performance therefore should be similar- possibly favoring the V100 but this depends on the firmware.
