Choice #1.

5 years warranty and is among the top SSD drives in quality. Up there with crucial, samsung, mushkin, intel, and corsair.

I would have to agree the Plextor would seem to be the better choice. 5 year warranty, slightly larger capacity, slightly less $moolah$, and better controller. The plextor uses a Marvell controller, while the Kingston uses a SandForce. Depending who you ask, you may hear one controller is better than the other, but I think the Marvell is the better in normal everyday useage.

Plextor received a raving review from Anandtech. With Marvell controller and SandForce-like speed, that's easily the choice.
