  1. Choice #1.

    5 years warranty and is among the top SSD drives in quality. Up there with crucial, samsung, mushkin, intel, and corsair.
  2. 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.
  3. Plextor received a raving review from Anandtech. With Marvell controller and SandForce-like speed, that's easily the choice.
  4. Of the two, the Plextor.
    Anand's review (It's for the 256 gig version which should be slightly faster than the 128 gig model):

  5. Kingston HyperX 3K 120GB < a sandforce beast,i'm using it right now!
