Yes, you can create a RAID array with different brands of SSDs.

It's probably best to just use both drives separately. There's no fault tolerance with RAID-0, so if one of your drives dies then you lose all of you data.

TRIM is also not supported with drives in a RAID array so if you decide to create the array then Log off (not shut down) overnight once every other week or so to maintain drive performance.
