The PNY XLR8 PRO, or the Kingston SSDNow V300? They are both 120GB, both are $79.99, and both have 4 stars. The XLR8 sounds faster, but I know advertised speeds should be taken with a grain of salt. My instincts say to go XLR8 but I've been using two Kingstons, and they've worked fine so far.

So I need to know which is faster, and if one is more reliable.

Suggestions for anything in a similar price range are more than welcome.

(Also, as a note, my motherboard is only SATA II, though that's only relevant when comparing to my RAID set up -- will one of these drives be faster than my two slower drives in RAID? I'm sure they will, as they top at 261MB writes, but I want opinions.)

In my post on Tom's Hardware, I was recommended to get the Samsung 840 EVO 120gb for $10 more. I was wondering if it's worth the extra price, and if, despite its specs, if it's faster than the other two?
What about the Kingston HyperX 3K? (It's also on Amazon for $85)

Note: my budget is fairly strict.
