    looking for either a ~256gb or ~500gb SSD

    are there better (faster read/write SSDs) than these?

    i have an early 2011 MCP. 2.7cpu, 8gb Ram. i assume my SATA drive can handle any SATA III?

    Yes, your MBP supports SATA III so any SSD will work fine.

    Here is a speed comparison of the two drives you mentioned and they are pretty close. Honestly, unless you are using testing software, you are not going to be able to tell the difference between just about any drive you can buy today.

    A newer drive that is priced competitively is the Crucial MX100. Take a look at the reviewers remarks at the end of this article.
