    I have bought both of these drives for the same price and need to return one. I plan on putting one it my MBpro

    Intel X25-m

    vs


    Kingston SSDNow V+ Series SNVP325-S2B/128GB 2.5" 128GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

    It looks like the later has hardware TRIM. Does that play in affect with the outlook that Lion will only do TRIM for Apple SSDs?

    Performance is hard to read the difference...?

    Just so you know buy.com has the 120gb x25m for $159.99 after 30 MIR and $10 off coupon. Might want to return both and get that? I don't know how much you paid for them?

    That's where I got it. Now I just need to figure out which one to use and which one to return.

    Ahh I see. Well if it was me i'd keep the intel for sure. The V+ has good benchmarks but they are nonetheless benchmarks. Intel should be better for battery life and reliability too.
