Need help deciding: Kingston 240GB SSD vs. Sandisk 256GB SSD

I'm leaning more towards Sandisk because of their rep, other than that I don't really know enough about either to decide... Any help? https://pcpartpicker.com/parts/compare/kingston-internal-hard-drive-sv300s3n7a240g%2Csandisk-internal-hard-drive-sdssdp256gg25/

Sandisk. The v300 is very slow.

I wouldn't recommend the V300.. I do like Kingston but the hyperX series

I have had zero problems with my Sandisk.

Nowt wrong with Sandisk. V300 is slow for large data transfers, fine for everyday and gaming (might be a bit slower but you would be hard pressed to notice the difference) but do they really deserve our custom after the silent switch-over to asynchronous NAND?

They use the same controllers, but the SanDisk models tend to use better quality nand. They are one of the best nand producers across most types of storage media (especially true for micro sd)
