Kingston V300 or Crucial M500 in sales today?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Amazon has finally got something that I want in the black friday deals.
Later today the Crucial M500 and Kingston V300 240GB SSDs are going on sale. The previous Crucial 120GB SSD sale was 50% off the RRP (to £56), so Im hoping that the 240GB ones will follow suit and come down to around £85-£90.

But Im not sure which one is the better of the two.
Can I have some clues?

Ill be using it for my OS and a few games.

Or would I be better off going for the 120GB Crucial SSD thats on sale for £56?
Thanks

I was wondering that, and just looked it up it looks like overall the Kingston is better. I'm basing this on the assumption that random read speed is going to be a more important factor than some of the others.
