they both seem decent and got good reviews. i already have nicer ssds for my desktop but i wanted to add a small cheap one to my old laptop and these 2 stood out. any opinions or advice on these or other options? want to spend as little as possible !

If you're looking to spend as little as possible, either of those options is no better or worse than anything else similarly priced.

I'd perhaps budget a few more dollars to get something a little more proven though; dead SSDs and lost data aren't much fun, and can be more easily avoided by buying something that's higher regarded (something like a Samsung EVO 850 or whatever).

true i just dont want to invest any money into the laptop really. i figured for under 40 bucks i could spark some life into it but any more i'd rather just buy a new chromebook or something

If you are just flipping a coin I'd go with the Trion which unlike the ECO3 includes the SSD management utility support, has the higher rated 4K read IOPS and is made by a fab house.
