Solid State Hell

There probably isn't any worse task than picking out the right SSD, not even slave labor can come close.
Today I shopped amazon/newegg for 2 SSD, 1 is for my new macbook pro (Feb 2011) which I'm going to use boot camp for windows 7 along with Adobe master collection/final cut/maya ect ect. A SSD is needed but I don't need to worry to much about space because I found a way to replace the CD drive and stick a second HDD in its place. What I plan to do is use the SSD as my main drive and use the stock 750GB as a backup storage solution since I don't use discs regularly (plus I got a external CD drive for 22 bucks).
the other SSD will be used on my desktop, it was a custom build so the fastest SSD that doesn't need to be replaced is very welcome.
Which comes down to what to get T_T having to choose between asyncromous and Syncromous, Sata II and III, Cost vs. Value, Negitave Reviews vs. Updated Firmware, Waiting vs. Rebates... There were a lot of choices however it came down to these. (I decided on 120ish range for both SSD)
HyperX by Kingston
I ended up going to the Kingston HyperX desktop kit (Price paid was $200 and a $60 Rebate is coming my way.) although I'm going to stick it in my Macbook Pro. Still undecided on a second one however what are your thoughts? There really isn't one clear cut winner after all things considered.
