Within these two you wouldn't go wrong either way but if you go by benchmarks Crucial>Kingston. I have the A400 installed in my notebook which i'm typing from now :p
Thank you, from the review i saw that the A400 is faster in Random Read, while the BX500 is Faster in sustained write.
Is your pc with the A400 responsive?

In general usage the Crucial will be a very little bit faster... but to the point you wouldn't even notice it. Coming from an HDD these things are going to be like engaging warp drive. Either would be a good choice. I'm quite partial to the Crucial drives myself. I've had a few generations of Crucial SSDs and they all still work and have never done me wrong... that said I've also had a lot of Kingston RAM and that has all worked great. If their SSDs are of similar quality then you won't have an issue with them either.
