MBP RAM upgrade vendor - recommendations?

I've been searching for a 16GB RAM upgrade for my upcoming 17" MBP purchase. It seems like people go with either OWC or Crucial. In looking at their kits, they seem identical except for voltage. Crucial is 1.35 whereas OWC is 1.5v.

And then there is price. Crucial is $260 for the kit - OWC is $320. That's a significant difference if the memory is the same.

Is there any difference between the two companies that would justify paying the premium to OWC? Anyone had any experience with either vendor that would help me make a decision?

Once again, thanks in advance for any help.
