I would like to upgrade the harddrives on my dad's 2008 macbook pro and my wife's 2010 macbook to SSD. I have questions?

Both are running Mountain Lion.
I'm thinking about getting crucial SSD drives; but I'm concerned about their long term performance. I understand Mountain Lion has TRIM support, but Crucial SSD's also have garbage collection? And these work together, and so you should have both? Or they don't, and using both will ruin everything? I be confused.
If there be other warnings regarding the use of third party SSD's in apple laptops, I'd love to hear them.
