Options for a SSD upgrade

I wanted to know if anyone has experience with this ZIF SSD upgrade on the original MBA A1237. I see OWC has a drive but it's expensive for this old a machine.

I see these drives but am unsure if it will work in a Mac::

1.8" Kingspec ZIF SSD 128GB for MacBook Air

i.e. $95.00 versus $ 229 for a 128GB
