Exclamation JG M5-A4 vs. Broxa MP5

BEFORE ANYONE FLAMES THIS THREAD, I WOULD LIKE TO RECONFIRM THAT THIS THREAD IS IN THE N00BIE TANK -- YES IT IS.
Now, on to my N00BIE question.

Hey everyone,

I'm new to airsoft and am looking to get age verified, so I can get access to the classifieds, but in the meantime I've browsed various retail sites, including BuyAirsoft.ca, 007Airsoft, CHiX Airsoft (anyone have additional information on this one?), and various Canadian airsoft dealers.
It is needless to say, I presume, that anyone new to airsoft would not be able, financially and emotionally, to hand over a couple bills at the click of a button. Being from Taiwan, I know very well that the prices of the Canadian-legal counterparts are inflated by around three times or even more; I'm not about the complain about a sport I am thinking about getting into, but once again I am merely stressing the amount of consideration (financially) when buying. All in all, I'm being "cheap", as of now, even if I acknowledge that "what you pay for is what you get".

Anyways, I was looking at the Jing Gong M5-A4 (listed on chixsoft.com for $230) in contrast to the MP5 BROXA EVOLUATION (listed on shooftsoft.ca for about $230 as well) which seem like they are affordable, introductory smg's, even though I found out that many don't consider the MP5 as a primary after snooping around here in the forums. On top of that, I've noticed that the JG is listed to shoot 340-400 fps, while the Broxa shoots 400 fps. Are these numbers accurate?

So -- when it comes down to aspects of durability, reliability, and (potential) upgrades, -- here it comes -- which is better?
