I'm looking at the new ISR 4300 series Application Experience (AX)bundles. From what I see they - require (2) 200GB SATA SSD drives. I already know what the official answer is - but does anyone know if Generic (Kingston, Crucial, etc.) drives will work? Cisco's branded drives (SSD-SATA-200G) run around $1200 (my cost) which adds up for 40+ drives.

more than likely any enterprise class SSD will work just fine but in a not supported by Cisco environment.  It really depends upon your read/write percentages.  The more writes the more you need to pay for it to last the lifetime you expect  

Enterprise Performance SSD's have higher endurance, and hence support workload which are more write intensive i.e. Intel 710 SSD's, which supports 5X full SSD writes) as compared to  Enterprise Value SSD's which are targeted for read intensive application,  i.e.  Micron SSD (supports 1X full SSD writes/days)
