I was planning to get a set of teensy wire-gauge drill bits from these people:

I noticed that they sell both carbon steel and high-speed steel versions, and 
the price difference is quite small.

Is there any reason to choose carbon over high-speed if the price is the same?  
Do carbon steel drill bits have any possible advantage other than sometimes 
being cheaper?
