The very best? No. Great enough for 95% of us out there? Yes.

Summary: Up to this point in time, this is the 3rd SSD I have owned: an old 60gb vertex 2 SSD, my factory macbook pro's internal SSD, and now this one. I bought this as a main boot / application drive for my desktop PC, and have really enjoyed it. I particularly picked this one out due to its solid performance / price ratio. My older 60gb one just wasn't enough to even contain the win7 boot system, which tends to [unfortunately] expand over time with updates / usage.
Yet another affordable Entry-Level from Kingston...

Summary: So this is Kingston's "EVEN MORE affordable entry-level line" SSD. Kingston also has these available: Kingston Digital 120GB SSDNow V300 Kingston HyperX 3K 120 GB SATA III Prices have also come down for those models, that you might as well get the HyperX 3K (even though it's been out for 2 years). It uses the same SandForce 2281 controller. It's really going to come down to pricing.
Summary: I was curious how much difference there might be between this drive and a Crucial m4 64GB mSATA I had sitting in an old Asus netbook. Turns out, in addition to the additional storage at a much lower cost, there was lots. With the old drive still installed I ran a PassMark performance test and also timed how long it took to copy a 700MB file containing about 800 items. Then I cloned my system to the Kingston SSD and ran the same tests.

Summary: I got this for my computer savvy 15 year old son who needed a faster hard drive. He was able to install it no problem and said that mine craft was running at least 76 frames which he said was great. He seems really happy with it.
Summary: I see that Kingston have raised the price on all of their drives. More than likely to pay for all of the failed ones that they have to replace. Not worth the data loss and labor time to use these unreliable drives.
Cons: Died after 8 months of use. was in a raid setup with 5 other same exact drives. Was fast until it disappeared from the raid and is now completely dead. I will never buy another one of these drives from Kingston again. I will have to warranty this one and that is it for this company. These drive do not even get warm with use just a junk controller that fails for no reason.
Summary: I bought a Kingston SSD a couple years ago and it has taken a lot of abuse without any issues. Back then, buying anything other than Intel seemed like a gamble, but reliability and speed have improved across all brands since then. Prices have also come down, and options like this HyperX Fury are particularly tempting for those that have yet to jump in to solid state, or just want a less expensive drive for a device that is capped by a SATA II interface anyway.
Summary: I received this today and replaced the 5400 HDD in my PS3 with this SSD. I have to say the difference is amazing! From boot up to game starts to saving and installing games it is seriously fast. Honestly I think SSD's should be standard on all gaming consoles and rigs as the difference is substantial. For this price you would be crazy not to upgrade to an SSD as it's is such a significant difference in performance. Overall this is an exceptional drive.
