Learn SSD before you buy one!
25 February 2015
Summary: They say buying a SSD will speed up your pc? I bench marked mine and there is no difference in performance that I can see. After I bought it i learned not to fill it up more then half way. If you do, it will start to decline in performance. The less you write to you SSD the better of you are..
Summary: The drive itself is great. However, the upgrade kit is worthless. PROS: - Fast SSD drive CONS: - While software does indeed setup the OS on the new drive and copy all files over, Windows will still point to the old drive for the executables if you make it the slave drive (at least for me it did).
Summary: I bought this drive back in October of 2012 and it died about a month ago. However, Kingston's RMA process was simple and I had new drive about a week after I sent the old one in. Also, I got it for $59.99, which even now is a steal! Overall, it worked very well for about 14 months.
Summary: This drive is one of the best. It is very fast and very easy to install. Comes with screws and mounting bracket for 3.5" to 2.5". Highly recommended, and as usual hats off to Amazon and their fast and on time delivery. Item was very well packaged.
Excerpt: let's skip the pro's 'coz this drive is a fast one. The only con I noticed with the ssd has a weak sata connector. Mine broke off, don't know if this a manufacturing defect, design flaw or just a weak material used. You might be disappointed if your using a sata cable with a locking clip.
Pros: Easy To Install, Fast, Highly Compatible, Quiet
Summary: I found that this Kingston HyperX 3K 120 GB Upgrade Kit SATA III 2.5-Inch 6.0 Gb/s Solid State Drive SH103S3B/120G was a very fast SSD, for the avid gamer, and even the normal computer enthusiast.
Good hard drive, but the conversion software is a joke

Summary: The hard drive itself is a good hard drive, but the Acronis conversion software that came with it is a joke. I purposely paid an extra $20 for the ability to clone my current C: drive and then swap them out.
