Summary: 7 years ago, my notebook was fast, very fast. After upgrade the RAM, OS, 7200RPM HDD, this NB is for " Quicken " use only, use it once a week..., until this SSD, CPU is not always 60%, RAM is down to 35%, doesn't need noisy cooling pad.
Summary: I bought several V300 ssd but stopped since the chips were changed which made the write speeds cut in half. Now that the HyperX is the same price that I bought the V300 for and the write speeds are faster. I will keep buying these until they make changes for the worse.
Summary: Kingston makes quality products and this one is no exception. I just wish they would have included software to migrate the contents of my HDD to this SSD (that's migrate NOT clone - there is a difference!). Competitive SSDs that include migration software are by far a better value.
Summary: Good bang for buck! I got a Watch Dog voucher for a free game included with my purchase of this SSD. SSD + Free Game = steal!!! I upgraded from a 120GB SSD because it was running out of space. 240GB is well more than enough to store the OS, applications and games.
