Summary: The Good: Arrived quickly, especially for USPS delivery. Nicely packaged. Came with a very nice blue anodized aluminum adapter for installation in a standard 3.5" HDD bay. Feels very solid, also very sleek looking. Took Windows 7 64 like a champ. No errors of any kind yet. Cold boots in less than 20 seconds most times! Software installation flies as compared to a standard HDD. Very nice option, especially for the $90 I paid for it.
Summary: Price point was good for me. I had a 128GB Crucial M4 SSD and needed a bit more space so I decided to pick up this Kingston HyperX 240GB SSD. I was expecting a little better performance but it seems to be on par with my other drive. Not a bad thing, just had higher expectations that may have been unfounded. Cool looking drive, I'm kind of disappointed this one is hiding away in a machine and isn't viewable.
Summary: I have 7 of these drives. I use them in all of my builds. Fantastic drive that has never given me a single problem. People gauge the ssd on boot time. Kinda not fair because a PC still has to get through bios. But after mine is through bios it boots in under 10 seconds. in total about 15 seconds from a cold boot.
Summary: I have 4 of these drives. None have failed over a 9 month period. Kingston has always produced reliable drives, RAM and flash memory. I have 2 in 2 laptops and 2 in 2 desktops. All rate high (7.6) on Windows scale. I use 1 of them as a Steam and Origin games drive and it loads quickly, no freeze-ups and very quick response. Can't beat the price of these drives. You get what you paid for and these are very good drives. Highly recommended.
Summary: Pretty decent SSD for the price, seq read speed is a little slower than my Intel 330 but write speed is much better... The HyperX performs much better, compare to the 330, in all other tests (AS SSD and CrystaldiskMARK (On my Asus P8Z77 and i5 r4.2). The drive looks like it's made of quality component, hope it'll last. I'm using this drive for games only, the 330 is my primary, but will be swapping the drives soon as the Hyperx seems to be a better drive for Windows.
Pros: Price/performance, Quality look and feel, Fast enough
Pros: Very fast. Best single component upgrade you can get. The kit is nice, can use internally or also comes with external case, has everything you could possible want, even the screwdriver to install it. Want some more of them!
Cons: Still a bit expensive. Waiting for another sale for awhile now...and waiting...and waiting...
