Excerpt: I do not use this as an internal drive, but in a StarTech dock station attached to the desktop via USB 3. Quick disk speed test of the Kingston drive on XP sp3 machine got 200 MB/sec write and 183 MB/sec read. Same machine using a standard internal rotating disk drive got 80 MB/sec write and 80 MB/sec read. Thus, the USB 3.0 attached Kingston drive can be used to capture SD video with no problem. HD video capture is possible, but that depends on the HD format.
Pros: I have 3 of these drives in my rig and one of which is just for my operating system. I am going on 2 years with these drives and have had no problems what so ever. I have also built multiple rigs for clients and they also have had no issues. The price which you can get this SSD for now is outstanding. The speed is lightning fast like most SSDs out now. I recommend this to all my clients for their builds.
Cons: The only thing that I do not like is the mount that it comes with. The blue color is great for blue themed builds but looks out of place in some others. This would be nice to see an all black mount. But this really isn't a con.
