Summary: Caught this bad boy on sale on Microsoft's website a few months back for around $120.00 shipped (that is not a typo.) Best purchase I have ever made. Boot time to windows is less then 13 seconds (this is from power on to desktop and all services loaded.
Summary: Read the directions or do your home work. The SSD goes inside of your PC - the old drive becomes an external drive if you do not have any more SATA ports or have a laptop. Set your BIOS to AHCI *** before you clone your drive for best performance.

Summary: I've had this product for a couple of years now and am very satisfied with it. In fact, technology has gotten even better and less expensive so I'm probably going to replace it (again) with an updated, higher density SS drive.

Summary: This review is for the Kingston HyperX 120GB SSD Upgrade Kit, NOT the newer Kingston HyperX 3K. I bought this SSD because I'd been looking into upgrading to one of these for some time. I had just been waiting for the prices to come down enough. I bought this one when it was $190.
