3 out of 5 eggsPricing Mistake...??

Pros: Average SSD. Keeps up with the rest.

Cons: PRICE!!! $349 for 120 GBs. That's got to be a misprint, right Newegg? I got mine for $99 6 months ago.

Other Thoughts: This is a "solid" solid state drive and does what it's supposed to do. But, if the price I am seeing here is correct, that would be ridiculous. That's over $2 per GB. I hope it is just a misprint as I got mine for $99. Most SSD's are around 70 - 80 cents per gig now a days and continue to drop. DON'T BUY IT AT THIS PRICE unless you are in the market for a booty intrusion.

5 out of 5 eggs2 Years and Counting

Pros: Excellent SSD. Excellent speed and reliability. I have had for over two years now and use the computer daily.

Using AS SSD Benchmark utility, I was able to get a score of 167(R) and 207(W). Individual scores were: 467MB/s Seq Read, 160MB/s Seq Write, 0.123ms Read Acc. time, and .357ms Write Acc time.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: You must use the Windows utility to partition and format this drive. I had to learn this the hard way. Do not use the software that comes with the drive if you are installing Windows 7 64-bit.

5 out of 5 eggsBuying another

Pros: Love the speed.
Internet is much more snappier.
Games run faster.
Very fast read and write speeds.
I am buying another one (read other thoughts)

Cons: Price? is that a con?

Other Thoughts: I am buying the standalone version of this one. I really love the speed of this SSD. I want to Raid-0 them together for bigger main drive space. One of these is just enough for windows, apps and only 1 MMO, like WoW or SWTOR. If I had 2 of these I could install another MMO and maybe a few more games for sure. I am just waiting for Newegg to restock these SSD's since they are getting sold out quick.

5 out of 5 eggsalmost a year now, perfect

Pros: Has worked flawlessly for almost a year now. I had one BSOD like the first day, my fault (during Windows 7 64-bit install), none since. I use my system daily for at least 3+ hours. This drive runs cools, everything opens instantly. I would not hesitate to purchase another Kingston

Cons: None, absolutely none

Other Thoughts: I am surprised that the price is still this high. I think I paid around $200 after the rebate. It listed at $240 at the time, so this is a good price drop. But you get what you pay for. I tried another ssd first at a lower price, it had received positive press but had a rep for BSODs, and that's exactly what I got, one BSOD after another. This drive has been absolutely problem-free.

5 out of 5 eggsReliable and fast

Pros: Much faster than a HD. I was blown away about how much faster this computer is, the windows boot animation in windows 7 doesn't even have time to finish. Games load a lot faster too, great drive. Also doesn't make ANY noise at all.

I bought this in December of 2011 and I have had none of the problems that I have read about with SSD's.

Mine had a mail-in rebate and I had no problem getting the rebate.

Cons: Expensive, I was hoping to buy a second one because my first is getting full. But the price is still over $200, I was hoping for more of a drop. The price currently is pretty much the same price I paid after mail-in rebate in December.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome, Solid Drive

Pros: Incredibly fast. As fast as the fastest sandforce drives. No (newegg is making me use a term other than "B" and "S") where the transfer rate plummets at 50% capacity like the Vertex 4 drives. Rock solid reliability. No issues at all. Compare the 1 star reviews of this drive and those of OCZ, and even though OCZ is a much more popular brand, tell me which one you would trust your data with.

Cons: Somewhat higher price than other drives when it's not on sale, though well worth it. Tell me if the price premium was worth it when your OCZ drive fails in a month.
Not one of the biggest names in the SSD space, but just take a look at its reliability ratings compared to the other more popular brands.

Other Thoughts: I know, I was like- Kingston? But I picked this drive up on sale in December of last year and I couldn't be happier with it. No blue screens, no problems resuming from sleep, and most importantly, no data loss. This has been an exemplary drive from the very beginning, just make sure you have the latest firmware update.

I'm looking to get a 200GB+ class SSD in the near future and all signs are pointing to another Hyper X drive

5 out of 5 eggsRock solid performance, no problems.

Pros: After 2 years of beating my head against a wall with OCZ Sandforce SSD's and their daily crashes, I decided to try this one and couldn't be happier. Installed in Oct 2011, updated the firmware, and not a single BSOD since, nor do I ever have to shut my system down unless required to by a Windows update.

Cons: Updating the firmware took a couple of emails to Kingston tech support, but they helped me figure it out. I forget now why, but the updating software couldn't see the drive until I followed the CSR's instructions, then it updated the first try.

Other Thoughts: The price has dropped about $50 since I bought mine and should continue to go down with NAND chips flooding the market lately.
