5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Stand-Alone Drive)

Pros: Fast...... Faster than most.
PC boots from POST to Desktop around 3 or 4 seconds even with the drive almost maxxed. Uses a good platform driver for data storage.

Cons: I want another.

1 out of 5 eggsGood, but cr*ppy quality

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Stand-Alone Drive)

Pros: - Speed

Cons: - Build quality
- Durability

Other Thoughts: I've been using this drive for 2 years (only for the OS), and it's dead now. It froze out of nowhere, then I managed to format it and reinstall Windows on it (it wasn't even there in the drive list). 1 month later, it did it again.

What a cr*ppy product, do NOT buy; if you do, be sure to back it up, because you will for sure have this kind of bug along the way. And, the plug quality is pretty bad, too.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent quality budget SSD

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Stand-Alone Drive)

Pros: -Has been booting my primary PC every day for over a year with no issues
-Boots incredibly fast, read speed is over 500mb/s as measured by CrystalDiskMark more than a year later.

Cons: -Write speed seems to have fallen somewhat over the past year. I didn't measure it with CrystalDiskMark when I first installed it, so this is a purely anecdotal observation.

Other Thoughts: -Even though the write speed seems slower now, it's still much faster than a traditional magnetic spinning hard drive. Plus, the read speed matters much more to me.

5 out of 5 eggsWas considering Ripjaws for my build instead, but...

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Stand-Alone Drive)

Pros: My Ripjaws feels MARGINALLY better, I couldn't resist buying this ram for the super sexy black heatsink.

Cons: This is probably NOT the best product out there for the price. "Probably"

No real cons here though, you understand what you are buying and you get exactly that.
