Pros:

A good one is a decent value SSD. Since you can't visit NewEgg's warehouse and select the one you want, you'll have to wait and see.

Cons:

Crapshoot. A bad one is possibly slower than a mechanical HDD.

Other Thoughts:

450 read and write is acceptable for a $130-140 240GB SSD as of this writing; 187/195, however is not. I bought one on December 1st that performed acceptably and when I saw it on sale a month later I bought another. The second one was the lemon. NewEgg however, treated me very well during the RMA. I was disappointed with Kingston's explanation, which they repeat over and over to paying customers, that is that you can only use a certain measuring tool to get the advertised speed. Obviously Kingston is well aware that some of these SSD's use subpar NAND, controllers and firmware yet they cruise along and circulate them anyway, coasting on the original good reviews this SSD received at release. They then proceed to offer a pathetic excuse suggesting that it's somehow your fault because you're not testing it with training wheels like they did. This adds insult to injury and hardly encourages customer loyalty.

To recap, firmware 505: Good; firmware 506: Bad; firmware 520: Good; firmware 521: Bad.

Ye have been warned, young grasshopper, so therefore...BEWARE!
