Pros: Great SSD that has been rock solid for the 2 years I've owned it.
With a fresh install of windows, this thing would boot from full power off to ready to go on the desktop in under 20 seconds.
Cons: It's not a con for this particular card, but anyone wanting to game with this, I recommend going at least 240G or higher.
With the 120G version, I can only have either SC2, WoW or D3 installed on the SSD, with the other 2 needing to go on the HDD secondary.
I was on a budget at the time of buying this, but it is my one regret.
Other Thoughts: From Kingston SSD Toolbox V1.0 after 2 years of ownership:

Pros: -Good quality
-Great capacity / size ratio
-Not the slimmist, but slimmer than most comparable chargers on the market
-Decent aesthetic appeal
-Cords and connectors are good quality.
Cons: -Does not come with an AC adapter.
-One of the heavier chargers on the market, but I knew this going in.
-Difficult to fit both the charger and all the supplied cables and connectors into the carrying pouch. You're pretty much limited to the cable and connector of your choice. This can also be a pro in a way since the pouch is snug.
Other Thoughts: I compared many chargers before selecting this one. My basic criteria was a large capacity that was relatively slim (i.e. not a chunky brick in your hand), somewhat minimalist appearance, good reviews by others, and decent price. I was able to get this on sale for $34 with free shipping and other than the vendor (not newegg) taking a few days to process the order, I am very pleased with my purchase.
To put the size and weight into perspective, it almost feels like i'm holding a HDD in my hand.
Came with a felt carrying pouch, 2 stretch usb cables, and 4 connectors (2 diff ipod, mini and micro usb)
**Does not come with AC adapter.**
I luckily had a Kindle Fire Rapid Charger that charged the device just fine and did it in only a couple hours.
