Pros: - Cheap way to increase performance on an aging machine
- Not a weird off-brand that I've never heard of
Cons: - Only 120GB.
Other Thoughts: This was a great deal. I used it along with a memory upgrade to breathe new life into an aging desktop with an AMD Athlon X2 3-core CPU. Windows 10 boots in seconds instead of minutes. Overall system performance is so much better than before, as to be expected when coming from a spinning disk. It gives me slightly more peace of mind when buying a brand like Kingston since (I assume) they are a more established storage manufacturer with an equally established customer support service, but I've had zero problems with this drive over the few months it's been in use.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - Low price for 32GB of DDR4 goodness
- Looks really sleek on my black and white MSI motherboard and with my black and white NZXT power supply
Other Thoughts: Upgraded the motherboard in one of my home server lab ESXi hosts for the sole purpose of having the ability to use more RAM. It's crazy that a mini-ITX board with 2 memory slots can support 32GB of memory - wow! These modules have the added benefit of looking really cool in my case. I'm very satisfied given the price, so far they have been working perfectly.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - Noticeable speed increase (subjectively, see below) from the OCZ Vertex 3 it replaced
- Great price per GB, at least at the time when I purchased it
- Going on 6 months with no issues
Cons: - None!
Other Thoughts: I had a 120GB OCZ Vertex 3 in my primary desktop for years, but over time, I was running out of space and running out of programs I was willing to uninstall. I had heard mixed reviews about OCZ in the past, but since they are now Toshiba drives, I was a little less hesitant (although, I never had a single issue with my Vertex 3, which is now living out the rest of it's life in an Acer netbook). After installing this Trion, I noticed my boot time was almost halved, however, I did a clean install of Windows and re-installed my applications, so it could have just been the fresh start that made my whole system snappier.READ FULL REVIEW
