from completed build Jack the Ripper

Was fooled by Kingston's solid reputation, this SSD does not match up to its similarly priced competition.

from completed build Fairly Xhilarating

At it's current price, decent but far from the best. You're better off with a samsung ssd 850 evo or a sandisk extreme pro.

The transfer rates seem a bit lower than advertised. If you're tight on money though you won't be disappointed, especially if you're upgrading from an HDD.

One thing to note if you're a new SSD owner when you purchase this. Run only you're operating system and maybe 1 or 2 games that might benefit from it... like world of warcraft (you will see a difference in performance for a game like this). IF you're uncertain of what games might run better with an SSD, google it.

SSDs will not give you an increase otherwise, in-game wise, providing only a faster load speed to get in game. So keep your HDD for most games, media files, etc.
