Price History (Excluding Tax & Combo Deals) History:


Like a midget gigolo... cheap, fast, small, and looks good!

from completed build PlayBox500

SSD on the cheap not much more to say than that.

from completed build The HP Snowy Phoenix

Could be a bit more consistent as far as boot times go. 2nd SSD used is for Ubuntu.

from completed build Nyuu's UPDATE ^-^
  • For games that benefit from fast Disk speeds
from completed build Living Room Gaming Hexahedron

Memory Controller Swap aside. This is a good SSD. I think everybody needs to join the SSD Master Race the difference is night and day. To the point that I end up putting ssd's in low power builds and older builds to make the computer feel snappier.

from completed build The Challenger!

Learned after buying it that Kingston pulled a bait and switch and made them slower. As a first time SSD owner I didnt notice it but I will be getting a better one soon.

from completed build Uncle's PC

Pros: Light weight, fast, good price for performance, again KINGSTON.

Cons: I can't find anything bad at this SSD.

from completed build Project "Big Fish"

Boots up VERY quickly, takes almost no time at all to open a program.

Despite what people say about the bait and switch with the whole firmware issue, It performs better than a HDD and that's all I need.

Seen reviews that say this SSD can be a Turd. But I have had no performance issues with it so far. Do wish it was a little larger, but that was an error on my part, can't blame the drive for that. If it becomes sluggish in the Future I'll come back and knock off a star or two from my rating to reflect that..
