Very fast. Works better than expected.
I bought 2 of these drives. They are very fast and I have not had any issues with them. Boot times are fast on my computers and file transfers are great. It is a Kingston HyperX........kinda says it all.

Experience: 7 Days

Very Fast, decent capacity
None as of yet.
This drive is extremely fast. Using it as a OS boot drive. Windows 7 loads to usable in about 30 seconds. File transfers to other Sata 3 drives are quick, copying to itself is extremely quick (about 150M/sec).

Extremely happy with this drive.

Very fast (SATA3), very weel packed by Kingston.
The screwdriver come with look little cheap ...
After testing and verification of various criticisms of the product, and very positive experience with Kingston, I opted for the HyperX SSD.

I already have a 240GB HyperX, I bought a second 240GB to create  a RAID 0, and I'm not disappointed! Connected to a GIGABYTE P67A-UD7-B3 equipped with two ports SATA3 controlled by an Intel chipset, this rock the house!

Experience: 2 Months
There is nothing bad to say about this SSD. It's lightning fast. I used several benchmark testing suites such as CPU-Z, Bench32, CrystalDisk, etc. which indicated the performance in real use actually exceeded Kingston's claims. Most impressive.
You must download the firmware update  from Kingston's website and then run the wizard. Simple as pie. This isn't really a con, its a good thing.
Its a plug&play SSD. It comes with a mount, screws, and a nice magnetic screw driver. You should probably plug in the SATA cable into a SATA III port to max out performance. They have two products, one is a kit and the other is not a kit, so read the specs first. They say SSD last a very long time, its a great investment. One more thing, the larger the size, the faster the performance. This means that a 240GB is faster than a 120GB, which is faster than a 60GB. In my opinion 60, and even a 120 are too small for use as a primary boot drive. But, you could take a couple of them and put them into a RAID0 which would increase speed yet again. Imagine, 2 240GB HyperX SSD's in RAID0 = over 1 GB per second. Smokin'.

One of the fastest SSDs available, more stable than the Corsair Force Series GT, Good looking SSDs
Price. But I got it when it's on sale anyway.
It's HyperX, what more to say? Got one of these when it's on sale. Mind blowing boot up speed. Even faster than my previously purchased 510 series. totally worth it.

Comment: Pros: Very Fast for a 25nm based drive. Great accessory options via different SKUs. Reasonable price for this market niche. Great Looks. 5K not 3K erase cycle NAND. Upgrade Kit version includes everything you could imaginably need.
