Reviews

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 First Gaming PC Build!

As a first time SSD user I really like how fast it loads my OS. Good for the price.

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

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

from completed build My Personal Rig, The Mongoose

SCAM. They changed the memory controller from a Toshiba ti an *** brand *** controller, see pictures for legitimate specs. That being said, it works and is much better than a HDD, just do not purchase it and support their evil bait and switch. Also, it comes formatted in MBR which is incompatible with motherboards using an UEFI bios and you will need to convert it to GPT which is annoying.

from completed build Project "Big Fish"

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