This SSD arrived quickly, 3 days after ordering.

I purchased this SSD because my Deskstar 1TB drive was getting really slow.

The drive is really fast, comes with a 3.5 inch to a 2.5 inch adapter bracket and the appropriate screws.

The weird thing is, when I did a CrystalDisk Benchmark I only got about 200 MB/s write and read.
But I really don't care that I'm not getting the full speed, it's already amazingly fast.

I recommend this drive for anyone who wants to do a quick SSD upgrade.

Does the job, probably should have bought a larger size because it was a struggle migrating my os to this SSD with all my files, then I destroyed it and had to start all over because i followed a guide online that said it was "Fine" to not copy the users folder across. Don't listen to that, It lies, it will prevent you from logging in when you boot it!!!
5 Stars because my computer is now RIDICULOUSLY fast and i am highly impressed :D

Just as expected my system is now lightning fast and most software launches almost instantly.
The external enclosure with USB3 interface is also very handy to keep the old disk ready if you forgot to copy anything and use it as a backup at the same time.

Even down to looks, this Solid State Drive is perfect.
Components have never needed to look good as such, but in an age where the internal components of a PC are visible, you get the best of both worlds, that is, looks and superb performance!
Even with a top spec i7, this drive will offer you almost instantaneous start-up, and super speed access to all the items stored on it, although I use it for storing program's, and use a SATA drive for storing everything else (mainly due to size:price ratio), and this works perfectly for me.
Aside from looks, Kingston have been one of the very few USB stick manufacturers that produce good quality, and the data doesn't become corrupt, even after years of use.
It was also packaged, and delivered, safely and securely.

My computor now boots in 15 - 20 seconds still after 6 month buying this drive. If you considering upgrading too a SSD from a hard drive, do it! I am using it on a Sata 2 motherboad so its only running at half its normal speed but is still amazingly fast so dont let that put you off buying a SSD. Buy it you wont regret it.

Decided since the price of SSD's have come down so much, I would buy this one. Kingston has always been a leader in flash based hardware and is a name I have come to trust with quality, this SSD is no exception. Of course I have to say the difference between using HDD and SSD is mind blowing, installing an SSD is by far teh single best improvement and investment anyone can make to their computer. The Sandforce controller is phenomenal, the chips use transparent compression to save space and speed up the IOPS for enhanced performance. Whilst the capacity of 120GB might not seem great, the system performs super fast and super smooth. From pushing the power switch to arriving at the desktop, it takes just 20 secs; and the shut down performs in less than 5 secs. Programs open immediately, which is to say they open in an eye-blink.

On installing it, it did cause some initial problems with the AMD display drivers, but this was easily fixed by re-installing the OS and switching to AHCI in the BIOS, rather than SATA IDE. AHCI improves the speed of the drive considerably.

I like that the drive comes with a 3 year warranty, but bearing in mind that this drive is capable of performing 3000 re-writes, you could effectively re-write your entire drive every single day for the next 10 years before it would wear out, which is something the average customer is never going to achieve in 3! ;)

The drive is also exceptionally good looking with an eye catching finish in brushed steel.
