Bill, Very high end or not - $89 is a really good deal for 256GBs and will make 99% of the users very happy.

I have no own experience with Kingston but for that price I would buy it.

PS - I could not find it on the egg. You still have the link.

Wolfgang, you're like me, if it says SSD, I'll buy it. The newegg sale I got said the Kingston 240 was $129.99. Bill must be on a better list than me. Newegg.com - 48Hrs ONLY: 240GB SSD Under $130, Roku 2 XS Just $40.95 & MORE

For $130 I rather buy Mushkin because I know they will replace a defective bit even after years.

The Kingston had great reviews when it was released, about a month after the reviews made the rounds Kingston moved production from Taiwan to mainland China, firmware 5.0.5 to 5.0.6 and speeds fell by more than half. There was talk of a class action on bait and switch at one time.

Most of the time, for most users, you don't feel much difference. Some operations it can make a substantial difference. I have 2 840 pro's, a 256 and a 512 and they are fast, I have 3 Agility 3's, 1 60 and 2 120's, and they are also fast but not like the 840's. Bang for the buck probably goes to the OCZ's, about half as much money.

Believe me, in real life that does not mean anything. As long as the access time is in the 0.1 to 0,3ms range, you won't notice the difference.
I agree for most operation you don't see any difference, BUT if you work with large video files and do much editing you come to like the increase the higher end drives do provide. There are to many variables to say one is really better than the other, bottom line is bang for the buck and the budget drives win that.

For the average user a ssd shines on startup, after that a spinner can damn near open Thunderbird or Firefox as fast as a ssd. The people I make boxes for use them to get online and check email 90+% of the time, some would be happy with smoke signals

There was a mail in rebate listed on that one Steve, I'm sure... Maybe I am just crazy...Your link looks similar, but the colors are different, odd. I don't have the email, always clean up my deleted mail

Nah, their giveaways are clean (so far), it just checks the site to see that it is still active.

After installation, you will get this



But everything is unchecked by default and if you just press the close button, nothing extra is added.

Thank you A Guy and Britton!
