5 out of 5 eggsExcellent SSD so far

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Stand-Alone Drive)

Pros: It's fast. Windows 7 boots in 8 seconds tops. It's also feels like it's very good quality.

Cons: I don't have time to go get a drink before Windows boots.

Other Thoughts: Great SSD that I bought mainly because of the Watch Dogs offer. I probably would have bought the 120GB model if it weren't for that, but I'm actually very happy I got the extra space. It made Windows migration a breeze. I don't think the 120 GB model would have made it so easy.

5 out of 5 eggsstill running strong

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Stand-Alone Drive)

Pros: I bought 2 of these back in 2012 during the black friday sale. I've been running them in raid 0 on several builds and they are still running as strong as when I bought them. Just a follow up review for my previous review dated 12/11/14

Cons: still not free

Other Thoughts: thinking about grabbing 2 more for a 4 ssd raid 0 seeing as the price has dropped even more than when i first bough them.

5 out of 5 eggsStill working great!

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Stand-Alone Drive)

Pros: I've been using this drive mainly for my OS and games that I play frequently. I purchased the drive a little over 2 years ago and it's still running great. No slow downs or apparent drive failures of any kind. This company has earned my trust and I'll look to them for future purchases.

Cons: I wish the drive was this cheap when I first purchased it. Not a serious con.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Stand-Alone Drive)

Pros: + Excellent build quality
+ LSI Sandforce controllers have lost some of their sizzle to Samsung, Barefoot 3, Marvel and others but the Sandforce controller has one of the best algorithms to reduce write wear on the NAND
+ Includes a 2/5" to 3.5" metal drive bay adapter

Cons: - The drive bay adapter is BRIGHT blue! If you have a case with a side window and are concerned with looks, you might not care for the color.
- No drive management software included what-so-ever. Samsung really has a significant lead on this aspect of the SSD market right now.

Other Thoughts: I used this drive in a new build for my mother-in-law. The ASUS A55BM-E motherboard I paired it with lacks a SATA 3 - 6 GB/s pot but that's what you get when buying based on combo deals and promo codes.

Crystal Disk Mark test results:

Seq Read: 276.1 Write: 254.5
512K Read: 263.5 Write: 255.6
4K Read: 33.45 Write: 64.53
4K QD32 Read: 181.2 Write: 168.7

I must say, these numbers are very impressive given that this was on a SATA 2- 3 GB/s SATA port. I sincerely wish I could test this on a 6 GB/s port!

5 out of 5 eggsspeedy and attractive

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Stand-Alone Drive)

Pros: Super fast read/write on SATA III. Capacity for price is excellent on Win7 ultimate build. Kingston has some of the most physically attractive SSDs out there. The casing with the brushed aluminum and accent colors looks very nice.

Comes with a nice metal mounting bracket as well for use in a 5.25" bay.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Always had great experience with sandforce controllers on SSDs. This Kingston is no different. Overall a great SSD!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value and Great Performance

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Stand-Alone Drive)

Pros: Cheap, fast and looks pretty good in my case. Also came with a free copy of Watch Dogs. Game sucks, but SSD is great.
AS-SSD Bench reported that it is actually a little faster than my Intel 520 series. I was surprised.

Cons: Non, really. The free game sucks, but hey, it was free and the drive is awesome.
