Experience: 2 Months
-Excellent boot up times
-Speeds are adequate
-Pricing when on sale is good
-Extra mounting bracket included
-Not much to say here
I bought this HD to place in a secondary machine. Boots up faster than my main PC which is using a M550 from Crucial. I'm very pleased with this purchase and would definitely buy one again. No reliability issues at all so far.

Experience: 15 Days

good price vs quality
haven't tested yet will update  later

Complete migration kit - good quality stuff - very fast drive
somewhat less than intuitive software
This is an amazing product with very fast drive, versatile migration software and tools, reusable enclosure of decent quality and the best screw driver now in my builder's tool box. Only Intel and Kingston make the transition to SSD understandable and convenient while other manufacturers are missing the point. I love the screw driver. It's one my favorite parts.

Mind blown! Fast, less than a dollar a gig.
wish this had a little more color and a LED to show access.
this think blows my agility 3 Out of the water. tests show it meets manufacture spec. Included cloning software was a breeze to use and lightning fast. Took less than ten min from package to bookable OS drive(70Gb).

Well built
included screwdriver could be better
I love this drive. It blows the M4 out of the water for speed from what I can see from my use. I boot windows in <10 seconds, and shutdown in <10 seconds. I would buy this drive again, and recommend it to all my friends.

Experience: 1 Months

Feels solid
Easy to install
This has been a great drive so far. Installed it with Windows 7 x64 clean install. The package does come with hard driving cloning software also, if you just want to clone your current drive (doesn't support raid arrays). Easy to install and comes with a screw driver and bits. had no problems with it what so ever. Suggested buy.

Also, have not had any BSOD's since I installed it (uptime going on 3 weeks), as I know other SSD have had that problem.

Experience: 2 Weeks
 Verified Owner
Does exactly what one would expect
The drive does exactly what one would expect. The bundle for an extra $10 is only worth it for the 2.5 External drive bay and/or if you want the blue SATA cable (the different color being handy if you have several drives)

Comment: Considering HyperX 3K 240GB has virtually the same performance as it’s more expensive sibling but comes to market with a lower price, it can be considered a success for Kingston.
Posted by: Babaghan @06/13/12
Comment: Overall, the Kingston HyperX 3K series SSDs offers everything you want and need from an SSD and more.
Posted by: Babaghan @05/04/12
