Great Value and Great Performance

 

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

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

I have always had great luck with Kingston products. I have been using their RAM since I started building computers. The headaches resulting from SSDs dropping like flies, however, has steered me towards other companies.

Works well when it works

Dies inexplicably. I am on my third HyperX 3K in two years, having returned the other two for a new one as they died. Now this third one is dead and I just want it to be over. Meanwhile friends who bought SSDs at the same time I got my 3K are still...

Low storage

No game ?

 

I could have bought the Samsung SSD but the free game swung my vote. Now I find I have no game.

Good price on a good drive

No mention of the Free Watchdogs game anywhere

Kingston SH103S3/240G

 

The drive is packaged well and comes with all the necessary screws. I was so pleasantly surprised with this drive that I bought a pair of 120 gig versions at a later date for other machines.

Very fast drive. Upgraded from an older SSD and immediately noticed a difference

Could only afford one

Very Dissapointed

 

I do really think this SSD, but I feel that I have recieved an incomplete order. This experience has made me an unsatisfied customer...

Very fast SSD, in contrast to this review this SSD is actually really good. It works really well so far and it boots windows 8 in roughly 10 seconds. I really like this SSD

HOWEVER. I am extremely disappointed that I did not receive my copy of Watch Dogs. I got this SSD mainly for the fact that when I bought it, it promised a copy of this game. I did not receive it when it came in the mail, even when I contacted newegg...

Worst SSD Experience

 

Samsung is the only SSD that comes with both migration and optimization software, the other brands I have purchased at least had links on their website to migration software (usually Acronis, but I recommend EaseUS. It is free and works better) and...

It is an SSD, falls in the middle of SSDs for speed. Drive does come with a tray for mounting in a 3.5" slot. Good for rejuvenating older systems that support AHCI. Will work in standard SATA IDE mode, but you do lose some performance

No software, nor any links on the website for migration software or SSD optimization software. Uninterested tech support, called to ask about where to find optimization software and was told I had to by the drive Kit. Huh!! I have purchased about 30...

Average Gamer

 

I used this as the OS disk for my new build. I decided to upgrade to SSD and this drive was both highly reviewed and came with a recommendation from someone I trust as just about the fastest SSD on the market, especially for the money since I got it...

Price ($135 with coupon when I bought it). Speed (boots windows 8.1 in less than 10sec on average and I can open Firefox or IE instantly). Reliability ( really good reviews for longevity on newegg)

When I came to write this review I found it now comes bundled with Watchdogs. None so far. If I do I guess I'll be angry enough to update this review
