Cons: None - although I would've preferred the plate to match the SSD color ( but I'm only being picky )

Pros: Excellent price ( at time of purchase )It's SSD - what more can be saidComes with 5 and a quarter inch mounting plate & hardware
Performs the way you'd expect - someone going from HDD to SSD - ensure you wire your hat with haywire because the speeds will blow your hat away! =)In my case, I replaced my aging OCZ agility III with this one, and the extra 100mb bandwidth I gained is noticeable, saving about a second or two on windows 7 pro load time.

Review Date: 12/16/14
Cons: None

Pros: - Extremely fast- 3.5" bracket- Looks very nice
I use a lot of Kingston memory, never fail me. This is the 1st time I use Kingston SSD. It does not fail me too. Very very fast. It also comes with a 3.5" bracket. Good for use in desktop.And I have to say, the drive looks very very nice. Brush metal finish with a blue color bracket. Trust me, it looks a lot better when you see the real one than the picture. Almost like an art.

Review Date: 10/22/14
Cons: Cost (but you can price match, or catch a sale).

Pros: Fast
Super Fast (insanely so)Works well with Rapid start!Great Boot drive!Installed program work rapidly.The only drawback is the price if you don't catch it on sale.

Review Date: 09/28/14
Cons: None so far

Pros: Excellent Memory
I would buy it again

Review Date: 09/24/14
Cons: Can't think of a single thing yet

Pros: Reliable, Ultra-Fast. Fit perfectly in to the DS Silent Cube case 2.5" bay. Not a single glitch or problem with Win8.1 install or operation.
This SSD was recommended to me over the lower end Kingston SSD's. It is extremely fast. I installed it as part of a machine with the Gigabyte B85M-D3H, and a Pentium G3258. Boots in under 8 seconds (haven't timed it). Installed Win8.1 in under 15 minutes. Love it! Time will tell.

Cons: none for the moment

Pros: Free game was include
Just read reviews under mine. They are all expose my thoughts.

Review Date: 07/23/14
Cons: Nothing for me

Pros: Game Free.Super reliable product
Game come with.With Kingston you never have surprise except performance.My Laptop is now like a super car Thanks SSD.

Review Date: 07/07/14
Cons: can't think of anything right now.

Pros: fast boot time, included mounting hardware.
Good bang for buck!I got a Watch Dog voucher for a free game included with my purchase of this SSD. SSD + Free Game = steal!!!I upgraded from a 120GB SSD because it was running out of space. 240GB is well more than enough to store the OS, applications and games. If you are thinking of upgrading your primary hard drive, and you see this on sale, don't hesitate just buy it!

Review Date: 06/25/14
Cons: not as good of a deal as m550, which is $30 dollars cheaper if you do not like/care about watch dogs voucher

Pros: Fast, good built quality
Pretty good deal overall, bought at $155+tax, came with watch dogs. At normal price, you are essentially buying the ssd + watch dogs separately.

Review Date: 06/09/14
Cons: None really

Pros: Stupid fastLow energy consumptionBeautiful design
This thing gave new life to my laptop. It runs super fast and even helped extend my battery life a little since it uses way less energy than a standard HDD.Plus the Free Watch Dogs voucher was a plus.Thanks kingston!

Review Date: 06/05/14

Review Date: 03/11/13
Cons: None that I can think of so far.

Pros: Really fast drive. Boots windows 8 in a few seconds. Really good construction, feels like a quality product.
I think I got faster than advertised write speeds.

Review Date: 03/08/13
Cons: None

Pros: Reliable, Fast, Sleek Design, Great Extra's (External HD Case)
I purchased this SSD after reviewing a few other models, I also own a Samsung Pro 840 SSD and find the performance very close with the Samsung coming out on top slightly. PC boot up time is almost instant and runs amazing with no timeout errors or anything. Games install and launch instantly as well. Fully compatible with both PC's and Macs as I currently have one drive in a 2010 MacBook Pro 15 inch and the other is in a PC (tower).

Cons: None so far

Pros: Fantastic speed, nice and cool
Installed two of these into our high end production machine and haven't had any issues. They're running on the latest Intel 2011 chipset in SATA3We have been running an entire studio on this machine using these drives for the OS and production software, which includes: We use Adobe Premiere, After Effects, Adobe Audition (sometimes), Pro Tools, Poser, Milkshape, and many other production programs.It's a heavy production machine. We use the computer for rendering long 1080P Blu-Ray quality video in 2D and 3D, editing in fully rendered 1080p on three screens. The system has never crashed. On weekends we've tested this machine with the top games since it has an ASUS NVIDIA 590 video card.When this machine isn't editing video, it's serving as the core audio recording / editing / live video feed for our podcast. If these drives will run our main production machine under heavy load for days at a time, they'll survive your heaviest gaming binges and home rendering solutions.Here's the computer these drives are installed in.Intel Core i7 3960X Extreme Edition 6 CoreCooled with Corsair H100ASUS P9X79 Deluxe ATX LGA2011 MotherboardCorsair CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9 Vengeance 16GB 4X4GB (Running 2 of these kits for 32GB 8x4GB)ASUS 590 NVIDIA 2GB Graphics card (For incredible CUDA performance boost with Adobe software)2 x Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB 2.5IN SATA3 SandForce SF-2281 SSD Drives (1 for OS, 1 for Production Software).2x 2TB WD Caviar Black HDD on SATA3 (Striped for scratch disc)2x 2TB WD Caviar Black HDD on SATA 2 (for longer term storage)Adaptec SATA3 PCI-E 4 Port card for hot swap drive bays.ASUS BW-12B1ST Blu-Ray WriterAntec High Current Pro 1200WCoolermaster Cosmos II XL-ATX Ultra Tower
