Kingston, though. Don't trust that the product you receive will match the product they describe it as being. They're a dodgy company.
They were very shady once, true... but they are the largest memory manufacturer in the world so they must be doing something right :P
This is the drive they were shady with.

wrong, v300, get it right :p

edit: first versions of v300 were fine, comparable with the rest of the market, then they decided to swap out the flash chips with Kellog's Frosties and hence the speed was greatly reduced.

No this is the business class KC400 they were shady with the V300 iirc

Good price and well worth a punt, yes they might have been deceptive scumbags and switched the innards on their V300 SSD drives but I imagine they'd have learnt their lesson :D

I have a few of these disks, they are actually very good.

See the review HERE! for more details, easily as good as a Samsung etc. :)

That's a good price; comparable to when SSDs weren't crazily expensive.

Heat added, OP. :)

"Once" implies that it isn't a continuing issue with the company's products.

And unless you have compelling evidence to the contrary then it's a valid implication and your assertions are hearsay at best.

I've had two of their 128gb SSDs quite a few years ago (looks same as picture), both died on me; first two hard drives I've ever had fail in my life! Although there's a good chance they have refined their parts I don't think I'd ever give them the benefit of doubt again!

Well then, the burden of proof lies with you. Enlighten us.

On December 14, 1996 John Tu and David Sun allocated $100 million for employee bonuses as a result of the acquisition, averaging $130,000 for each of the company's 550 workers.
Its nice work if you can get it ...

After what Kingston did with the V300's I'm probably never going to buy a Kingston SSD again, it also makes me doubt the quality of all of their other products.

Think about that for a moment. Even if it was just once in their history - they were caught downgrading SSD's and selling them to people who were under the belief that they were getting the same SSD that the reviewers had gotten when in fact they were getting a shoddy cheaper version that didn't perform as well, how can you trust that the company isn't doing it elsewhere but hasn't been found out yet?.

That one mistake has lost them someone who would otherwise have bought this product and I won't be the only one that feels the same about what they did.

Looking to get 8 ssds acting as raid 10 in a database server ( will have heavy use during office hours only) enterprise drives seem overly expensive and from test sites offer no extra reliability over consumer class. Had been looking at the 850 pro but are these a decent option too?

All about speed, pc operating boot up time will load so much quicker and any other program, game you put on it. For me as a pc gamer it's a necessity.

increased read/write speeds, decreased heat, noise, power consumption.

This. They also enjoy greater reliability as no moving parts so it cant mechanically fail in the same way a normal hdd can. On the negative though there is a limit to how many times data can be rewritten, which was an issue on early ssds, though i doubt it is something people would run into during the normal lifespan of a modern ssd...

Looks good although I'm still looking out for a good priced sub £100 1TB SSD for a iMAC 2011.
The Superdrive got screwed up when one of the kids put a sd card in and tried to fish it out. Want one to replace the superdrive and speed up my Mac.
#37
My 1TB HDD just did a number on me and died. Already have a 128GB Kingston in my PC that came free with my mobo. Zero problems so far (a year). So I would recommend anyone pick one up for that price.

They don't take the pennies until shipped right? Doesn't matter, just forgot.
