Admittedly its only SATA 2 but if your on a budget and don't have SATA 3 yet then I thought this was a good price.

Edit: The drive does not come with either of the kits mentioned in paragraph 3 of the description on the ebuyer page, I have removed the paragraph to avoid confusion.

The description is confusing for this. It does not come with the hdd enclosure or the mounting rails. It's talking about the desktop kit and the notebook kit.

Point taken, edited the OP. Cheers.

Good price. I'd still pay the extra few quid for an OCZ Vertex 2E, much faster write speeds than this...

Out of interest what would the faster write speeds achieve in real world usage?

Things would install and update quicker, your PC would shut-down quicker and most obviously, transfers and de archiving would also be quicker. Tempting price as a 2nd SSD this is but Kingston have so many SSD products that I can't be bothered to research if this is one of their good ones.

LOL. I know exactly what you mean and I'm a lazy sod as well. They really should make it clearer.
