Speeds not as advertised

It's nowhere near as quick as the speeds advertised (around 20% down on read speeds and, shockingly, down around 50% on write speeds. This does vary on size of the test run), but good value for money.
If you are thinking of buying this and already have an SSD, don't bother, get something better. However, like me, if you are running old HDD's, this is a must for value and capacity alone.

Very poor speeds

I was suckered in by the bargain offer price, but upon testing I'm only getting write speeds of around 22mb/s and read speeds of 370mb/s. My 2 year old Plextor is still getting 450 writes and 520 reads.

It's cheap, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. That isn't a typo, 22mb/s write speed.

Great Value for money and highly recomme

I bought one of these SSD's as they are one of the best value for money SSD's on the market per GB, Read/ Writes were as advertised and I actually found it performed 10MB Per Sec faster when I benched it. My machine is running a lot faster and it saved me by using an SSD as a solution.

Shocking performance for an SSD

This SSD appears to have incredible value for money, which is why I bought it, however the read and write speeds are NOTHING like advertised. I was getting 280 MB/s read and 180 MB/s write on mine (instead of 450/450) and after googling around discovered this article: http://www.extremetech.com/extreme/184253-ssd-shadiness-kingston-and-pny-caught-bait-and-switching-cheaper-components-after-good-reviews.

Basically don't trust reviews you see of this SSD on the internet as Kingston has changed it to far cheaper parts without telling anyone.

Overclockers were excellent with their returns policy however
