Overclokers Rock's

Well what can I say that not being said how ready, just a great SSD runs perfectly gets the higher score in windows 7, and boy is fast very very fast indeed, score 10 of 10.


Must have!!!!

I went from old sata drive to this bad boy. man its lightening fast I have held out with these thinking there not that much faster man I was wrong SSD is a must have upgrade I am going get another to go raid. thank you OC only issue I have is reading other review they getting bags of haribo with there orders :D



Simply a beautiful product. Comes with a very pretty blue metal HD bay adaptor and screws. Sped up my windows and game speeds a lot.

About to buy a new one when they're back in stock.



Had a few SSD's in the past and this is by far the best, current specs include Windows 8, Intel i5 and 16gb of ram, switch on to desktop in a few seconds and PC never lags. Anyone on the fence about SSD's trust me they are a must have for any upgrade or new build.


Incredible value

Not only do these look great but they perform amazingly.Beats the Samsung 840 with ease.great temps great speed and amazing value


bought two of these and im amazed

My first ssd experience and i could never go back. Have two of these in raid 0 and i couldn't go back to mechanical. the drives are running my OS, programs and games, the raid config is getting me a 850mb/s read with 800 write.



I purchased this on a This Week only offer and although I just needed a spare SSD I decided to test it out. Most SSD's Use the Sandforce controller so it was almost Just Plug and Play. I booted Windows 7 and Partitioned and formatted the Drive. I didn't give the Drive a Letter because I use a Multiboot System. For test I used Windows 8 Preview and booted from the CD. Installation took 15 minutes and I never had to install a single driver for my Motherboard. It could have been faster if I put it on a SATA III connector but I just plugged it into a SATA II cable and Motherboard connctor. All basic tests and reads and writes are square and perfect. Loading Applications as if they were in its memory, Oh! They are. Lol.
Overall a good starter SSD for someone new to SSD's and Solid too, a plus is that it comes with its own 2.5" to 3.5" adapter bay.



I've a few PC's around the house, all with SSD's and this is by far the fastest. Amazingly fast and far snappier than the corsair or crucial. No issues at all!

Smashing improvment!

As I struggled with my system speed lately due to kind of old desktop specs ( core 2 duo, 4gb ram) decided to improve my system speed.

I read few articles and reviews about ssd's and my choice dedicated to Kingston HyperX.

Believe me or not , but what kind of improvement I've noticed. Fresh Windows 7 installation took only 10 minutes, system loading from bios screen only 10 seconds!!!

Don't know about statics/benchmark because I don't bother. What I expect was small improvment - what I get? Huge difference!!!

Highly recommend for those who struggle with lack of money for new desktop and want to do smth with theirs old pc/laptops as cheap as their can.

My score would by 5 for ssd and 3+ for delivery time due to moving overclockers warhause.
