Definitely not the fastest SSD on the market, but for what it is, it's fantastic. It's very inexpensive and provides performance SIGNIFICANTLY better than a mechanical hard drive. Kingston knows they're not top of the line, and they price their products accordingly; I respect them for that. I don't buy the highest end top of the line components because I don't buy parts so I can benchmark them and get excited about how fast they are. Real world performance is all I care about, and I'm not going to notice the difference of a few seconds between different SSDs. The difference between HDD and SDD though, phew! HUGE! I just want Windows to boot up fast (about 8 seconds after I hit the power button I'm in Windows), games to load quickly (Battlefield 1 maps load in about 10 seconds) and this drive is perfect for that. Also, my motherboard has SATA 2 and not 3, so there was no reason for me to get the fastest drive available. KEEP IN MIND FOR THE SCREENSHOT THAT I POSTED, THIS IS WITH A SATA 2 CONNECTION, NOT SATA 3. SATA 3 is (theoretically) twice as fast, so there would be a significant increase in performance with a SATA 3 board over this. Still extremely pleased with these results on a sata 2 connection with a $45 drive. Would buy again, and probably will.
