For people comparing this to the $60 Black Friday deal, get over it. Those were black friday prices, which generally are the best prices of the year, and btw that deal sold out pretty quickly and weren't the most convenient shopping hours. If you expect prices to get below those before 2013, you're going to be disappointed. $80 shipped is a pretty slick deal. I
I got the package with the external case for $65 months before BF. $80 is pathetic.
Show me a better price on a similar ssd since bf. It's not a smoking deal, butwho knows how long you will have to wait for a better price.
the thing is SSD prices are still on their way down, there is no reason to believe that will change anytime soon. Yes at 65 or 60 it was a hot deal and it might be awhile before it hits that again, but it wasn't a 1 time thing and it doesn't make 80 all of a sudden slick.
Reliabilty-wise, tbh, I think most of the SSD companies finally figured out how to make reliable ones, just purchase from a source that has working RMA system and/or 3 year warranty. With modern SSDs (like the ones I listed above), if it lasts 3 years, it probably will last you 10+ years.
I recently has a Intel x-18 ssd drive die on me after two years and even though I bought it from a cheap ass third party supplier Intel warrenty service has been great. They even sent my replacement drive second day air!
Yes, my reputation is turned off. Yes, it is deliberate. The reasons are my own.
Competition amongst these companies nowadays presents greater innovation in SSD technology, so yes this one will be reliable if you keep up with the firmwares and also have a secondary hard drive to back it up. Speed wise, ask yourself - will I be utilizing this SSD for intensive applications? If not, then the speeds on the Kingston will be more than sufficient in handling general tasks. As others have said, many SSD today come with a 3 year warranty. Worst happens you get a new one if it fails.
