Kingston and PNY caught bait-and-switching cheaper components after good reviews. Kingston dropped the ball; PNY used a slower, outdated Sandforce controller.

PNY swapped the controller to a slower, outdated Sandforce after initial production began, without changing the model number. Overall to the average user will notice less performance in Writes. Here are a few articles about it.... Note that these generally cover 240gb versions so a 120gb will not be as fast, but the overall view of "it is still an ok SSD" is true.

In for one. Small but my work laptop gets by with a 100 GB partition.

Not even slightly, but they're way cheaper. Some people don't need every bit of performance and for an old laptop or an extra drive in any existing tower, it's a great deal.

This is basically perfect if you're building a computer for your grandma, kid sibling, or salvaging an old laptop.

I have this exact SSD (the 240gb one), paid $90 for it last year and it's worked fine. I can't say it's the fastest SSD out there, but it does its job. I'm happy with it.
