$36.99 including shipping is less than half the price of any other reputable dealer and way less than any Black Friday sale price I've seen. If so many people are giving thumbs down, is it simply to avoid the resale competition on ebay, or is there a reason?

Only problem is it's Kingston, and peeps are quite unhappy (and not without reason) regarding the changes they made to downgrade models after initial rollout.

I didn't know that. I bought this exact model number in December, 2012, and it's been a good drive. Maybe they made changes, but if this is the size someone needs (I'm putting a new one in an old laptop), I think it beats the other very low end options in the under $40 range.

States free economy shipping so there should be no shipping charges. This is the updated version with more erase cycles. I have a 240gb version from about 4 years ago and not a problem. This is a good OS drive for laptops and such. Good price for these. Limit 5. Thumbs up.

Oh and OP, do your math again for this post. One drive is $36.99, and so two would be $73.98. To take advantage of the 10% eBay bucks you have to spend over $50. So two drives ends up being $66.58. I think you may get more thumbs up if you edited your post.

Yeah, I had two in raid 0. 1GB/sec is awesome.

This is at least a 4 year old model...the first 120GB SSDs I bought. At the time, it was the cheaper HyperX with "only" 3K program-erase cycles compared to the regular HyperX which was 5K.

This was not one of the models affected by Kingston's bait-and-switch. It was discontinued quite a while ago, and then it seemed Kingston brought it back (or just cleared out old stock), and moved on to HyperX Fury model, which is I believe another step down.

This is one of the few SSDs that advertised program-erase cycles - don't see that mentioned at all usually.
