    Kingston is a well known memory manufacturer, but I fear I cannot comment on the quality of their SSDs. Hopefully someone here will have some experience with them and will be able to comment.

    I wouldn't hesitate to buy one.

    You can get it right now on Amazon for $85.77 US in the USA. Not sure about where you are.

    Note that many of the reviews linked from #4 are for earlier models like the v200, also check the latest review there, it seems like the recent output from the mainland factory might not be as good as the Taiwan -built offerings.

    I use (amongst other SSDs) a 240GB HyperX V300, no qualms about buying it

    I have used Kinston Memory in the past with very good results. However have never used their SSD's. Kingston has always been know as one of the better manufacturers. Of course past performance does not always mean good performance now.

    Medico,
    Thank you very much for that it is almost the same thing Rui said. There has been a post by Jerry a few posts ago that was very positive.
    Thanks,
    Phil.

    And you know the first rule of tech purchases is that as soon as you purchase it and are sure you can't return it, you'll see it cheaper somewhere online.

    I just got a 240GB Kingston SSD on Black Friday weekend. Obviously I don't have long term experience with it, but the reviews on Amazon helped me pick that one. It is quite a performance booster for my early 2008 MacBook Pro. I think it'll be just fine if you get a Kingston.
