Is this 256GB SSD for $279 a good one to get?

Ran across a Kingston 256GB SSD on Amazon and wondering if I should get it, or if anyone has had problems with it?

  1. Maybe you could supply a link or a part number.
  2. He did supply a link....

    It's not the fastest SSD out there but thats not a bad price.
  3. That is a great price. I am glad to see prices approaching $1 per gb.

    Kingston is a good company and should stand behind their product.

    As to performance, you will be pleased. Any ssd will do very well with short response times to small random i/o, a task well suited to the os.

    No big need to chase other ssd's that show better on synthetic benchmarks. In ral applications, you will be hard pressed to tell the difference.
  4. I would recommend the newer Kingston Digital SSDNow V+100 ssd. I've got one in my personal pc. I bought the 96GB version when it was on sale at newegg for $99.99.

    geofelt - I clicked on the link the OP posted. That 256Gb ssd cost $423.00. The price is nowhere near $1.00/GB

    When I did it, the amazon price was $299 less a $20 rebate.
    Now, it is gone and up to >$400. Too good to be true and sold out I suppose.
  6. Still is $299 plus $20 rebate. Make sure to select Amazon.com as the seller under "more Buying Options" on Right of Screen
  7. OK!

    Found it over on the right side of the screen for $299!
