Hmm...I think I just found the replacement for my 60 gig Agility 2 OS drive that is getting pretty full now. That price for the 120 gig is right in my price range.

Not bad at all, finally a large SSD (400GB+) is within my price range.
Would definitely make that my boot drive, saves me reinstalling Windows every few years..

I always seem to lose 5-10mb a day to "something" and I never find out where that data goes on my SSD, so 400+GB would help that scenario a lot.

Value SSD at "120GB for $169.99," I don't get it lol. Thats still more expensive than a 120GB Corsair and its much more than a 120GB OCZ after the rebate......... This "value" SSD doesn't sound it's a very good value to me.

I'm sorry, but $700 for a hard drive is in your price range? You have too much money and should give me some.

"While both HyperX drives use the same controller and offer similar performance, the HyperX 3K is rated for 3,000 MLC NAND P/E cycles where as the regular HyperX SSD is rated for 5,000 P/E cycles. What does this mean? The fewer program / erase (P/E) cycles your drive has, the lower its lifespan. This difference is inconsequential to most regular user workloads, so the extra savings are worth it."

Does that mean that the regular Kingston HyperX have 40% longer lifespan than the HyperX 3K?
