    Excellent benchmark results. 4k read and access time on the read side are not the best, still ok, but the rest is all great. A very speedy drive.

    Doubting that.

    You can Google-Fu for hours upon end, and you'll find just about all forums where "those with experience" with them nearly unanimously hold the Crucial M4 head and shoulders one of the most reliable (along with Intel). I've never had to RMA a single one of those 2 brands. We have had to RMA a few Kingcraps, A-Datas, Transcends, Samsungs, ...I'll think of a few more brands in a bit. We deal with a LOT of SSDs now...in healthcare ultra portable laptops, as well as edge firewall appliances (which work them the hardest by pounding them with log file writes 24x7) Kingston is budget memory brand...so are their SSDs. If someone gave me a Kingston SSD for free...I'd spend a few hundge of my cash on a Crucial or Intel for use in my own rig before using a Kingston. I'd sell the Kingston for 25 bucks...or give it away...(of course after stating I'm not responsible for its warranty).

    A good review of the HyperX 3k. I do consider the Crucial M4s to be the best, at least for my use. The M4s tend to have faster read speeds where as the HyperX and the OCZ Vertex are faster for writes.

    I think it is because they are SATA II and not SATA III, I was looking into a hardware SATA III Raid PCI-E x16 card, Not sure if I will grab it or not
