Richard, Kettering IT Professional

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very Fast, a good SSD, unlike some cheaper SSDs do not seem to have the occasional lag or latency. I have hooked up to a 6gbps controller and in windows 7 I am reporting performance index of 7.6 out of 7.9
Very good drive, when prices come down I will be upgrading my other storage to larger capacity HyperX
Bad points:
I havent experienced any yet

Baz , Windsor IT Professional

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Great quality casing and extra bits in the box itself such as a multibit screwdriver / external enclosure. The hard drive was fitted in to my laptop, the existing caddy fitted fine and the boot up speed is great! Using a 5200 rpm hard drive it used to take approx. 2 mins with this it takes between 20-30 seconds.
Bad points:
Hard drive capacity isn't great, but I use this as the primary drive for the OS then an extenal older mechanical drive for storing photos / videos etc.
