Great price when on sale. Random reads & writes are faster than spinning disks. Sustained sequential reads are faster than spinning disk.
Sustained sequential writes are about the same as 7,200 rpm HDD speeds.
I run RAID 1 in all systems so can suffer a disk failure without much lost time so I went with these for a system which isn't mission critical. The price was right, being on sale, and they've been working well. It doesn't have a write-heavy workload so I can't speak to the write durability. They've been in use for almost a year now, with no failures and I don't believe performance has degraded. After a year's use as compute-oriented virtual machine volume storage, AMD's Raid Expert software reports 1% wear on one drive and 2% wear on the other.

Consistent performance. Bought around 15 of these. Some are almost a year old now and all working great. Great to revive older systems. SSDs are a must for Windows 10. It will not run well on mechanical hard drives.
Would not recommend on newer systems. Do not fill over 70%, it will start slowing down.
Can't beat the sale price at the time.

Inexpensive, easy to install, much faster than mechanical drives
I bought a few of these and they are as expected for the price. Even the material they are made of seems harder than regular plastic. Very happy. Someone complained about software to clone being hard to access. I use HDClone and it works excellent, cloned many larger mechanical drives onto these without a problem, Windows preserved, easy.

Software is completely useless and a waste of time. Should not have to search for software for the drives and then have to login into some other companies website and create an account to clone a hard drive.
Save yourself time and money and spend a few more dollars and buy anyone elses hard drives as everyone else has better software than Kingston does. I will never buy another Kingston product for personal use or for any of the clients who trust me to look after their computers. Memory Express should have a disclaimer on their website about how bad Kingston hard drives are and that their software is useless.

This is the third time this drive has quit working and needs to be replaced by the factory. It stopped working several times but I was able to reboot or unplug it and plug it in again and get it working fortunately so I was able to transfer all the data to another drive. Since I couldn't trust it I used it as a temporary drive but a couple of weeks operation was all it took before it quit permanently.
Don't trust it.
