    That Kingston is not in the production any more Kingston Technology SSDNow V300 120GB - Easy Buy World is newer version, I have one of those for a year and half now and it's not the fastest one out there but pretty solid. Just watch for one thing, on it's packaging, there's a firmware version marked, ones with xxx505 and xxx507 are alright, skip if it's xxx506 there was a problem reported with it and FW can be changed in the factory only. If I was buying a new one now, I would pay a bit more for Samsung 840 Evo, if nothing, it's faster and newer.

    Since I don't own Kingston SSD, I would take Mike's advice to go with 840 EVO.
