I chose this SSD because it was on Intel's published NUC compatibility list, and installed in an Intel Haswell NUC D34010WYK. It's fast and there are no compatibility issues. Price could be lower for the capacity, but at least it's made in Taiwan instead of China, and carries a 3-year warranty.

I used the inexpensive Syba mSATA adapter from Amazon (SY-ADA40050) to image the drive before installation in the NUC, and that worked fine. It's handy to have an mSATA adapter handy if you need to access one of these drives from a conventional PC.

The Kingston packaging is teeny-tiny, no bigger than the SSD itself, so careful, it can get lost in the packaging material.

I'm using this in an Intel NUC and it works great. Since the NUC is attached to the network storage, the only thing this drive stores for me is the OS. I only wish they offered a smaller size.

I tried to choose the mSATA between Kingston and Samsung.
Now, my choice for Kingston is the best.

This SSD works great with older PowerBook G4s and PowerPC Macs with a mSATA to IDE converter. While older versions of OS X does not have TRIM support, this SSD uses a Sandforce controller, which doesn't cause problems with sleep problems like other SSDS that feature the JMicron controller.

With the SSD installed, the PowerBook G4 Titanium boots very fast and applications launch in a few seconds, although speeds are limited to 66 mbps.

If you looking to breathe new life to your old laptop that only use IDE, I would definitely recommend this mSATA SSD with a use of a converter opposed to relying on the limited selection of IDE/PATA SSDs.

Works well with HP Envy 15t j100, r/w speed higher than 400MB/s.

Compared to a 7mm case enclosured one, I can install mSATA SSD along side with my HDD, giving me 120G of SSD and 1TB of HDD.

However, because HP Envy don't have ventilation for mSATA slot, This SSD heats to 65C under heavy load.
The designed temp is up to 70C. So I'm not too worried.Under normal load, it's 45C.

When I open the lid of my laptop and turn it on. It's 55C under heavy load.

So if your laptop has Ventilation, this SSD may suit you better.

I used two of these in a RAID 1 array (aka "Mirror") on a Gigabyte H61MA-D3V and achieved the highest WinSAT/Windows Experience Index score possible in my Windows 7 Ultimate rig (see photo). The RAID is configured in the BIOS and the two SSDs are on the motherboard's two SATA 3 ports. The rest of the hardware contributing to the Windows Experience Index numbers are 16GB of Crucial Ballistix RAM and the Intel i5-3570K processor.

This is my second purchase of Kingston SSDs. I have two others (60GB each) which I purchased a couple years ago, and they are still going strong in my media server (a re-purposed Dell Precision T3400). I have encountered others who have purchased SSDs who are astounded with the performance and sturdiness of these no-nonsense SSDs from Kingston. I use them in the StarTech 2.5 inch SATA to Mini SATA SSD Adapters (SAT2MSAT25), which are then used in Orico adapters, both of which make for sturdy, flexible, and attractive mounting options in spare 3.5" or 5.25" bays.

If you are wondering about page/swap files and defragging, here are my thoughts.

Regarding page/swap files, you should have one enabled so that slow or less important processes hogging up RAM can be swapped out to unused space on your hard drive - that's the general rule, and it is very effective. However, if you have TONS of RAM, then you can eliminate the page file altogether, though I would not do that for performance reasons. If you have less RAM, and you don't want to put a page file on your SSD, then you can put the page file on a regular hard drive - if you have a second one. This can be effective, especially if it is on a different controller, but I have never been a fan of having a page file which is not on the same physical disk as the OS.

Bought this SSD for my Intel NUC kit. Worked great. It's a little better value than some other brands. Not sure how it would react under high stress situations, as in incompressible data, but it works great for a typical office machine.
