            I use these drives to shoot raw with my bmcc 2.5k and they work great. Really nicely put together and a pretty decent price too.

                        I installed this as an upgrade to my Mac Pro and have been profoundly impressed by the amazing increase in the speed and performance this has given me. This is an excellent addition and a worthwile investment to enable me to keep my equipment in good condition and running as fast as possible. The time it saves it an added bonus.

                          Replaced hard drive in an old Core 2 Duo laptop/2gbs of ram. Startup time has decreased from 2-3 min. to 25 sec. Win7 OS. Shutdown time 8 sec. Laptop is used a lot on the go. The solid state drive will improve data protection unlike the spinning platters of the traditional factory hard drive. Easy to install.

                              Comments about Kingston 240 GB HyperX 3K 2.5" (6.35 cm) Solid State Drive:

                              There are a lot of options to choose from when looking for an SSD drive. If you are looking for a product that will provide you many years of quality, speed and reliability then look no further. I have used products from other "top" memory manufacturers but Kingston always outperforms them. Their V plus and HyperX SSD's are as reliable as their stick memory. You may pay a little more up front but the pay off of less headaches later justifies it. Don't take my word for it. Check out other reviews on the net. (Five Stars)
