    Compared to any spinning drive, it is still extremely fast.

    If you have an option, choose synchronous. That will perform like most of the reviews.

    Kingston SV300S37A/120G : Does the "S" stand for synchronous ? :|

    What will be the other options as Kingston has messed itself quietly ?
    Should I get a Transcend or ADATA or any other budget SSD ? my budget is $66.

    This thread needs to be updated to clarify 2.5" vs pci-e vs mSATA vs m.2

    Too much confusion in the pros and consider all the different form factors.

    Speed: This is the absolute advantages of SSDs in comparison to HDD. A computer that uses SSD takes only a few seconds to tens of seconds boot while if using HDD will take time for 1 minute or longer range, speed is also true of the tasks on the computer, use the map graphics or gaming.
    For the HDD, you can select a higher speed with the type of HDD (7200 rpm / min).
