Kingston HyperX SH100S3/120G 120GB 2.5" SATA III Solid State Drive for $169.95
Kingston HyperX SH100S3/120G 120GB 2.5" SATA III Solid State Drive
for 169.95 with $10 off coupon and $50 rebate.

I can't link directly to the deal but it can be accessed about 2/3 of the way down the page at this link http://www.dealsofamerica.com/hot-deals.php

Is this a good SSD? Seems like a pretty good deal.

It's one of the fastest SSD on the market, hanging out with the Corsair Force GT and OCZ Vertex 3.

At that price, I'd get one as soon as possible, before they are all gone!

Too bad I didn't see this until now. Newegg has them up currently after MIR at $175, but yesterday it was after MIR at $165. Is it worth going with this one at the $175, or would it be better to go with the Corsair Force GT or Mushkin Enhanced Chronos Deluxe up at around $200? In combination with performance, I am also looking for good reliability, which I seemed to see was semi-questionable for the HyperX, but if it is actually highly reliable, then I may go for it then. At the end of the day, roughly $30 isn't too big a deal to me if it means a much more stable system, so I would love to hear your thoughts on this.

I'd say that the Kingston and Corsair are a tad less reliable than the Mushkin SSD.

Is the Mushkin just as fast or faster?

They are all on par when it comes to performance.

Newegg now has the Kingston (with upgrade kit) on sale after MIR at $159.99. As this is starting to spread even further away from the cost of the Mushkin SSD, would you say it's worth the extra $50 for the added reliability, or is the Kingston overall reliable enough that spending the extra money just isn't justified?

That's your call, how important is reliability for your needs?

I ended up just going for it. Reliability is important, but from looking around it seems that although it may not be as reliable as Mushkin, it still seemed pretty reliable. I just couldn't justify the extra $50, and it also saved me some more money by having Acronis's imaging software included with it which is incredibly important for my build (I quite possibly will need to revert back to prior images quite frequently due to how unstable the software I use is). Really I guess my question was more how much more reliable is the Mushkin SSD than the Kingston, but now it doesn't really matter anymore.
