The average price for this Kingston HyperX 120GB SSD is around 230-250$.  I was able to pick it up for about 130$ so lets find out what kind of performance we can expect from this drive.

Underneath everything you got a 2,5 adapter, screws, and a small manual along with the drive. When it comes to the drive it looks awesome; light blue and brushed aluminum goes together very well along with the HyperX logo and Kingston logo in the bottom right corner.
