Great timing! I just bought this two days ago and received the drive today. I called Amazon and got refunded immediately for the difference between what was charged and the sale price today. Great service from Amazon.
Sweet! I also ordered one two/three days ago from a different merchant on Amazon. Went on Amazon and chatted with the rep and received a return label for fund refund. placing a new order for the lower price.
Got one of these during black friday week for 59.99. I have no complaints from it so far. I like that it came with the 3.5 adapter where as my previous kingston drive did not.

This is a good deal. Not as good as $59.99 deal BF from Newegg. But that was sold out in minutes and not many people can get that.
The drive is very similar and comparable to Intel 330 SSD and also has 3-year warranty. I've been using a bunch of Intel 330s and HyperX 3Ks and could not tell any performance differences. Reliability wise, only time can tell. But NAND used in both drives also have the same characteristics and comparable. In theory, these drive designed to last 8-9 years for 10TB writting per day. Average users are no where near this usage. For average usage, it could last longer or it might not last that long as all electronics can fail any time.
One thing to note is that this drive is 9.5mm high(same for intel 330). If you plan to use with your notebook, check the specs, some notebook require low profile that is 7mm high, and this won't fit. But most standard notebooks use standard 9.5mm thick drive.
