Per Amazon review:
Amazon said: Kingston seems to have pulled a Samsung and entered this device into the infamous hardware lottery.

if you have version 5.05 of this device, then you are good to go and will achieve all rated speeds, power consumption, etc for it. This version of the device is manufactured in Taiwan.

As of version 5.06, it is a total crapshoot if you will get a good drive manufactured in Taiwan or one from their other manufacturing sites in China.

The mainland Chinese versions to put it nicely, don't even come close to the rated read/write speeds for this particular device, with write speeds falling from the advertised rate to a max of 240 mb/s on SATA III (device is officially rated at over 500 mb/s write speeds and the 5.05 version regularly achieves 540 mb/s).

The insidious thing is that those reviews are now a messy mix of both the old synchronous NAND and the new asynchronous products so that feedback is pretty much invalidated.

I would not buy one with your money!
