Just be aware that you're not going to see anywhere near the advertised performance on these. Those specs came from when this model was using Toshiba Toggle-Mode flash memory and a Silicon Motion controller. They recently switched to -- much slower -- Micron asynchronous flash memory and the SandForce controller, but never bothered to update the specs. So, you'll be getting half to as low as a quarter of the advertised performance. This article here shows the significant performance differences.

I picked one up a month or so ago when I found a deal at this price, and can verify that performance is definitely no longer as advertised. It's still better than hard drive speeds, though. So, if you're looking for a cheap boost, and aren't too stressed about performance, this ain't bad. Just do be aware that "cheap" definitely doesn't just apply to the price tag here, and that Kingston is pulling some shenanigans with their advertising.
