I see the Intel 730 (Skull Logo) in the background. Which one do you recommend better the Intel or the Kingston?

Wes Tech Games says:

Question : Do you purchase your hardware to review or is it provided to you for review ?
Nice SSD (more brands, should sell with a minimized packaging to bring down cost, the box goes in the bin), it’s on par with a hyperx 3K on reads, which is logic, but on the writes your SSD is better than my hyper X 240 and my hyper X savage 480… But SSD efficiency diminishes the more the SSD is filled up…, it would probably good to do tests at like 50% full and even 90% full to see extremes, with a windows clone and a couple of games! Some one puts and SSD in their system the first thing they do is install stuff on it… so a 0% usage test is pointless IMO it is not real world performance.

Hello, TekTick! Have you heard about GamingTribe, the social network for tech-savvy gamers and hardware enthusiasts? It has no advertisements, they don’t sell/give user data and they’re sponsored by AMD, Logitech, Seasonic and a few other companies.

Martin Angelo Garcia says:

SanDisk Plus, Adata SP550, Kinston SSDNow V300, ADATA SP900 or Kingston UV400? (for a cheap build)

I had in mind to buy this one in the future when i’ll be building new gaming pc, but then i saw 500GB Samsung 750 Evo is like 20$ more.
So should i go for 750 Evo? I would be using it as my only drive…
