According to userbenchmark though, the UV400 isnt just inferior to WD Blues and Samsung ones, but slower than everything else in the list. Sure it's the cheapest, but I dont consider it the best buy. Also, dont forget Kingston have the bad past on using more expensive parts in SSDs to create good looking reviews at first, then use slower and cheaper parts to produce the same models to trick customers.
The problem with crowdsourcing data to use for benchmarks like this is that not all SSDs are the same, while Samsung use predictable Samsung flash and Samsung controllers, drives like the UV400 change their bill of materials all the time, so what is true for one month's UV400s could possibly not be true for the next month's UV400s.
Userbench's SSD bench is pretty naff anyway compared to AnandTech's real world benches and others.
@JDE I'd say go for it, it's still going to be night and day compared to a HDD. But for a power user you're gonna tell the difference compared to a good SSD.
