  • Summary: Suddenly died after 6 months, complicated RMA, I request an invoice attached with the replaced product and they refused, a real money waste, don't buy this product if you plan to take it outside the US. Hope that the product died before 30 days, I would be abled to return directly to Amazon.

Kingston's a once known reliability is no longer there. Avoid at all cost.

Raj, Amazon

  • Summary: Drive failed abruptly within 10 months, sought help with Kingston. The support team tried their best. Unfortunately, the way their stupid engineering team designed the SSD, no recovery tools or other work on it and basically its a brick. They said these drives have a known issue and only solution is to replace the drive. They sent a replacement SSD which they claimed it to be free from defects and new firmware in place. The new drive is dead in 4 months.

Not very impressed so far-boat anchor

Jim..., Amazon
13 July 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this kit and got it two days ago. I have a brand new HP desktop (i7, decent machine). After installing the hard drive, I ran the Acronis software to migrate my boot drive to it. It didn't run. The program said my hard drive had errors and to run a check disk. A thorough check disk on a 1 TB drive takes about 2 hours, and works the hard drive pretty hard, but I did it anyway. Zero errors. Thanks Kensington, you made me stress a brand new hard disk for nothing.

Don't buty Staples Insurance on your PC

Dissatisified, Staples
6 June 2013
  • Excerpt: I would not know how this is really working as I have had great difficulty getting my comuter repaired through the Staples insurance I purchased. I never would have bought the insurance if I had known I would have to work through a third party who first insists I trouble shoot over the phone before they will send a repairman. But I am glad that their staff speaks English fluently.

Failed after 4 months

Computer Guy "OTC", Amazon
22 May 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this drive because of Kingston's reputation for quality. After four months in a lightly used laptop, this drive failed completely with no warning!! All data has been lost and recovery is way more expensive than with a conventional hard drive. PLUS, Kingston does not honor the warranty without the receipt. To that I am upset would be an understatement! I have used Crucial drives and Intel drives. I am not willing to risk using another Kingston drive.

Great SSD solution for main OS drive

LGxStarburst, Overclock
14 May 2013
  • Excerpt: The Kingston HyperX 3k 90gb solid state drive is a great drive to use for a dedicated operating system drive or for a dedicated gaming drive. i would suggest though that for a gaming drive a larger capacity would be needed as this one is pretty small in comparison to drives currently on the market.
