Causes Freeze

Kwang, Amazon
6 July 2015
  • Summary: After I installed this SSD to my laptop, it occasionally freezes for 40s - 2mins. When it freezes, the hard drive light keeps on, so I definitely know it is caused by a hard drive but I can tell which one because my laptop has 2 drives.

Kingston doesn't make a 1200 Gb Hyperx drive

Aarne Elias, Amazon
2 April 2015
  • Summary: Kingston doesn't make a 1200 Gb SSD drive in Hyperx. The largest is 480 Gb. Clearly a typo. You can get the 120 Gb on New Egg for $77!

Good, but cr*ppy quality

John C., Newegg

  • Summary: Not sure if design has changed on SSD but most have a set number of hours they will last. Maybe that's what killed my SSD. Even though it was used very little. Win 7 was running Hibernation/sleep putting pc in a stand by state. Leaving HD's to not power down 24/7.
