Summary: I've been using this drive for 2 years (only for the OS), and it's dead now. It froze out of nowhere, then I managed to format it and reinstall Windows on it (it wasn't even there in the drive list). 1 month later, it did it again.

Summary: Really Disappointed. I thought that Kingston will work better than other SSDs. I dont know what happened but the comp suddenly restarted and said no bootable hard drive found. I went to boot sector and the SSD was not even there.
Summary: WARNING THIS PRODUCT CAUGHT FIRE AND ALMOST TOOK MY COMPUTER WITH IT WORTHLESS TRASH. I CALLED AMAZON AND THEY TOLD ME TO CONTACT THE MAUFACTURE HAVING SAID THAT I HAVE CONTACTED KINGSTON AND THEY SEEM TO BE GIVING ME THE RUN AROUND WITH THE RMA PROCESS.
I thought Kingston brand meant Reliable products??

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.
Pros: Dead After less than a year limited use. This was part of a dual boot PC I built for my sister. Running win8 on this SSD Win7 on other HD.

Summary: I used this drive for storing documents, photos, ebooks, etc. In that respect it was write-one, read-many device, no heavy usage writing. Worked great for a few months, then died catastrophically, taking all my data with it.
Summary: I cannot recommend buying the HyperX 120, they have some flaw in them that makes the write speeds horrifically slow for an SSD. One, I could chalk up to a one-off. Two, a bad batch out of the factory. THREE?? And one being a replacement almost a year later? Nope, they are junk. Do not buy.
Pros: It is small.
Cons: I sent one back within less than a year. I should note I bought two around the same time, as well as the same exact model but a 240GB. Neither of the 120's was ever any good on speeds. They never went above 170 write speeds. A good 7200RPM spinning drive can hit 130. These speeds are completely u...
