Reviews and Problems with Kingston HyperX 3K Series (SH103S3)
Showing 1-10 of 11
17 April 2013
Summary: Tried and checked everything and still losing %60 of the advertised speed, I know those speeds are under certain conditions and it says upto XXXX GB/s. But to lose %60 of it!!! it does boot in a reasonable amount of time though.
Pros: Nice looking case?
Cons: no Kingston driver update, 60% lost in the advertised speed.
Summary: If you are looking for a performance upgrade to your current hard drive this may not be it. This SSD did not perform any better and was more unreliable than my current hard drive which is rated at 3 gbps. To be fair though I installed it on an Apricorn Velocity SoloX1 PCIe chassis in a PCIe 1 slot on a motherboard that may not be rated above 3 gbps as it was manufactured in 2008.
Summary: Failed within two weeks of use, Glitchy choppy and stuttering, replaced all parts and still persisted, replaced SSD and problem solved. Had to RMA it, and been fighting Kingston with the RMA process, had the package refused delivery and then silence on fixing it.
Summary: This drive performed great while it worked. Today, it failed. A scan of the disk reported multiple bad blocks. Getting it replaced from Amazon because it was less than 1 month. Hoping that the replacement drive lasts longer.
Summary: Pros: Mad fast. Installed my OS on this and it takes about 5 seconds to boot. The included bracket comes in handy even though my case had a SSD bay, the quality of the bracket was good enough to warrant sticking it in there in a 3.5" slot. Cons: Worked for a few days. I had the firmware and everything updated but it started to cause Windows errors. I got the BSOD reboot loop along with windows utilities dropping off.
Summary: This drive just stopped working on me gave me Disk I/O error booted to a different drive and watched in windows the drive connection drop and the system beeped indicating it was gone.. I had hopped for better from a SSD. Now I have to go through the RMA process for this dead SSD what a pain.
Summary: Beställde 2st av dessa för en raid config men det var fail då en av dessa inte fungerade alls men den andra fungerade. Men dessa sandforce e bara en ren lotto när man köper och får en bra. Köpte nämligen 3st Corsair Force3 för nått år sen som alla 3 var dåliga skicka in dessa och fick 3 nya. 2 av dom höll några månader sen den sista gav upp nyligen efter lite små krasher då och då. En ssd är nästan ett måste i applicationer som kräver massa laddtider.
Summary: Kjøpte 2 stk. tipper jeg har vært meget uheldig, da begge 2 røk etter et halvt år, ellers så fungerer dem knall og er raske og fine. for min del, ikke fornøyd med at jeg må sende dem inn hele tiden da dette skjer, ikke minst installere OS på nytt hver gang, selv om dette går meget raskt med disse, og takk og lov for det!
