Summary: was rated for 555 and 510 was getting 299 and 210. Read and Write sequential. As of late kingston has been making things that slow down, same problem with the usb's i bought from them. i will update as soon in 6 month hopefully it increases.
Pros: cheap, small not bad overall in design.
Cons: was rated for 555 and 510 was getting 299 and 210.
Summary: Invoice: 06455896P After two weeks my first drive (C: drive, Windows 7) started posting 100 retry notifications per hour (no pattern to which blocks). Kingston RMA'd it quickly, but now after 4 months the replacement drive has started failing in the same way.
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: 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: 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: The drive has worked great for 3 months. Pretty solid speed. It's slowed a bit over time, but it is still fast. The sata connector is cheap and flimsy, it broke off very, very easily. I have a lose sata connector now so that's why I'm giving it 2 stars.
Summary: In Nov 2014 I installed this SSD as the Windows 8.1 boot drive in my PC (AMD FX 8320 Black Edition 8 core CPU, GIGABYTE - Socket AM3+ - GA-970A-DS3 (rev. 1.1) Mainboard, 32GB RAM, Corsair CX500 PSU, RADEON SAPPHIRE HD 7750 1GB GDDR5 GPU).
Summary: PC freeze 2 minutes, very low startup (4min to reach "welcome to windows") and about the same time to be able to use it. I'M a technician and I made a bunch of test but the problem still exist. The package as itself was ok.
Summary: Avec ma note de 2 étoiles, qui en réalité j'aurai préféré mettre 2 et demi mais sans pouvoir, je crois que le commentaire qui va suivre sera peut être le plus sévère...quoique. Pour commencer, les bons côtés de ce SSD: (Achat Stadalone) - Qualité des matériaux, de présentation et de finition.
