Summary: Have an RMA going with Kingston but not sure I will use the replacement. May sell it to a frenemy.
Pros: Fast performer. What you would expect from an ssd.
Cons: Dead in 2 years. Would not buy another Kingston ssd. I will stick with Samsung or Intel. My intel drive is older and still going strong. I use it on my main computer that gets used everyday. The Kingston drive was rarely used. When it comes to data, don't compromise. Stick with the best.
Summary: This drive has lived for almost two years (bought 11/23/12 and died 11/21/14) and died being under warranty and nearly causing a fire inside my computer: the area around power connector essentially melted. I was lucky to be home when this happened. There was a lot of smoke.
Pros: reasonably fast
Cons: unreliable, often refusing to boot Win 7 ultimate 64 bit
Summary: I have always had great luck with Kingston products. I have been using their RAM since I started building computers. The headaches resulting from SSDs dropping like flies, however, has steered me towards other companies.
Pros: Works well when it works.
Cons: Dies inexplicably. I am on my third HyperX 3K in two years, having returned the other two for a new one as they died. Now this third one is dead and I just want it to be over. Meanwhile friends who bought SSDs at the same time I got my 3K are still happily using their original purchases (Samsung).
Cons: My first drive failed after eight months with some bad blocks, but was still bootable and data was retrievable. The RMA process to get that taken care of was a nightmare. The standard option will take week. The Advanced Repair option requires a hold on a credit card, which is standard practice, b...
Summary: As many other reviews, 200$+ for a little more than a year's worth is expensive.
Pros: Fast. Best price/capacity/performance ratio when i bought it on september 2012.
Cons: Slowly diying. I get random system freeze, it shows SSD utilization at 100% but nothing happen. It can last from 30 sec to 5 minutes. I used to think it was Rome II's fault but since i installed it on my WD HDD the game is running fine. Sometimes system does not boot. I know it will die, it just ...
Summary: I ultimately decided to stick with the somewhat broken hard drive i got because: I didn't finish building my computer until after the newegg's return/replacement period expired, and i don't feel like going through the trouble of the manufacturer's rma.
Pros: It works even though the SATA connector is broken. It runs fast. I boot up windows in less than 5 seconds.
Cons: The SATA port does not hold the cable in. Normally you would expect a nice click indicating that you need to press down on the release clip on the cable to take it out, but there is no click and the cable easily slides out if given the chance. I had to prop the sata cable so that the case was hol...
Summary: I love Kingston and their warranties. I will probably not buy any more of these drives. Two drives, three failures in one year is too much.
Pros: Fast drive, easy setup. Usually works great.
Cons: Purchased 1 for my system last year, and one in December for my wifes computer. I just received my 3rd warranty replacement today. First drive started corrupting data, second drive the plastic tab on the HD broke (how this could happen mounted in the case, I have no clue), third drive just stoppe...
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.
