Summary: I left town to visit a friend and left my mail on hold starting the day I left. The USPS said it was delivered the day before I left, but I received NO MAIL at all until the day after I got back. So it looks like I will not be able to review this at all....
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.

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.
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: 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.
