26 October 2013
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: 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: 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: Bought 2 of these. Had 3 RMA's over the course of a year. Computer's (wifes & mine) both had constant BSD's. Replaced with Corsair SSD's and no more problems. Just using these in an external case now for backups, they seem to be fine in that capacity, just not as the primary boot drive.
Summary: Worked great for 2 years then suddenly quit working. Went to use my laptop, turned it on, and it could not find the hard drive to boot. I restarted and it found it and loaded. I thought my boot files for windows 10 were corrupt so I reinstalled windows 10, spent about 3 hours reinstalling windows...
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.
