Learn SSD before you buy one!

Rob, Amazon
25 February 2015
  • Summary: They say buying a SSD will speed up your pc? I bench marked mine and there is no difference in performance that I can see. After I bought it i learned not to fill it up more then half way. If you do, it will start to decline in performance. The less you write to you SSD the better of you are..

Great Drive, but Skip the Upgrade Kit

X_HOBBES, Amazon
27 February 2014
  • Summary: The drive itself is great. However, the upgrade kit is worthless. PROS: - Fast SSD drive CONS: - While software does indeed setup the OS on the new drive and copy all files over, Windows will still point to the old drive for the executables if you make it the slave drive (at least for me it did).

Excellent value, but has longevity issues

Amazon Customer, Amazon
11 January 2014
  • Summary: I bought this drive back in October of 2012 and it died about a month ago. However, Kingston's RMA process was simple and I had new drive about a week after I sent the old one in. Also, I got it for $59.99, which even now is a steal! Overall, it worked very well for about 14 months.

  • Summary: Major upgrade from my old HHD for speed, of course, and no issues with the new one after the lemon died on me. It goes on sale frequently so always wait for a sale!
  • Pros: Fast, looks nice, on sale frequently
  • Cons: First one died

Kingston HyperX Drive -- Wow

Eagle128, Amazon
11 October 2013
  • Summary: This drive is one of the best. It is very fast and very easy to install. Comes with screws and mounting bracket for 3.5" to 2.5". Highly recommended, and as usual hats off to Amazon and their fast and on time delivery. Item was very well packaged.

Good Product...NO SOFTWARE

Sean, Amazon

  • Summary: SSD drives smooth and quick, but does not comes with a cd rom to transfer data from an old HDD. I found it easier to wipe the drive and reinstall windows completely.

i like it, but .....

MM, Staples

  • Excerpt: let's skip the pro's 'coz this drive is a fast one. The only con I noticed with the ssd has a weak sata connector. Mine broke off, don't know if this a manufacturing defect, design flaw or just a weak material used. You might be disappointed if your using a sata cable with a locking clip.
  • Pros: Easy To Install, Fast, Highly Compatible, Quiet
  • Cons: Flimsy

Great... But don't upgrade to Windows 8

Kevin, Amazon

  • Summary: I found that this Kingston HyperX 3K 120 GB Upgrade Kit SATA III 2.5-Inch 6.0 Gb/s Solid State Drive SH103S3B/120G was a very fast SSD, for the avid gamer, and even the normal computer enthusiast.

Good hard drive, but the conversion software is a joke

Josh McGrath, Amazon
1 November 2012
  • Summary: The hard drive itself is a good hard drive, but the Acronis conversion software that came with it is a joke. I purposely paid an extra $20 for the ability to clone my current C: drive and then swap them out.
