Learn SSD before you buy one!
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..
Summary: I wanted to follow up on my last negative review as I did not expect to ever get them replaced so easily. 3 eggs do to the fact that it failed prematurely and I lost a large amount of data and work.
Pros: Kingston did a full RMA on all of my 6 SSDs that I had in Raid-0 with no problems or questions asked. They were very fast and helpful and understanding of the failure problem. Great warranty department.
Summary: I have a crucial C300 for 4 years now and its still working fine .. If you are going to warranty an Item for 3 Years they should make sure it would last ...
Pros: Great fast speeds.. Great easy RMA ..
Cons: Died after 2 years so much for s.m.a.r.t. technology feature there was no warnings about the ssd dieing .. I lost everything I had on it .. YOU MUST PAY FOR RETURN SHIPPING ON RMA ... I dont like that ..
Summary: This is still under warranty with Kingston so I am going to hopefully have another one in a few weeks after I do the RMA process. Not exactly thrilled with this prospect but I'll make do with a 5 year old backup platter drive for the time being.
Pros: Cheap, very fast. While it worked it was great.
Cons: Computer would not post this morning. Drive not showing up in the BIOS. Swapped this drive with another one that showed up immediately, also would not detect in a USB encolsure... I have an ADATA solid state drive that has been going strong for almost 2 years now in my gaming rig, I may stick wit...
Summary: With how cheap it was, I can't be too disappointed. However, always remember, you get what you pay for.
Pros: Price per Gigabyte and the gadgets that come with it.
Cons: Since day one, this drive was glitchy. It was fast, but Windows 7 and Windows 8 would freeze up or blue screen every so often, probably at least once per night. After nine months, it was no longer recognizable in any computer I tested with. Switched to an Intel SSD and haven't had a single issue....
Summary: Also this uses MLC...why would a value 120GB drive use MLC flash and not SLC. things are just less responsive i find. ... I did not know about that I just saw it for $70 and got it. I did have higher hopes for this SSD..
Pros: Good price. Got on sale with the Kit. decent capacity for OS and programs.
Cons: Not that fast. Coming from a Entry level older 64GB Sata 6Gb/s ssd i thought there would be a noticeable difference in read/write performance as the Specs are significantly better fro the Kingston HyperX 3K. Not the case. For one Windows 8 pro loads about 1 or 2 seconds slower than the Cheaper, s...
