Decent quality budget SSD

Eric B., Newegg

  • Summary: -Even though the write speed seems slower now, it's still much faster than a traditional magnetic spinning hard drive. Plus, the read speed matters much more to me.
  • Pros: -Has been booting my primary PC every day for over a year with no issues -Boots incredibly fast, read speed is over 500mb/s as measured by CrystalDiskMark more than a year later.
  • Cons: -Write speed seems to have fallen somewhat over the past year. I didn't measure it with CrystalDiskMark when I first installed it, so this is a purely anecdotal observation.

  • Summary: Glad it came with a 3 year warranty. RMA was very easy, very fast. I'm in L.A. so my turn over time was 4 days!! Kingston very easy to deal with.
  • Pros: Fast, great drive for windows and maybe larger game (bf4).
  • Cons: died after 2 year 11 months. It was a slow death with driver stating not to loading ... other weird thing also started to happening...Bios motherboard flash was the killer...

Its fast like most other SSDs

Pedrules, Amazon
5 October 2014
  • Summary: It works. Its fast like most other SSDs. Gave it 4 instead of five because the plastic spacer does not fit in all situations. My application was a Dell Inspiron HDD replacement. Could only get two screws in, and it rattles a little, but it could be just Dell's custom laptop chassis fault. Anyway, the user is very pleased with the improvement.

Failed after a year

Cody A., Newegg
22 September 2014
  • Summary: Even though this drive did fail I still have to give it 4 stars. I took one off for it failing... but still giving 4 just because of the customer support. I called them this morning, instantly got a human, asked some simple basic questions. Told him the drive was no longer recognized in the bios . At that point he said looks like its dead. Send it in, we will overnight you a brand new one. I have never had such a good experience when dealing with customer support...
  • Pros: Very solid good looking drive. Speed of the drive was exactly what I expected. Not much faster than regular hard drives under normal use, but any compressed data or downloads... Start up times were nice
  • Cons: Very unreliable drive. I do not use my computer as much as I used to. Working and going to college really put a damper on my gaming. Come home last night to a failed SSD... Drive was 1 year, 5 months old (most of that time the pc was off)

  • Cons: Already noticing a slight decrease in speed.

Rock Steady

Charles E., Newegg
31 August 2014
  • Summary: I will hopefully get a second one to set a RAID 0 and see how that runs.
  • Pros: I've had this drive for almost 2 years now and it has been nothing but rock steady. It has had 3 fresh installs of windows (I don't upgrade) and still just seems to perform the same. I never fill it up, so it has plenty of room to TRIM and optimize with Windows.
  • Cons: The only thing is that it isn't quite as fast as some of the others.
