I think I won't trust an ssd again. It's expensive and life time too short. Who knows when your data is lost.

  • Summary: Everything was working fine on this ssd kingstone hyper x k5, until my pc freezes windows, I turn off the pc then I turn on and windows do not show up. I tried to isntall windows 8.1 again and the do not even recognize the ssd. I tried to install the ssd in another laptop and not recognized it. I figure out the ssd is death trying as an external hard drive to back up my data.

SSD Died After 18 Months

D. R. Dublin "Bydasea", Amazon
14 September 2013
  • Summary: The SSD died in just 18 months of normal usage. I'm hoping this would last for 3 or more years. Pros: * Nice upgrade kit complete with screwdriver, USB External Drive Bay, Acronis Migration Software and desktop mounting plate. * Amazingly fast transfer speed. Cons: * Expensive. * Not rugged as it claim to be. I've probably received a lemon but Kingston should provide superior quality control for their product at this cost.

Great product

  • Summary: I've had this product for a couple of years now and am very satisfied with it. In fact, technology has gotten even better and less expensive so I'm probably going to replace it (again) with an updated, higher density SS drive. My old XT laptop boots so much more quickly, is quiet and just works well. The installation was quick and easy. Instructions were clear and correct. I can highly recommend.

Failed within the first 2 hours of use!!

Raff-Raff, Amazon
29 December 2012
  • Summary: Chose the drive based on past positive experience with Kingston products. However in this case, I guess I just got lucky. I was able to install Windows on the drive and as I was configuring the OS, the drive crashed three times over the course of two hours: (a) computer froze twice; reboot required (b) Blue screen (BSOD) Then finally, reboot fails due to a (c) "No Bootable Device Error.

dead drive, Kingston would not replace

George N. Lawrence, Amazon
19 October 2012
  • Summary: Drive crashed intermittently from the beginning. System would not recognize the drive in a docking station, but recognized it when installed internally. Finally went stone dead. Kingston refused to accept my invoice and would not replace it, so I will never buy a Kingston SSD again. I recommend the Intel 520 drive. In my tests it is as fast as the Kingston and the Intel 520 has run flawlessly for 10 months.

Fast and loved it, UNTIL IT DIED after just a few months

Chris Oakes, Amazon
29 July 2012
  • Summary: Feb-July 29. I absolutely loved the drive at first. It had a very easy installation, was recognized instantly in my rig, and the performance was great. That was until it died. No warning at all, just Blue Screen one day, and it failed to even recognize system BIOS. I tried putting it in the enclosure as well, with no luck. Did not even last 6 months. And with the lack of warning, I didn't even have a chance to backup my data.
