Failed after 3.5 years of use

SURGI S., Newegg
16 April 2015
  • Pros: Worked great right up to the last time it booted.
  • Cons: If you want to get this SSD and don't expect a life expectancy greater than what I got out of it, then this SSD is for you. Warranty was for 3 years - go figure. Lost all data and this SSD is totally dead.

4 years Strong & Fast SSD -

James S., Newegg
2 March 2015
  • Summary: Read the directions or do your home work. The SSD goes inside of your PC - the old drive becomes an external drive if you do not have any more SATA ports or have a laptop. Set your BIOS to AHCI *** before you clone your drive for best performance.
  • Pros: Hands down adding a SSD for your OS drive is the best speed improvement for any PC with 8GB of RAM of more. You can see and feel the difference it is night & day major speed improvement. SSD speeds, stable, 4 years later still going strong! Came with cloning software & mounting tray, housing for ...

Not reliable

Ryan M., Newegg
4 March 2014
  • Summary: Just hope they dont take forever to get me my new hard drive
  • Pros: Was reliable and stable up till this point.
  • Cons: Had this for just over a year now, has worked fine up till this point. Woke up today and it was completely dead. Had to boot my windows off my slave drive..Called Kingston and they will ship me a new one with overnight delivery once they receive my old one...How long this will take i have no idea

Pricing Mistake...??

Michael B., Newegg
7 January 2014
  • Summary: This is a "solid" solid state drive and does what it's supposed to do. But, if the price I am seeing here is correct, that would be ridiculous. That's over $2 per GB. I hope it is just a misprint as I got mine for $99. Most SSD's are around 70 - 80 cents per gig now a days and continue to drop.
  • Pros: Average SSD. Keeps up with the rest.
  • Cons: PRICE!!! $349 for 120 GBs. That's got to be a misprint, right Newegg? I got mine for $99 6 months ago.

2 Years and Counting

Kevin M., Newegg
31 December 2013
  • Summary: You must use the Windows utility to partition and format this drive. I had to learn this the hard way. Do not use the software that comes with the drive if you are installing Windows 7 64-bit.
  • Pros: Excellent SSD. Excellent speed and reliability. I have had for over two years now and use the computer daily. Using AS SSD Benchmark utility, I was able to get a score of 167(R) and 207(W). Individual scores were: 467MB/s Seq Read, 160MB/s Seq Write, 0.123ms Read Acc. time, and .357ms Write Acc t...
  • Cons: None so far.

Buying another

Norma R., Newegg
8 January 2013
  • Summary: I am buying the standalone version of this one. I really love the speed of this SSD. I want to Raid-0 them together for bigger main drive space. One of these is just enough for windows, apps and only 1 MMO, like WoW or SWTOR.
  • Pros: Love the speed. Internet is much more snappier. Games run faster. Very fast read and write speeds. I am buying another one (read other thoughts)
  • Cons: Price? is that a con?

almost a year now, perfect

Martin T., Newegg
23 September 2012
  • Summary: I am surprised that the price is still this high. I think I paid around $200 after the rebate. It listed at $240 at the time, so this is a good price drop. But you get what you pay for.
  • Pros: Has worked flawlessly for almost a year now. I had one BSOD like the first day, my fault (during Windows 7 64-bit install), none since. I use my system daily for at least 3+ hours. This drive runs cools, everything opens instantly. I would not hesitate to purchase another Kingston
  • Cons: None, absolutely none
