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.

Expensive, not worth the money, didn't last more than (3) years.

Cameron W Becker, Amazon
6 April 2015
  • Summary: So I bought this a little over (3) years ago. Installed it in my Desktop PC that I use for gaming. I had an SSD (128 GB) already installed and it was rapidly running out of memory with Windows 8.1 installed. So I paid around $500.00 for this one and installed it.

  • Summary: This was amazing for the few months that it worked. I was able to exchange it under the warranty, but I have not taken the time to install the replacement.

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.

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

Amazon Customer, 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.

Not so good

David B., Newegg
16 April 2012
  • Summary: So, purchased this late last year and I repeatedly get BSODs now (at least 1x/week). Also, data stored on this drive has become corrupted twice (and it is my billing info, so that costs me money when I cannot recover the data file).
  • Pros: Very fast
  • Cons: Constant crashes & data corruption

Good when it doesn't BSOD

Anonymous, Newegg
1 January 2012
  • Summary: Now that the holidays are over I'm going to try getting some help from Kingston tech support, but at this point I'd rather return this thing and get a Samsung, Intel or something else with a non-SandForce controller and be done with it.
  • Pros: Fast as advertised, easy installation, easy to transfer all files from another drive with included software and cable.
  • Cons: SandForce needs to go back to the drawing board with their controller. I haven't had this many BSOD's since I was using WindowsME, and I can't install the latest firmware update because Kingston's updater can't find my Kingston SSD (it finds the OCZ one just fine though). Tried different SATA por...

Sandforce BSOD

Y. Jiang, Amazon
18 December 2011
  • Summary: Got regular BSODs, about once 2-3 days. Returned and got a new one, same story. The worst thing is that after the BSOD, the SSD will enter some kind of weird state and will not be recognized by the SATA controller, until you manually turn the computer OFF and then do a cold boot.
