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.
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
Summary: Yes, I checked for loose cables, I changed controllers, and then changed power cable. No responce, I then installed an older Seagate notebook drive, with all the same cabling, presto! Computer online. Just a not so trustworthy drive!
Pros: Quiet, very fast,and great boot time. Newegg delivers great and fast service, I enjoy buying from them. Also their 12 month no cost financing doesn't hurt your wallet either.
Cons: Drive worked great for exactly 8 months, then it had a stroke, totally brain dead. I tried to resusitate, but had absolutly no responce. I had no S.M.A.R.T drive warning, so the data since my last backup is history. Now I have to try to get this thing replaced, I hope they speak english as a firs...
Fast and loved it, UNTIL IT DIED after just a few months

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

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: after spending this kind of cash for a high performance drive, the last thing I want to put up with is stablity issues. Things seemed to go a little to easy when it came to getting it up and running, and for 2 weeks I was just loving it.
Summary: Boot up speed of laptop with windows 7 and 8GB of RAM is amazingly fast. Opening MS Office applications happens in less than 1 second, and running VMware software (main reason I bought this SSD) is very good.
