Kingston HyperX 240GB Upgrade Kit SATA 3 2.5-Inches
7 July 2012
Summary: I've had this product for 7 months now and it crashed on me. It started out as a great product, its really fast compared to my stock Apple 160 hard drive but other than that Im just sorry it failed after being bought December 2011 and died July 2012 (R.I.P).
Summary: Amazing difference in speed compared to mechanical drive. Everything just seems snappy in Win7 64bit. I Had to turn off the sleep functions and power management to the drive or I kept getting BSOD on wakeup. Been stable ever since. Seems to be a known problem with Sandforce even though it came with latest Firmware.
Pros: Exceptionally fast, quiet, cool and efficient.
Cons: Sandforce issues still apparent even with latest Firmware.
Summary: The good: I got this SSD to be my boot drive and installed it in my cpu with no problems. Windows 7 went on without a hitch. It increased my windows experience index for hard drive, ram and processor and it seems very fast. The packaging was very good and the build quality seems very solid. With a newer main board capable of sata 6 it would be great. Customer service promptly answered my call with almost no hold time and they spoke good english!
Summary: Hard drive is very quick, however the cloning software is terrible does not work at all with Win 8. Kingston Support were fantastic however they were not able to help in the end I ruined my factory image hard drive by partitioning it to below 240GB in order for it to fix, this failed miserably. Very disappointed with the Cloning Software Acronis.
