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: I used this to upgrade the performance of a 5-year old desktop PC. The kit supplied was excellent - including a USB3 external enclosure + cable. The drive was easy to fit in a spare 5.25" bay with the supplied adapter although I had to re-arrange the power cables to reach it position - but it was not a difficult problem. The supplied software did the job of transferring a ghosted image of my original boot drive to the new SSD quickly and easily.
