  • Summary: Although this item is a little pricey, it's definitely worth the buy - for both computer novices and experienced users. While SSDs are still not considered main-stream, it is almost inevitable that they will be integrated into new computers (for obvious reasons) in the near future.

User Review

sam c., Newegg
28 March 2012
  • Summary: The drive itself is great, it comes with an external enclosure, a mounting bracket, and a fancy screwdriver (made in china, of course).
  • Pros: This SSD is great. Really fast, and the only problems I've had with it are more my motherboards fault. Even without SATA III this drive significantly increases the speed of pretty much everything. My boot time is roughly 20 seconds, and CS 5 opens in about 3.
  • Cons: Kingston is a bunch of slimy con artists when it comes to rebates. I mailed it in exactly per their instructions 10 days before the deadline and they denied it because "the rebate had expired". After reading that many many many others had this problem I'm starting to think about 1/10 people actua...

  • Summary: I purchased this product to use as the primary disk on my recently purchased Lenovo W520 to get a more balanced performance. Boot time has experienced significant improvement. Take around 25 seconds to boot on AC power and no more than 30 seconds on battery.

Worked great for almost two years

  • Summary: I purchased this SSD at the end of 2011 and it has been installed as the boot drive in my system ever since. I've noticed significantly faster boot time when compared to the traditional SATA3 hard drive. When Windows8 came along, the boot time decreased even more.

Incomplete Kit

  • Summary: I bought this kit thinking that it includes everything you need to hook up to a desktop PC. The description and photos shows a complete kits with everything you need. When I received my kit, I noticed that there was only two cables. Only a USB and SATA data cable was included.

  • Summary: This little drive performs very well on the windows performance test in windows 7. (windows experience index) I bought 2 of them to do a raid array but it would not work with my motherboard. (intel dx79si) So now I have 2 drives. I would have bought 1 larger drive if I had known.

Hyper-X incredible drive - Perfoms above expectation

taloncc, Amazon
27 March 2012
  • Summary: I bought this drive to install in a Dell Precision Mobile Workstation M6400 (BIOS A12) that had a 128 GB Corsair in it for about a year. I kept running out of space and I couldn't bear going back to a regular spindle drive. I also have a secondary data drive (spindle) as well.

  • Pros: Have an intel 160gb ssd drive and it fits nice and snug. Setup was like under a minute.
  • Cons: 1 less star because the included screwdriver is magnetic.

I'm very pleased with this drive

Ash, Amazon

  • Summary: This kit's quality is AMAZING! I'm running this drive in an Early 2011 15" MacBook Pro (8,2) with OS-X 10.7.3 (Lion). You want to make sure you leave trim disabled in the OS. All the reading out there says to leave it disabled as it causes problem.
