Summary: I've had this product for a couple of years now and am very satisfied with it. In fact, technology has gotten even better and less expensive so I'm probably going to replace it (again) with an updated, higher density SS drive. My old XT laptop boots so much more quickly, is quiet and just works well. The installation was quick and easy. Instructions were clear and correct. I can highly recommend.
Summary: I was running out of space on my raid 0 ssd configuration, so I wanted to add a third drive to the array. Although this particular product does not come with the software, I used acronis true image hd to make an image of my windows installation partition on my larger HDD, added my new SSD, uncoupled reformatted and initialized the new triple raid 0 SSD configuration, and copied the image back over. The speed increase is actually noticeable, too!
Summary: I have Sony VAIO Laptop with Intel Core 2 Duo P7450 2,13GHz processor and 4GB DDR2 RAM. This laptop is use for watching movie, working with documents, searching internet and all other things except playing new games. It was working fine but I noticed that boot time wasn't fast enough - around 2 min 45 seconds. First I upgrade memory to 8GB - see improvement but not so big. When I install this HDD there was WOW!!! Boot time is now around 35 - 45 seconds.
Summary: I have two of them in my PC, one for system and the other for scratch and files that i am working at the moment. and 3 conventional disks to backup the finished work. 2 month working hard every thay on my pc and no problem. They are fast and silent. I recomend it.
Summary: I am writing this review after using the Kingston HyperX 240GB SSD for at least 6 months. This product has changed my life. I am a very impatient person and use a computer all day in my job, so perhaps my results are more dramatic than yours will be :) I have been using personal computers since the 8088. I started out with a cassette player for a hard drive, then progressed to 10MB full height HDD and on from there.
Summary: I bought two of these drives and use them in Raid-0 with a 64k stripe on P67 6Gb/s ports. ATTO Benchmark gets over 1,000Mb/s read/write, and AS SSD benchmark gets 1,008Mb/s on the read, and 287Mb/s on the write.
Pros: Fast, synchronous MLC flash. Made by Kingston. Updated to the latest firmware from Kingston, NEVER had any BSOD.
Cons: Manufactures use non-real-world benchmarks (like ATTO Benchmark) to rate their SSD speeds. STOP IT! Sandforce SSDs use compression on the writes. Real world data always writes slower. Use AS SSD Benchmark for more realistic results.
