Summary: Please don't purchase this product product is good.the main reason is that flipkart.com shows 3 year product warranty and kingston give only one year warranty,that things happened with me...buy OCZ or Corsair SSD.
Decent performer in Desktop, but good performer in carputer

Summary: With respect to the desktop performance reviews in internet, this may not the best in the market, but I am using it in my car computer due to the reason these SSD does not have any moving parts like regular HDD. Done a small test which matters for a carputer, I am using Windows 7 lite, Intel Atom 2500HN, 2GB DDR3 Ram and max time it takes is less than 18 second to come to life from hibernate. I got 11 seconds too with no application running.
Summary: Installed this ssd primarily for OS and office applications. Other files was stored in a normal 1 TB hdd. The response time especially upon booting is significantly faster than normal hdd. This drive looks perfect for those who wants faster boot time while keeping other multimedia files in normal hdd. Should also be a good buy for those who wants to get into the ssd age without blowing your pocket.
Summary: Kingston might not get great reviews from Tech sites based out of US but our buying should not be based on their reviews. Buy products that have services in India. I bought this SSD primarily to speed up my Old LGA 775 system. This actually speeded up my system by 150% without changing my processor or Mobo which is breaktaking.
Summary: Firmware update --------------- After placing ordering, figure out that these series need urgent firmware update. And thankfully the disk shipped by Flipkart had latest firmware updates("D110225a") from the factory itself :) Performance(on MacBook5,1) ------------------------- Needless to say booting of MacOs and WinXp were superfast.
Summary: I installed this SSD in my Macbook (early 2008 model running Lion) in November and it is working just great. The machine is now very fast at opening and running programs and the battery seems to be lasting longer. So I am very satisfied with this device and would recommend it. You can be sure that if I have any problems I'll put comments here.
Summary: Needless to say, i'm looking to obtain a refund. Drive was relatively quick when it worked but nothing groundbreaking, then this morning my Mac refuses to boot. Install the old drive and all is well. Attempt disk utility repair - 'Drive beyond repair'. Rubbish.
Summary: Been around a month since I picked this up. This was not my first foray into SSDs so I knew what to expect and this does not disappoint. Needed a higher end model for my laptop though, my desktop has a 60gigs for the OS and programs and 7 HDDs for all the other stuff, my laptop does not have the luxury of all those other HDDs so I bought this expensive 256gb one instead. Not as zippy as my Intel SSD but no real complaints.
