Summary: Do not buy Kingston! I ran this drive for a couple of years and came across the Kingston "public information" about the firmware issues: http://www.kingston.com/us/support/technical/downloads?
Summary: Solid little drive. I own several in differing capacities, and use them frequently when building small systems, or as a solid rugged extrnal drive when put in an enclosure. Never had a problem with them.
Summary: I bought some Kingston products believing they were high quality, I even paid more for them. Both my memory and this SSD drive have failed early. Replaced it with a 7 year old Hitachi Hard Drive. Hitachi took over the old IBM plant and have kept the quality coming.
Summary: I've gone through three of these drives. I purchased one for myself and another for a build I was doing. Both failed, and while Kingston sent replacements, even one of those began experiencing problems after a few months. I finally gave up and bought a Crucial and haven't had any issues.
Summary: The package came 2 DAYS EARLY!!! Product worked great and had no problems at all (or so far...). Very happy with that but laughed my a$$ off when I opened the box. The guy packaged it with ripped up printer paper and scotch tape! Kudos to you bro! BTW, this thing flies on USB 3.0
Summary: We bought half a dozen Kingston drives similar to these, and as they were put into use we found that every one failed after 4-6 months. Every single one. They were not used heavily and were placed in different machines, so the problem was clearly in the drives.
