Bad luck with Kingston memory
21 August 2014
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: 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.
Summary: I thought SSD would last longer than the regular hard drive. I was wrong. This product is DEAD after 22 months in service. First I thought it was my hard drive cable and went through the trouble getting it replaced. Swapped the drive and the computer worked. So it wasn't the cable after all.
Summary: I don't write review much but this Kingston SSD is very bad. I bought 16 Kingston SSD for the last 2 years ranging from 64GB to 256GB for my work. The are running 24/7. 3 of them dead in a year period. It is worst than normal HD.
Summary: Our supplier switched the tested and proven bomb-proof APACER SSD for these... THINGS in nearly 70 boxes a couple of months ago. What a mistake that was. Already I have 3 back, I predict I will be getting them back at the rate of several a week.
Summary: My experience has been like others I've seen posted here. I installed four Kingston SSDNow V100 64GB drives in brand new servers that were used as Linux routers. In this application, the drives would be lightly used. All seemed to work normally for a while.
Summary: I have bought V100 disk less than a year ago. First month it was working great. Then it started getting weird disk errors. I was starting to lose files and getting files overwritten with random garbage.
