Do not buy this or any Kingston SSD. Period.

L. B. Glass, Amazon
17 April 2013
  • 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. The first time, we thought it was a fluke. But when we saw the repeated failures, we searched the Web and discovered that many people had reported similar problems.

Some SSDs are less equal than others.

P. Evans, Amazon
27 June 2012
  • 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. File system corruption, device disappearing on power cycling, Uncorrectable errors. (How do you get bad blocks on an SSD after only 500 hours.

Massive data corruption, then VERY slow

Terry Hardie, Amazon
22 February 2012
  • Summary: Bought this from Costco. After using it for around 6 months with the update firmware from the beginning, and running under Windows 7 with TRIM, I booted up one day, and got an "Inaccessible boot device". After running the windows recovery to get my machine booted, lots of things were broken. I eventually did a Secure erase and re-install.

Total data loss, avoid this and other Kingston SSDs at all costs

A. Oliver, Amazon
28 December 2011
  • Summary: This drive worked great for 10 months. It was fast and quiet, like an SSD should be. Then it failed completely. System couldn't boot. Placing it in a USB enclosure didn't help. The "firmware upgrade" from Kingston couldn't see it. All data on the drive was lost completely and irrevocably. If you have or buy one of these, expect to lose all of your data. I recommend migrating data off this drive ASAP, and returning it if you have one. Avoid Kingston SSDs like the plague.

Don't buy this. Discontinued product.

Dc2000, Amazon
30 November 2011
  • Summary: I bought this three months ago. After a month my computer crashed and it would not booth up. I had to reinstall everything and after a few months same thing, research the web and you see common issues like this with Kingston. The product is discontinued for good reason. They won't refund, or replace only repair. Not sure what that means. don't want to waste my time with another Kingston SSD. I bought it because it was cheap, and now I know why.

Toasted after 22 months!

The King, Amazon
24 March 2011
  • 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. Sending it back to Kingston and want my money back. I don't want it to be repaired because I am sure it will fail again when it's out of warranty.

Excellent performer

Sealight, Amazon
24 March 2011
  • Summary: This 64GB SSD installed without any problem, and has been working flawlessly for 6 months now. I did a clean install of win7 before using it for any work, and the laptop computer boots very quickly, runs runs much faster than previously. Since the install and results were such a pleasure, I bought a 128GB version for another laptop of the same model, a Dell M1210, and also upgraded to win7. Same problem free result.

Bad luck with Kingston memory

Vantage, Amazon
24 March 2011
  • 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. Server farms report Hitachi commercial products are the most reliable. Western Digital have bought them, so we will see what happens. I would like to see the reliability studies for SSDs.
