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.

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.

4 out of 4 failed in under six months

Tony Felice, Amazon
10 June 2012
  • 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.
