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: I got two of these SSDs in a Black Friday deal. One I had previously and based on my experience with the first one, I felt confident buying two more. Both of the Black Friday ones came with the firmware already updates so I was happy to see that. One of these SSDs, I put in my HTPC and that one is working great. The second one I put in my office PC. That one is not working so great. It was fine at first but every once in a while it would not boot on restart.
Summary: Recently I got the 64GB drive to see if it really did benefit the use in a desktop computer. In short, it did not and also failed to live up to my expectations. Speed is not the top priority for me but more than less reliability. I returned the drive for the three following reason. 1. S.M.A.R.T. - This drive supports S.M.A.R.T. which is helpful however there were two huge problems with it.
Summary: Got this after 7 days of waiting. As usual the packaging was quite nice. God job for that Flipkart! The product was not as fast as expected, it performs same as my seagate HDD. I configured it to AHCI mode but still it was not faster than my HDD. But in windows experience page it scores 6.9, the HDD was 5.9. But I dont notice any difference in realtime.
