Summary: Please don't purchase this product product is good.the main reason is that flipkart.com shows 3 year product warranty and kingston give only one year warranty,that things happened with me...buy OCZ or Corsair SSD.

Summary: With respect to the desktop performance reviews in internet, this may not the best in the market, but I am using it in my car computer due to the reason these SSD does not have any moving parts like regular HDD. Done a small test which matters for a carputer, I am using Windows 7 lite, Intel Atom 2500HN, 2GB DDR3 Ram and max time it takes is less than 18 second to come to life from hibernate. I got 11 seconds too with no application running.
Summary: Kingston might not get great reviews from Tech sites based out of US but our buying should not be based on their reviews. Buy products that have services in India. I bought this SSD primarily to speed up my Old LGA 775 system. This actually speeded up my system by 150% without changing my processor or Mobo which is breaktaking.
Summary: Firmware update --------------- After placing ordering, figure out that these series need urgent firmware update. And thankfully the disk shipped by Flipkart had latest firmware updates("D110225a") from the factory itself :) Performance(on MacBook5,1) ------------------------- Needless to say booting of MacOs and WinXp were superfast.
Summary: I installed this SSD in my Macbook (early 2008 model running Lion) in November and it is working just great. The machine is now very fast at opening and running programs and the battery seems to be lasting longer. So I am very satisfied with this device and would recommend it. You can be sure that if I have any problems I'll put comments here.
Summary: I have been using this for a few days already as the OS/boot drive. The performance difference between this and other HDDs is readily visible. Booting up win7 takes about 20sec. Load times have decreased significantly for all applications installed on the SSD. Hints: -Disconnect your HDD from the PC before installing windows on the SSD. Otherwise it will end up creating a small 100mb system partition on the HDD(Don't know why this occurs or how to avoid it).
Summary: I bought this from flipkart and the shipping was fast and super safe........ coming to the performance this is damn fast and windows starts up in a whiff even without displaying the welcome screen......... so fast....... the windows rating on my board was 6.8.........
Summary: 128GB capacity at this price is great... As far as the performance is concerned the drive is snappy when it comes to read speeds, the writes speed is not as high but still great. I replaced my OCZ Vertex 2 40GB with this drive for space reasons and I haven't noticed any change in responsiveness. Thumbs Up!!
