Summary: I have been running this particular SSD drive for about 6 months, and have yet to have an issue. This is being used in a media center PC as a quick boot drive, and thus only 70% of the drive is being utilized.
I don't have any issue but again, I'm a upgrade freak

Summary: when I get this, I even read the reviews or get help. I just go directly to kingston website without even plug it to check if works. I get the last firmware upgrade and then I plug the disk. works great, without any issue. I burn the firmware and everything still great. then I proceed to test the disk. I install it in a Sony Vaio YV15 with 8 gb ram. I get the windows 7 ultimate on pen drive and start with a chronograph.
Summary: Bought this drive to try and extend the life of and improve the performance of my Dell Lattitude Laptop. The Cloning software worked well and expanded the data space to accommodate the new storage space. Drive is quiet and the fan on the laptop runs less. Booting, starting outlook, starting Office Applications and shutdown are all much faster due to reduction in response time of the drive.
Summary: I'm currently using this in my linux box. What can I say? It was relatively inexpensive per GB, but the performance -- particularly during disk-intensive builds -- is just fabulous. And you notice it everywhere! Recursive find greps are nearly instant, even when you actually have to boot up a non-terminal application things are nice and zippy. I'm never going with a drive slower than an SSD now. So, that may be the only downside; once you go SSD, you never go back.

Summary: I got this as a replacement for a much larger drive that had windows installed on it, but as windows always does, it was slowing down to the point where it was unusable. I went ahead and did a fresh install of windows on this drive, and left all my information on the other drive so I could use that as my main storage (since I have a few hundred gigs of music/pictures/videos that wouldn't fit on this drive). It worked out pretty well.
Summary: Purchased this for a little over $220 almost a year ago, and it has performed flawlessly. My PC is on at least 12 hours a day, if not 24/7 (or a sleep...hardly ever off). My Corsair 1000watt power supply feeds it cleanly, which I will contribute to its excellent operation. Never the less, this SSD is a champ and is the perfect size for an OS and a ton of serious programs to boot. Save your spindle drives for your storage and your rock'in it out.
