Replace original that failed; works perfectly

Summary: I'm not a computer expert. All I can tell you is that the original 1.8inch solid state drive that came in my laptop failed. A computer tech helped me find this size (not too common) so I took his advice and order it. He stuck it in for me (took him 5 min) and it's worked perfectly every since.
Summary: I bought this item for my HP envy laptop to replace my original hard drive. This SSD hard drive worked perfectly for the first month after installation, but it is now taking a long time to start, and shut down. Programs respond very slowly and take forever to load.
Summary: I have used this model drive for several older laptops with IDE rotational drives. In laptops, with single core Pentium M processor, ran WIN 7 100% faster than 7200 rpm rotational drive. Works well with chipsets that support TRIM or not.
Summary: All said, this was my first SSD purchase and I'm immensely pleased...enough so that I almost immediately invested in another SSD for my desktop machine. The specifics: Negative: the '64GB' model I ordered equaled 59.63 GB once installed...a 7.3% difference. I hate marketing departments.
Summary: your product is well packaged, with a short leaf of instruction, a bit surprised that it was made in Phillipines, but so far so good - well done keep it up. I will definitely recommend you to my friends.
Great for the price - no problem with Disk Image installation

Summary: After finding the 1.8" hard drive on my Thinkpad T410s was 35% - 60% slower than the various 2.5" SATA Hard Drives in my older Thinkpads, I bought the Kingston SSDNow V+180 128GB from Amazon because this Kingston model is well priced for published performance.
It's great! Amazing Fast Booting and Loading - (So far, so good....)

Summary: I purchased this (after trying an Intel Series 520 that wouldn't work - That's another story.) for my HP 2540p. I used EaseUS Disk Copy Home Edition (freeware) to clone the stock OEM 1.8" 5400 rpm HD to the Kingston SSD.
Summary: I put it into my old legendary IBM Thinkpad T42. To connect it I used mini SATA to IDE adapter. With dynamic FSB frequency switiching and Fan RPM Control software it makes my laptop noiseless and fast.
Summary: I upgraded my HP 2740P laptop from an Intel 160GB SSD. The Kingston 1.8" SSD was a snap to install using a USB 1.8" SATA drive enclosure (about $15) and Acronis True Image 2012 software (about $40).
Summary: I was looking to upgrade a customer's hard drive for their T420s. There aren't many 1.8 SSDs on the market and Lenovo's are all very expensive. After imaging the old hard drive on to this, it worked like a charm. and its Super Fast.
