Summary: After having a crappy old 512 GB HD, I upgraded to this SSD and was blown away by the difference. Good bye loading times! Windows boots to the desktop in under 15 seconds, games load stupidly fast (I didn't even know that Skyrims loading screen had "Tips" in the bottom corner until I saw a friend...
Summary: I bought this SSD to replace an Intel SSD 510 that I had previously bought for my MacBook Pro 13" 2011 that was freezing ("beach balling") randomly. After trying everything I could to solve the issue with the Intel drive I finally gave up after reading so many comments in forums that made me...
Summary: Product received as described and as shown on the picture. Very easy migration from traditional HDD to Kingston SSD - software included - just couple of minutes and new SSD was ready to instal in my laptop. I won't ever go back to traditional HDD!!!
Summary: If you're reviewing this product, you know what it's supposed to do... So I'll save you all of that and simply share my experience: I bought this SSD (96GB Version) for an old Gateway GT5034 that I've been reviving for about two years now.
Summary: Installed the drive last night, an hour after having it installed, while the laptop was just sitting there, I got a blue screen of death (windows 7 Ultimate). Woke up this morning, turned the laptop on, 15 minutes later, another BSOD.
Summary: There are plenty of reviews out there. Basically, I chose this drive because I'm using a macbook pro and this drive will do the "garbage collection" for the os. That's handy. Also, I don't care about random write / read speeds so much. I just want snappy performance.
Summary: As an IT professional, I try to spend little personal time doing IT support at home. Therefore, I purchased this kit based on the reviews of how easy it was to install and transfer the OS. Unfortunately, there appears to be no way to simply transfer over the OS partition to this new drive.
Summary: I am using this drive as primary for Apple MacBook Pro 15" 2010 model. After installed it, there were two times the laptop would freeze in Illustrator, Photoshop, etc; in which case I had to shut down laptop completely by pressing power.
Summary: Pros: - fast Cons: - still very expensive compared to hard drives I bought this drive to replace boot drive in my Linux box. Installation was simple (took out old drive, put the new into included 3.5" brackets, connect cables). Installed Ubuntu 11.04 onto it, and everything just worked.
Summary: This is the second Kingston SSD I've used to increase the reliability and speed of a couple year old laptop. Increasing memeory and adding this SSD will allow users to get more years of life out of thier computers.
