When it works, it's great! But the data connector...

Summary: I bought this drive as a boot drive for an Home Theater Personal Computer I was building. I have no quibbles about the quality or performance of the drive--it's great--but the SATA connector (the data cable, not the power cable) doesn't engage the spring catch on the cables I plug in. (I've tried three different SATA cables.) As a result, it seems that about every fifth time I turn on the HTPC, the cable has worked itself loose enough for the drive not to be recognized.
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 play it on Xbox, LOL THOSE LOAD TIMES). Awesome product, no slowdown or problems yet with over 1 year of heavy use.
Summary: I purchased this back in July of 2011 and it's been running great so far. I have 4 hard drives on current setup and I used this as my Mac OS. I ran HD Tune to check speeds for all my HDs and of course, this is the fastest. The only negative thing about this SSD is that sometimes when I boot up, it'll lag at the Mac OS window. Then it'll get stuck on a blue screen. Not sure if it's just my SSD, but I hate having to reset my computer like that.
Summary: This drive is a little faster than my mechanical hard drive, but the main reason I bought this was for its native garbage collection feature, which does for the drive what XP can't. If I had Windows 7 or 8, I probably would have bought a Crucial SSD, because Windows 7 and 8 have TRIM garbage collection built in.
Summary: I was a little worried when I let a friend talk me into ordering it for my MacBook Pro but it is great. It is not set up to load from a Mac install disc but not to hard to get it going if you have a Mac that is running. Only takes 14 sec. to start Snow Leopard. This is Great Product!
Summary: This is my sixth Kingston Solid State Drive (2 64GB, 3 96GB, and now a 128GB). All of the 96s and the 128 are V+100 models. I also have used one of the older IBM 40GB drives and a 160GB OCZ. I've found the IBM drives to be overpriced, and the OCZ was tossed in the trash after failing three times in its first week...
Summary: Pros: super fast, easy installation, good price, hasn't failed yet Cons: Umm... doesn't make my coffee in the morning? I bought this to replace the HDD in my Toshiba Portégé R835-P56x laptop. I'd installed a lot of hardware on desktop systems before, but never on a laptop. This was so easy! And the difference in performance was greater than any other upgrade I've ever done.
Summary: So I got this drive in hopes to salvage my sluggish macbook pro that was also running out of space. I got an amazing deal on the drive so I figured if the performance didn't improve I would get a new macbook pro and just swap out the reg hhd for this ssd and use the hhd as a backup drive. I'm glad to say I'm sticking with plan A! This drive totally revived my mbp! Boot times are ridiculously fast as well as program startups.
