Good luck... wasted 4 days...

  • Summary: After 4 tries to clone the current hard drive (with two different cloning software programs) and a 2 hour call with tech support, I am taking it back. Kingston warranty process requires you send yours back and they will get one out to you whenever they feel like it. No commitment. Don't buy unless you have a lot of extra time. Why do we do this to ourselves?

Not something to depend on

  • Summary: My wife bought this drive from Amazon for Xmas last year. It failed after about 2 months, and re RMAed it to Kingston, and they replaced the drive. The second drive lasted for a little longer, and then it died, and I replaced it with another brand. I never bothered to RMA the kingston drive a second time. This SSD seems to have problems, and you will loose your data. I have used two other brands, and I have not run into similar issues.

Do not buy

  • Summary: Terrible. I've used SSDs from Intel, Samsung, and Corsair and this one is by far the worst. Less than a year and it is already failing. Within the SSD market this has to be one of the worst. Not worth the money.

Worked for a while then died over days

James Connolly, Amazon
7 July 2012
  • Summary: This drive was tried in a Macbook Pro 13" late 2009 model. When first installed, it worked fine. After a couple of weeks (at only half-full usage) it began to "slow down" and the beach ball from hell would appear for longer and longer periods of time. Completely wiping the drive and re-installing the OS and copying everything back did not solve the problem. Last night, the spinning pizza of death appeared and never left.

poor product

  • Summary: It worked great for a few months and then it died. I called the service department which promised to replace it. However, only 3 month warranty on the replaced unit unless proof of original purchase was supplied. Don't buy it. If you already have one, save your receipt or other proof of purchase.

Worked great for a few days - then died...

Gadgeteer, Amazon
27 March 2012
  • Summary: This SSD worked great for a few days. I put it in my MacBook partitioned it with BootCamp and had both Mountain Lion and Windows 7 running on it. Very fast on bootup for both systems. Left the MacBook on for a few days; came back to it, and the system was frozen. Had to power off. Long story short, tried the SSD in a USB enclosure - still dead. OSX and Windows both on different systems don't see the drive. It's dead!!!

Not at all what I was expecting.

KO, Amazon

  • Summary: I've been using Kingston flash memory for years, and this was the first time I used one of their SSDs. That's not to say I'm unaware of how to use SSDs: I've purchased and deployed quite a few of them in the past year, either as upgrades to my own computers or as part of repairing the computers of friends and coworkers. I like SSDs because they're immune to most of the vulnerabilities of traditional hard drives.

Buyer BEWARE

AllanA, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this in November 2012 and didn't install it in my laptop until May 2013. It worked really well although not as fast as I expected. Then last week after just 10 months use my laptop wouldn't start. I checked the BIOS and no SSD installed, just the DVD drive. I put a different 2.5 HD in and the laptop started. I have tried several data and partition recovery progs but the SSD is DEAD!.

Dålig

3dfx_Interactive, Prisjakt

  • Summary: Undvik denna. Kingston ljuger om sådana drömhastigheter så det är nästan skamligt. Det bästa jag får ut är ganska så exakt 200/200 mb/s /r/w. Notera att jag har testat på flera datorer både amd och intel med samma resultat. Det verkar inte finnas någon firmware heller. I dag har jag bytt till en a-data premier pro och vips så åkte hastigheterna till 450 mb/s direkt. Det positiva är väl att den verkar vara stabil och jag har inte haft några problem med den annars.
