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.
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.
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!!!
Summary: I am having couple major problems with it installed on my iMac (Late 2009) 1) Negotiated Link Speed shows 1.5 Gigabit, it should be 3Gb (SATA II Controller). OWC had same problem with their SSD, but it has a fix. I think I have lastest firmware (501ABBF0), so I didn't try to upgrade it. The speed is only 110mb/s for writing, 135mb/s for reading. 2) HD fan keep running when I have the thermal sensor connecting to SSD.
Summary: They got me good also. The product description states comes in an upgrade kit and all I got was a bare drive. I'm thinking of returning it. I can get the same drive cheaper somewhere else. This would have been a better deal if it came with upgrade kit. VERY DISAPPOINTED!!
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.
