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.
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: 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!.
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.
