Excerpt: The first time I purchased this drive I did it on accident, I was confusing it with a different version of this series which has a similar name and loos the same. The one I meant to get has more reasonable write speeds compared to today's standards. But I got over it and still used it for the build and I was actually quite surprised by the results!
Excerpt: I had purcchased the Drive for a OS for my system as the 60GB Patriot Pyro drive i had was not big enogh for the whole OS and a few games that i installed so i went bigger to help out with storage and i have found that the Kingston not only was bigger and faster but the price was much better and the heat issue is no longer a problem they stay cool and are very reliable I have been very happy with my purchase and in the future i will be buying another kingston drive as my...
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: 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.
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: 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.
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.
