DOA

Adam Caron, Amazon
1 week ago
  • Summary: Bought this simply because it was $35 (a year and a half ago from Staples.) Only just got around to actually doing something with it last week, only to find it is nonfunctional. It is not recognized in the included drive case, nor by the bios if I install it. I have to admit, it is a pretty awesome kit which includes a usable external drive enclosure. I had another SSD drive sitting around (not a Kingston) and used the enclosure with that.

Worst Drive Ever !!

MRITYUNJAY G RAINA, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought 2 of these drives 6 months back. They both died on me! Kingston took 2 months to replace them and then also the speeds are very very poor !! I'm getting 100mb/s write and 170 mb/s read !! I realised after buying these that they are by far the worst SSD's around.

  • Summary: Just got another SSD to replace this slow slow slow old guy (Windows 7 disk score only 5.9). Price is cheap but not worthy.

Don't use it in a Mid 2009 Macbook Pro

Kj Mclaughlin, Amazon
6 September 2013
  • Summary: As others have said this is the wrong choice for a Mac. I get the spinning ball constantly so have decided to take this SSD out and switch to an alternative that works. Kingston don't seem to offer any support for this drive either so it's not a good choice for that reason too. There are a few models which are known to work well with Mac, so I'll opt for one of those.

A Flawed Product...

Phil Hornby, Amazon
5 March 2012
  • Summary: Kingston have been aware of problems with this device, since at least 23rd December 2011. Santa brought mine 2 days later :-( It proved slower than the hard drive it was supposed to replace (write performance is dismal). If you complain, Kingston will exchange for a different model under the warranty; but much better not to have the hassle in the first place! I can't understand why these are still on sale.

  • Summary: i bought this for my lenovo x220. the boothing and closing time increase dramatically. i checked my computer's wei for hdd and notice it did not change. i turned off the computer and turn it on again and it froze. turn it off and turn it on again same result. i re-installed the ssd many times but my computer did not recognize the drive. yes it is fast but if it is not working its useless. i checked kingston website and they have no firmware update.

  • Summary: Jeg kjøpte denne uten å merke noe særlig forskjell fra vanlig hd. Forklaringen er enkel: Hardware.no testet denne disken 5.1.12 og fant ut at den hadde en kontroller fra Jmicron som ødelegger ytelsene. Den blir faktisk tregere enn en vanlig hd! Ikke kjøp denne SSD da dette er et rent svindelprodukt.
