Worst Drive Ever !!

MRITYUNJAY G RAINA, Amazon
27 May 2014
  • 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.

Plagued with BSODs

Troy F., Newegg
3 March 2014
  • Summary: Sent the hdd back to Kingston and they said that there isn't a problem. I have installed this on two laptops and a desktop and all of them experience random BSOD (Win7 & Win 8.1). I ordered a replacement drive and will be contacting Kingston to get yet another warranty replacement.
  • Pros: SSD Performance
  • Cons: Intermittent BSOD issue

Two died in five months

Todd E., Newegg
27 February 2013
  • Pros: Fast, worked great for the first five months.
  • Cons: Running my OS and two of these drives died, within five months. Product model is already discontinued, not 100% confident about replacement. I was glad I was imaging the OS nightly... .

Junk

Morgan H., Newegg
7 October 2012
  • Pros: None.
  • Cons: Literally died within the hour of using the drive. I thought others just had bad experiences with this drive. Clearly they aren't alone. Even worse is that even Newegg isn't even willing to refund the drive so it was a complete waste of my money.

Update From Last Review

Jeryn N., Newegg
22 September 2012
  • Summary: As mentioned above, it worked great while it worked.. Did not last near as long as I would have hoped however.. Will be purchasing a new SSD from another company and hoping I can send this one back to get a replacement as a backup.
  • Pros: Fast, Cheap, worked fine out of the box.
  • Cons: Died on me about 4 days after making my positive review on this SSD. Worked fine while it lasted, but did not last near as long as it should have.

You'd think they knew something about memory

David R., Newegg
26 August 2012
  • Pros: It was relatively inexpensive, so as has been said so often: 'You get what you pay for'
  • Cons: Tried to install it on 2 different machines without success. Initialized (formatted) it using Acronis and Acronis said it was a success. On each machine that I installed it it was visible in the BIOS and in Windows 7 Device Manager. It was INVISIBLE in 'Computer' so it didn't have a drive letter and thus was pretty much useless. I am going to RMA it and go for a name brand.

12 June 2012
  • 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.

Bricked after a month

Brandon K., Newegg
2 February 2012
  • Pros: Was fast. Was happy.
  • Cons: Died after a month. I'm sad. Would not detect in BIOS or USB externally. The RMA process is online. We'll see how smooth it goes.

BEWARE!!!!

Edwin M., Newegg
21 January 2012
  • Summary: If you want to try it, keep ALL of the shipping material and do NOT change the original boot/OS drive. I have been lucky (twice around the block) to have not suffered any issues since I just swapped back in the old drive. Kingston has diligently replaced them but something is just not right with this drive. Hopefully someone, sometime will simply refund my purchase instead of giving USPS all that money in returns.
  • Pros: Migration of data painless, zippy response.
  • Cons: I have bricked two of these in one month on my Dell Inspiron 17R with Windows 7. Your mileage will vary.
