Firmware Rescue

Eric P., Newegg
28 February 2013
  • Pros: Reliable drive when Firmware is kept up to date.
  • Cons: The original Firmware was flawed. TRIM was disabled, and the drive would overheat and nearly come to a crawl.

  • Summary: Bought one of these recently (not from Amazon) at a good low price which was considerably cheaper than other brands of 128GB SSDs. It was supplied in the new plastic blister pack and includes a 2.5mm spacer for converting the slim 7mm SSD into a 9.5mm SSD.

careful with dimensions

  • Summary: According to the Kingston site the 256G version is still 9.5 mm. I need 7mm for my laptop. The 128G and 64G versions are 7mm.

It's quite good...

Mr. R. M. O'flanagan, Amazon
23 December 2011
  • Summary: ...but not awesome. Bear in mind that I upgraded from 2 7200rpm 250GB hard drives in RAID 0, so if you only have an old 5400rpm laptop drive you'll probably see a much bigger difference, but I can't say that this provided the boost I was expecting given the reviews of SSD's I read prior to purchase.
