Summary: I own two other SSDs Corsair Force 3 128GB and a SanDisk. I put the Kingston into one of laptops and installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 64 bit. The Windows Experience score is 7.7. The laptop uses Sata 2 so the performance is hampered a little. The order I would put my SSDs is Corsair, SanDisk, and then the Kingston. The performance rating is higher for the Corsair and SanDisk. I would recommend them before I would ever recommend this Kingston.
Competent Drive, Improves Boot & Load Times, Value Focus

Summary: Length:: 8:27 Mins This is a competent drive that works, improves boot and load times (like any SSD), focuses on value, and is clear what you get. I own 3 SSD drives now, an excellent Intel 510 Series 120 GB SSD that I love but is expensive, a SanDisk Extreme SSD 120 GB that was also competent but offers zero help to migrate from HDD despite its feature focus on upgrade, and now this Kensington 128GB SSD.
Summary: I replaced a hard drive on a 5-year old HP laptop with this SSD. Once you go SSD, it's hard to go back to a regular hard drive. No noise. Less heat. Fast read/write speeds. I can turn on my laptop, bootup and login in about 20 seconds now. Applications like photoshop load a lot faster. It's true that if you're going to upgrade just one thing on your computer, you'll get the most speed advantage upgrading your hard drive to a SSD.
Summary: A while back, the only thing someone could really tell you on how to boost your computer would be to: "Put some RAM in it". While that was sort of the case, you never really saw a marginal boost in speed rather you would see less 'resource hogging', or freezing. What everyone really wanted was programs to open when we click on them, the moment we executed it, and for things to operate as close to our 'speed of thought'.
Performance very installation dependent - see comments

Summary: It was with high expectations that I took a WinXP mirror image from my Seagate drive Seagate ST2000DM001 Barracuda 7200RPM 2 TB SATA 6 GB/s NCQ 64 MB Cache 3.5-Inch Internal Bare Drive and placed it on the Kingston SSD. First clue that something was not as expected was that it took about twice as long to install it on the SSD as it normally takes to the HD. Once I got the image installed on the SSD it booted up just fine.
Can't beat the price, though SSDs are still too expensive

Summary: Works great. Got it, 'cause it had a SATA 6Gb/s interface and was super-cheap at the time. My laptop now starts Windows and performs as fast as a fairly new laptop should! Windows will display the capacity as 100GB, or in the 90GB usable capacity range when all is said and done. It's a little on the "small side" when it comes to storage.
Summary: Good SSD drive, quite easy to fit (once I worked out the BIOS and Windows 7 installation/detection of the SSD drive itself - this was probably due to my very old DELL PC BIOS not detecting at first, but finally worked). Good drive had no real problems, quick to run and very quiet because you don't have the normal HD drive noise all the time..
Ótimo SSD, recomendo a todos que desejam ter a velocidade de um SSD, sem pagar preços absurdos.

Summary: Um ótimo substituto para o HD do seu notebook ou pc. Formatado tem 119GB de espaço livre, suficiente para instalar o sistema operacional e os programas. Velocidade impressionante. Não possui partes mecânicas, o que reduz o risco de dano físico.
Pros: Ótimo SSD. Melhor relação custo/benefício que eu encontrei aqui no Brasil. Leituras e escritas super rápidas, compatível com SATA III e SATA II.
Cons: Até agora nenhum. Apenas o preço que poderia ser mais baixo, já que esse mesmo SSD nos Estados Unidos custa pouco mais que U$100.
