A great SSD but the Kingston SSD Toolbox Software sucks.

Summary: Update: 5/5/2015 Just spoke with Kingston customer support. They didn't seem to be quite interested in my question but confirmed with me that the Kingston SSD Software is meant to open up like that at every Windows boot.
Pros: I believe the performance and the drive is OK, its doing what it needs to do, be fast and reliable is all I want. That sums it up. Tested on the laptop that has a SATA III 6Gb/s port I can comment to the max theoretical speeds of the SSD of 450/450MB/s read/write. So I ran two different types ben...
Cons: Finally last but not least I installed the Kingstong SSD Toolbox software, (v1.08) from their website because I wanted to monitor my drives health. I thought it would probably be like the Samsung Magician Software that I had on my 840EVO drive that lets you monitor the drive status, health, etc. ...
Summary: Now here's a tough product to review. Physically installing it was a nightmare, to the point where I was one four-letter word away from cramming it all back into the box and beginning the return process. The instructions were little help and the enclosed bracket didn't seem good for anything at all.
Pros: This make a huge difference from my laptop hdd, I was always frustrating on how my laptop was slow even tho I have an I7 and 8gig of ram, so I decided this was time to go ssd and that one did make a huge improvement.
Cons: It will drain your laptop battery a bit more than a normal HDD because it's basically ON (Full capacity) or Off. If you do some research you'll find that ssd use generally more power. If you play a bit around with the setting you'll be able to get something acceptable.
Excerpt: Bottom line - my PC boots up and shuts down in record time: Was taking 2~3 minutes for each cycle with my 7200rpm Hard Drive, now takes 15 seconds!I would have rated this 5 stars if not for a small glitch that Windows 8 and 8.1 users will encounter: Read on.Basic (easy to follow) instructions are to...
Summary: I bought this product to enhance my computers performance but I ran it to a snag in the begging . I tried everything but nothing worked so I used the tech help that Kingston thoughfully provide for free .
Summary: I would go for a full star count, but I'm still having a hard time figuring out how to install a recovery section on it. Whether it be me or the drive, I don't know. I just wish that every time that the power is unexpectedly cut or I run a BIOS setting that gives me an issue, that I don't have to...
Pros: It's fast even what I unwittingly filled up all of it's memory. Boots fast too. How fast? Sanic fast! Loads games up like nothing is there. Garry's Mod-boom! Loaded! GTA4, butter smooth loading, and so on. Download? Please, this thing got it covered.
Cons: See other thoughts. Not really any but the listed below.
