Summary: This product was received as expected and works as advertised. My research surrounding competing products was well worth the time. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for this exact solution.
Summary: This is a very fast drive and works perfectly as a Windows To Go workspace. Some reviewers on here don't seem to understand the concept of reviewing an item. A bad rating is for a flawed item, not for your personal problems relating to Amazon or your own failings to understand what you are buying.
Summary: This device works perfectly and is exactly as described. Neither Kingston, nor Amazon have anything to do with Windows To Go, so complaining that you could not get that to work because you are either unqualified to do so, or cannot read is hardly a reason to give a low review rating. Please in the future only review items that you know how to operate. Then if you find a flaw we would all like to hear about it.
Summary: have one month waiting for a serious response from your side, could you please tell me directly which is your position because I hate waste my time front this kind of situations, I did not receive the purchased items, sent the claim to you, and I need my money back to proceed to another purchase of the items because I needed for my business.
Summary: This is a blazingly fast SSD. It can get hot in a computer but so far it hasn't harmed the device at all. I use this to copy videos that I have ripped and then loan the drive to friends. I can copy a 1.2GB video in 12 to 13 seconds! It is amazing. 5 videos, 60 seconds. I might rip a video and then copy it to this and then copy that to my Mac Air. 12 seconds to the Workspace, then less to copy to my Mac Air. It is just phenomenal.
Summary: Set it up as a Windows to Go Enterprise 8.1 32 bit machine. Worked great for a month. Now it won't boot as if it has a bad sector in an important spot. Can't even open as a drive either. Going to try to reinstall it as a win2go again, but it took a long time to get it to the point where it was in the domain and even our corp wireless would work. Kind of sucks that I have to do it all over again.
Summary: Despite its description, it says it needs Windows 8 Enterprise to work. I have Pro. Didn't plug it in, as there was a warning it could mess it up if not done correctly. Sent it to my son, an IT pro, no word on whether he likes it or not. Potential was excellent, but the missing requirement earned it one star. That may be Amazon's fault. I sent Amazon a correction, and some minor unrelated changes were made, but have never heard back otherwise.
Summary: I tried configuring an ordinary (not "Windows To Go" certified product) USB drive for use with "Windows To Go" and there is a definite, noticeable speed improvement, so the product works as designed. However, one thing I didn't realize is that there's no native support for hardware-specific devices when using "Windows To Go" -- devices will show up as Unknown in Windows Device Manager.
