4 out of 5 eggsKC v. ES Models

Pros: Supports RAID - which I do not recommend trying with regular SATA SSDs. Quick responses from tech support.

Cons: I contacted Kingston support before install to make sure RAID was supported. Response: "The drives will work in a RAID configuration but we advise you not to use these drives in an enterprise environment. RAID 0 or 1 would be OK. But if you plan to use SSDs in a server in a RAID 5 or 10 configuration, we suggest you use our enterprise level SSDs. The biggest differences are the E100 and E50 have much higher endurance and also include power failure support."

Other Thoughts: I'm just running a home lab server off the 3 drive RAID 5. I don't imagine power loss to be a major problem as I'm only running about 30 VMs. I had previously used a group of standard Seagate SATA SSDs and the RAID keeps dropping. I figured that with SSDs being non spinning, error-recover required for RAID striping would be part of any drive's firmware, but it's not. Manufacturer's still produce two separate firmware sets so they can charge $60 more per drive for the enterprise class that comes with the firmware. There used to be a Western Digital tool to load the TLER firmware, but that disappeared when they went to color coding.

5 out of 5 eggsFast and Stable

Pros: These are fast and stable drives with good error recovery.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: We have a mix of about 40 KC100 and KC300 drives in production servers right now, with about a year and a half of hard use on the KC100's. We have yet to have a single one of them die, and the health reported by SMART is still 100% on the oldest and highest usage drives.

They may not be "the fastest" out there, but they're fast enough. I'd take decent speed and stability over bleeding edge speed and spotty stability any day.
