2 out of 5 eggsDo Not use in servers

Pros: It worked well for about 3 months in a RAID 1 (mirrored) Intel Matrix/Rapid Storage environment.

Cons: Newegg please remove the "Enterprise" terminology on the KC series of drives, as the KC series drives are NOT enterprise grade. They are desktop/notebook SSD's with DuraWrite and Enterprise SMART technology but that is all.

Used the KC300/60G just for the Server OS, no data storage purposes, to ensure quick startup time of the server.
So no databases, no file serving, etc. Minimal writes/reads to the SSD as the separate SAN server handles the heavy workloads.

The drive failed after 3 months causing the RAID 1 array to crash and become unrecoverable.

Despite the product listing being described as "Enterprise grade" on newegg, it is in fine print at the bottom of their SSD webpages. "This SSD is designed for use in desktop and notebook computer workloads and is not intended for Server environments."
They also advertise their Enterprise grade SSD's as DuraWrite and Enterprise SMART technology, being used in datacenter servers on all of the SSD pages. Which the KC series of drives offer and both utilize MLC NAND Flash.
"The E and KC Series of SSDs enable IT managers to monitor an expanded list of Enterprise-grade SMART attributes. When using third-party disk utility software, they can access these attributes in order to attain enhanced insight into the health and status of their drives."

Other Thoughts: I would have speced out the E50 or E100 series drives had it been apparent these were not truly enterprise grade.
Be warned when specing the E series of SSDs, they must be run in a RAID environment or you will need to change your system's settings to accommodate it.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Will,
I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. We apologize for issue experienced with the KC300 drive. We stand by all our products and can replace it under it's three year warranty. As you mentioned, the KC300 does include enterprise-grade SMART attributes. This allows for easy drive monitoring in an enterprise environment which makes the KC300 best suited in a client workstation (laptop or desktop). Here you can find more information about Enterprise versus Client SSDs: http://www.kingston.com/us/ssd/enterprise/best_practices/enterprise_versus_client_ssd
For any further assistance, please call us at 1-800-435-0640 (USA and Canada only) M - F 6am - 6pm PT and I or another available Technician will assist you. Please be sure to have the part in question on hand when you call.

Thank you for selecting Kingston as your upgrade partner.

4 out of 5 eggsspeedy little sucker

Pros: Fast boot up low power consumption vs. hdd.

Cons: the adapter that is in the kit is not for any desktop that i know of but would be handy for your laptops. be sure to buy the 2.5 to 3.5 adapter to put in desktop. that is the reason for the 4 eggs not 5. i should have looked at the pictures since they are there. sorry to you web builders
