1 out of 5 eggsdo not purchase Kingston SSD products

Pros: at the time of purchase it was a good price with rebate

Cons: regarding Kingston's warranty: I had to get this drive replaced due to continuous data corruption under warranty from Kingston. They would only offer a smaller-capacity drive (although current model) as a replacement. They shipped the replacement "verified signature required" even though I paid up front for the replacement... this wasted an entire day waiting for Fedex to show up. Then, they would not pay for return shipping of the defective item (they will if it is 90 days or less since date of purchase).

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsGIANT PILE OF F7U12

Pros: It was cheap

Cons: You get what you pay for. I have 16 of these drives in the field, slowly but surely they are coming back to me unrecognizable, no data recovery possible. There is a firmware upgrade available, but guess what? It erases the whole disk! Kind of hard to explain to a customer that I need to fix something that hasn't broken yet, and Kingston is a major pain to deal with. Their return policy is a joke. I will NEVER be dealing with Kingston again based on this experience with their rude tech support and "sorry, nothing we can do" attitude.

5 out of 5 eggsI love this product

Pros: Super fast (compared to my WD 7200 RPM legacy drive) and flawless.

Cons: Size. I want it to be much bigger. I'll buy more.

3 out of 5 eggsyear life span

Pros: Boot up time is < 30seonds, pretty stable and never had any bootup issues or windows crash first 6months of owning this SSD. Quite fast compare to my previous HDD. Low power, and low temp (~32C). Boost my windows index for disk data transfer rate from 5.9 to 6.9

Cons: After six months, i started having rare boot up issues and started experiencing lag in the system. After 12 months, i started having frequent boot-up issues. Once this occurred, after 2 days, I couldn't get MB to recognize the SSD. Luckily, i back up all my hard drives on regular schedule with my 6TB storage space :) Upgrading the firmware to SSD and reformatting this SSD couldn't save this inevitable fate of this SSD. Only lasted 1 year and i was expecting least 2 more years, so 2 eggs off from the rating due to short life expectancy and time i've wasted troubleshooting this ssd

Other Thoughts: Replaced it with Sandisk 120GB extreme ssd sata 3. Incredibly fast. Boost my windows index 7.9. Very high read/write speed compare to my previous SSD before it died. I just got this, so i'm hoping i will get least 1 year out of this. Also, value for this SSD is unbeatable.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fast, reliable, and shock resistant. It was everything I was looking for.

Cons: Low capacity? That's really the only problem I have with SSDs.

Other Thoughts: Good, well-rounded SSD. Earned a score of 6.9 on WEI. Not spectacular, I know, but it beats the 5.9 HDD ceiling.

4 out of 5 eggsnot bad for first-time purchase

Pros: Running Win7 x86 and haven't had any hiccups. No moving parts, so no noise whatsoever. Purchased with a rebate so the final price made this very affordable.

Cons: I'm not impressed with the performance. I as hoping I would be able to see a significant difference between this and a 5400RPM SATA. I'm running an HTPC and I notice a slight difference only.

No adapter for a 3.5" bay.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this along with the Intel 320 series 80GB SSD, and even though this has a faster write speed, the Intel has better overall performance.

No problem with rebate, which shouldn't be used to rate this product anyway.

5 out of 5 eggsRebate works and so does the SSD

Pros: Good performance.
Quiet
No problems

Cons: Suggested retail prices of all these SSDs is unrealistically high.

Other Thoughts: You can get faster speeds from other drives at higher prices but this little Kingston boots up Windows 7 with a ton of startup programs in about 25-30 seconds on a Core i3-540 (3GHz) system. Programs and games open fairly quick. Going back to previous install on WesternDigital 7200rpm drive seems downright sluggish in comparison. Rebate came in 6 wks., faster than expected. Don't know why others are complaining. Install the drive, load Windows, run it a day or two then mail in the rebate form! This is our 3rd Kingston SSD (others were 96GB) and we received rebates on all of them with no hassles. You must read the small print and mail it in BEFORE the deadline which is sometimes as little as 14 days after purchase! And, make sure you send them EXACTLY the right paperwork. An invoice from Newegg that you received in email won't do. Go to newegg.com. Print the invoice from their website, folks.

4 out of 5 eggsslow write

Pros: Fast read, up to the claimed 250/MB vs
85/MBs for my Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 16MB on Sata I port

Cons: Slow write, only up to about 50/MBs vs
80/MBs for my Seagate Barracuda

Other Thoughts: Works good as a boot drive for my Windows 7 Ultimate, loads in 21-25 secs.

Was cheap after the rebate, am looking to upgrade to a Sata III soon, but probably Corsair or Crucial.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat dirve, No rebate

Pros: Works great in a workstation running a server right now

Cons: Rebate didn't work

Other Thoughts: If I knew the rebate wasn't going to work, I simply wouldn't have bought it. Feel scammed. Not Newegg's fault.

3 out of 5 eggsWorked when warm... mysterious crash

Pros: Decent read/write speeds. Ummm... quite.

Cons: Mysteriously crashed at 5 months of use (no SMART warnings) with no recoverable data. (fortunately I diff image often) I re-wrote the image and thoroughly tested all sectors... no issues. Good cables. So... I gave it another chance and it worked* for six months.

*At 11 months of use, my bios would fail to recognize the drive when it was cold (ie: room temp). This occurred with 2 different motherboards (and cables). So, I could no longer put the computer to sleep and had to wait for periods of warm-up time before it could be recognized by the system. Very, very strange.

Other Thoughts: Much confidence lost in the Kingston name. Kingston is, however, sending me out another drive (same model). I'll update this pending another trial period.

I give 4-stars to the warranty support at Kingston... it's went pretty smooth so far.
