3 out of 5 eggsGreat Start, Bad Finish

Pros: - Has significantly better read/write than an HDD, as it should
- Good entry level price

Cons: - Died not even 2 weeks outside of its 1 year warranty without warning

Other Thoughts: There have been a lot of mixed reviews about this drive. It seemed like a good idea at the time, and I don't regret it, but I won't be buying another one of these again.

5 out of 5 eggsSSD drive decent

Pros: It works and wasn't DOA. I wasn't disappointed with the performance but then I got a good deal for 256gb. I put it in a machine that only has sata 2; so I'm happy. It works much better than it did. I am amazing what these drives will even do in an older computer. It just perks it up.

Cons: No cons. It wasn't free.

1 out of 5 eggsGood Start, early Finish

Pros: Start up was easy and pretty fast...

Cons: After 2-3days of use, the ssd was getting very slow. At some point it freezes the whole system. That's not the way it should work!! After a couple of reinstalling I gave up.. Very sad to pay that price and get a 1 day product...

1 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely Disappointing

Pros: None, really

Cons: I never tested this in the field, but I did benchmark it. I could live with the read rate considering what's advertised (and the discounted price I got it at), but the write rate is abhorrent. The results are as follows:
Avg Read: 268 Mb/s
Avg Write: 77.35 Mb/s
Seek Time 0.2ms
ADVERTISED:
Read: 300 Mb/s
Write: 230 Mb/s

Other Thoughts: I'd recommend looking at a different SSD.

1 out of 5 eggsOk for 1 charge, then nothing

Pros: It was fun for the first ten minutes.

Cons: After the first charge, like so many others, it died.

2 out of 5 eggsProblems With Freezing

Pros: Works fast, boots windows quickly

Cons: I bought this because it was the cheapest 256 GB SSD I could find. I'm having problems with this drive freezing . I installed Windows 7 and everything seemed to work fine. Every now and then it will cause my system to lock up and a couple of times Windows failed to start. I checked Kingstons website for firmware updates and they dont address a freezing issue. I'm regretting I didn't shell out a few more dollers for a quality SSD.

4 out of 5 eggsMet Expectations

Pros: Good performance for the $135 during a sale.
Pleasantly surprised with boot speed increase.

Cons: Not latest hardware, but you knew that already.

Other Thoughts: I got this SSD as a moderate upgrade to my 7200 RPM HDD. Since I managed to get it during a sale, I am quite satisfied with it so far. Though I am not sure how much my boot speed increase is due to a fresh install of Windows, there is a definite difference from my previous installation (about a minute vs. 3+ minutes previously). Not bad if you get it during a sale and know that this isn't the latest thing on the market.

5 out of 5 eggsCrazy fast!

Pros: Installing this drive reduced my boot time from about 3 minutes to about 20 seconds on my 4 year old Gateway laptop. I have 4 GB RAM and am upgrading to 8 so I expect to get that down to around 10. Windows Update is an instantaneous blip across the screen now where it was a couple minutes of wait time before. This is my first SSD and I cannot imagine not having one in every PC I use from here on out.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

Pros: Has a large enough capacity for me to use just one drive in my system. It's not the fasted ssd out there, but it's much faster than a standard hard drive. Loads the OS, web browsers, and games very quickly. 7.0 windows experience index rating.

Cons: could be faster

5 out of 5 eggsSystem Feels Faster

Pros: I bought this to replace a SATA I HDD. Rated 5.9 on Windows rating, which put it on par with SATA III hard drives, but the system FEELS much faster. Win 7 boots in seconds. Excel, Word, Lightroom and levels in Skyrim load in a couple of seconds versus a hard drive.

Cons: none
