2 out of 5 eggsdied with a lot of smoke

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Stand-Alone Drive)

Pros: reasonably fast

Cons: unreliable, often refusing to boot Win 7 ultimate 64 bit

Other Thoughts: This drive has lived for almost two years (bought 11/23/12 and died 11/21/14) and died being under warranty and nearly causing a fire inside my computer: the area around power connector essentially melted. I was lucky to be home when this happened. There was a lot of smoke. I was going to replace it with Samsung sdd for a few months but always postponed this, and now I have to re-install Windows and all applications. Fortunately, the data were stored on HDDs. Remarkably, one Hitachi HDD, which was next to the source of the fire, survived, all covered with soot! The lesson learned - will go next time with Intel or Samsung SSD.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. We apologize for the issue experienced with the HyperX 3K SSD. We are here to help and would like to further investigate this issue. As we stand by all our products, we can replace the drive under warranty as well. 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.

Thank you for selecting Kingston as your upgrade partner.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent SSD so far

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Stand-Alone Drive)

Pros: It's fast. Windows 7 boots in 8 seconds tops. It's also feels like it's very good quality.

Cons: I don't have time to go get a drink before Windows boots.

Other Thoughts: Great SSD that I bought mainly because of the Watch Dogs offer. I probably would have bought the 120GB model if it weren't for that, but I'm actually very happy I got the extra space. It made Windows migration a breeze. I don't think the 120 GB model would have made it so easy.

5 out of 5 eggsstill running strong

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Stand-Alone Drive)

Pros: I bought 2 of these back in 2012 during the black friday sale. I've been running them in raid 0 on several builds and they are still running as strong as when I bought them. Just a follow up review for my previous review dated 12/11/14

Cons: still not free

Other Thoughts: thinking about grabbing 2 more for a 4 ssd raid 0 seeing as the price has dropped even more than when i first bough them.

5 out of 5 eggsStill working great!

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Stand-Alone Drive)

Pros: I've been using this drive mainly for my OS and games that I play frequently. I purchased the drive a little over 2 years ago and it's still running great. No slow downs or apparent drive failures of any kind. This company has earned my trust and I'll look to them for future purchases.

Cons: I wish the drive was this cheap when I first purchased it. Not a serious con.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Stand-Alone Drive)

Pros: + Excellent build quality
+ LSI Sandforce controllers have lost some of their sizzle to Samsung, Barefoot 3, Marvel and others but the Sandforce controller has one of the best algorithms to reduce write wear on the NAND
+ Includes a 2/5" to 3.5" metal drive bay adapter

Cons: - The drive bay adapter is BRIGHT blue! If you have a case with a side window and are concerned with looks, you might not care for the color.
- No drive management software included what-so-ever. Samsung really has a significant lead on this aspect of the SSD market right now.

Other Thoughts: I used this drive in a new build for my mother-in-law. The ASUS A55BM-E motherboard I paired it with lacks a SATA 3 - 6 GB/s pot but that's what you get when buying based on combo deals and promo codes.

Crystal Disk Mark test results:

Seq Read: 276.1 Write: 254.5
512K Read: 263.5 Write: 255.6
4K Read: 33.45 Write: 64.53
4K QD32 Read: 181.2 Write: 168.7

I must say, these numbers are very impressive given that this was on a SATA 2- 3 GB/s SATA port. I sincerely wish I could test this on a 6 GB/s port!

5 out of 5 eggsspeedy and attractive

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Stand-Alone Drive)

Pros: Super fast read/write on SATA III. Capacity for price is excellent on Win7 ultimate build. Kingston has some of the most physically attractive SSDs out there. The casing with the brushed aluminum and accent colors looks very nice.

Comes with a nice metal mounting bracket as well for use in a 5.25" bay.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Always had great experience with sandforce controllers on SSDs. This Kingston is no different. Overall a great SSD!
