5 out of 5 eggsSolid Product

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

Pros: -Light
-Solid Construction

Cons: -Nothing so far

Other Thoughts: Bought this product a few years back as a replacement drive for my PS3 where it performed wonderfully. It started up faster and loaded digital games faster. All in all very satisfied with it.

Now, i have since removed the SSD from my PS3 and reinstalled the old HDD into it so that I can use this SSD in a PC build i have planned for the near future. I have no doubt that this drive will perform just as well as the day i bought it, but only time will tell. It has PLENTY of room for the OS and several large games/programs to be installed without fear of running out of room. Looking forward to using this in the build. Plus, it just looks awesome. Will definitely be mounting it so it's visible if i can.

Edit: Build is complete, and as expected the PC boots in seconds. Paired with 8GB of DDR4 RAM, this drive makes for a very fast pc. Only thing holding me back now it my CPU.

2 out of 5 eggsFailed with no warning

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

Pros: It was fast while it worked.

Cons: After about 3.5 years (so just out of the warranty period) this hard drive decided to completely stop working out of nowhere.

Other Thoughts: I would only recommend this drive to people who don't mind losing both data and money. Do yourself a favor and buy an SSD that's more reliable with a better warranty.

3 out of 5 eggsWorked great, but really flimsy sata connector broke

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

Pros: Very fast (>500MB/sec), seems reliable without any flash failures. Good solid drive. Used it on my every day main machine so it got a fair amount of use.

Cons: The SATA connector broke when I was doing some work on the machine and tried to remove it. I looked very carefully at the plastic portion that goes into the cable and noticed it was quite thin. Compared it to my intel SSD and Seagate drives. Definitely thinner material. I pulled the broken piece out of the connector, yup its quite thin and delicate.

Other Thoughts: Other than the connector, this is a great drive. Kingston should really replace their connector source with a slightly more robust connector. Granted, most people do not touch the drive after installing it. So its probably my bad.

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

Pros: Fast compared to regular HDD

Cons: The price went down quite a lot but you have to pay more when you do not want to wait too long so not really a Con

Other Thoughts: I have it for almost 3 years installed on a 2009 Macbook pro it is not used intensively, only when I am away from home, so far so good.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive, but Difficulties Arose

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

Pros: This drive was my first SSD and the increase in speed was amazing. The product worked well for over a year and reduced my boot time by a great deal.

Cons: I had some initial issues getting my motherboard to recognize the drive. After a year and a half the drive stopped being recognizable at all.

Other Thoughts: I am going through the RMA process and I will update this review once it has been resolved.

2 out of 5 eggsdied with a lot of smoke

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

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:

As we stand by all our products, we can replace the drive under warranty as well.
