1 out of 5 eggsDead in no time

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3B/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Upgrade Bundle Kit)

Pros: Excellent SSD when working. Blazing fast!

Cons: Today will mark the second time that I am warrantying this product. The first one I got failed within 4 months, and Kingston sent me out a new one in no time. This one has lasted a little over a year. I was getting HD warnings on boot up. I'd let the scan run, but it would always hang, and never complete. I had originally thought the HD in question was an old HD I had my music stored on (it's been showing signs of failure lately), so after a while i payed it little heed and stated skipping the boot up scan, only to come home today to find the SSD dead. Windows couldn't find the boot drive. I tried to re install and Windows couldn't find the drive. Switched the SATA and power cord and got the same results. It's dead a little after it was originally replaced.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsgamers perspective

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3B/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Upgrade Bundle Kit)

Pros: got it on sale a long time ago , I have punished this thing ever since and it's still running like it's brand new.
And , yes , I do test my system components regularly.
installation was user friendly and painless.
the SSD and other components are all very high quality , to the point that they can be considered as "eye-candy" and look great in a case with a glass side panel

Cons: not a single one whatsoever

Other Thoughts: would certainly buy again.

5 out of 5 eggsLOVE IT.

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3B/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Upgrade Bundle Kit)

Pros: This is one solid SSD that has lasted and given super performance.
I have run this drive well over a year now in a gaming pc and not had one issue. I also have the 240gig drive like this and it's been just as good. The performance boost it gives over the old drives is worth the extra money.
If you want super performance at a good price you will not beat this drive.

Cons: None..

Other Thoughts: I use this drive and the 240gig drive like this one as boot drives for gaming pc's with a few most played games installed and you can't beat it.
You will never go back to the old hard drives ever once you see the performance you have been missing.

5 out of 5 eggsGood stuff....

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3B/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Upgrade Bundle Kit)

Pros: Well....where do I start...in a PC case, in a small town not so long ago, lived a man who only used HDDs...no really, this thing is great. Might not be the "best of the best" when it comes to SSDs, but it is from Kingston, falls into their HyperX category, and is faster than any Hdd i have owned (of course). Difference of night and day between HDD and this small piece of awesomness (huh?)...good stuff Kingston, well done.

Cons: As most say, was not free and there were no unicorns bearing bags of fun candy flying from the package....

Other Thoughts: Marshmellows and fuzzy....oh...not those thoughts...wish I could have had enough coin to buy the 400 plus GB variety to place many games on.....(curses...unicorns taking my cash).

1 out of 5 eggs*sigh

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3B/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Upgrade Bundle Kit)

Pros: Extremely fast speeds Both loading and booting IF you have sata 3 on your mobo
sleek design
silent while operating

Cons: Didn't even last a year ( 10 months )
Small storage space for the cost of the Drive

Other Thoughts: With new technology comes Its hits and misses I obviously caught one of their " misses " Kingston is a reputable company and every know again a flawed product gets to the consumer.

IM awarding 1 egg because the product i received was faulty plain and simple

5 out of 5 eggsFast, but not fast enough.

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3B/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Upgrade Bundle Kit)

Pros: SSD, looks fantastic, came with a lot, nice USB encasement, relatively fast.

Cons: None really. My computer didn't recognize it in the USB right away, but a format solved that.

Other Thoughts: Alright look, it IS really fast, but after extensively benchmarking, I can say that I would probably recommend the Samsung 830 Pro instead. It depends on what you want. The Samsung is much faster, but this one looks a million times better.
AS-SSD gives me the following scores:
This SSD (Hyper-X): 300
Samsung 830: 574
Samsung 840: 1077

Higher is better, but looks are very important to me, and nothing tops this SSD in terms of those.
