2 out of 5 eggsNot Worth

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3B/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Upgrade Bundle Kit)

Pros: Works well when it works.

Cons: Dies inexplicably. I am on my third HyperX 3K in two years, having returned the other two for a new one as they died. Now this third one is dead and I just want it to be over. Meanwhile friends who bought SSDs at the same time I got my 3K are still happily using their original purchases (Samsung).

Other Thoughts: I have always had great luck with Kingston products. I have been using their RAM since I started building computers. The headaches resulting from SSDs dropping like flies, however, has steered me towards other companies.

Manufacturer Response:

We perform 100% testing on all of our products to ensure quality and reliability, as detailed here: http://www.kingston.com/us/company/testing .

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3B/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Upgrade Bundle Kit)

Pros: Fast and reliable! Just what you want in an SSD.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I've used quite a few Kingston SSD's, both the SSDNow and HyperX line. No failures so far. I don't go so far as to benchmark the drive but I don't think I've ever gotten below a 7.6 on the Windows 7 performance index.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3B/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Upgrade Bundle Kit)

Pros: Silent, fast, backwards-compatible to SATA-I, included external drive bay & software.

Cons: Runs warmer than I expected.

Other Thoughts: I replaced the drive in my 5 year-old Lenovo U330 laptop in an attempt to give it a new lease on life. It is now so fast that I was able to encrypt the entire drive with TrueCrypt and still get better performance than the original drive.
The included external case and software made imaging the drive a snap.

2 out of 5 eggsDied

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3B/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Upgrade Bundle Kit)

Pros: Fast. Best price/capacity/performance ratio when i bought it on september 2012.

Cons: Slowly diying. I get random system freeze, it shows SSD utilization at 100% but nothing happen. It can last from 30 sec to 5 minutes. I used to think it was Rome II's fault but since i installed it on my WD HDD the game is running fine.
Sometimes system does not boot.
I know it will die, it just not fully dead yet.

Other Thoughts: As many other reviews, 200$+ for a little more than a year's worth is expensive.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. We apologize for the issue experienced with the HyperX 3K SSD.

1 out of 5 eggsDied after 10 months

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3B/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Upgrade Bundle Kit)

Pros: Fast, pretty cheap for the amount of storage.

Cons: Cheap for a reason. I previously wrote a 5 star review, which I now retract entirely.

The drive just up and died after 10 months. Pretty disappointed, used to think Kingston was a reputable company. Maybe their quality went downhill when I wasn't looking.

Other Thoughts: I'll stick with Intel SSDs from now on. They seem to be the most reliable based on personal experience. In the mean time I'll talk to newegg and see what can be done.
