- SATA III
Fast. Easy install. Kingston honors warranty (added extra star for that).
Installed on 12/6/13, died on 4/28/14. Second HyperX SSD that failed in five months. My 240GB failed on 12/6 and this 120GB is what I replaced it with and now itfailed, yesterday.
Kingston will likely replace it like they did with the first one that failed back in December but not sure I want to keep using Kingston as it is such a hassle to have to replace my C: drive twice a year.
I still have the RMA replacement 240GB HyperX that I received for the December failure but I'm thinking that maybe I should try another brand for the main disk in my desktop.
