Kingston's SSDNow S100 solid-state drives are designed for small capacity hard drive replacements and upgrades, making them a perfect match for system integrators and white box builders. With commercial grade components, they're ideal for non-PC applications from gaming and casinos to highway tollbooths and digital signage.

  • newegg SSD Storage Technology Unlike traditional hard disk drives, SSDs have no moving parts, resulting in a quiet, cool, highly reliable storage solution that also offers faster application loading and system responsiveness. And for laptops and netbooks, the lower power needs of SSD’s translate to extended battery life. Higher performance with more durability means you can be truly mobile with confidence.
  • newegg TRIM Support The Kingston SSDNow S100 offers TRIM support on Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Linux 2.6.33 operating systems. Designed to maintain the performance of SSD at an optimal level over the lifetime of the drive, TRIM functions by actively deleting invalid data from the SSD’s memory cells to ensure that write operations perform at full speed. Since a memory block must be erased before it can be re-programmed, TRIM improves performance by pro-actively erasing pages containing invalid data, allowing the SSD to write new data without first having to perform a time-consuming erase command.

Died a sudden death

Pros: Good price. Fast access and data transfer times.

Cons: Sudden failure. One day it was working. Next day, computer couldn't even see it. (Unlike mechanical disks which usually give you signs of their impending demise quite a while in advance.)

Other Thoughts: Fortunately, I was using it as the system disk. My data is on a 4-disk RAID5. Replaced it with a 500 GB mechanical laptop disk. Much more capacity for about the same cost. (I do miss the speed though.)

This drive sucks - stay away

Comments: Knock on wood, the 16GB drives of this same type have not failed yet. Fortunately we only purchased two of these dogs for use in a pilot program. Obviously, we won't be using kingston SSDs for the product.... Caveat emptor.

DEVICE-ERROR on this drive in 3Ware at 158 days

Comments: I am using 2 drives as RAID-1 system disk on a 3ware controller. One of the two drives failed with code DEVICE-ERROR today (158 days, continuous duty). I have decided to replace both disks in this array with 2x 8 GB SLC SSD. I HIGHLY recommend learning about SLC versus MLC before using these in a data center. You absolutely get what you pay for, and I didn't pay much.

Unreliable

Comments: Its not unreliable enough for me to throw it away, but almost which means it probably couldn't be any more annoying.

Unreliable as is, not usable without special settings.

Comments: Currently trying to use it without AHCI and with no NCQ.
On linux you can disable NCQ like this (here sda is the ssd).
echo 1 > /sys/block/sda/device/queue_depth

Will report later if this workaround works.
