Kingston CustSrv = Amazing!!! 12/29/2011 12:46:21 PM

Pros: I broke off the SATA tab of this SSD when putting my machine together. I "bandaid"ed it to have it working for a bit.

When it did, it was amazing fast. SSD is no joke. It blew my mind how fast bootup/shutdowns are. I also used the cloning software that came with this package and it made the switch from HDD to SSD really easy.

When it didn't, I contacted Kingston months later asking for their suggestions. To my surprise, they were willing to accept an RMA for something I'd been using for 3 months and was at fault for breaking. They overnighted a brand new SSDNOW V100 Upgrade Kit to me and couldn't be more helpful.

Kingston Customer Service is totally awesome!

Cons: I tried RMA'ing the SSD through Newegg, and they refused it.

Overall Review: No problem getting my rebate offer from Kingston either.

Best SSD for the $ 11/22/2011 10:37:19 AM

Pros: This is maybe one of the best SSD that I have. I built many systems with SSD and found that Kingston SSDNow series are the most reliable. Never a blue screen nor errors like the OCZ. Actually this latest Kingston replacing the OCZ Vertex in my PC that every other day failed or had some kind of error. Best Buy,
I akso have it in m

Cons: None that I can think of

Overall Review: 64GB as primary HD for the OS will be fine. Add another 1TB as secondary HD and all is set.

Nice drive, good choice for RAID or HTPC. 10/29/2011 10:03:25 AM

Pros: Not the fastest drive around, but a great value. Put two together in RAID 0 and you've got a very fast 120GB setup. Or throw one in a netbook or HTPC.

Cons: Not as fast as other drives.

Overall Review: Price balances performance. Great way to get into SSD RAID.

Too much Hassle 9/9/2011 9:09:47 AM

Pros: Decent Price for the size

Cons: Dead in under a month of use. Too much of a hassle to get an OS onto the drive.

Overall Review: I couldn't install W7 64bit ultimate directly onto the hard drive. I had to install on another hard drive, do a system recovery and then tweak the system's settings to accommodate for SSD. After I finally got it working, the SSD lasted for a month and then would no longer POST after starting the computer.

Waste of money and effort. I'm staying away from this technology for another 5 years or so until they get these problems worked otu.

Some insight 8/28/2011 6:00:25 PM

Pros: It's fast, not the fastest ssd but better than a 7200rpm hdd

have this installed in my new Asus K53TA laptop and does it fly.

Cons: I got the 64G model on my birthday and it broke 3 months later. Had it installed into my gaming desktop with a 1tb caviar black. When it broke, my motherboard couldn't find it. Had to boot a os from a flash drive and then move my files from my 1tb hard drive and re install windows. Didn't have a spare computer to check if it was my motherboard or something but I eventually found that the ssd was broken. I had it rma'd to kingston and they were sure to get me this as a replacement.

Overall Review: Here's some things you should do when you finish installing windows on this computer.

Turn off Disk Defragmenting. It turns on the trim command but not disk defragging and disk defragging doesn't help a ssd at all.

Also turn on disk compression. You save some disk space and it also increases write and read speed by around 10 mb/s except in 4k file size where transfer is reduced by less than 0.1 mb/s.

Great Little Drive 7/24/2011 12:07:27 PM

Pros: Great Price with the rebate.
Good Performance
Easy To Install
This drive actually includes installation hardware Unlike many other SSD drives out there...
Included Bracket is sturdy.
Windows 64 bit loads very fast, programs too.

Cons: SSD Prices need to go down more.
6.9 WEI a Little Lower than Expected.

Overall Review: Installation is easy if you just use your brain. I turned off System Restore to free up space. Turned off Drive Indexing as its not really necessary on an SSD drive.
