Cons: Worthless warrenty
Other Thoughts: RMA approved (after much work on my part to satisfy Kingston) on 7/28. Today is 9/25 and the replacement still has not shipped. Might as well buy no-name items from an auction site. At least then when it dies you just bin it and get on with your life.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Worked Great
Cons: Died Soon
Other Thoughts: I loved this drive. I had it partitioned as 9GB Fat32 and 20GB EXT4 with FatDog 64 (bootable) installed in the large side.
Came up "read only" after 3 months. Now I'm TRYING to get a RMA from Kingston. Kingston is TRYING to make is such a pain in the A that I'll just toss the worthless hunk of scrap and get on with my life.
What good is a 5 year warranty that takes more time to file for than the value of the item? Now I've been informed that they will (at their facility) check to see if it is counterfeit and if so confiscate it for trademark infringement. This despite the NewEgg invoice I sent them.
It is not like I bought it from some online auction site then waited for "China Post" to deliver it..
Great customer service (not).
Pros: None so far - still in the build process
Cons: Horizontal USB3 port is HARD to access in medium/large size case.
Other Thoughts: I've built about 15 systems from scratch and moved motherboards between cases about 15 more. Never bent a pin till tonight. The USB3 connector is nearly impossible to access in a medium large (Antec One) case once installed. I tried to tease the connector in. Shoulda pulled the board to plug in but you are not supposed to have to.
If you get this board or another with the horizontal plug BE CAREFUL.
This really is a poor design. The connector body on most case USB3 plugs is large and heavy and hanging it "in front" of the board would put it into the drive cage on many smaller cases.
I'll pull the board, straighten the pins and once I get the plug in and board running I'll update this review in a couple days.
