Most Helpful Customer Reviews

I purchased the drive for my MacBook Pro (Core i7). Installation was a breeze. The performance improvement was significant compared to the 7200 RPM drive that came with the MBP.

However, the drive has failed three times already and it's only 42 days old. Each time, the Apple Disk Utility was not able to repair and required a full re-format/re-partition of the drive. Thanks to a good set of backup from Time Machine, I can usually get it back running in about 3 hours or so.

As this is my primary computer, this repeated failure is unacceptable. If you don't regularly backup your computer or need a reliable computer, STAY AWAY from this drive.

I've already opened a RMA with Kingston, so hopefully a replacement drive will be better. However, from reading other complaints, I doubt it.

Update:
I got an advanced exchange RMA from Kingston. After just over two weeks of using the new drive, I had to go through the Reformat/Re-partition fun... Read more
I have now experienced multiple data loss events with this drive. I knew I was in trouble after about 2 months when checkdisk ran on boot. I had to reinstall 2 applications after that. Knowing that complete failure may not be far behind, I made sure I kept current with backups. A week or 2 later, a boot file corrupted, and my laptop running drive encryption meant I could not recover an individual file. Contacted Kingston and was told, "oh yea, you need to update the firmware on the drive". Did that and restored the drive. Within the month, complete drive failure. Returned to Kingston and they replaced it. This time I would not put it back on my system, just can't afford the downtime and potential data loss. Put in my wife's laptop which is only used for internet access. Two months of use there and dead again.

STAY AWAY - and God help you if you already own it.
I purchased this Kingston ssdNOW 128GB solid state drive with great anticipation. The drive loaded Windows 7 fine and the performance is superb booting up in under 10 seconds. The Kingston Drive started having read errors and freezing while in use just after 90 days and failed completely at just over 120 days.
When contacting Kington via a poorly designed web site there was no calls allowed. I completed an RMA Request Form which required me to enter information that was false. It would not allow me to submit the form unless I indicated what kind of memory it was even though it was a hard drive I was trying to RMA.
I was also advised in writing that the drive would be repaired rather than replaced as it was a discontinued product. There was a long list of discontinued ssdNOW drives which means their failures will all be repaired as well. Given the poor design and fucntionality of their web site I doubt their capabilities at drive repair.
I also cancelled the Kingston... Read more
