4 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Stand-Alone Drive)

Pros: Fast compared to regular HDD

Cons: The price went down quite a lot but you have to pay more when you do not want to wait too long so not really a Con

Other Thoughts: I have it for almost 3 years installed on a 2009 Macbook pro it is not used intensively, only when I am away from home, so far so good.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive, but Difficulties Arose

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Stand-Alone Drive)

Pros: This drive was my first SSD and the increase in speed was amazing. The product worked well for over a year and reduced my boot time by a great deal.

Cons: I had some initial issues getting my motherboard to recognize the drive. After a year and a half the drive stopped being recognizable at all.

Other Thoughts: I am going through the RMA process and I will update this review once it has been resolved.

2 out of 5 eggsdied with a lot of smoke

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Stand-Alone Drive)

Pros: reasonably fast

Cons: unreliable, often refusing to boot Win 7 ultimate 64 bit

Other Thoughts: This drive has lived for almost two years (bought 11/23/12 and died 11/21/14) and died being under warranty and nearly causing a fire inside my computer: the area around power connector essentially melted. I was lucky to be home when this happened. There was a lot of smoke. I was going to replace it with Samsung sdd for a few months but always postponed this, and now I have to re-install Windows and all applications. Fortunately, the data were stored on HDDs. Remarkably, one Hitachi HDD, which was next to the source of the fire, survived, all covered with soot! The lesson learned - will go next time with Intel or Samsung SSD.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. We apologize for the issue experienced with the HyperX 3K SSD. We are here to help and would like to further investigate this issue. As we stand by all our products, we can replace the drive under warranty as well.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent SSD so far

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Stand-Alone Drive)

Pros: It's fast. Windows 7 boots in 8 seconds tops. It's also feels like it's very good quality.

Cons: I don't have time to go get a drink before Windows boots.

Other Thoughts: Great SSD that I bought mainly because of the Watch Dogs offer. I probably would have bought the 120GB model if it weren't for that, but I'm actually very happy I got the extra space. It made Windows migration a breeze. I don't think the 120 GB model would have made it so easy.

5 out of 5 eggsstill running strong

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Stand-Alone Drive)

Pros: I bought 2 of these back in 2012 during the black friday sale. I've been running them in raid 0 on several builds and they are still running as strong as when I bought them. Just a follow up review for my previous review dated 12/11/14

Cons: still not free

Other Thoughts: thinking about grabbing 2 more for a 4 ssd raid 0 seeing as the price has dropped even more than when i first bough them.

5 out of 5 eggsStill working great!

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Stand-Alone Drive)

Pros: I've been using this drive mainly for my OS and games that I play frequently. I purchased the drive a little over 2 years ago and it's still running great. No slow downs or apparent drive failures of any kind. This company has earned my trust and I'll look to them for future purchases.

Cons: I wish the drive was this cheap when I first purchased it. Not a serious con.
