bought mine a few months ago and using this as my main os drive, have had no problems, computer boots in under 10 seconds and games and programes load quicker


Great while it lasted

Was finally convinced to upgrade my machine with two of these.
They look great, solidly built, easy install and very fast.
One of them failed after 4 months, went from perfectly fine to not even powering up in the space of about an hour with no warning. No idea if the other one will follow suit any time soon but I'm not going to trust these as primary drives any more, the technology clearly isn't reliable enough yet. Maybe in another few years.


Raid0 Performance Outstanding

Purchased 2 of these to replace some aging 64Gb Crucial C300's, Raid 0 performance is outstanding, exceeds stated speeds clocking in at 1.2Gb/sec read, 1.1Gb/sec write. Excellent Price & Performance along with 2 free copies of Watchdogs, doesn't get much better than that.


Bad Boy drive

Great performance drive, need not particularly review it, it's stated speeds are actually met if not increased at times, it's stable and constructed out of quality materials. It's kingston also, so failure is almost unheard of. Needed to update the firmware on receipt and then found by disabling windows write caching buffer it improved performance significantly (goto device manager, select the ssd, right click and select properties, policies).

Usual outstanding service from Overclockers with my muchly appreciated pack of haribo, plus a free copy of Watchdogs made this incredibly good value! Thanks OC's!!!


Kingston's Best Drive yet...

Bought myself a couple of these and I have not been dissapointed... Read/ Write speeds are even better than published and at this price point well worth a purchase...
