Experience: 6 Weeks


Fast for the buck. Easy to install.
System unstability. Had to return to Kingston for replacement. May have to do with the Sandforce controller or simply poor quality manifacturing.
Do not buy. Seems not reliable to me. I bought Intel 520 SSD which is much faster and really stable.

Experience: 1 Months


Price, size.
None as of yet.
I can't be happier with this drive. It's snappy and inexpensive.
Paired with a Giga motherboard and windows boots in a flash:)

Experience: 2 Days


-Not the fastest SSD on the market but its worth the price.
-Seen a big Difference in Start up & login.
-It all takes around 25 - 30 seconds to boot up my computer compared to my Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST3500418AS 500GB 7200 RPM Drive it took 2:00 minutes to boot up.

- Price
- Performance
If you want to do a firmware update  you lose ALL your data!!!
My drive came with the latest firmware but make sure you check you drive before you load it with anything. This seems like a really bad flaw to me!

Experience: 6 Months


-Typical physical features like all SSDs
-Opening simple programs (notepad, my computer, control panel, etc) may take anywhere from 0.5-15 seconds for no reason
Bought this around christmas, was always too busy and never knew what I was to expect from my SSD, until I got around to it this weekend. Turns out my Green Cavier had a better read/write speed. I was getting choke ups, read speed of 190, write speed of 19 (both in mb/s).

Experience: 3 Months


It's a SSD, small form factor, ok price when on sale.
Not fast as other SSD, seems too easy to be corrupted, had to RMA first unit.
The first unit had to be RMA, because it worked temporarily.
The second unit is still currently running with no issues, slower than other SSD, but does the job. Ok price when the unit is on sale.

Experience: 3 Months


- small
- light
- works good on my sisters netbook...
- would not work on my desktop for more than 60 sec
I bought this drive originally to serve as a boot drive for my desktop. The first drive I had, had issues being recognized in the BIOS, and I could never complete a windows installation on the drive without it locking up (I left windows it alone for a day and nothing happened...). I ended up RMAing the drive (which NCIX did an awesome job of, as always), got the second one and even managed to get a full install of windows 7 on it. Unfortunately, I ended up with the same problems of the drive not being recognized in my BIOS. I updated my BIOS, unplugged existing storage drives, tried everything I could to get it to work, with no success. Since my sister was around for Christmas, I tried to install it on her similarly aged netbook (2-3 years old). To my surprise, it worked, perfectly. Since it worked, I couldn't justify sending it back to NCIX as defective, and I left the drive in her netbook as a Christmas gift.

So, in reflection of my experience with the drive, two stars: it works, but I would NOT buy it again.

Experience: 2 Months


looks neat? -firmware update  increases write speeds big time plus read speeds become steady. New drives ship with latest firmware installed!
very slow write speeds, inconsistent read speeds. Do not Buy !!!! -firmware update  fixes these. Lacks Windows firmware update  too requires a cd to be burnt. took 8+ months to fix !
Took kingston 8+ months to come out with a firmware update  but it was worth the wait (well sort off,I RMA my old drive).

The drive seems to be the fastest or almost SSD for sata2. Better then low end OCZ Petrol/Octane s2 async flash ssd.

Actually its hard to to believe this is an async flash SSD, since it has high write speeds as fast as my OCZ Octane even though my Octane uses faster sync flash.

Using sata 3 just increases read speed from ~250 to almost 300. Write speed is 190, sata 3 increases write speed a tad and helps out to increase read speeds a tad but random 4k improves with sata 3 over sata 2.

Speeds on this SSD after the upgrade seems pretty consistent, no more fluctuations like before.

Firmware update  requires to burn a cd and boot from it in ide mode. a little bit pain in the ass and it can be picky what system. It needs a windows firmware update  tool.

Great news is the newer v200 drives ship with the latest firmware already installed.

Kingston still has not release a firmware that solves the problem.
Read and write speeds are very inconsistent and vary too much.
30-50MB/s write speeds ! Sometimes it can drop  as low at 10!
Kingston keeps changing the date they will have a new firmware out, now its pushed back to March. Originally was told Jan, then feb.
Would give this 1 star. bur sine I bought in store I don't have an order number :(
Invoice: 5168746 Dec 22nd 2011.
I will use the order number for the other one I already returned so I can submit 1 star review.
I am stuck with the one I bought on dec 22nd as I was waiting for a firmware update   and kingston failed to produce. This review was modfied by poster u 02-17-12 04:18 PM
Kingston offered me a v200+ to replace this drive. No sign of new firmware and the beta firmware I tested did not resolve any issues. This review was modfied by poster v 02-24-12 03:35 PM
