Been around a month since I picked this up.
This was not my first foray into SSDs so I knew what to expect and this does not disappoint.
Needed a higher end model for my laptop though, my desktop has a 60gigs for the OS and programs and 7 HDDs for all the other stuff, my laptop does not have the luxury of all those other HDDs so I bought this expensive 256gb one instead.
Not as zippy as my Intel SSD but no real complaints.
I did read up about this before buying and was under the impression I would get the cloning software with it, unfortunately that didnt happen - that only comes with the "bundle".
For the price of this SSD I think it was a bit cheap of Kingston to cheap out on the cloning software - which is why I am dropping one star in this review.
Amazon of course gave me impeccable service as well as fantastic pre and post sale answers to my queries.
No matter which SSD company you go for;
once you go SSD you ain't going back!!!

Ok, I just dropped a star for this because of some of the problems that I am having with it.
I am on a Win 7 Pro machine and had to reinstall the OS twice because of it (the OS) getting corrupted for some reason - the way it starts is it tells you it needs to run chkdsk and when you say ok, it runs the program, makes some changes and then the computer fails to boot when you restart :(
After the OS reinstall (2 months later) I find the computer hanging for a few seconds sometimes and its not as snappy as when it was new, it seems to be slowing down a bit for some reason. I checked and I have the latest firmware, am not sure where the problem lies but I think I need to wipe the disk clean again and start from scratch to get my snappyness back - not something I am looking forward to doing.

Same problem as above again, and i'm tired of re-installing the OS over and again, I've ordered a Samsung SSD and will be getting rid of this once and for all.

Thank god I ordered it directly from Amazon (even though I paid just a wee bit extra than ordering from some other seller), as it was less than a year they accepted it as a refund with absolutely no quibbles. Been running the Samsung for around 3 weeks now (also bought from Amazon) and not a single problem, it's like night and day.
Service from Amazon is as usual amazing, will be using my entire refund money to buy from Amazon again. *** Happy! ***
