I read the reviews and visited the Kingston website before buying the SSD upgrade bundle, never having used an SSD before, and I recommend you do so too.
Everything worked exactly as it was supposed to do, but note that there are no instructions in the box so make sure you download them from the Kingston site first - and print them (select just the relevant language section, otherwise you will get about 300 pages) or read them on another device. The cloning software worked faultlessly, but it helps to have the printout of what messages to expect along the way.
There was one error message near the end of the process, I chose 'ignore' and the program completed the transfer, and nothing bad had happened yet.
This drive is fitted in a notebook so no extra bracket is needed, and I thought it was missing from the pack. However its under the top foam packing piece and its bright blue!
Read the faqs on the website, there are useful tips including a warning about removing your windows user password before cloning - you can of course reinstate it after the changeover.

The old drive, which is getting bad sectors, is still usable as an external usb drive.
I have no idea how this drive compares with others, but the bundle makes it extremely easy to install and clone the old hd, so it worked for me. And yes, the ssd is quieter and faster too!

Decided since the price of SSD's have come down so much, I would buy this one. Kingston has always been a leader in flash based hardware and is a name I have come to trust with quality, this SSD is no exception. Of course I have to say the difference between using HDD and SSD is mind blowing, installing an SSD is by far teh single best improvement and investment anyone can make to their computer. The Sandforce controller is phenomenal, the chips use transparent compression to save space and speed up the IOPS for enhanced performance. Whilst the capacity of 120GB might not seem great, the system performs super fast and super smooth. From pushing the power switch to arriving at the desktop, it takes just 20 secs; and the shut down performs in less than 5 secs. Programs open immediately, which is to say they open in an eye-blink.

On installing it, it did cause some initial problems with the AMD display drivers, but this was easily fixed by re-installing the OS and switching to AHCI in the BIOS, rather than SATA IDE. AHCI improves the speed of the drive considerably.

I like that the drive comes with a 3 year warranty, but bearing in mind that this drive is capable of performing 3000 re-writes, you could effectively re-write your entire drive every single day for the next 10 years before it would wear out, which is something the average customer is never going to achieve in 3! ;)

The drive is also exceptionally good looking with an eye catching finish in brushed steel.

I was always reluctant to consider an SSD because of their high failure rate, but I think/hope they have matured enough now to be well worth considering.

I have built a new 64bit PC just for photo and video editing, and it made sense to use a SSD for the system disk.
If one is not installing lots of programs (like MS Office) then 240GB seemed a good size without being too expensive. I went for Kingston Technology as they are UK based when the SSD dies in about 3-4 years time. Surprisingly the 240GB version had the best read/write speeds over their 120GB offering.

One is blown away by the speed of the SSD and therefore the PC. My Windows 7 home premium system boots up in less than 45 seconds (it was faster than that initially), and programs start-up almost instantly.
I don't bother putting this PC into hibernate mode, shutdown & startup is almost as quick.

Looking after your SSD is all about minimising the number of writes it has to do.
NEVER defrag an SSD you may even damage it so I'm told. As it's not a mechanical device fragmentation is not an issue. I have PerfectDisk running and they do very limited housekeeping on the SSD.
With 16GB of memory I have disabled the paging/swap files with no problems so far.

I do try to make a complete system disk backup about once a week, and I have an old hard disk available to act as a recovered system disk in-case the SSD dies. However as the system disk is not over cluttered a full system disk backup to hard disk completes in about 10-15 mins.
I do have a second 4TB hard disk for all my data/photos etc.

I only purchased the upgrade bundle kit as it was cheaper than the actual disk itself at the time.
The bundle does include a USB case for you to plug your SSD into and use it as an external disk.

I've just spent a small fortune in building a new gaming/high performance computer for the first time. This accessory pack makes life so much simpler, as it comes with so many nifty bits and bobs! Namely a 2 head magnetic Kingston HyperX screwdriver (which I used for the rest of the build), a USB enclosure for portable storage, 3.5" to 2.5" drive mount and all the data cables!

The one thing I found difficult about choosing an SSD is the massively varying opinion on reliability and performance. Kingston is a well-known make for memory, and they are for a reason. It came beautifully packaged (and is beautifully designed), installs extremely easily and is also quite simply one of the best performers on the market (from a few available benchmarks online). It reads and writes incredibly fast - I can't believe the little time it takes to boot windows or even install/copy large programs and files. Every time I see the install bar ramp up as quick as it does makes me happy inside.

In short, highly recommended, specifically this kit over the lone drive, it's roughly the same price (at this point) and it really does feel like you are getting you're money's worth. Spending more for the Kingston name is something I would do again.

Top form.
