_
"I wrote a somewhat negative review after spending money on an enclosure that worked OK with a 100 gb HDD but not with my SSD."

Speed

Speed:
"I had problems installing Windows OS in it and it was slow when I got it working."
_
"I don't know why anyone would release an unstable version of firmware, but my guess is that it was rushed to the website to address problems with performance."
_
"Be advised this drive is not yet ready for prime time until the speed problem is addressed AND a better F W updater is available."
_
"I thought I got a defective drive with unpredictable performance and requested a replacement."
_
"One problem I noticed was that it was really slow."
_
"The single best performance upgrade you can make for your PC."
_
"Normally this wouldn't be a problem for me since it works well and it's still fast, but by comparison to other SSDs I have worked with in the past the speeds here are just horrible."
_
"It is not a super performing SSD but I got it on sale and it works great!"
_
"Speeds are great and the load times make this well worth the cost."
_
"i don't have problem with this ssd, works very good and my laptop works more fastest."

Windows

Windows:
"Installed drive in SEP 2012, ran a clean install of windows and I have not had any hard-ware related crashes or failures since."
_
"I had problems installing Windows OS in it and it was slow when I got it working."
_
"I hooked the drive back up to my desktop and it failed to be recognized by Windows."
_
"Also, the F W updater is not MAC compatible so you must do updates on a Windows machine and not just a Windows machine but an Intel machine."
_
"When Windows restarts, Windows indicates that it was a Matrix Storage error (this has to do with the SSD talking to Windows).I have updated windows to the latest releases on both my desktop and laptop and both machines are running Windows 7 64-bit."
_
"+ Stuff loads almost instantly now.+ 120GB is a pretty good amount of space, Windows 7 takes up maybe ~20GB or so, leaving plenty of space for other software.+ I'm now a SSD convert, and will never buy a standard HDD ever again!"
_
"I visited Kingston's site to download the toolbox, which I found to only show SMART readings from the drive instead of actually offering a box of tools to make setting up Windows a lot easier."
_
"It works great for OSX and Windows (bootcamp)."
_
"That is, I was able to install the SSD in my laptop and install Windows on the SSD and get my computer up and running as expected; however, it eventually crashes (something that NEVER happened with my previous traditional HDD)."
_
"Installed in a Windows 7 machine perfectly not additional hastle or updating required."
