Crashed after 3 days of use

by Amar on 5/3/2011

Re imaged my newly received Ideapad, worked perfectly fine for 3 days and after that it would not reboot. Lost a lot of time, in reconfiguration.

Solid and Robust

by Scott on 5/20/2011

I have purchased dozens of these drives to gradually replace mechnical drives that we were using. What happened was that we had WD drives with FFS on new Dell E6400 ATG ... all of which eventually failed within a few months. Replaced the 80 GB WD with 64 GB Kingston SSD. Been running for a year and a half without a single failure. And these computers, they get used sometimes 16+ hours a day. And the speed improvement was tremendous. We have an application which leverages a local SQL database (local to the hard drive). That app literally executes millions of transactions over a one week period (crazy, I know). Anyways, with the WD drives, those suckers were spinning constantly and were very slow. Performance would quickly degrade over time due to fragmentation on the WD's. But with Solid State Drives, you don't need to worry about fragmentation, because Read and Write times are the same, regardless of where on the drive the data is being read or written, so there is no degradation in performance, further you can fill up the drive to 100% with out impact to performance, unlike the mechanical drives, where once you go over 80 to 90% things start to go downhill fast. Anyways, I'm really happy, no problems at all, no failures and I've probably bought about 50 of these so far. Glad to see that the prices have been dropping on them as well. Much cheaper than the ones I was buying in Jan 2010.
