I replaced the drive in my 5 year-old Lenovo U330 laptop in an attempt to give it a new lease on life. It is now so fast that I was able to encrypt the entire drive with TrueCrypt and still get better performance than the original drive. The included...

Amazing Improvement on Old Laptop


Fujitsu T4220 Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2 GHz 4 GB RAM Windows 7 Pro, 32 bit

The kit is extremely nice for upgrading a laptop. I had a 100GB, 5400RPM, SATA II hard drive in my 5 year old Fujitsu laptop, and it was starting to run fairly slow on simple tasks. I cloned all of my data in about an hour using the boot software CD...

I could see the screwdriver needing a hex key instead of just two phillips heads a a flat head. It worked fine for my laptop but I know some other computers/devices require a hex key

can't reinstall windows?


I'm not alone in this case, forums on google have a lot of customers complaining about this. I hesitated between Raptors and SSD 10 months ago... not sure I made the right choice...speed is really there, but for only 10 months, sorry but i'll wait...

Speed! And that's about it ! Are they worth it? Well, considering the fact that after 10 months, raid 0 failed and one ssd died. The other one was fine until i tried to reinstall windows on it without raid. Windows would not see it. Done everything in...

SSD life is way too short for the money asked! I could understand one failure, but not to be able to install windows back on the other ssd was the last straw. I only hope I can find a solution for my last SSD other than data drive use

Good kit, beware the bundled Acronis version


As always if you are less than experienced remember to shut down Secure Boot in BIOS before installing. Can save you quite a few headaches.

Quick, installation kit is very simple to use, good beginner kit if you are unsure of how to clone your existing drives. Very good with any Windows 7 or older OS

Acronis bundle is poor. It's an outdated version so it doesn't play well with quite a few of the newer GPT drives with Windows 8 (of which, this is one). Failure to recognize the HD on an Asus V55 which my customer purchased. I had to use the updated...

Solid performance..


Hyperx memory and SSD drives are all I use in my gaming systems. I used hyperx beast 1866 memory with this drive in an AMD build with the 8350 cpu and I love it.. You can have issues with any pc parts but with hyperx I have had none to report yet. I...

I have used hyperx products in every gaming pc I have built and I have had no issues with any of them ; This drive is super with performance that I have not found anything that can touch it. The drive is fast and reliable ; For the money you can't beat...

none ever
