I called kingston and told them the problem here is what happen. They first where pointing at my board bios I told him it was updated my board Asus p8h61-m le , then the sata cable which I changed , so after that he asked me to send him crystal disk report which I did and guess what, he told me he cant find problems in the report everything is fine he told me could you point me in what is wrong? i replied look at ReallocationEventCount raw value is 2, you think that is normal? , so he replied sorry did not notes that. wow great technical dude lol. So anyway he suggested I re install the OS to stop the crashing I told him I did that already, So you know what where his conclusions he told me do not warry about the 2 counts there are 8gb spare in the drive you still have lots spare . I replied that is not the point a new drive should not already be using spare blocks he replied you did the drives firmware update I replied yes he replied ok so now you have everything updated so see how the drive goes in the future if you have problems contact me again

yes I read all that but changing Kingston for another Kingston doesn't work for you because problem would be the same.what I wanted to know is:
where did you buy it? and can you change it for something else?

I nghout if from IES in Malta Yes they told me to bring it in and check it and if they find problems they accepted to change it with another brand they have the samsung intel and crucial but they are out of crucial at the moment. what do you think of the samsung evo 840 120gb?

Man that is best ssd at the moment,Go there now I change it don't wait for Crucial,last good crucial was M4.
Now any Samsung and SanDisk Extreme II are the best when it comes to price vs. realibility vs.GB

Like I said go there and beg for forgiveness biggrin.gif

The performance specs for the V300 now match what users get with the async NAND models:

I went on the official site and got this:http://www.kingston.com/datasheets/sv300s3_en.pdf
("en" versus "us" ) - still 450 MB/s smile.gif

Exactly, same issuee with my oldschool Barracuda 7200.12, which has write speed higher than V300

Hi Guys I took my nightmare Kingston back to the shop and he said that others have complained and got theirs back I don't think he will be selling Kingston ssd any longer. Next week he will have the Samsung evo 120gb in stock and I will be replacing my nightmare Kingston with it, so thanks for the help I got from here and I will let you know how the new one does regards

That's true, but notice the small '2' next to the spec, and the note for '2', it was tested with ATTO.

We know any of these SSDs will do 450MB/s with ATTO, so that's not false. The fine print strikes again... doh.gif
