1 out of 5 eggsDOA

This review is from: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Well it was quick for the day or so it worked...

Cons: Plugged it in, installed windows 7. Ran the SSD for literally a weekend... Died. Worthless junk. Certainly a bit unhappy that I'm paying to ship it back. Hopefully the replacement works better

Other Thoughts: If you are going to pick up a SSD, pay a bit more money.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Deal

This review is from: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Easy to setup and load Win7.About 20 second boot time.There were no updates on the Kingston website but they have a Toolbox to download.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It was a very good price when I bought it.This was the bare drive so it came with no hardware or software.I knew that before I bought it.I had the screws,cables and an adapter to mount it.
Fast shipping with no damage.
Thanks Newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

This review is from: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Clients love em. Fast enough for me, and I do video editing *(see other thoughts.) In a laptop or desktop, this screams.
Nice metal case. Pair it with some fast ram, and ye-haa!
Perfect for HTPC, and for 1080p streaming, and faster gaming, do it!
I will never go back to using spinny hdd's for the OS drive.

Cons: None, don't believe the negative reviews, I have gone through almost 10 of these and no issues, and happy clients :)

Other Thoughts: *I would not recommend this for video editing as the HyperX series is build for that, this is for average joe's who want speed and gamers. Some people say the nand chips are "soo slooow", they work fine for me. If I didn't have a benchmark tool could I tell the difference in speed/performance between my OCZ's, HyperX, M4's, nope. (is there? yes.)

4 out of 5 eggsgood economics

This review is from: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: fast. cheap 120gb for about $60. can't get much better than that. installs windows 7 in about 20 minutes. windows 8 in less time

scores 7.9 on windows index.

best thing you can do with an old computer... swap out the old magnetic hard drive and put in an ssd

less expensive than samsung but is it more reliable? time will tell

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: I hope this drive last at least two years but with ssds you never know when it will go kerplut

a lot of ssds are like the old IBM "deathstar" drives

* fingers crossed *

1 out of 5 eggsFailed After 8 months!!

This review is from: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: If you like to RMA things this is you SDD !

Cons: A lifespan 8 months is lame

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. We apologize for the issue experienced with the V300 drive. We perform 100% testing on all of our products to ensure quality and reliability, detailed here: http://www.kingston.com/us/company/testing . Even so, all electronic components have a small chance of failure. The V300 has a three year warranty and typically should live out live it's warranty period. We stand by all our products and can replace the drive under it's warranty. It usually only takes a less than 10 minute phone call to get the warranty replacement set up. If you have not already, please call us at 1-800-435-0640 (USA and Canada only) M - F 6am - 6pm PT and I or another available Technician will assist you.

Thank you for selecting Kingston as your upgrade partner.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent SSD

This review is from: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Excellent SSD for the money. It has breathed new life into an older but still highly usable Work Computer. The system acts like it has 8 gb of ram now even though it has only 2 gb of DDR 2 and a 2.2 gb Duo core processor on Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit.
Buy one!

Cons: Cant comment on longevity of these SSD drives althought they are rated for 1,000,000 hours of use , we shall see. Buy one you wont regret it.

1 out of 5 eggsShort life!!!

This review is from: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: fast load of Win8.1 and Linux Mint dual boot on UEFI ASUS M5A97 LE R 2.0 motherboard

Cons: died after 3 months... no pre-failure indications... just disappeared from drives available in file explorer and from UEFI control panel on a restart...

Other Thoughts: haven't tried Kingston return process yet... will update review after seeing how tough it is to get it repaired/replaced by Kingston under warranty

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Dusty,
I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. We apologize for the issue experienced with the V300 drive. Our warranty process is fairly simple and it's usually a less than 10 minute phone call. We will just need to verify a couple part numbers off of our label on the drive and our warranty department will verify the warranty based on your date of purchase. If you have not already, please call us at 1-800-435-0640 (USA and Canada only) M - F 6am - 6pm PT and I or another available Technician will assist you.

Thank you for selecting Kingston as your upgrade partner.

1 out of 5 eggsSubpar drive!

This review is from: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: After the performance fiasco and futile try at covering it up, none whatsoever!

Cons: Search the web and decide whether you wish to be taken advantage of, of this bait and switch tactic.

Other Thoughts: Jewel, no need to leave any of your usual company line comments. Damage is done. Kingston has lost credibility. A real shame!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Upgrade

This review is from: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Cheap, fast.

Cons: Need bracket.

Other Thoughts: Wonderful upgrade. I took 5 of these and replaced the hard drives in some 7 year old Dells and now the computers boot Windows in 20 seconds or less. A great way to breathe some life into an old computer.
