5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

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

Pros: Boots faster than my monitor can turn on. This SSD is incredible.
Great Price for size.
I bought it for my gaming PC as a boot and program disk and will probably buy a second larger one for other storage needs.

Cons: It feels cheap. Granted I don't regularly take it out and handle it but the plastic on it feels thin and pliable.
I'd like to see an aluminum casing on it or something denser at least but it doesn't take away from performance so I don't really care all that much.

Other Thoughts: It's soooper light. I'm considering picking up a larger capacity to throw into my laptop.

2 out of 5 eggsone of my least favorite purchase

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

Pros: its a ssd. i like the price, so why not, right?

Cons: wrong! not as nearly as fast as i thought it should be. i am running win7 ultimate. "free version" window logo doesn't seems to flash before my eyes like i expected. in fact doeskin seem any faster than computers at my school. no software to trim it either. found that out recently when i got my 1st virus on my rig. overwrote the old os file got it working again, but still trim program would be nice

Other Thoughts: spend the money to get a better product

4 out of 5 eggsGreat speed for the price

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

Pros: Bought 2 and put into RAID 0. BLAZING fast write speeds. Power button to desktop in 5-7 seconds.

Cons: Read speeds same as a single drive. (46.41 MB/s random) Expected but still a bummer.

4 out of 5 eggsFirst Build SSD

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

Pros: -SSD, boots in seconds

Cons: -Don't know if OS is currupted, but I got lots of error and BSoD as I put it as first drive.
-Don't know what happened but in windows experience, it got 7.7 and after OC got 7.2 ... Meanwhile it's speed decreased.

5 out of 5 eggsbad drive - firmware issues

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

Pros: none

Cons: They filter comments, last 2 posts were deleted. There is many others with same issue of the SSDtoolbox not seeing drive on my same PC where it sees my hyperx drive. This drive freezes often or gets slow speeds. Will cause "delayed write failures" or "ntsf" errors, so the drive is just bad DOA.

Other Thoughts: I tried to do RMA but room mate tossed the box while I was working on it and now I am stuck with a drive I cant use. WORST purchase on newegg so far.

1 out of 5 eggsStay away from this drive!

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

Pros: Fast, like any other SSD.

Cons: Six out of ten failed in one year. Other colleagues of mine have experienced similar results. But what really gives this the most negative review is that Kingston warranty service sucks...if it exists at all, I can't reach anyone helpful.

3 out of 5 eggsBug with newer firmware.

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

Pros: The drive is fine so far.

Cons: Another reviewer mentions a bug with the drive. I'm running into that same bug now. The firmware the drive is on is 600ABBF0 and the site only has a previous firmware for download. The drive is fine on a cold start but on a reboot the drive not recognized.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

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

Pros: This is by far the best deal per dollar for a SSD. You can take an older mediocre system and install one of these drives and have it perform like a newer generation system that still has a mechanical drive. I have ordered and installed easily over a dozen of these drives without issue. Boot times are typically between 4-12 seconds depending on hardware and configuration.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: There are better performance drives for sure. Even PCI SSD that are incredibly fast. Unless you are doing a lot of file transfers you probably will not see the difference unless you time the comparisons with a stop watch. The only other factor is that some of the higher end SSD's have a 5 year warranty versus 3 years with this particular drive.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive, good performance

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

Pros: Great drive for the price and a good entry point into SSD drives. Cheap and fast as a boot drive, got it on sale and couldn't be happier with the purchase.

Cons: None, performs well.
