5 out of 5 eggsGreat cheap SSDs

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

Pros: Really fast. Not the fastest, but great speed for this price range. I have 3 of these. 2 120GB and 1 240GB. Each system I installed them to saw dramatic speed increases. All load into windows in under 10 seconds (my main rig is 7-8 seconds). Programs run much snappier. Any games you choose to install on it will load fast too.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: An SSD upgrade at these prices is a no brainer.

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad - minor step forward

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

Pros: Not a bad little drive - pretty quick and fair space for the price.

Cons: No mounting hardware included for 3.5" bay applications

Other Thoughts: Just a tiny bit faster than my old Intel 160 gb SSD - not worth upgrading, but this was for a new build for the in-laws.

2 out of 5 eggsBeware. Backup your data.

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

Pros: Fast. Small.

Cons: Failed after 10 months. Used in laptop with 8.1. Unrecognized in bios. Lost all my data. Unfortunately I expected this. If reliability is more important than speed look elsewhere.

5 out of 5 eggsGood drive

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

Pros: Good drive. Faster than IDE.

Cons: None that I can see so far.

Other Thoughts: Firmware can't be upgraded unless drive is hooked up directly to a SATA connector. USB adapter won't work for upgrading firmware.

1 out of 5 eggs

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

Pros: Nice price.

Cons: This drive worked just fine when first installed. I have one in 3 systems. However, after a few months time, the drive goes off-line, usually for 10 to 30 seconds. Now the problem has grown to the point where the system crashes or does not always boot.

Other Thoughts: For your own well being, DO NOT BUY THIS DRIVE.
