1 out of 5 eggsThe Company That Was!

This review is from: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Might be cheap, but you get what you pay for! I have used kingston brand for years, they used to be great!

Cons: So, now, if you have a product, and you dont KEEP the receipt, and it dies, they will send you another, but shorten your warranty to 60 days. So you loose your warranty.

Other Thoughts: Lots of kingston parts have come across my desk. Lots of other have too, but I have never had the misfortune of dealing with a company who have NO regard for the customer. I would much rather deal with a company that stood by the customer, and the product, These people fall short!

5 out of 5 eggsOver a year, Zero issues

This review is from: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I've had this hard drive over a year now, running Windows 8 as the main drive for the entire time. I read/write to it plenty, and it never has any issues. Never any file loss, never OS fails, etc. I understand it will fail one day, but I don't see it as soon. Kingston makes a good product.

Cons: N/A

1 out of 5 eggsSlow

This review is from: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: An SSD

Cons: Super slow

Other Thoughts: I tried my luck to see if I can hit a unit with synchronous memory for a reasonable price, and I missed the Newegg warranty information that this product comes with "replacement only" 30 days warranty. I got the slow asynch type, which is still faster than HDD, but for this price I could have gotten way better drive with the same capacity like Crucial MX100, PNY 8XLR, Adata SP920SS, etc. that would at least use synchronous ic's and beat the Kingston V300 SSD to the ground performance wise.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing!

This review is from: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This has been an amazing choice! I was getting frustrated with having 20 to 30 second startups on boot. With this drive installed, that has drastically been reduced to a mere 5 to 10 seconds! I'm never going back!

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsGood SSD

This review is from: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Sped up both computers I installed these on (bought two). No issues after 3 weeks.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I used acronis true image to capture from the old hard drive. Seamless... hardware and Acronis recognized all and its good!

1 out of 5 eggsFollow up Review

This review is from: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: RMA process was fairly efficient with quick turnaround.

Cons: Recd replacement drive after 1st one died after ~ 3 mos. Did a few benchmark test and practice file transfers. This thing is slower than my 2 TB 5200 RPM NAS drive (35MB/s). Btw, the Samsung 840 drive that I replaced it with averages 468MB/s...same test.
So after getting drive on sale for $130 and then paying $15 to ship defective drive back, I have a slower than mechanical, unreliable SSD. Last Kingston product I will ever buy! I wouldn't waste my time with this drive at any price.

Other con...no way to get my money back.

Other Thoughts: Haven't had many computer products that I was completely dissatisfied with...this goes to the top of the list.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Earl,
I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. We apologize for the issue with your replacement V300.

We are here to help and can troubleshoot with you to determine what is causing the issue and work towards the resolution. 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.

1 out of 5 eggsSlowest 240GB SSD I Have Used

This review is from: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: It is small and doesn't smell bad. Perfect choice when a mechanical hard drive is too fast for you.

Cons: Slower than the mechanical hard drives on the same computer.

Other Thoughts: Based on my personal experience with this SSD I can say the manufacturer's claimed transfer speeds are pure fantasy.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. We apologize for the issue experienced with the V300 SSD. Although this drive is an entry level SSD, it should perform 10X faster than a standard 7200RPM HDD as indicated in our specifications, seen here: http://www.kingston.com/datasheets/sv300s3_us.pdf . We stand by all our products and can work with you to resolve this issue. If needed the drive can be replaced under it's three year warranty. 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.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Drives!

This review is from: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Works great out of the box. Got it on sale for less than $100 buckaroos! Installed win7 64bit Pro in less than 10 minutes on an i5 laptop.Super, super fast! Would recommend! This one has been humming away in a laptop with daily use for 2 months now.

Cons: No issues whatsoever.

Other Thoughts: Drop the price again, and I'll pick up a few more! Other people are complaining and giving low rating about the "speed issue" due to the AS Nand Chips utilized. Well, yes my hyperX is faster, and so is my crucial M4, according to benchmarks; but can I tell that without a chart? Nope. They all work flawlessly and are zippy fast! Only speed issue I ever has was with a couple of OCZ's, but to be fair those were sata II.
