Kingston SSDNow V300
This review is from: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S3D7/480G 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Desktop Bundle Kit - Retail
Pros: The Kingston SSDNow V300 seems to have been running excellently for two days now (Monday morning) after installation on Saturday afternoon. Its Sata3 performance resulted in a Windows Experience rating of 7.9 (up from a dismal 5.9 with my previous Sata2 drive). Installation went flawlessly, and I'm not really sure the provided drivers were necessary for Windows 7. It did require some engineering to fit this 2.5" drive into a standard 4" drive bay - even with the included adapter plate. It would probably work fine in an old 1.4MB floppy drive bay if your case still has one.
Cons: The Acronis True Image HD (drive cloning) software bundled with the SSD desktop upgrade kit may
Other Thoughts: The decision to bundle Acronis with this drive was possibly made by some marketting drone, and shouldn't reflect on Kingston. Other than the stated problems with Acronis, this drive is NICE!
