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.

5 out of 5 eggsGood and Cheap

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

Pros: Wanted an SSD for STEAM only apps and games, decided on this drive as it was CHEAP! 120gb's for STEAM only is enough for me and allows quick game loads.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Thank goodness ssd's have come way down in price!

3 out of 5 eggsNot a fan of kingston SSD

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

Pros: ultra fast, easy to use, great price.

Cons: I've had 2 Kingston SSD's and RMA'd one when the clip broke in the back and the other is now dying after about 3 years of very lite use.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for an older computer

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

Pros: Great speed addition to my Core 2 Duo E7500. Easy to work with and install, even with old hardware.

Cons: M/B too old to take full advantage of the drive, not the drive's fault. Needs a 3.5 to 2.5 adapter for my case, again, not the drive's fault.

120 GB too small, filled up real fast, even with a 1TB drive for storage. My fault.

Other Thoughts: Older Gigabyte M/B, doesn't meet the drive's full speed requirements. It's still faster than anything else in the computer. 20 second startup. I could go get a sandwich before. Has a problem at first, the computer would slow to a crawl and stop after a clean install with Win7 Pro. I thought it was the lack of driver compatibility with my M/B. Turned out to be a Windows installation problem. Reinstalled Win7 and everything is great now. Saving up for a bigger SSD.

5 out of 5 eggsSmokin' fast

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

Pros: Like most SSDs these days, it's smokin' fast, runs cool, and uses almost no power.

Cons: Not really specific to this drive; SSDs are still expensive per GB, but silicon is dirt cheap. Harrumph.

1 out of 5 eggsWill not work with Dell e6320, e6410

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

Pros: None - was excellent until recent firmware change.

Cons: Will not work with Dell e6320, e6410 and possible other Dell Latitudes. Contacted Kingston support. The current firmware 600ABBF0 has a bug and it cannot be downgraded. Their support website only has 5xxxxxx firmware.

Other Thoughts: Will boot but not recognized on restart. Cold start works every time. Verified with IRRT, ATA, and AHCI modes in the bios. Will be returning 3 of these to Newegg. I have bought ~50 or more in the last couple of years without any issues.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. We apologize for the issue experienced with the V300 drives. We are currently investigating this issue and working towards a resolution. We ship our V300 drives with the latest firmware that is validated for that build revision. We can only post the latest firmware that is validated for ALL build revisions to avoid any complications for those with older revisions. The firmware updater tool is not built to downgrade firmware and there is no guarantee that will resolve the issue as it is still under investigation. For any further questions or concerns, 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.
