Kingston's new SSDNow V+180 in the 1.8-inch form factor is designed to address the Enterprise, SMB & Consumer needs regarding ultraportable notebooks, sub-notebooks, tablet PC's and Netbook upgrades currently utilizing the 1.8 inch hard disk drive form factor.

SSDNow drives are a perfect replacement for hard drives resulting in faster, more reliable performance and increased durability and battery life. Making this change will improve efficiency in a wide range of tasks, from booting up to running the most robust operating system tasks and demanding applications. You’ll never get slowed down again by an antivirus scan while on an important meeting. Other benefits include reduced power usage, less noise and less heat generation.

  • newegg SSD Storage Technology Unlike traditional hard disk drives, SSDs have no moving parts, resulting in a quiet, cool, highly reliable storage solution that also offers faster application loading and system responsiveness. And for laptops and netbooks, the lower power needs of SSD’s translate to extended battery life. Higher performance with more durability means you can be truly mobile with confidence.
  • newegg TRIM Support The Kingston SSDNow V+180 offers TRIM support than can be enabled in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. Designed to maintain the performance of SSD at an optimal level over the lifetime of the drive, TRIM functions by actively deleting invalid data from the SSD’s memory cells to ensure that write operations perform at full speed. Since a memory block must be erased before it can be re-programmed, TRIM improves performance by pro-actively erasing pages containing invalid data, allowing the SSD to write new data without first having to perform a time-consuming erase command.
  • newegg Highly effective Garbage Collection For those operating systems not supporting TRIM, The Kingston SSDNow V+180 solid-state drive features highly effective Garbage Collection to ensure maximum performance over time.

5 out of 5 eggsfast and easy to install

Pros: very fast, cloning the drive was easy once I had the right cable

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Most USB to SATA adapters, with a SATA to microSATA cable will not recognize the drive. This is a problem with the cable(s) and not the drive. I got an eSATA to microSATA cable (with separate USB pigtail to power the drive) and the computer (Lenovo T400s) recognized the drive immediately. Cloning was fast and once installed the new SSD is working perfectly.

5 out of 5 eggsTwelve months running, not a single prob…

Coming Soon!

Pros: Lightning fast. Zero noise and no heat.

Cons: Would have hoped for the price to drop by the time that I bought the fourth one, but it didn't.

Other Thoughts: I bought four of these (two for each of our HP HDX laptops). OS on one, and EVERYTHING else on D.

Drivers for SSD's on an HDX is a b*.*. and HP doesn’t like it when you replace their "state of the art drives" in their ten thousand dollar laptops, so no help from them (who would have thought).

I gave these drives a five for the simple reason that they’ve been working for a year (four drives, two shifts per day) and I've never had a single issue with any of them. Isn't that what you want in a fast drive?

Newegg is Newegg, so the price was the best you could find, and the delivery was as quick as what you could hope for. Isn't that what you want in a retailer?

Vid link shows power on to browser in less than a minute. HDX stock was four minutes! I know it doesn't mean much in and of itself to boot so much faster, but darn I appreciate not having to wait for the other three minutes...
