5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Low cost, paid less than .80/gb AFTER REBATE. Almost 1 year old and still running fine. Much faster than the 640 gb WD black drive it replaced.

Cons: Speed is not as good as SSD models in the similar price class. Wish I had bought 2 of them when the prices were low.

Other Thoughts: Hard to complain about the speed when many of the SSD competitors have horrible reliability issues.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid and Consistent

Pros: - Good performance.
- Stable

Been running it for almost a year... so this is from a used drive
Uncompressed data benchmarks (AS SSD)
-187 MB/s Read, 182 MB/s Write (sequential)
- 13MB/s Read, 38MB/s write (4k random)

Compressed data is pretty much the same performance.

Cons: - no NCQ so random reads/writes are slower, however still MUCH faster than a platter HDD

Other Thoughts: Got it for $80. Wish I would have bought 2! There are probably better performing drives now for the same price.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I've owned this SSD for about 7 months now. Like any SSD, the V+100 makes windows load times, shutdowns, program load times, etc. all noticeably much quicker than HDDs.

What I especially like about this SSD is that unlike many other SSDs that lose significant amounts of speed after some time has passed, and after getting filled up with data, this particular SSD does not suffer from that phenomenon. I've compared performance using CrystalDiskMark on Day 1 of its installation, to its performance now 7 months later and it only lost a bit of sequential read and write performance, and actually *improved* performance in some of the random read/write tests. Being able to increase performance where it counts 7 months later - AND with 2.5x more data on the drive - is impressive for an SSD.

Cons: compared to other drives in same price range, this is not going to win any speed races. but i don't think that's too big a compromise considering a lot of drives lose their performance edge over time and after getting filled up.

Other Thoughts: i got mine with a MIR so I think at closer to 100 dollars this is a great buy, but closer to 150 and i'm not as sure...

3 out of 5 eggsDon't believe the rebate

Pros: I have had this drive for almost 6 months and it works fast, quiet, and flawlessly.

Cons: Don't count on getting your rebate. I have called Kingston several times and I always get told "The checks in the mail, we will cancel that one and send you another one," If not for the bad service with the $50 rebate I would have given a 5 egg rating. Will not buy any more Kingston products.

5 out of 5 eggs8 months of ownership, no issues.

Pros: After 8 months of daily use I have not had any issues with this drive at all. Because this was so fast/silent I've purchased a larger Kingston SSD and moved it between computers which required re-installing Windows a few times. No compatibility or degredation problems.

Cons: Sometimes the Windows7 install would hang, it has never done that before without drives (SATA/SAS/SSD). Popping out the DVD and re-inserting would continue the install. Strange.

1 out of 5 eggsDecent enough - beware Kingston rebates

Pros: Amazingly quick startup/shutdown times. Doing a full reboot takes approximately 30 seconds.

Cons: Price is extreme for small gain in performance. Remember to buy an adapter if you're putting this into a desktop. This company does not honor rebates - and without rebates, this item is overpriced for what it is.

Would NOT buy again from this company even at the discounted price.

Other Thoughts: It seems Kingston doesn't honor rebates unless they know you personally and have it notarized by Isaac Newton. I honored everything and they still rejected my application and wouldn't budge.

I'll never buy another Kingston product with a rebate again. It's truly a hoax.

5 out of 5 eggsFirst SSD = Happy

Pros: Fast
Got for basically $1 - 1gig

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Sata II not Sata III, but knew that going in, so is no big deal, just be aware that you can buy a similar sized sata III SSD for just a few bucks more now.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great budget SSD. Not as fast as the Intel 320 or other SATA 3Gbps SSDs, but still plenty fast and a big improvement over HDD. Drive has very aggressive OS-independent garbage collection, which makes it a good choice if you intend to use it with an OS that doesn't support TRIM, such as Windows XP. Of course, it does support TRIM as well if you plan to use it with a more modern OS. For longevity of the drive you're better off using TRIM as possible.

Cons: Andreas review hit the major cons I think. The stamped steel shell makes this quite a bit heavier than most SSDs, which use an aluminum case. Not a big deal for most people, Kingston probably did it to cut down on costs, but something to keep in mind if you're considering an SSD for a smaller/lighter laptop. Also the V+100 does not appear to support NCQ, which might hurt performance a bit during heavy multitasking, but probably isn't an issue unless you had planned to use the drive in a server with high queue depth workloads or something like that; and obviously that's not what this drive is designed for. For a consumer drive the lack of NCQ isn't a deal-breaker IMO, especially at this price point.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Value SSD

Pros: If you are still using a mechanical drive and you want an cheap ssd this is your best pick. The value per GB is better than any ssd (without the rebate). With the rebate this thing is a no brainer to buy. 2.5x faster than my 7200 mechanical drives in raid.

Cons: Drive is slower than most ssd. but this thing will still run circles around any mechanical drive. The performance difference between this and a faster ssd is not really noticeable. rebate does take a while, took me a couple months to get. The check came as a postcard. Everyone who handled it could just look and know it was a $50 check since it wasn't in an envelope or covered up in any way. I can't believe it actually got to me without someone pocketing it and trying to cash it themselves. BTW disable disk defragmentor with your ssd.

Other Thoughts: How to install SSD
(1) Check the board is in AHCI mode
(2) Check if S1 or S3 sleep are supported in bios,
(3) Check ACPI 2.0 is in bios and enabled
(4) Let win7 installer create and format the partition
(5)Turn Off Hibernation File: Type cmd in search, right click cmd symbol that comes up and choose "run as administrator". Type “powercfg -h off” and press enter.
(6)if you have >4gb ram. lower page file to 500mb.
(7)Turn off drive indexing: Right click all drives and uncheck drive indexing, click apply
(8) Set the power state to high performance and set the machine to never sleep, HDD power down to OFF (off is before 1 minute).
(9)Disable SuperFetch: Type regedit in search, click on symbol then go HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Session Manager\Memory Management\PrefetchPerameters right click EnableSuperfetch hit modify and change to 0 and hit OK.
(11) Disable SuperFetch in services: Go to Control Panel select Administrative Tools\Services double click S

1 out of 5 eggsService did not exceed expectations

Pros: Decently fast (for the price), reliable, cheap with $50 rebate.

Cons: Wish the customer service was better.

Other Thoughts: I probably will get bunch of unhelpful votes here. I missed postmark date for the rebate by 1 day. It was my fault, no doubt about it. So I wrote a nice paragraph to go with the letter, asking for an exception since I have been a Kingston customer (Computer memory, USB jump drives, memory cards) for 8 years. Nope, not going to happen. While that happened to me with Patriot memory, and their customer service was great at responding after an e-mail. They made an exception for me and I was a happy camper. Since then I started going with this newer company because they really gave me the confidence in that way. I wish Kingston would do the same.
