Faster Revive your computer. With up to 300MB/s sequential read speed, 230MB/s sequential write speed and up to 32K IOPS sustained random 4k read (256GB), SSDNow V200 makes computers more responsive than ever. Boot up is quicker and applications load faster than ever before.
Reliable & Silent 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.
Form Factor SSDNow V200 2.5-inch drive is available in both 7.0mm (64GB & 128GB only) & 9.5mm (256GB) to fit more systems. It uses the latest SATA 6Gb/s interface with backwards compatibility to SATA 3Gb/s.
Desktop Upgrade Kit This solid-state drive comes with a desktop upgrade kit that contains all the accessories needed for a smooth upgrade, including hard drive cloning software and installation guide CD, DVD with Installation Videos, Serial ATA data cable, 4-pin Molex to Serial ATA power adapter cable, and brackets w/screws for 2.5” to 3.5” conversion.

Rating: 5/5A Wonderful Inexpensive Upgrade In Performance
This review is from: Kingston SSDNow V200 Series SV200S3D/256G 2.5" 256GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Desktop upgrade kit)
Pros: Speed - Very fast compared to a platter drive. Package contents - Everything is included in this package, ie: cables, mounting brackets, software. Nothing else is needed. Warranty - Three year warranty is better than most drives. Price - Decent for everything you get with this package.
Cons: There really isn't any cons that I can think of except the last time I checked this item was out of stock. Also, the price went down from what I paid for it, but I still got a great deal with all things considered.
Other Thoughts: I bought this drive and installed it as my main boot device in my rig, which was rather easy. To this point, I haven’t used the software so I can't honestly say if it's good or not. I installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64 on this drive, and formatted and partitioned the drive during the OS installation without any hitches. So far, the performance is blowing me away. The time it takes for my rig to boot up has been more than cut in half, and applications launch and run so much more quickly. I've been working with PCs for more than 15 years, and have performed every hardware/software upgrade imaginable. I must honestly say that moving to an SSD drive from a platter drive is the one upgrade that has given me the most pay back performance wise. Because of the value and performance I would recommend with confidence purchasing this kit to anyone. Then install your OS on this drive and use a larger, less expensive platter drive for your data. ie: movies, music, etc.
