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

Pros: Works great, easy setup, opening large folders/files is much faster now.

Cons: Doesn't boot OS magically fast in my experience but still an improvement.

Other Thoughts: Helps to set BIOS to AHCI before you start.

1 out of 5 eggsThis drive barely counts as an SSD

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

Pros: It is Silent, which is nice, and it is faster than any 7200rpm drive, but not by much.

Cons: The point of buying an SSD is that you want those crazy fast speeds, and this drive doesn't cut it. I didn't know there was an entire scandal behind this drive (SSDnow V300) But there is! Google it.

Spend 5 more bucks and get a SanDisk or Crucial Drive.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD

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

Pros: I read some reviews that said this thing was slow. This is not the case in my experience. Windows 7 boots and you can open chrome 5 seconds after the BIOS splash scree (FX-8320.) It's fast enough to score a perfect 7.9 on the Windows experience system rating, for those who care about numbers. I see myself getting a second one for Skyrim and BF4. I recommend you have a dual drive setup with a SSD and a TB drive for programs and documents.

Cons: Visual studio professional took 30 minutes to install :(
I never knew how little 120 GB's was.

5 out of 5 eggsGood device

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

Pros: Solid devices. Brought a couple old PCs back to life.

Cons: If the drives need a firmware update, you will not be able to flash it if your hard driver controller is not AHCI compliant. Called Kingston and they said the update was not applicable to XP so didn't worry about it on the one PC that had the older controller though it's still annoying that I can't update it without moving it to another PC.

Other Thoughts: Would definitely buy Kingston again.

4 out of 5 eggsNot the fastest, but it's still nice

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

Pros: - Cheap
- Good boot drive for relatively light use

Cons: none for the price

Other Thoughts: Bought this with full knowledge of the hardware swap resulting in lesser performance than previously, but I got it on sale for $50, which is hard to beat. I use it as a boot drive for windows and commonly used programs. (Photoshop, Maya, Blender, Word, ect) I was at the very end of my PC budget and really wanted an SSD before I installed Windows. This fit the price and I'm happy with the performance.

5 out of 5 eggsNot bad at all :D

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

Pros: Fast
Cheap
Reliable
Cool

Cons: could be faster

Other Thoughts: Granted these drives are not the fastest horses on the track, they do get the job done:), I have mine connected to an older sata 2 board and going from a standard HDD to this, is like night and day :) Don't get discouraged about the asynchronous NAND. I use mine as a primary boot drive. I have it linked with a WD Blue EZEX. I still get 180MB transfer rates between the two.. The V300 is an excellent drive when used as a boot drive. Kingston also has an EXCELLENT RMA service too.

5 out of 5 eggsWicked Fast and Linux Approved

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

Pros: This SSD in Conjunction with a SYBA SI-PEX40065 PCI-Express x1 has drastically improved the over all experience of my Aging 2009 built machine.

Machine would Drag prior when doing even simple tasks doe to a Major IO bottleneck (IDE OS Drive).

With the SSD for my OS drive (Linux Mint) it flies in comparison. Operations that took Minutes prior now take a few seconds (system booting, extracting a movie from rar files and so forth).

Went with this one because of the price. It was my first SSD so I didn't want to invest to much when initially trying things out. But I would not hesitate on my next purchase, thoroughly hooked on the performance. Truly brought my Aging system back to life.

If you are debating scrapping an Older system this is something you should consider. Other than Maxing out Ram, this SSD is a HUGE performance boost.

Thank you Kingston !!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If I had it to do over again I probably would go with a larger storage capacity. This is Plenty big for my OS, but I quickly got spoiled by the speed and would like to do other things with it as well...

5 out of 5 eggsInaccurate read/write specs

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

Pros: FAST

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: So the specs say this drive does 450MB/s read and write. I connected it to an LSI 9211-8i HBA and its benchmarking at 525MB/s read and write. This HBA doesn't have cache and its in JBOD mode so I'm assuming its the drive getting these numbers, unless its somehow because its an LSI card and this drive uses a controller built by LSI. Not sure what's up with the listed specs but this speed for 120GB for this price is pretty ridiculous.
