4 out of 5 eggsA great SSD but the Kingston SSD Toolbox Software sucks.

This review is from: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I believe the performance and the drive is OK, its doing what it needs to do, be fast and reliable is all I want. That sums it up.

Tested on the laptop that has a SATA III 6Gb/s port I can comment to the max theoretical speeds of the SSD of 450/450MB/s read/write.

So I ran two different types benchmarking software and got two different results. According to Kingston you are only supposed to use ATTO Disk Benchmark v2.47 to get the correct results. I did this and it showed speeds of 440MB/s for both read & write. So speeds are as advertised.

Also my drive came with firmware version 583ABBF0 out of the box. Kingston has the old firmware on their page. 525ABBF0. Make sure you do not downgrade or your royally rimmed. Not sure why they leave the old firmware up on the page, that's a big NO NO!!!

Cons: Finally last but not least I installed the Kingstong SSD Toolbox software, (v1.08) from their website because I wanted to monitor my drives health. I thought it would probably be like the Samsung Magician Software that I had on my 840EVO drive that lets you monitor the drive status, health, etc.

Well so far unlike the Samsung Magician software, the Kingston gives you basic information, health status, things like that. It won't let you upgrade firmware if the drive is in use. You have to boot from another drive in order to update the firmware (downside). There are also no optimization tools or benchmarking tools.

Also, for some reason this darn software keeps on opening up to full screen on every boot of the computer. It doesn't run minimized to task-bar like the Magician software by Samsung. It always runs full screen and you have to close the darn thing which gives you a stupid message box "this software will continue to run in the background" ... seriously? I cannot find it in Windows Startup folder, nor does MSCONFIG show it in the startup routines so I have no idea how the hell this program boots up. I was hoping I could turn the auto start-up to off and just run the program manually when needed, but it's not even in the startup folder nor is it in the MSCONFIG startup, ridiculous.

I cannot find anything on Google or forums about this, so this means I am going to have to uninstall the hardware monitoring software and then reinstall it at a later date if they do ever fix this problem or if I want to check the status of my SSD drive, which is so stupid. I wish I could leave the program installed and let it run in the background minimized or at least turn off auto startup and just run it when needed. So I'm dropping a point for the poor software.

Other Thoughts: Update: 5/5/2015

Just spoke with Kingston customer support. They didn't seem to be quite interested in my question but confirmed with me that the Kingston SSD Software is meant to open up like that at every Windows boot. I mentioned to them that its very annoying and other manufacturers of SSD drives have better software (like Samsung) that have their software run in the background, minimized at every Windows boot and not have it open Window that needs to be closed manually.

The chat rep seemed 'annoyed' but said she would pass the message along to her dev team so hopefully in a next version or two of the software they will change it so it runs minimized in the background. For now, if this bothers you, just don't install the Kingston Toolbox software to avoid the problem.

But that sucks because then you cannot monitor the health or the temperature or the read/writes, S.M.A.R.T., etc, step up your game on the software Kingston. Intel and Samsung and Crucial are doing a much better job.

4 out of 5 eggsBig Upgrade

This review is from: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This make a huge difference from my laptop hdd, I was always frustrating on how my laptop was slow even tho I have an I7 and 8gig of ram, so I decided this was time to go ssd and that one did make a huge improvement.

Cons: It will drain your laptop battery a bit more than a normal HDD because it's basically ON (Full capacity) or Off. If you do some research you'll find that ssd use generally more power. If you play a bit around with the setting you'll be able to get something acceptable.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful

This review is from: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I bought this SSD to replace a junky 500 GB HDD I had in 1 of my laptops. The laptop is so much faster and responsive, boot time went from about 3 minutes from a cold start to about 30 seconds. I've also installed one on my aging desktop to give it a little more speed. Highly recommended!

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Upgrade!

This review is from: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I was looking at buying a new laptop but decided to try an upgrade to an SSD. I've been a computer geek since the early 90's and this is the best upgrade in performance I have ever performed. My laptop went from taking approx. 4 -5 minutes to completely boot to 45 - 50 seconds! This from a complete power off start and includes the delay while the Bios boots. I'm running an HP G50 with an AMD 32 bit dual processor at 1.9 GHZ, Windows 7, SATAII interface and 2 GB Ram. This system is 8 years old and now boots faster than my friends almost new Alienware laptop! Programs start in a snap, no more waiting while the HDD catches up. I'm no longer looking for a new laptop, I'm upgrading this one to 4GB Ram and a new Hi performance battery! HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS UPGRADE!

Cons: None So Far

Other Thoughts: Anyone considering a new laptop should take a look at an SSD. The performance jump is nothing short of amazing!
