5 out of 5 eggsVery Fast, Very Pleased!

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

Pros: Easy to install. Power from your PSU and a SATA 6bps cord and that's it.

Cons: No instructions after the product is installed. With my MSI Z77a-G45 Motherboard I was lucky after the install it was in ADHI mode already. It wasn't fun trying to find out this information. There should be instructions on the first few steps instead of Googling links and videos.

Other Thoughts: Compared to a regular Western Digital 500G HDD it took almost 3 minutes for Windows to boot completely up.

Now it takes Windows a total of 7 seconds to boot (Windows 7/64).

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Budget SSD for everyone

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

Pros: -Its a SSD
-3 year warranty
-it is 7MM thick so it can fit into slim laptops/ultrabooks but comes with a spacer so it can fit in 9MM slots if your worried about the extra space.
-its 240 GB SSD for only $100
-1 million hours MTBF (mean time between failure) - for home users, this is more than the expected life of your whole computer.

Cons: -You know you are not buying the fastest SSD so its slightly lower speed is not a con.
-I only had one of these drives arrive DOA out of about 25 or so that I installed so far.

Other Thoughts: This is a great budget SSD. Compared to a mechanical hard drive, any SSD feels super fast. You will not be able to tell the difference between this budget SSD and a Samsung 850 Pro in the real world, only in benchmarks. (Rapid Mode, of course, is different) Unless you want to have bragging rights that you have this part or that part, just upgrading from a mechanical to ANY CURRENT GENERATION SSD, you are going to be getting pretty much the fastest performance you can FEEL. Yes, the best SSDs can give you 550MBps and 100,000 IOPS while this one is only 450 MBps and 85k read / 45k write but 99% of all people will not notice the difference (seriously, the real world difference is only a few seconds under the Perfect conditions. Most of the time, the difference is practically nothing). Spend the extra money that you save to get you more RAM!!

If your on a budget and want a super-effective upgrade to your computer, this is the one to buy.

Don't forget to buy a 2.5' to 3.5' adapter (buy a metal one, plastic sucks) if it is going into a desktop, if you need it.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks OK for the Price

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

Pros: It's not the fastest as can be seen in plenty of other reviews. It's not terribly slow either considering I paid $85 for it. I've owned faster (Intel 520) but I'm not disappointed.

Installed in a Mid 2012 13" MBP. 212 MB/s writes and 463 MB/s reads in OS X 10.10.1 using BlackMagic. Swapped drives and restored from time machine backup, haven't done any kind of tweaking so those are out of the box speeds.

Cons: None, I docked an egg just because the advertised performance isn't the same as what you get. That doesn't mean it's unacceptable performance, just that Kingston should put what you're getting on the tin, not some hyped inaccurate specs.

Other Thoughts: I'd recommend this SSD for sub-$100 and 240GB, it's really not bad performance wise. We shall see how well it holds up.

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad, not wow!

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

Pros: Came packaged well and worked as soon as I plugged it in! This isn't the fastest thing in the world and I kind of wish I just threw the extra $40 and money down on an Evo-850.

With that said this isn't a bad SSD at all! For an everyday home/office user this thing is perfect!

Cons: Speed.

5 out of 5 eggsNice SSD

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

Pros: Easy install. Fast drive

Cons: None except maybe size

Other Thoughts: I probably own a couple of these but picked up another one for my son's Gaming Rig Christmas present. It installed the OS without issues and seems to be running strong. I will not hesitate to buy more
