5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

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

Pros: Love the SSDs. They are fast and reliable.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I'll beginning to phase out my mechanical HDD Drives with SSDs in all my machines. Re-use the HDDs as paper weights or just to backup less important stuff.

4 out of 5 eggsSSD V300 240 gig drive

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

Pros: this thing is fast and definitely 100% quietter than the 2 striped drives that I was using.

Cons: the 1st drive was bad, the PC and windows wouldnt recognized it. ( I was worried that it was the PC) Kingston RMA'd it and sent a new one, had to give a credit card hold to do a cross shipment. got the new one in 3 days. The new drive was seen by the SATA Ver2 raid controller on the 1st boot up

Other Thoughts: Don't waste your money on the Acronis software that was recommended in an earlier review. after buying it, and paying more for an upgrade, it still didn't work (my stripped drive was a win7 dynamic disk). luckily it was refunded one from acronis and 1 from newegg. I was able to use windows backup with a system image/recovery disk on a spare hard drive, then restored the data to the SSD. booted from the recovery CD, and used the back up from the spare hard. now I cant even tell I installed the SSD
except for the blazing speed and a lot less noise.

4 out of 5 eggsGraduation gift for my brother!

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

Pros: Outstanding performance delivered, and the price seems reasonable than it was a while back. I once bought an Intel 180GB for a little over $210.00

Cons: At least three months of ownership, still no flaws - at least for now.

Other Thoughts: My brother just graduated from LU Online basically, so we all know by now, having a flexible SSD with a flexible amount of storage is the key to staying on top of business and education that keeps coming at us. Kingston SSD's would be one of many graduation gifts to consider.

Pros: It's an SSD

Cons: Not exactly as advertised as others have said, but for the deal i got it doesn't affect my rating.

Other Thoughts: Bought 2 of these for a combined total of 160$ which i thought was a great deal, coming from HDD's these things are awesome.

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.
