1 out of 5 eggsVery Fast, but didn't last long.

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

Pros: Purchased on 11-DEC-2014.
Shipped fast.
Very fast SSD Drive.
Worked really well for 2-2.5 months.

Cons: It started with random freezing of the system with the HDD light Bright and Steady on. Reset produced "drive not found" on boot. Had to power down to get it to come back.
Adjusted some settings, did not resolve the issue.
Drive continued to randomly lock up the system.
Drive failed completely on 7-MAR-2015.
BIOS on multiple systems will not recognize the drive.
Set up two old Samsung Drives in RAID0 to get the system back up and make sure it was not the Motherboard or System. System functions properly with different SSD Drives in it. Tried again to see if BIOS would recognize the Kingston, it did not. It's dead.

Other Thoughts: I assumed Kingston was a good, brand name. I only stick with good, brand names.. Kingston was among those.

This is my first failure for a kingston product. I understand No Company can put out products with a 0% failure rate.

I will not hold it against them if the issue is resolved quickly.

5 out of 5 eggsAffordable and High quality

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

Pros: This SSD is great! I bought the 120GB version a couple of weeks before this one and they are both working perfectly. Loaded Windows quickly and easily. Boot is super fast.

Cons: Not really a con, but, is there any reason why this 240GB would boot faster than my 120GB? I noticed a drastic boot time difference between the two. the 120GB is in a machine with an i7 and this one with an i3. The difference here being that the i3 has a much nicer board.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy install in macbook pro unibody

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

Pros: Easily installed in a macbook pro mid-2010 15". Has a pretty slim form factor for a 2.5" drive. Everything is running much faster now that I have moved my OS over to this drive.

Cons: None Yet.

Other Thoughts: Second Kingston SSD i have upgraded a macbook with... no issues yet.

3 out of 5 eggsGood at first

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

Pros: Fast. Kingston Brand. 3 Year warranty.

Cons: After a few months of use as a main drive, it randomly freezes the computer. Updated drivers, etc.. did all the adjustments to get it to stop, but it still freezes the system randomly. Removed it and put in the old Samsung 128Gb it replaced, and the freezing is gone, so I know it is this Kingston Drive..

Other Thoughts: I will try completely reformatting it and using it again when I have a chance to have a down system for a day or two (and feel like going through all the junk associated with re-installing Win7, etc.)

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Gonzo1970,
We're sorry for the inconsistent performance experienced with the V300 drive. If wiping and reinstalling windows does not make a difference, please contact us so we will be able to work with you on a resolution. If needed, the drive can be replaced under it's five year warranty.

Thank you for using the V300,
-Jewel, Kingston US Technical Support

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

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

Pros: Fast
Cheap
Easy Setup
Reliable

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Granted these aren't the fastest horse on the track, but they are a great "beginner" SSD. Anyone who wants their computer to boot up and launch programs faster This is the drive to get. Pair it up with a standard HDD and your good to go. I wouldn't get too caught up in the asynchronous nand hype. The drive will boot up and launch programs just as fast as their synchronous ciblings

5 out of 5 eggsShocked!

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

Pros: Very, very fast, Windows boots instantly, Software installs instantly, overall computer runs faster than I imagined.

Cons: No mounting bracket, No SATA cable, 220GBs, Weird square frame you have to tape to the face of the drive which I think is to protect the Kingston sticker on the face of the drive, very poor instructions or documentation, too expensive.

Other Thoughts: I just can't believe I used to use a computer or play games on a computer without a SSD drive. This SSD drive has made my computer into a gaming powerhouse beast! Before with my 7200RPM drive I could only play my favorite games like Battlefield 4 and Arma III in Low, Mid to very few high settings and I had constant performance issues with lighting effects. Now with this SSD drive I can run all my games in Ultra with all settings on high or ultra with no performance lag at all! It's incredible!

My specs:
AMD FX 6300
MSI 970A-G46
MSI R9 270X 2GB
Kingston 8GB DDR3-1600
Kingston 240GB SSD
