5 out of 5 eggsMuch better than expectation

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

Pros: Update from 2 years old HyperX SSD 120GB. WEI changes from 7.8 to 7.9. Surprisingly, boot up and program loading is faster.

Cons: With FW rev. 520, system can not detect the drive sometimes. FW rev. 525 takes care of the issue.

Other Thoughts: Was hesitated to purchase this drive after reading some recent negative reviews about poor performance (from some kind of benchmark testing?). Did not really understand those "bad' reviews. So, I gave it a try. It is surprising fast! I guess the "real life" experience is more meanful to common user like me.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter Now

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

Pros: Should Have Written Sooner

Cons: I guess I'm a Little Dumb

Other Thoughts: Well, I guess I was wrong - I got influenced by other reviewers and my own brain - After talking to Ms Jewel and going through a few tests, I discovered that I was quite wrong about my assessment of this SSD - Previously I have always had good dealings with Kingston Tech Support and that has not changed - as much as I hate to admit I was wrong - ......I was - sorry Kingston - Thanks for your help - actually I have Always gotten superlative help from Kingston Tech Support - guess I'm getting grouchy in.......... my old age........ ;-)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat quality and better than some on speed

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

Pros: I bought this knowing it is a mid-level SSD. Kingston makes good DRAM and I am happy with this SSD. It sped up my boot time from 27 sec with a reg HDD to 14 seconds. Installed with 0 issues and I'm loving it.

Cons: No cons so far.

1 out of 5 eggsVery slow

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

Pros: nice looking

Cons: very low speed

Other Thoughts: only ATTO test will give you the result like what advertised but it's is far different from what in real performance is.

1 out of 5 eggs

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

Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: Kingston switched from using synchronous NAND to asynchronous NAND which saved them money and increased their profits, but it clearly has a detrimental effect on performance.

Other Thoughts: Kingston's own in-house testing with benchmarks other than ATTO clearly show a HUGE, UNACCEPTABLE DROP in Write speeds after switching to asynchronous NAND. They can defend it any way they want to but it's going to take a long time for them to live this down. We own both of the older V100+ and V200 models and they still meet their original performance levels, but i would not recommend the V300 to anyone.

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

Other Thoughts: Don't buy people. I should has stuck with Samsung.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Michael,
I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. The V300 should perform and is advertised as 450MB/s read and write tested with ATTO Benchmark with the drive connected to a native SATAIII port in AHCI mode. If the drive is not performing properly, we are here to help and can troubleshoot with you to see if any settings could be affecting the drive's performance. If the issue is with the drive itself, it can be replaced under warranty. Please call us at 1-800-435-0640 (USA and Canada only) M - F 6am - 6pm PT and I or another available Technician will assist you. Please be sure to have the part in question on hand when you call.

Thank you for selecting Kingston as your upgrade partner.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat price for a Good Drive

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

Pros: 1) Low price for a good Drive. Keep your eyes peeled as the price changes every few days on this card. I actually picked it up for $118 with a promotion.
2) Looks good
3) Backed by Kingston who has been around for years
4) Overall speeds are in the middle of the pack. There are faster Drives and also slower Drives

Cons: In the middle of the pack as far as speeds are concerned.

Other Thoughts: If you get this drive at a low price or on a promotion, it is well worth it. Very stable and I have been very happy with it.
