4 out of 5 eggsDecent price for a decent SSD

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

Pros: Its cheap, the speed is better than a traditional magnetic disk drive.

Cons: The speed isn't up to par with other SSDs out there but then again you aren't paying a premium for the speed like you would with other drives

5 out of 5 eggsgreat drive for under $100.

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

Pros: fast and price right onsale

Cons: does not come with 2.5 to 3.5 in adapter need to mount it correctly in MOST desktops.The OCZ does come with it.

Other Thoughts: makes a pentium4 as fast or faster then many newer pc's as long as it has a SATA connection

5 out of 5 eggsAs expected

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

Pros: A good HDD goes unnoticed. I'm not terribly interested in the elaborate benchmarking of the drive. I upgraded from a 7200 RPM drive expecting the PC to be more responsive and it did just that. The most noticeable performance boost was playing late-game turns in Civilization 5 with a full map.

Cons: Like I said, the drive goes unnoticed so I guess there aren't any cons.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat/cheap

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

Pros: Great for the price. Solid, has held up for years no problems. Such a significant jump from HDD

Cons: Not the fastest. For a bit extra $$ can have faster. The age old dilemma with PC components....'Well for $XX more....' Got to draw the line somewhere, I did, and am very happy.

4 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: Price - paid $94.99 for 240 GB.

Cons: None at this time

Other Thoughts: This is my first SSD, so I have nothing to compare this to. Functional for me and, coming from HDDs, this is blazing fast. Kingston is a known name, so it can't be terrible.

4 out of 5 eggsNot reaching advertised speeds

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

Pros: Low power consumption, price per performance, looks to be reliable so far with all the workload it's currently going through.

Cons: Definitely not reaching advertised speeds. Please read other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: I bought this drive on sale from another source and price for performance is OK. But the advertised 450MB/s read/write speeds are definitely not accurate. I'm peaking 225MB/s read speed for 10MB files benchmark and 210MB/s write speed, running Ubuntu 14.04. I found an article later on talking about Kingston using slower NAND chips, hence the price drop and of course performance hit.

Bottom line, it's still a good value for the money, but you won't get the advertised numbers unless you're lucky enough to get one of the older drives. Just Google "An Update to Kingston SSDNow V300: A Switch to Slower Micron NAND" and read through.

5 out of 5 eggsKingston 240gig SSD Internal

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

Pros: It is a 240gig SSD drive formated out at like 229.5gig. I am satified. This is my second SSD Kingston they work pretty well, speed is great. I do not store videos on the SSD for deletion of them is haard on the SSD drive. I do store them on a seprate partation on a SATA drive

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Seller acted properly on sale. Shipping was on time for free ground. Would I recommend? Yes I would. I will say "yes I would" Keep up the good work

4 out of 5 eggsBang Your Buck Here

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

Pros: Great price point for the amount of storage without having to do a rebate. HD Tune pro indicated it met advertised read speed.

Cons: DLH+USPS = -1 egg

Other Thoughts: HD Tunepro indicated it met the 450 MBS read speed. Made sure to get the latest Intel Rapid storage driver for my laptop. Laptop boot speed awesome now WIndows 7. Did not test the write speed.

The con is this was the first time that I got an order shipped from Newegg via DLH. Normally with UPS/fed ex I would be amazed at deliver speed, often only a day or two. Well, DLH kept the order the day or two, transferred it to a facility only marginally closer to may house than the original ship point THEN tendered it to USPS who took an additional 3-4 days to get it the 45 miles left to my house. Hope this isn't the new normal. -1 Egg for that, which is not fair to the Product which was a good buy.
