5 out of 5 eggsGreat upgrade

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

Pros: I could not believe how fast windows 8.1 booted when I pressed power button on laptop . less than 5 sec to desktop!
amazing . access to HD is super fast . programs respond great .

Cons: My laptop had windows 8.1 .. I decided to Clone the HD using a USB port and cloning software .. tried western digital free ( had a western digital drive ) tried Macrium Reflect .. neither worked .. no boot .

Tried Farstone Clone Free version , Success !!!! BUT
I qualify for the windows 10 free upgrade and when I try to do that , I get a message from the windows 10 upgrade that it cant install to USB drive .. Computer sees it as a disk drive in bios and windows 8.1 labels it as disk drive ?

I can only guess that I did something wrong in cloning process , or windows 10 just doesnt like it ?

Other Thoughts: regardless of windows 10 issue ... this is a great buy , and your hard drive based laptop will be like a machine on steroids after the upgrade .. Absolutely worth it . not sure if Cloning software will support cloning from windows 10 .. didnt see that on any web sites but its only a matter of time.

5 out of 5 eggsBeats 4 Cheetah 15k drives in RAID 0 on a 12 GB/s Raid Controller

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

Pros: I purchased a Dell Precision T5500 that came with a SAS 12 GB/s controller with 4 Cheetah 15k drives connected, In Windows 7 the WIE showed 6.5 and bench marks showed the 4 drives did max out at 12 GB/s but I connected this drive to the on board SATA II port got a WIE of 7.8 bench marks showed max 240 MB/s.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: Since the SAS controller was limited to 4 connections at 3 GB/s max 12 GB/s their is now way to tell how many SAS drives in RAID 0 this one SSD would out perfrome.

5 out of 5 eggsBrought new life to old laptops

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

Pros: Faster than the 7200 RPM laptop dives I had in aging Dell M4400 precision mobile workstations. Boots Windows in about 10 seconds. Software runs much faster. Easily imaged from HD to SSD using third party software (acronis). Great sale price.

Cons: Not as fast as SAMSUNG PRO SSDs I have in other computers, but, otherwise great.

5 out of 5 eggsFast, Reliable

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

Pros: My first SSD, and I have yet to encounter any problems after almost an year!
Still going fast, and while getting below the advertised speeds, I can say I'm more than satisfied. Windows 7 boots up in 7 seconds.

Cons: Small disk space? Doesn't come with an enclosure.

Other Thoughts: You should probably invest in an enclosure.

5 out of 5 eggsSo Fast Compared to Mechanical

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

Pros: I have used several of this Kingston series in various builds and have had no failures to date. I expect the same from this drive. It is difficult to compare SSD drives when talking about seat of the pants speed because all of the different brands I have used are fast. I guess time will tell concerning long-term reliability but for now I give 5 stars..

Cons: none

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: Speed is great, enough storage for my needs, no reliability problems

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace the older mechanical drive in my laptop. Originally was dual booting this with Win7 and Ubuntu. The speeds in both were noticeably better than with the old drive. Eventually I scrapped windows and went with ubuntu with full disk encryption. If it is slower, I don't notice it.

3 out of 5 eggsEarly Failure

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

Pros: I bought this SSD 11/07/2014.
It's a pretty good, solid performer.
Speed isn't the best, but it's definitely a huge step up from a normal hard drive. For the price it is nearly unbeatable.

Cons: Yesterday, Windows started to detect that my drive is failing. I'm not necessarily sure if there's anything I can do to stop it, but as of right now we're looking at potential failure 3/4 of a year in. Slightly disappointing seeing as Kingston is a very large, reliable brand.. But failures happen.

Manufacturer Response:

William,

We apologize for what has happened with the V300 that you have received. The good thing is that these drives come with 3 years warranty and we can assist with replacing the drive. I've created a case number for you, SR256524. Please contact us in technical support line at, 1-800-435-0640 (USA and Canada only) M - F 6am - 6pm PT .

Thank you for using Kingston SSDs.
