3 out of 5 eggsNot bad but... not the best

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

Pros: great price
great warranty
very slim
energy saving
quiet
5 X more faster than a 7200 rpm hard drive

Cons: drive perform not as advertise for my experience max 284 mb/s far from the 450 mb/s in the specs
Asynchronous technology
cheap ram (Kingston did not manufacture ram)

Other Thoughts: If you are looking to improve an old PC and give you more speed,silence etc and you do not want to pay more for a faster drive this drive can do the job
but if you are looking for a performance drive, ultra fast drive , go with an intel or a samsung and pay more you will not be dissapointed with a better drive for more

1 out of 5 eggsFACT - SSDNow drive performance will drop over time

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

Pros: WAS fast when I installed it worked great. WAS is the operative word. FAST it is not after a year as an O/S only drive (Windows 8.1)

Cons: After about a year the Drive is Running Super Slow in fact its slower than my normal WD Black Secondary drive. After doing some digging I found out that over time this drive will ALWAYS get slower here is Kingston's official word on the subject "Performance decrease has been reported on some of the SSDNow drives. If you have an older SSD drive that does not have effective Garbage Collection, SSD drive performance will drop over time." Mine is only 1 year Old I don't consider that older Kingston should make some sort of Software solution to counter this problem or replace these drives as I consider it false advertising on the speed and performance and a lemon

Other Thoughts: Had I known of this issue I would not have bought this drive so far the only Solution I have seen from Kingston is "Performance decrease has been reported on some of the SSDNow drives. If you have an older SSD drive that does not have effective Garbage Collection, SSD drive performance will drop over time. This is due to the way the system overwrites data that has been flagged for deletion.

Try using the Secure Erase tool like HDDErase to wipe the drive and restore it to original condition.

Which in my case is a pain in the if I have to do that every year

4 out of 5 eggsNicely Done!

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

Pros: It's fast even what I unwittingly filled up all of it's memory. Boots fast too. How fast? Sanic fast! Loads games up like nothing is there. Garry's Mod-boom! Loaded! GTA4, butter smooth loading, and so on. Download? Please, this thing got it covered.

Cons: See other thoughts. Not really any but the listed below.

Other Thoughts: I would go for a full star count, but I'm still having a hard time figuring out how to install a recovery section on it. Whether it be me or the drive, I don't know. I just wish that every time that the power is unexpectedly cut or I run a BIOS setting that gives me an issue, that I don't have to insert my OS disk just to restart my computer. Good thing this happen few and far between.

4 out of 5 eggsIncredible performance, but...

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

Pros: Excellent speed and compatibility.

Cons: First one was DOA, had to RMA.

Other Thoughts: The firs tone of these I got was dead on arrival and had to be RMA'd. The RMA process was painless and hassle-free. LUbuntu booted almost instantly on my laptop with this installed. After that laptop's battery died, I transplanted it to my PS3 where it is also performing admirably.
