2 out of 5 eggsGood drive, bad software

This review is from: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S3N7A/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Notebook Bundle Kit - Retail

Pros: The drive performs well. I installed Windows on it and everything is extremely smooth and quick.

Cons: I used the included software to clone my hard drive to this SSD. However, during the cloning process my original drive was completely wiped, which made me lose all of my files. I ended up doing a clean install onto the SSD.

Other Thoughts: Be wary when using the included software when performing the cloning process. Either back up all of your data or use some other software.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. We apologize for the issue experienced with the Acronis software. When going through the automatic cloning process if your original drive was selected as the source and the V300 as the destination than it should have just read your drive to write it to the V300 and the data should have remained in tact on your original drive. If that was somehow mixed up the V300 was selected as the source and your original drive as the destination that would have essentially wipe the drive due to cloning a blank drive to it. You may be able to recover some of your files by using data recovery software like Photorec, located here: http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec . For any further assistance, 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.

Thank you for selecting Kingston as your upgrade partner.

5 out of 5 eggsThese are A great Product

This review is from: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S3N7A/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Notebook Bundle Kit - Retail

Pros: As an SSD - it is a very fast HD. I have not had any issues with this SSD failing or slowing for any reason.

As an Upgrade Kit - THE EASIEST upgrade kit ever! Swap out the drives, run the software, Flawless Clone! The external casing in this kit for the spare drive is perfect as well as great looking. By far the best product I have ever used to upgrade all types and ages of older laptops.

Cons: No Cons

USB 3.0 would be nice, but only if it did not effect the price. This Kit is perfect right now

Other Thoughts: I recommend this to everyone. Save your old laptop and speed it up by simply using this kit. I am an IT Tech and upgrade a lot of older laptops. I save thousands of dollars using this kit and making these older laptops fly!

5 out of 5 eggsExcelent Boot Device.

This review is from: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S3N7A/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Notebook Bundle Kit - Retail

Pros: With this SSD OS install was quick even with a large number of restarts. Boot up time is very short and programs load near instantly. The SSD has plenty of space to reserve headroom for SSD maintenance while installing all your main programs and drivers. I installed into a new desktop build but the resources that come with the SSD should be good for disk cloning for a laptop but I prefer to back up data and reinstall clean to refresh the speed of the system over cloning.

Cons: Price per GB more than HHD, but it is coming more affordable and worth the upgrade for speed.

Other Thoughts: Remember to maintain enough free space to keep your SSD runing fast and to maintaiin the life of the SSD.

Data intensive games should still be stored on and HHD. The type of reads done from most games are larger sequential files vs the drivers, small process files and page files in the OS are smaller random reads. This basicially means the speed boost is to small to justify the extra load on the SSD for game instalations. The same is true for media and data storage such as videos, pictures, documents and music
