Kingston SSDNow V+100 SVP100S2/256G 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Improves battery life.

Cons: Performance was not as expected. I have a HP EliteBook 8540w. Using the driver for the storage controller from HP Intel Matrix Storage Manager Driver the Seq read was 35mb/s, Seq Write was 18mb/s. I have updated to latest Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver which helped. Speed is now 63.52 write, 64.10 read. But no where near the specs. Other note I have tested in another identical laptop same issue. Also with an Intel M25 SSD which I got 260 read, 98 write on the same drivers.

I have opened a ticket with Kingston and they have not responded. No phone number to call. They state they will respond within 48 hours but I have no response after 4 days.

Other Thoughts: If you have this laptop at least, or same intel controller dont be surprised if you dont get the speed you think.
