Pros: Nice card to fit into a small budget like mine.
It handles Hawken and a few of the other games I wanted to try out just fine. I like it. My hearing is still fine ;-)
Cons: None.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: None for the SSD!
Newegg's support made my return easy.
Cons: Slower than my hard drive. Returned it.
Other Thoughts: I purchased lots of Kingston products in the past but reading the reviews now, although to late, makes me never by another product from Kingston again.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This SSD has a fairly low Price and has good performance in Reads/mb
I wouldn't recommend this SSD to a friend, though.
Cons: Although the reads are good the writes are slow.
I gave this SSD several bench tests using CrystalDiskMark, Anvil Storage Utilities RC6, and a bunch of others. I don't use benchmark utilities for testing which produce results favorable to their products controller or firmware, I use what everyone else uses out there.
First came the test on a desktop pc (socket 2011) with an pci-e x1 add-on card (Marvel controller) and the results were horrible with approx. 250 read. A bit better on a pci-e x2 Syba SD-PEX40054 card getting close to 350. On the native intel 6gb/s port it was similar as on my Server with the LSI with arround 450 reads. Writes were arround 120-130 on all cards and platforms.
Testbed: Intel 5600 Server with two Xeons.
Read/Write Results connected to a LSI 9260-8i controller (no cache or fastpath enabled) are:
4K QD32: 140.9/125.7
Other Thoughts: It's just another one of the many SSD's available which reel you in with a low price but don't measure up to their advertised specs.
Thought I give it another shot with this drive as I have sent the Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/120G back to Newegg as it performed slower then my hard drive. I'll keep it to avoid the hassle of doing another RMA although Newegg was great in accepting my previous return and that's the reason why I buy from them. They stay behind you in case you need support.
