1 out of 5 eggs Follow up to my previous review 03/01/2014

This review is from: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SV300S37A/120G

Pros: solid construction

Cons: still slow, returning drive

Other Thoughts: Dear Kingston. I've verified that in my BIOS that I am running my SATA 3 ports in AHCI mode and I've verified it in Windows as well via the registry @ HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\services\msahci\start (should read 0, it does). Like I said before, when no data was loaded the drive performs around 300mb\s. When I load data it performs much slower.

I've also stated in my previous review that I was using the AMD 990FX chipset. My motherboard is NewEgg item# N82E16813128514

HDtune short stroke 1GB read pass with:

with data loaded @ 80% full: ~120mb/s

Other Thoughts: I understand drives respond slower with data loaded but this is ridiculous.
