Adding an SSD to a desktop already using a standard hard disk drive is a smart and efficient way to upgrade. Transferring the operating system and applications from the HDD to the SSD allows the SSD to be used as a bootable drive that takes full advantage of the Flash-based technology. The SSD and the HDD then co-exist to drive optimal performance in the upgraded desktop. For notebooks, SSDNow drives are a perfect replacement for hard drives resulting in faster, more reliable performance. Making this change will improve a notebook's efficiency in a wide range of tasks, from booting up to running the most robust operating system and demanding applications. The SSDNow V Series drive uses a standard SATA interface but, unlike a regular HDD, SSD is very rugged and built with no moving parts, making it ideal for power users and road warriors who push the limits of their notebooks. Other benefits include reduced power usage, less noise and less heat generation.

Kingston's SSDNow V Series offers performance gains and power consumption reductions at a fraction of the cost of a new system. For added peace of mind, they're backed by 24/7 tech support, a three-year warranty and legendary Kingston reliability.

  • newegg SSD Storage Technology Acting without any moving parts, the Kingston SSDNow V Series SNV425-S2/64GB solid-state drive boasts multiple advanced features including zero mechanical noise, faster data rates compared to conventional HDDs, over 1-million-hour life span, ultra-low power consumption and impressive shock, vibration and extreme temperature resistance. With these breakthrough capabilities, the SSD meets all the demanding requirements for high-performance storage.
  • newegg Windows 7 TRIM Support The Kingston SSDNow V Series SNV425-S2/64GB solid-state drive offers Windows 7 TRIM support, which uses ATA commands to increase the SSD write speeds in Windows 7. It also cuts down on the amount of data to be deleted, increasing the SSD’s lifespan and allowing it to delete garbage data in advance.
  • newegg SATA II Interface The Kingston SSDNow V Series SNV425-S2/64GB solid-state drive features the second-generation SATA II interface supporting up to 3.0 Gb/s data transfer rates, Native Command Queuing (NCQ) and hot-pluggable point-to-point connections for optimum performance, efficiency, convenience and flexibility.

5 years strong 9/22/2015 7:38:14 AM

Pros: Device was quick in its days and for the most part will whoop any HDD speed wise

Cons: Size and cost were huge limiting factors back when I ordered this device, however I have never had any issues with this drive.

Overall Review: Capacity is small but it still can be utilized on my system or laptop

3 years of life 7/28/2013 1:20:12 PM

Pros: It was nice in its day.

Cons: I hoped it would last longer. 3 years is rather short.

Overall Review: I installed only the OS (Win7 or Win8) and kept other files on a second disk so this disk didn't have lots of writing to do. I'm trying Samsung for its replacement.

Problems after a 18 months 10/13/2012 5:35:39 AM

Pros: Price of this drive was very good (after rebate) at the time that I bought it. Performance difference between this and my 7200RPM drives is quite significant - can't imagine going back to HDDs after using an SSD as my primary/boot drive. 3-year warranty was, as it turned out, a good feature...

Cons: After about 16 months of use, with the drive averaging about 75% capacity used over that time, I started to experience some issues. One day, out of the blue, I had a few applications not want to load/open files. After a little troubleshooting, a complete power down/up cycle fixed this behavior (restart had no effect), but with a result of all recent (about a 12-hour window of time) documents reverting back to their previous states. I essentially lost recent changes/additions to any files that were used that day. Just thought it was some crazy situation, but it has happened again and again now over the following 2 months, and the drive is no longer dependable - at random intervals, it simply quits committing new data properly. Reported to Kingston, they issued an RMA immediately, no discussion on the problem, so my guess is that this is a common failure for this drive and likely related to poor wear-leveling capabilities. Hopefully the replacement drive lasts a bit longer.

Overall Review: Overall, I'm pretty neutral on this purchase. Love the performance increases, disappointed with the longevity of this product. This has been discontinued for some time now, but I thought I'd post in the event anyone else was experiencing a similar situation.

Signs of being faulty after about a year 4/15/2012 12:08:15 AM

Pros: Much less power consumption/heat, far quieter (I may have heard a very faint high-frequency electrical buzz come from it when accessed), and much more durable than mechanical hard drives.

Long enough warranty in my case (expires February 2013).

Cons: Still quite expensive, as all SSD's.

Despite benchmarks showing drastically improved read/write times, I had a hard time noticing any real improvement in load times over a 400GB SATA2 HDD. My lack of doing any actual time comparisons likely contributed to my difficulty in seeing any difference. Regardless, it was nowhere near as blazing fast as many people claim to experience from SSD's.

After about a year, I started getting corruption and read errors. I followed partitioning instructions specifically for SSD's which at first I thought helped, but eventually the read errors returned and I couldn't boot (appeared to hit the error in the middle of loading GRUB). Apparently the only workaround at that point is to format and reinstall the OS, and wait for it to inevitably happen again a month or two later. Oddly enough, SMART reported no problems.

Overall Review: I bought this since it was in my price range with decent value for SSD's at the time and I really liked the advantages of SSD. As detailed above, I got considerably less than I expected. I still support SSD as a technology and I assume I just ended up with a faulty one.

I hope the issue isn't too common with this model, otherwise the warranty might not be much help. If worst comes to worst, I might need to sell it for a few bucks and buy a newer/better SSD.

Drive bugging out after about a year 9/12/2011 12:58:02 PM

Pros: This drive is fast and when it works it seems to be just fine

Cons: The drive started freaking out and having boot issues. It will eventually lock up and I have to disconnect my 2nd had drive in order for this one to boot up windows. I tried to update the firmware but it said that the version: D100309A" that is on there is newer than the suggested update.

So now I have been having all sorts of crashes

Overall Review: Don't buy this drive if there is something of a comparible price out there .

Pros: Cheap when I bought them ($40 rebate x2). 460/200mb/s r/w.

Cons: Seek time is a tiny bit high but is imperceptible at these speeds.

Overall Review: I like the idea that I can expand my raid later assuming Kingston keeps producing them.

great job 3/17/2011 9:24:27 PM

Pros: april I will have had this drive a year, no problems at all
works great and the xfer rates are as advertised

I purchased this and a adata 64gig drive, wish I had purchased 2 of these my adata drive has a life time warranty, but i've had to use this warranty twice now so whats the point in having a drive that is nothing more than a very LARGE flash drive

Cons: none to mention
