Rock Steady

Charles E., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: I will hopefully get a second one to set a RAID 0 and see how that runs.
  • Pros: I've had this drive for almost 2 years now and it has been nothing but rock steady. It has had 3 fresh installs of windows (I don't upgrade) and still just seems to perform the same. I never fill it up, so it has plenty of room to TRIM and optimize with Windows.
  • Cons: The only thing is that it isn't quite as fast as some of the others.

  • Summary: 7 years ago, my notebook was fast, very fast. After upgrade the RAM, OS, 7200RPM HDD, this NB is for " Quicken " use only, use it once a week..., until this SSD, CPU is not always 60%, RAM is down to 35%, doesn't need noisy cooling pad. If your HDD LED always blinking and keep on, it's time to change into SSD, your NB will have another 2 years to go...
  • Pros: Quite and cool, FFFFFFFAST
  • Cons: size limitation

Good Entry Level Drive

Nerd Alert, Amazon
25 July 2014
  • Summary: I bought a Kingston SSD a couple years ago and it has taken a lot of abuse without any issues. Back then, buying anything other than Intel seemed like a gamble, but reliability and speed have improved across all brands since then. Prices have also come down, and options like this HyperX Fury are particularly tempting for those that have yet to jump in to solid state, or just want a less expensive drive for a device that is capped by a SATA II interface anyway.

  • Summary: I bought several V300 ssd but stopped since the chips were changed which made the write speeds cut in half. Now that the HyperX is the same price that I bought the V300 for and the write speeds are faster. I will keep buying these until they make changes for the worse. IF that happens I no longer buy from Kingston which will be a shame since I bought all my SSD's and memory from them.
  • Pros: The colour black., Sale price, Quality
  • Cons: Blue adapter

Nice SSD, but no migration software included

Rich, rakuten

  • Summary: Kingston makes quality products and this one is no exception. I just wish they would have included software to migrate the contents of my HDD to this SSD (that's migrate NOT clone - there is a difference!). Competitive SSDs that include migration software are by far a better value.

  • Summary: Good bang for buck! I got a Watch Dog voucher for a free game included with my purchase of this SSD. SSD + Free Game = steal!!! I upgraded from a 120GB SSD because it was running out of space. 240GB is well more than enough to store the OS, applications and games. If you are thinking of upgrading your primary hard drive, and you see this on sale, don't hesitate just buy it!
  • Pros: fast boot time, included mounting hardware.
  • Cons: can't think of anything right now.

SSD

Stephen F., Newegg
3 July 2014
  • Pros: Once i figured out the issue i was having with the ssd randomly freezing the whole system (details in cons) i was very pleased with the proformance boost it provided. Extremely fast boot times. Holds my win 7 os, and a couple of the games i play on reg. and most other stuff goes on mech hard drive i have running with it. Very happy with overal addition to system.
  • Cons: There is almost no support found on the net for the freezing issue i was having. I am very handy with problem solving stuff and finding a web solution but for the lfie of me could not. Come to find out i needed to change my sata port controlers over to AHCI and not run in ide. It is important that you make the needed changes in your registry aswell other wise you will have boot issues when you make the change to AHCI.

Fast SSD, but not as fast as a Samsung 840 Pro.

Giuseppe G., Newegg

  • Summary: I think this SSD was worth it, and I also like how you don't need to bother with TRIM since it has a SandForce controller.
  • Pros: - Fast Speeds Overall, 420 MB/s Read and 243 MB/s Write. - Doesn't Produce Sound - Comes with a convenient 2.5" to 3.5" adapter, which I used, pretty sturdy build.
  • Cons: - Screws were a bit hard to screw in, it gives you a feeling you will break them. - Small Capacity, I wish SSDs had capacities like Hard Drives. - The 2.5" to 3.5" adapter didn't have all holes like a 3.5" Hard Drive
