"Somewhat ok ssd for the price." Can get speeds close to as advertised on compressed files only!

Summary: The Kingston SSDNow V+200 is a low to mid level performing SSD. Spec wise it's it uses the same tried and tested Sandforce sf-2281 controller that many SSD makers use. I don't know if it is it's firmware but it has slower performance than most others using the same controller like the Vertex 3 or...
Summary: I changed my win7 registry today to enable ahci and then enabled it in bios. a bit faster in AS SSD. today I used ATTO, the recommended software and I get a max of 228/270 MB/sec for writing and reading. so this is about half of the advertised speed.
Summary: Crystal Disk Mark. 10 rounds of benchmarking. Sequential read averaged 485mb/s. Sequential write averaged 301mb/s. Most folks won't notice the difference (it's still plenty fast, don't get me wrong), but if you have specific write performance needs (I do, unfortunately), you'll want to pass on this...
Summary: As this drive is a bit small for my production computers, I installed it in my Linux (Ubuntu) based home theatre PC. For this purpose, I have 3 needs: durability against high operating temperatures, quick wake up times, and quiet operation. This drive is satisfactory for all three requirements.
Summary: The product itself works fantastic. I got it to replace my ex-wife's hard drive in her MacBook as her mechanical drive was intermittently failing. Once I got this installed, formatted, etc., her machine works excellently.
Great performance in general, unstable boot performance

Summary: Easy setup with the right tool, which is not included in this model. I used the clone utility that came with Kingston's SSDnow Upgrade Bundle Kit from a previous purchase. Boot up time is much faster than regular HDD for most of the time.
Summary: I build two computers one with this SSD the other with an Intel SSD. The Intel SSD noticeably outperforms this one. If you are looking for a cheep and stable SSD this one will due, but if you want significant performance get something else.
Summary: I bought this for the faster speeds than hard drives, though a little slower than i anticipated. After some research it turns out they switched technology in these and hence the slower speeds. For this the 3 stars.
Does not work as intended, as stated on the packaging!

Summary: I received the package in good order, connected it to my computer (SATA port not USB) and ran CrystalDiskMark, the benchmark program used for testing HDD speeds by all the pros. The results were a lot slower than expected, twice the speed of my Seagate 7200.10 HDD!
