Kingston 64GB SSDNow V+ Review
25 January 2012
Conclusion: There is no doubt Kingston SSDNow V+ drive is a great SSD but in fact it is much better than SSDNow V series drive where both of the read/write speeds are almost doubled up. Besides that Kingston 64GB SSDNow V+ drive is also equipped with 128MB onboard cache to boost the SSD's performance and the overall system respond time.
Conclusion: The new Kingston SSDNow V+ series featuring Toshiba’s controller and flash memory has proven itself to be a worthy alternative as a slightly less expensive solid-state drive that doesn’t compromise on performance. With TRIM able to keep the SSD from experiencing the typical slowdown effects as the drive undergoes normal use, it is able to maintain 160MB/s write speeds and quick response times without the performance vanishing after that first initial honeymoon period...
Summary: Couldn't help noticing previous reviewer's bad rating for this product which is actually seller rating (there is in fact a different feedback portal for sellers and this review should have been posted there). I had this SSD for over a year and it's still working trouble free with no issues at all. I am using it in my laptop and the first thing you'd notice is that the boot-up speed is markedly quick compared with the HDD it replaced.
Summary: After two weeks it failed badly. I managed to recover some of the data and order a different disk, but then I discover that amazon return window had expired. Now I have this brick I would not use for any of my machines. a waste of money, don't buy it.
Summary: I have been using this Kingston Tech 2.5 inch 128GB for more than a year now. SSD loads programs so quick. Windows starts in seconds. SSD has no disk inside so no spinning, heating etc. Its more reliable as well. I wish data transfer speed was quicker than this (which is still not worse than any 7200 rpm internal drives). Don't worry about having less space. 128GB is pretty good for storing your OS and programs.
Summary: I have been using this drive in an laptop for about 6 months; I needed more space than an Intel 80GB SSD provided, so I went for this new, Toshiba based controller SSD. The Intel went into a netbook. Firstly, I have had no reliability issues with this drive in 6 months of use; it has not corrupted or had any kind of issue. These are much better than the old SVNP125/225 versions and are faster than the SVNP425 (through same controller).
Summary: Best thing I've bought for my gaming PC for some time.It want improve the over all speed of your games but boy does it load the games and windows quicker.Not much use for masses of data i.e..Photos mp3 as it only 64gb.I did have some problems with my mother board running windows in 64bit mode but I got a very quick response from the tech support team, even though the problem was not due to their product.
Summary: Does what it says on the tin. A budget SDD. On reflection paying a £100+ for 64Gb compared to getting 2Tb if I bought SATA may not have been the best move but it has made my PC much quieter and it does load windows faster which was the main reason to switch to SSD in the first place. I wont be buying any more until the prices come right down and the capacity goes up but this was worth a punt to see what all the SSD fuss was about.
Summary: Fitted this to my PC and it is now faster and quieter. It also consumes less power. The disk comes with software that copied the contents of my existing boot disk onto the new disk. That worked really well. The only worry is that Microsoft's Windows license does not allow a boot disk to be swapped. You have to buy another license. So far Microsoft have not asked me to 'pay again', but it could happen in future.
