Big Improvement over Previous Model

R M., Newegg
11 April 2013
  • Summary: Our original SV100 64GB model had the file-writing slowdown problem which was a problem for several different brands of SSDs. We sent it to Kingston and they replaced it with this newer model SV200.
  • Pros: Good upgrade from previous model SV100. Small file performance is noticeably faster. Shipped with latest firmware for last several months. Inexpensive Windows boot drive.
  • Cons: none so far

Very nice

lisa p., Newegg
6 October 2012
  • Pros: Other reviews say its slower than other ssds, well I don't have any experience with other ssds but I will say compared my old sata 1 hdd it's crazy fast I can't even begin to compare them. And I guess there are some reviews based on old firmware, but it looks like I missed that set of issues. And...

Nice and fast, and fits my laptop

Anonymous, Newegg
20 September 2012
  • Summary: There are two things that caused this drive to get such a low score in previous reviews, and both are things you shouldn't experience. 1. Acronis cannot initialize this drive. This seems to be a bug in Acronis and may have been resolved now. Windows can initialize the drive perfectly fine. 2.
  • Pros: It's thinness makes it compatible with my laptop which requires a 7mm drive. I can get read speeds of 350MB/s, which surprised me because I thought my laptop could only do SATA II. Includes a plastic thingy that you stick on the side in order for it to sit properly in cases/laptops designed for s...
  • Cons: After installing Windows 7 to it I was having an issue where I'd get a WEI of 5.9. running winsat disk in an elevated command was showing I was getting very bad latencys on Long IOs. However, this seemed to have resolved itself once I finished installing all of the Windows updates.

Fast and well-priced

Joseph W., Newegg
11 September 2012
  • Summary: It's only one day into ownership here and I actually purchased this to speed up a relative's computer. It had been on an IDE hard drive, but had plenty of SATA ports on new motherboard, so I ordered this unit. Going from the IDE HDD to the SSD was such a huge performance boost.
  • Pros: Fast, good price, trustworthy brand, good warranty It has 4 mounting holes on the bottom, and 2 mounting holes on each side, so you have a couple different options for mounting it.
  • Cons: Does not come with mounting bracket or even mounting screws, but does come with some sort of sticky mount that I didn't bother figuring out how to use. But for the price, no complaints. It also does not come with a SATA cable, of course, but to my knowledge, none of these do.

Good Price Good Performance

Nathaniel G., Newegg
11 September 2012
  • Summary: This is my first SSD. Put this into my computer and did a fresh Win7 Pro 64 install. Running fantastic, no issues recognizing the drive, and it is blazing fast. Shuts down in less than a few seconds. Start time is probably about 10 seconds, maybe less.
  • Pros: Was easy to install. Cheap for the capacity. Speeds are great compared to my 7200.
  • Cons: Maybe no mounting bracket but I didn't expect one.

2nd Review

Jonathan A., Newegg
9 September 2012
  • Summary: Forgot to mention, DO NOT follow the written directions, run the "clone" program BEFORE you swap the drives or it WILL NOT WORK!!! The program is from Acronis and works very well. I've used several versions of this and they ALL work if you CAREFULLY follow the directions.
  • Pros: Fast
  • Cons: Price
