X-bit labs
14 May 2013

Kingston SSDNow V300 (120GB & 240GB) Review

AnandTech
30 April 2013
  • Conclusion: I have one issue with the V300: There's nothing particular in it that would differentiate it from the other SandForce based SSDs. While Kingston said they did lots of customization and worked closely with SandForce/LSI, at least in our testing there aren't any striking differences.

Expert Review

Tweak Town
14 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Just as you rise you shall fall because the only guarantees in life are death and taxes. The LSI SandForce SF-2281 has reached middle age and like every mid-life crisis, things are starting to change. The enthusiast performance crown changed hands in the last few months as Samsung's 840 Pro and OCZ's Vector are now riding their horses in the center of the enthusiast joust ring.

Kingston SSDNow V300 120GB Solid State Drive

APH Networks
1 March 2013
  • Conclusion: Ahh, biased figures. I am rather tempted to say that the Kingston SSDNow V300 120GFB is slow, because it is rated at 'only' 450MB/s read, 450MB/s write, and 85,000 IOPS by the manufacturer -- but what gives? As I have mentioned earlier in the introduction of this review, this is no different than me implicitly saying someone as fat because they are 90% of my weight, when in reality, you can be five inches shorter than me at that figure, and still be considered to be...

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The 128GB Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S3D7 internal solid-state drive pushes well below the $1 per GB price point without compromising drive performance.
  • Pros: Great price/performance ratio. Priced well below $1 per GB.
  • Cons: Older SF-2181 loses speed in random read/writes, or when working with uncompressed data.

Kingston SSDNow V300 120GB SSD Review

eteknix.com
4 February 2013
  • Conclusion: Since Kingston introduced the V series of drives a few years ago, the V has always stood for Value and this by all means stands true to this drive. The V300 is the fastest V series drive that we have seen to date (as one would expect) and along with a comprehensive bundle & competitive price tag, its no wonder that these are becoming the drives of choice for many first time users that want to take the step over to the world of SSD storage.
