Kingston SSDNow V+ 128GB SSD - Bjorn3D.com

 

By adding 2oz of copper to thier motherboards, using all Japanese solid state capacitors, too utilizing Ferrite core chokes (Ultra Durable 3). Make's GIGABYTE a force to be reconed with when it comes to their motherboards.

The Kingston SSDNow V+ 128GB SSD just plain delivers what it promises. Speeds were consistently within striking distance of theoretical limits given the drives advertised specifications. With the Samsung controller and 3 year warranty behind it the...

Kingston SSDNow V 128GB Laptop Upgrade Kit - Bjorn3D.com

 

It's funny watching movies from just a few years ago. Spy's sneaking about with 3.5 inch floppies stealing data in clandestine operations. The technology often dates the movies and we're continually amazed by the miniaturization of components. When we...

The Kingston SSDNow 128GB Notebook upgrade kit retails for about $219.99 (at time of post) and includes the SSDNow 128GB drive, the External Enclosure, and a bootable Acronis that can clone any drives you need cloned. Figuring that the typical Drive...

Kingston SSDNow V+

 

Kingston is trying to keep up with the fast-advancing solid-state drive technology, but their V+ series still lacks many features it needs to compete with the other companies. The Toshiba controller is impressive, but the actual performance of the...

The Toshiba controller is impressive

Low sequential and random write speeds

The Kingston SSDNow V+ Series is not as powerful as other SSD options.

Kingston SSDNow V+ 128GB SSD Review

 

Want to dramatically improve the performance of your machine? We test the V+ from Kingston.

Ideal for an OS drive ; TRIM Support ; Great performance ; 3 Years Warranty

Similar speed drives are a little cheaper

In the last 6 months SSD prices have dropped significantly giving over to an increase in sales. As with all new technology you will pay a premium, but as we have seen SSDs mature and the increase in demand this has meant consumers can invest without...

Kingston SSD Now V+ 100 128GB

 

The Kingston SSD Now V+ 100 128GB used to impress us but now seems a bit middle of the road. Read our review.

This puts the Kingston V+ 100 in a fairly middling place. Its low end sibling, the V 100, delivered low speeds but matched it with a very reasonable pricetag. Unfortunately the V+ 100 has a similar cost per gigabyte to the OCZ Vertex 3, which is a much...

OK, but hiccups causing random reboots

 

Very fast indeed relative to a standard HDD

While I cannot rule out the SATA interface of my MSI motherboard, I get a large number or R/W errors that finally led me to put my operating systems back on a standard HDD and use this solely for caching and swap drive use. Even then, I get random...

Fanstastic device

 

I was shocked watching how fast 64GB can format (about 15 seconds) compared to the 300GB partition I setup in a RAID 1+0 array (about 20 minutes). This drive so far has performed well. The price was a little steep (would have liked a bigger drive),...

Really good speed, quiet

Price was a little high

Consumer review by:

Excellent

 

Even 6GB of RAM wasn't enough to see a difference with my old, slow hard drives. But now I can dedicate my 2TB of drive space to just storage, and this beast to the OS and virtual memory. If you've got plenty of drive space but need better performance,...

Installed easily, Win7 installed in under 20 minutes. Mandriva Linux installed in about the same time. Best upgrade I've done in a very long time

No mounting bracket for my desktop, but you can place this anywhere

Asus P55 EVO i7860 8Gs corsair memory lancool case H-50 liquid cpu cooler radeon 5850 video card corsair TX750 PS

very fast startup, NO HEAT! newest coolest HD out there, small size is nice

A little expensive for 64Gs , wish I could afford a larger size or more than 1

Brings true meaning to fast!

 

I can't get over how fast this drive is. I installed it in my Gateway notebook, running Windows7 64bit with 4GB of ram and a dual core 2ghz processor, without a hitch (easy). My notebook used to take a couple minutes to boot, now it takes about 20...

It's the fastest on the market for the price. Light weight, compact, low power usage...so low that my notebook runs almost 2hrs longer than before! I use everything from Adobe(tm) Master Collection to VisualStudio, and it used to take minutes to start...

The price per GB of storage is a bit steep, but that goes for all SSD at this point in the game. I only use it for my OS and APIs, everything else gets stored elsewhere. I'll wait to purchase anything with more capacity, until the price/GB drops
