For the previous posters, this is identical to the Intel drives (not the mainstream, but the enthusiast models). Kingston just puts a different sticker on it like ADATA does with some of their drives. If you build a high-end system with 12 or 24 GB of...

Very fast. Short HDD Manufacturers' stock because SSD is the future

Too expensive. I have bought about 6 different models of SSDs and can't tell the difference between any of them except for write speed. This one is one of the highest performers but for the price, get yourself a much larger drive. This is mostly useful...

How fast is instantaneous?


Can someone explain to me why Vista Ultimate 64 takes up almost 40GB on my Raid array!?

Lightning-fast drives. Two of these in Raid 0 maxes out the throughput of my MoBo southrbidge (on-board Raid). Raid was auto-detected by Vista install so no fussing with drivers

Well the cost per byte is high for SSD, but what else is new? If you have to have the best

same performance as Intel


Make sure to run it in AHCI mode with NCQ support -- ASUS P6T defaults to IDE mode.

Identical in performance to the Intel model, it just comes with a Kingston sticker on it

Comes well packaged, but the tiny unmarked cardboard box was a little disappointing to open (don't know how the 'Intel' one compares)

Product Specifications

This solid-state drive uses NAND flash memory components and is not only faster but also more reliable and more durable than mechanical hard drives. The SSDNow E Series creates greater return on investment because of its impressive input and output operations per second (IOPS). Higher IOPS performance means you need significantly fewer SSDs compared to HDDs while saving energy in a server environment. With no moving parts, Kingston's SSDNow generates less heat, no noise, faster boot times and faster application loads - all with lower power consumption than traditional hard drives. SSD uses a standard hard disk drive interface but unlike an HDD, SSD is very rugged and can handle more extreme environments because it's built with no moving parts. Kingston's SSDNow E Series drives are equipped with S.M.A.R.T (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) to tell the user when a drive is about to fail.
