Kingston SSDNow V300 (120GB & 240GB) Review

 

Kingston's SSD lineup is as follows: They have HyperX-branded SSDs for enthusiasts and the mainstream market is catered by SSDNow brand. The HyperX SSDs have been fairly popular from what I've seen and we have also reviewed the regular HyperX as well...

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...

Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S3D7

 

The 128GB Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S3D7 internal solid-state drive pushes well below the $1 per GB price point without compromising drive performance.

Great price/performance ratio. Priced well below $1 per GB

Older SF-2181 loses speed in random read/writes, or when working with uncompressed data

The 120GB Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S3D7 internal solid-state drive (SSD) is priced to appeal to ordinary consumers but with performance that sat at the top of the enthusiasts market not so long ago. With a great price-per-GB ratio and strong...

Kingston SSDNow V300 Solid State Drive Review: SandForce with New Fixings

 

You may have the impression that solid state drives on LSI SF-2281 controller have already been studied and tested inside out. However, Kingston managed to come up with a product that turned out genuinely surprising in the most positive way.

Frankly speaking, we are rather wary of SandForce-based SSDs. Besides their past firmware flaws which took a lot of time to be corrected, we don’t like their susceptibility to performance degradation due to imperfect TRIM implementation whereas their...

Kingston Technology’s 120GB V300 SSDNow Desktop and Notebook Upgrade Kits Reviewed

 

Consumers are looking for larger SSDs at lower price points and it seems the NAND manufacturers (Intel, Micron, etc) are dragging their heals on releasing larger capacities that should drive down those prices. However, prices are far better than they...

Good pricing: as affordable as SSDs come ; LSI Sandforce Controller ; 19nm Toshiba NAND ; Respectable price-performance ; Great Desktop and Laptop Upgrade Kit bundles ; Acronis software and support

Waiting for larger capacities ; 4K data block could be better

Solid State Drives are the inevitable direction of storage technology but adoption is still slow. For a few months there it looked like we were getting closer to .50 cents a GB but then prices went back up. I don’t think it’s all that influenced by the...

Kingston SSDNow V300 120 GB Review

 

Kingston's value SSDs have now entered their third phase of LSI powered storage solutions with the launch of the Kingston SSDNow V300 series.

After quiet some time with the SSDNow V300, all i can say is that Kingston has delivered an exceptional update to their value oriented SSDNow series. The V300 SSD in our benchmarking process came out as a pretty fast storage solution, one which even...

Kingston SSDNow V300 120GB Solid State Drive

 

You can't lift me up," this girl once said to me, making implications about by perceived lack of strength. "Why, because you are ninety percent my weight?" I quickly shot back, not exactly adhering to the two rules of life I always advise people; the...

Kingston SSDNow V300 120GB SSD Review

 

The Kingston SSDNow V300 is yet another value-oriented SSD in Kingston's wildly successful line of mainstream solid state drives. With the pressures of TLC SSDs squeezing the value market we take a look and see if a standard MLC SSD with 19nm Toshiba...

For the capacities of 60GB and 120GB Kingston has managed to deliver a value-oriented SSD that will hold the TLC NAND sharks at bay. The test pool that we placed the 120GB Kingston SSDNow V300 into was definitely weighted against this value offering,...

Kingston SSDNow V300 120GB review

 

We have in our labs Kingston's latest solid-state drives (SSDs) for PCs and laptops, the SSDNow V300 Series. Designed to replace the existing SSDNow V200 models, the V300 should offer sequential read and write speeds of around 450MB/s - somewhere...

With all that in mind and the very high competition at the SSD market, it's always hard to come up with a recommendation. While the drive's performance is not what we would call top notch, it's certainly decent. Price-wise, the Kingston SSDNow V300...

Can Kingston's latest drive give the SandForce controller a new lease of life?

Good performance ; Competitively priced ; Good accessories

Incompressible data performance could be better ; SandForce showing signs of age
