Kingston - SSDNow V+ 180 128GB

 

Unlike most solid state drives, the Kingston SSDNow V+ 180 comes in a smaller-than-usual 1.8-inch form factor. It's a type of drive found in a number of very small notebooks - a class of machine that ...

A solid SSD from Kingston that delivers the reliability we'd expect and competitive performance.

Rock solid reliability

 

Installed in my laptop along side the Hard Drive, Boot times from cold boot is around 17 seconds. wake time is near instant. The price is really the only issue, it is still pricey in comparison to its 2.5" drive cousins, but being able to use it...

Incredibly fast ; Reliable

Very fast, when it works

 

I purchased the 128G version of this product from Staples, it was very fast. I was able to load Windows 7 as quicker than I ever loaded any OS... well maybe Ubuntu, but who is counting. I got great test scores using Passmark system score, Then, when I...

Bad Sectors

 

I started noticing the bootmgr errors before my return policy ran out at Newegg. Should've returned it when I had the chance. It's completely unusable after less than 2 months. A little disappointed. I liked the idea of having a larger and faster...

In order to use the msata as the O/S, I had to back it up and then pull the existing 2.5 inch drive out in order to install the O/S on the msata drive. This took some research online as well as trial and error.

Good O/S drive for my Y570 Lenovo notebook. Good value for a 64GB SSD (especially compared to other competing msata drives). Easy to connect. Amazingly small if you haven't seen an msata drive, probably not much thicker than five business cards and...

Small size for a O/S drive. Difficulty forcing the Y570 to use the msata as the primary drive (see other thoughts below). Performance seems about 75% of a true 2.5 inch SATA SSD (based upon my subjective view -- no hard numbers)

Very nice

 

Very nice replacement drive for my MSI Windpad. The 32 GB that came with it was nice but just not quite enough space

fast and easy to install

 

Most USB to SATA adapters, with a SATA to microSATA cable will not recognize the drive. This is a problem with the cable(s) and not the drive. I got an eSATA to microSATA cable (with separate USB pigtail to power the drive) and the computer (Lenovo...

very fast, cloning the drive was easy once I had the right cable
