    Size Name: 240GB
    Length: 4:59 Mins
    The Kingston SSDNow V+200 is Kingston's attempt to provide a solid-state drive with the amazing Sandforce processor at a reasonable price. I was able to score one of these drives from a street vendor, and it was worth every penny. I had the choice between the V100 256GB and the V+200 240GB for the same price, and I chose the latter because I am planning on buying a new laptop with SATA 3 in a few months.

    *Installation
    My installation went flawlessly. I unplugged my old drive, unscrewed the bracket, and transferred the bracket to the V+200 prior to plugging it into my laptop. I loaded Windows 7 on a USB drive using the USB/DVD download tool from Microsoft. The installation took about 10 minutes. The drive didn't need any changes, and TRIM was already enabled. I just turned off defragmentation.

    *Performance
    Windows score of 7.7
    The V+200 crushed my laptop's factory 5400 RPM drive
    --Shaved 1:08 off of cold boot
    --Shaved 33 seconds off hibernating the system
    --Waking from hibernation is 30 seconds faster
    --Going to sleep takes 8 seconds less
    --Waking from sleep takes 7 seconds less
    See the video for CrystalDiskMark read and write speed tests. On my SATA 2 system I get half of the SATA 3 advertised speeds, and the write speed is about 20MB/s faster than read speed. The drive sees virtually no difference between writing large 1000MB files and small 50MB files.

    *Conclusion
    This hard drive is a great way to upgrade any laptop, even one with a ULV processor and SATA 2. Buyers should be able to transfer it to a new SATA 3 computer without hassle. At the current asking price, the drive might not be worth it compared to the Crucial SSD 256GB offering, which was at $295 when I last looked.

    Size Name: 240GB Verified Purchase
    I've been working on my MacBook for about 6 Months now with a 500GB HD running at 5400 RPM. I waited for my SSD to come in the mail today and installed it immediately. I also installed the new OSX Mountain Lion on it while I was at it. I immediately noticed the speed increase of boot time, shut down, and file transfer. The performance is incredible. I can honestly say it met and exceeded my expectations.
    I've been waiting on purchasing an SSD. So when they went on sale I jumped at the opportunity. Kingston has always been a go to trustworthy brand for me when looking for Memory and Storage.

    TL;DR: Definitely worth the buy if you're upgrading from a Hard Drive.

    Size Name: 120GB Verified Purchase
    This is my first time using a SSD; I bought two of the 120GB drives and I'm really impressed! My old HDD used to take 2m 17s to restart! Now that I have this SDD my computer restarts is just 14s! The difference is night and day, I'll honestly never buy another standard HDD ever again, every HDD I buy from this point on will be solid-state.

    Pros:
    + Using this SSD I was able to cut off 2m 3s from the time it took my PC to restart (that's a 90% faster restart-time).
    + Windows Performance Index went from 5.9 to 7.4!
    + Stuff loads almost instantly now.
    + 120GB is a pretty good amount of space, Windows 7 takes up maybe ~20GB or so, leaving plenty of space for other software.
    + I'm now a SSD convert, and will never buy a standard HDD ever again!

    If you haven't tried a SSD, then I highly recommend you do so, because my "restart time" was reduced by 90%. I STRONGLY recommend this product!

    Must have for your OS/boot. Windows boots in seconds and it opens up video editing apps in less than a second. With my old drive it took about 30 seconds and rendering cut down as well.

    Great performance, I am using it as the boot drive in my laptop. Startup in seconds, and the computer is much peppier than before. It just rocks!

    I replaced the HDD in my laptop for this thing and WOW what a difference. I dont mind shutting my computer down now because it's awake and ready to go as fast as merely making it hibernate. I can go from a cold boot to ready to work in about 15 seconds. I will definitely get a bigger one soon but for now this fits the bill.

    First, this SSD drive works perfectly in our late-2008 MacBook Pro. I strongly recommend buying the correct screwdrivers for the task. I used Amazon's Maxtech 16521MX 32-Piece Precision Bit Set ($11.50) which includes the correct tools and others that have already come in handy. You really don't want to risk stripping the mounting screws.

    The physical removal of the old drive and install of the new SSD drive is truly a piece of cake. I'd recommend viewing instructional videos readily available online (such as ifixit.com). Seeing the parts and steps makes this replacement a very simple task.

    Remember to back-up ALL your old data before starting (including browser favorites, photos, music, etc.). You can also use Apple's Time Machine with a backup drive to simply restore everything. But rather than cloning the old drive content, I chose to do a fresh install of OSX Snow Leopord. Other than figuring out the keyboard buttons at boot to get the CD to be read (with an empty SSD drive), the OS installed without problem. Then it's a matter of installing application software and my old data.

    The Kingston SSDNow V+200 240GB SSD works flawlessly in this Mac. Granted, the Mac is older so we don't get the full speed benefit, but boot time is VERY quick (approx. 15 seconds) and shut-down is almost immediate (1-2 seconds). Local applications launch fast but of course, the browsing the Internet is limited by your connection speeds. Highly Recommended! The only thing that could make this a better deal is if it were free.
