Product Description

Size: 256 GB

Kingston's SSDNow V+100 solid-state drive dramatically improves performance with impressive speeds. It makes any user more productive by speeding up boot times and application loads while removing hard drive crashes and other drive failures. SSDNow V+100 is ideal for demanding corporate environments and for system builders and integrators. It uses a standard SATA interface but unlike a regular hard drive, it's built with no moving parts. It provides durability and reliability to meet the needs of professionals in the office or on the road. Business travelers in any industry will appreciate its performance gains, as will medical professionals, software developers, video editors, designers, IT workers and law enforcement officials. SSDNow V+100 feature an independent garbage collection function that maintains a system at optimum performance level. This is especially important for systems running on Windows XP, which doesn't feature TRIM, and it will also help organizations extend the software cycle on their systems, delaying upgrades of operating systems and compatible applications. SSDNow is backed by a three-year warranty, live free tech support and legendary Kingston reliability.

With most programs you won't notice the difference in opening times of different applications like on the mac.

This SSD works awesome and was the best priced per gb on the market at time of purchase.

Size Name: 96 GB Verified Purchase
I do not know why this product rates so low (but it is only two ratings for what that's worth). I have been waiting to upgrade an aging Dell Dimension desktop machine (circa 2006), and over the past few months upgraded the processor (nice boost there), larger hard drives (1T but only 5400 rpm), memory (3Gb). Windows 7 (installed about 18 months ago) was a big step up in speed (and the faster processor really helped), but going from a 1Tb, 5400rpm system drive to this SSD has been nothing short of awesome.

SSD drives started at $5-6 per Gb, now for less than $2/Gb (and with a rebate - now expired but keep your eye out for another one - close to $1/Gb) this 96Gb unit fits the bill nicely. Plenty of room for the Win7 OS and all the program files I currently have (my current system measures something like 60Gb) in addition to future programs, and wicked-fast speeds.

This has been - hands-down - the best improvement / upgrade my system has seen. Of course these units will continue to drift down in price, and according to all the reviews there are faster units out there, but for the 'bang for the buck' factor you can't go wrong.

With an older motherboard (as I mentioned 2006) there was no provision for ACHI mode in the BIOS, so I'll have to dig around to figure out whether the TRIM function can be enabled through Win7. (MS Knowledge Base 922976 apparently will enable this SATA driver, but I have yet to see that error message indicated).

The instructions that came with the system was surprisingly short (hardly any use to it) but I just plugged it in, entered the BIOS and saw that the drive was immediately recognized. (Make sure to unplug your existing boot drive for installation of Windows to the SSD.

Size Name: 96 GB Verified Purchase
I just got 2 of these when they went on sale and they were worth it for what I paid which was close to $1/GB.
I own one of the older 64GB Kingston SSD and it's barely large enough to hold Windows 7, with office, etc thus one of the reason's I had to replace the current SSD on my Windows machine which is already full.
The second SSD was for my Mac mini. Now the performance improvement there was astonishing since I can actually code and use programs without having to wait forever to open them. Safari for example used to take around 5 bounces to open but now opens instantly under 1 bounce in the dock! Even garageband which used to take the longest to open at around 15 bounces only takes around 5 now. It's like getting and entirely new machine on the Mac and is definitely worth it for that. And anyone knows that's used a Mac already know how fast they boot but under 10 seconds is ridiculous. I had to do a double take and actually watch my mac mini reboot since it was so fast I thought it never did a complete reboot in first place but it did!
On a side note a Florida Company Sues Apple Because OS X Boots Too Fast!
On a Windows machine if you already own a raptor or other 10,000 rpm drive like I used to before getting an SSD it's not that impressive of an upgrade. Window Experience Index is a 6.9 for this drive. HDTune gives around 211 MB/sec average transfer rate with 106MB/sec minimum and 224MB/sec maximum as you can see in the screenshots I took.
Yeah it boots up fast but if you are already using hibernation it's not a game changer and actually if you are used to the larger raptors it's actually annoying since you have to keep an eye on running low on disk space. With most programs you won't notice the difference in opening times of different applications like on the mac.

Size Name: 128 GB Verified Purchase
This is my sixth Kingston Solid State Drive (2 64GB, 3 96GB, and now a 128GB). All of the 96s and the 128 are V+100 models. I also have used one of the older IBM 40GB drives and a 160GB OCZ. I've found the IBM drives to be overpriced, and the OCZ was tossed in the trash after failing three times in its first week... Now for the Kingstons, all of them are running as boot drives, I've never had any failures on any of them after hundreds of hours of use, and have never been disappointed with their performance. At this point, I have no plans of trying any other brand and am planning on upgrading to the 256G model in my next desktop.

Pros: super fast, easy installation, good price, hasn't failed yet
Cons: Umm... doesn't make my coffee in the morning?

I bought this to replace the HDD in my Toshiba Portégé R835-P56x laptop. I'd installed a lot of hardware on desktop systems before, but never on a laptop. This was so easy! And the difference in performance was greater than any other upgrade I've ever done.

Now whenever I use someone else's computer, even when it has a faster CPU and more RAM than mine, it feels infuriatingly slow compared to my laptop!

I've been using it for over 4 months now without any problems, still as fast as ever.

Size Name: 96 GB Verified Purchase
I just installed this in a 6 year old Dell Dimension 3000 desktop to replace it's original 80GB drive and another 40GB drive (not full) that was at least twice as old. Both old drives had been spinning pretty much continuously since 2005 and still working fine, but I was starting to worry. Cloned my 80GB to this SSD using Clonezilla, added extended FAT32, Linux EXT3, and Linux swap partitions at the end and copied those off the 40GB drive. Now both old drives are out of the box and this little SSD is stuck in there (with velcro) using a Kingwin ADP-06 EIDE-to-SATA adapter. The only moving parts left are the fans and the CD drive!

Boots to WinXP desktop with Skype etc. up and running about 3 times faster. Everything loads very quickly (quiet and cool too.) A McAfee Virus Scan seems to run a lot faster. The only downside is that the Kingwin adapter's activity led (and thus the activity led on the front of the Dell) doesn't blink when this drive is accessed. So I added a little tray applet to take the place of the activity led.
