Innovative Design, Faster Speed
Kingston 5x Faster

Kingston demonstrates its 20-year leadership in design and innovation with the introduction of the SSDNow V Series Drive. Featuring a 2.5-inch form factor with flash memory components, the solid-state drive (SSD) uses NAND flash technology for storage, increasing your system's speed. And the convenient 2.5-inch size fits everywhere a regular hard drive does, including external enclosures.

With 128 GB of storage, the SSDNow V Series has plenty of capacity for today's demanding applications. Its Serial ATA interface, with data throughput up to 3.0 Gbps, launches programs and copies files rapidly, decreasing your wait time and increasing your productivity. Also, the drive's Trim Command feature enables read speeds of up to 200 MB/sec, and write speeds of up to 160 MB/sec. And for added piece of mind, support for Self-Monitoring Analysis Reporting Technology (SMART) alerts you to problems before they occur, so you get increased performance and reliability in one fast drive.

Upgrade Your Desktop

If you have a sluggish desktop system that needs an upgrade, the Kingston SSDNow V Series Drive is an ideal solution. Adding the drive to your desktop computer enables it to boot faster, utilizing the speed of its flash-based technology. And it works alongside your existing hard drive, optimizing its performance.

Extend the Life of Your Notebook

By upgrading your notebook to the SSDNow V Series Drive, you'll extend its life and get plenty of capacity to run today's powerful applications. You'll get the memory you need, decrease boot-up time, and increase your productivity. And with the drive's solid-state design, your notebook will run silently and operate cooler, using less power.

Greater Reliability than Traditional Drives

Most hard drives spin on a platter, making them susceptible to vibrations and sensitive to bumps, especially when you're on the go. The Kingston SSDNow V Series Drive is built with flash-based technology that uses no moving parts. The result is a rugged, durable, and more reliable notebook that runs faster and quieter.

Reduced Power Consumption

The Kingston SSDNow V Series not only increases performance--it also operates on less power while generating less heat, lessening its environmental impact. At a fraction of the cost of a new system, you'll save money and lower your energy consumption.

The SSDNow V Series Drive is backed by a three-year warranty.

Everything load so fast, it feels just like a new laptop.
htche
Boot time is well under 30 seconds to completion, even shorter to "usable desktop", shut down takes under 5 seconds.

As far as solid state drives go, this is one of the most reasonably priced SSD for the storage size and speed.

Size Name: 64GB
Rare that a product has so many winning benefits. My 2008 mid-range notebook is now getting up to 200MBs on sequential reads and 60MBs on sequential writes. That's a jump of 5x in read speed over the original HDD. The write speed is somewhat faster. Notebook now boots 3x faster. No more disk defragging for me, no more disk crashes, runs cooler and quieter. The only downside is living within the limits of this drive's capacity. You can always buy a larger SSD too.

The usual recommendation for an SSD is to buy one which supports the TRIM feature and use it with Windows 7. TRIM keeps a drive running at optimum speed. Yes, this drive supports TRIM. Very good. However, PCPerspective published an authoritative review on this drive questioning the commonly held notion that TRIM is a sine qua non feature when buying SSDs. Apparently, the drive's controller, a JMicron JMF618, has the smarts to keep the drive running at optimum speed without TRIM. If this is correct, it means that this drive can be coupled with non-TRIM operating systems such as Windows XP, Vista and RAID systems. A very radical claim indeed.

I strongly feel that SSDs are so fast and so much more reliable than a notebook's HDD that you really must buy one ASAP. You won't be disappointed. This is a very compelling SSD to buy because it has both TRIM and a superior drive controller. You can't go wrong.

Size Name: 64GB Verified Purchase
installed with AHCI mode enabled, fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit (goodbye Vista 64 you whore!). Installed latest video drivers (nvidia) and all recommended Microsoft updates. Turned off disk caching. Must be more tweaks to do but that's it for now. Supposedly win7 aligns itself for an ssd automatically...

Despite the small drive space and the problems that poses, and the slow write speeds reported by benchmarks, this SSD is a noticeable speed boost.

Overall system responsiveness is much smoother, snappy, and eerily quiet. No waiting for a crunchy hard drive! Everything works faster than before, even external hard drives! Windows snap open. Thumbnails of pictures load immediately. No file access lag opening photos, videos, etc. Again, this applies to the external USB and Firewire drives too. Weird. I don't know why this is, but I'll take it. Maybe it's because of the fresh Win7-64 install?

The Internets is fast on tap now.... using Chrome browser Web pages open immediately. Everything, Youtube, etc. Fast. (Comcast Cable connection). Youtube videos load and play super smooth, like an appliance!

I was using Vista 64 before, and in IDE mode (Western Digital 1TB Black), so maybe some of the differences are that Windows 7/AHCI is much faster. ?

My only complaint is that since this is still relatively new technology and there's still some sketchy details as to how to get the most performance (and longevity) from the drive (use IDE or AHCI mode, OS version, OS tweaks, etc) you have to research it and make the best semi-informed decisions how to set up the drive. Google is your friend. The installation Manuel that comes with the drive is not your friend. The manufacturer dodges the issues by making no mention whatsoever.

Kingston SSDNow V Series 128 GB SATA 3 GB/s 2.5- Inch Solid State Drive SNV425-S2/128GB

This is my first Solid State Drive purchase and a replacement for the Hitachi 500GB Travelstar SATA 7200 RPM in my MacBook (13-inch, Late 2009) - Model A1342 Polycarbonate Unibody. I based my purchase mostly on the Kingston Brand name and The low price ( I don't think I've sacrificed anything on that part ) I am very happy with the results of the upgrade and incredibly fast application load times that I'm now experiencing. Photoshop CS5, Aperture 3, iTunes 9 and Word 2008 just for a few examples are loading in just three seconds. Safari 5 page loading times have also increased ( All running under Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.4 and 4GB DDR3 CL7 PC3-8500 1066MHz of memory ).

I would highly recommend to anyone who wants a serious increase in hard drive and application performance to buy the Kingston SSDNow V Series 128 GB SATA 3 GB/s 2.5- Inch Solid State Drive SNV425-S2/128GB.

SPEEEEEED LOADER. :)

I own 3 kingston ssds this version is by far one of their fastest and reliable ssds. With speeds up to 240 reads 120writes its fast and the price is unbeatable by any other ssd manufacturer. Why pay more when you can't feel the difference in speed. Best price for the money

lot of highly detailed, elaborate reviews here, so I'm keeping this one short.

-- runs VERY fast, no delays in Win-7.
-- bought two of these Kingston drives so far, would definitely buy more in the future.
-- read in quite a few places ---> avoid running defragmentation on an SSD <---

Size Name: 64GB Verified Purchase
First, I have to say this is the first time I try an SSD. I purchased this drive to replace a 160 Gb Hitachi disk in my Acer Aspire One netbook. I thought that the performance increase, combined with the reduced noise, power consumption and heat, would easily justify the sacrifice of 100 Gb. Now I'm not sure.
The performance is better, especially when reading. This means that the netbook can return from hibernation in about 10 seconds, which is great. However, while you are normally using it, for example browsing, doing stuff in Office apps, this doesn't make any noticeable difference. Reduced noise: true, of course. I stopped hearing the clics of the Hitachi drive. Now I only hear the noise of the netbook's CPU fan.
In terms of heat generation, I don't notice any difference. The SSD gets warm, same as the hard drive gets warm. And in terms of power consumption, the only test I did to compare the SSD to the Hitachi drive yielded no improvement. Instead of 4 hours and 35 minutes, I got 4 hours and 20 minutes with the SSD.
All in all, I'm still happy with the increased read performance and the fact that the SSD is supposed to resist more due to the lack of precision moving parts, but my expectations where quite a bit higher, to be honest.

UPDATE 4/11/11: my "solid" state disk is not working anymore. It freezes Windows, doesn't reboot etc. It is broken, I guess :(
