This is a great product.. or should I say could be a great product. Kingston is dead last in SSD support among the major manufacturers in my opinion. Go with the intel equivalent (X25-V) and never look back, the extra $10-$20 is well worth it. Kingston said trim firmware would be released for this drive and for the V+ line...ask them via email and you will find out that is probably not going to happen. I will repeat it again, BUY THE INTEL X25-V!! and you will not have to deal with Kingstons lack of support. Don't believe me? Go to their website and look at the support site for SSD's....no usable info and not even a forum to discuss issues. Absolutely horrid customer support!

PRO: affordable/speed ratio. is silly but this is feel and performs faster than my corsair p256 that i had on my desktop. i am running this drive on my e6500 dell laptop. i basically installed windows 7 64bit ultimate and then start adding all my apps to the startup folder, logged off and then back in and they launch like superfast and within seconds its done loading all my apps.

CON: slow write but still feels faster than my corsair p256. no trim support.... yet.

P.S.

this drive is rated 170MB read and 40MB write. but i ran benchmark with hddtune and was able to achieve 205MB read. i did not run write test because i'm using the free version of hdtune.

Pro: fast reads, Intel quality

Cons:
1. the Kingston TRIM carrot is imaginary. Despite being a rebadged Intel drive, "..there is no TRIM support for this drive and there is no update available for it. Our next generation SSD drives will have TRIM support."

2. Kingston support (try opening a service request using Kingston's website, you'd have to guess the correct product part number before you can submit the support request form).

Slow sequential write throughput (but this is not a surprise given this is 1/2 of an 80GB x25-m) - application start-up time on both Linux/Windows have greatly improved and *this* is what you'll probably most often.

I would recommend the X25-V over this one - it's only slightly more expensive but it comes with better support, TRIM and the 2.5" to 3.5" adapter.

I purchased Kingston 40 GB SSDNow V-Series Solid State Drive (SSD) SNV125-S2/40GB for a new netbook and have been impressed with its performance so far. It close to doubled the Windows 7 performance index over the hard drive that was installed and has made resuming from stand by a quick process. Installation was straight-forward and it quick to get everything loaded up and running.
