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