Product Description

Capacity: 80 GB

Kingston's SSDNow M Series uses Intel solid state drives and delivers improved speed and performance to increase the productivity of power users. SSDNow M Series drives increase performance with impressive input and output operations per second (IOPS), a result of the drive's NAND Flash components and the powerful Native Command Queuing. With higher IOPS than a standard mechanical hard disk drive (HDD), SSDNow M Series allows for faster boot times and faster application loads than HDDs, ultimately making a power user more productive. SSD uses a standard hard disk drive interface but unlike an HDD, SSD is very rugged and can handle more shock because it's built with no moving parts. With its low write amplification and unique wear-leveling design for longer drive life, Kingston's SSDNow M Series can withstand greater shock than an HDD, making it an ideal solution for executives and road warriors who push the limits of their notebooks. Kingston's SSDNow M Series drives are equipped with S.M.A.R.T (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) to tell the user when a drive is about to fail.

Size: 80 GB Verified Purchase
I installed it on HP Mini311 instead of original 5400rpm Fujitsu. The installation process was a breeze except for absence of built-in CD drive on Mini311 which can be a problem unless the disk cloning software is present on the machine. The absence of CD drive is also a problem when doing firmware update, which is worked around by using USB flash drive. Another point is: nowhere in the manual it says to make sure that SATA Controller Drivers are compatible; for my machine Standard AHCI drivers worked well and I was finally able to run TRIM with Intel SSD Toolbox.

Overall, before an average user (such as myself) takes up on the "challenge" he should definitely collect ALL available info on the net.
As far as performance goes, the machine with weak processor (Atom N270 1.6 GHz) gains a lot by adding low power consumption/quick read and write SSD drive.
