Hello, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support and would like to offer some clarification. Drives with firmware version 505 or 506 both meet advertised specifications. The firmware version has no bearing on the speed of the drive and drives typically ship with the latest firmware that has been qualified. All of our manufacturing facilities provide the same quality products and run at the same standards (http://www.kingston.com/us/company/facilities). If the drive is tested with ATTO Benchmark the speed results should meet or exceed advertised specifications which is officially 450MB/s read and write. Our KC300 SSD is 500MB/s write and 525MB/s read and our HyperX 3K is 450MB/s write and 540MB/s read. Feel free to contact us directly for more information or if there is any issue with the drive you received. Please call us at 1-800-435-0640 (USA and Canada only) M - F 6am - 6pm PT and I or another available Technician will assist you. Please be sure to have the part in question on hand when you call.

Thank you for selecting Kingston as your upgrade partner.

Hello John,
I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support and would like to offer some clarification. Our V300 Solid State Drive uses the LSI SandForce 2281 SATA 6GB/s controller and MLC NAND from various manufacturers. The performance target for these drives is 450MB/s Read and Write using ATTO 2.41 with the SSD connected to a SATA 3.0 / 6Gb port. The SandForce 2281 controllers also employ a feature called DuraWrite™. In simple terms, this enables data compression and minimizes the data written to the SSD. DuraWrite™ extends the drives endurance and overall drive life with a byproduct of increased performance. There are a number of benchmark utilities publicly available that you can use however we use ATTO Benchmark 2.41 which we feel best reflects a real world workload. ATTO is also easy to obtain and run from the utility's website. Other benchmarking utilities may use fully incompressible data as part of their standard workload. Incompressible data can negatively affect benchmark performance on both the read and write speeds of our V300 drive depending on which NAND we are using. This is irrespective of the firmware revision of the drive. If the results stated in your review are from another benchmark utility that uses incompressible data than it will not show our advertised speeds. If the drive you recieved is performing 70% slower using ATTO than we can set up a warranty replacement to get you a properly working drive. For any further assistance, please call us at 1-800-435-0640 (USA and Canada only) M - F 6am - 6pm PT and I or another available Technician will assist you. Please be sure to have the part in question on hand when you call.

Thank you for selecting Kingston as your upgrade partner.

Hello RK,
I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. We understand that not all benchmarking utilities, such as Crystal Disk Mark, provide consistent results with our V300 SSD. We designed the V300 to be a great entry level drive with a good mix of price and performance. To do that we source both synchronous and asynchronous NAND flash components for the V300 from various manufacturers. This in turn creates a delta in performance from build to build, while all meet our baseline fresh-out-of-box spec of 450-450MB/s in ATTO, some may exceed. All Kingston SSDs go through a rigorous qualification process which begins with qualifying the NAND flash components we use to ensure a high quality product. More details on our testing procedures available here: http://www.kingston.com/us/company/testing . If the drive is not performing as specified in our datasheet or you are unsatisfied with the working performance of the drive, please contact us and we will do our best to resolve the issue under our warranty, as detailed here: http://www.kingston.com/us/company/warranty . Please call us at 1-800-435-0640 (USA and Canada only) M - F 6am - 6pm PT and I or another available Technician will assist you. Please be sure to have the part in question on hand when you call.

As always, thank you for selecting Kingston as your upgrade partner.

Hello Nick,
I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support and would like to offer some clarification. NAND is a flash component while the LSI® SandForce® is the controller which has not changed. Due to NAND having a life span of 12-15 months with newer and smaller geometries being developed, over time the exact same NAND component becomes unavailable. What we ensure is that no matter the exact NAND used in the V300 is that it will meet our advertise specifications. The 450MB/s specification is found testing with ATTO which uses compressible data. We have also included incompressible data transfer rates found when testing with CyrstalDiskMark or AS SSD in our datasheet, found here: http://www.kingston.com/datasheets/sv300s3_us.pdf . Both the synchronous and asynchronous versions of the V300 will meet or exceed all of those specifications. For more information about the overall performance of the V300, please see out V300 Benchmark Brief: http://media.kingston.com/pdfs/SV300_Brief_US.pdf . For any further questions/concerns, please call us at 1-800-435-0640 (USA and Canada only) M - F 6am - 6pm PT and I or another available Technician will assist you.

Thank you for selecting Kingston as your upgrade partner.
