Kingston SSDNow V300 Review

312801-kingston-ssdnow-v300-series-sv300s3d7-angleHey there! I just wanted to write a quick Kingston SSDNow V300 review because I just got it and it’s amazing!

The Kingston Ssdnow v300 series is Sandforce based (a first of its kind) and is available in 60GB, 120GB and 240GB variants with four upgrade options for each; bare drive, notebook upgrade, desktop upgrade and notebook-desktop combo upgrade. As is always of Kingston products, the drive is competitively priced. It incorporates Toshiba’s 19nm Toggle NAND, the latest in NAND technology.

The performance is pretty good and there are several accessories on offer (brackets, power cables, adaptor, external USB), especially with the notebook/ desktop upgrades which will make any customer happy. However the Sandforce somehow shows signs of slowing down so not very dependable when there’s a need for speed.

Though Kingston has priced it less than other well known drive brands, it needs to change its marketing strategy as the prices of other more efficient drives are falling as well. So for the same price, Kingston is not offering anything better.
