Conclusion:

The Kingston SSDNow V300 120GB solid state drive covered in this review has a respectable capacity of 120GB. Although marketed as a "notebook bundle kit," this SSD will perform just the same in either a desktop or notebook environment. The included Acronis True Image hard drive cloning software is certaintly worth paying a few extra dollars to have. Overall, the V300 exceeded its advertised compressible sequential read and write rating of 450MB/s - with benchmarks reading as high as 500MB/s. Incompressible transfer speeds did drop as expected, with sequential reads of 446MB/s and sequential writes at 144MB/s.

This notebook kit is available from Amazon.com for about $128, and from Newegg.com for $115, making your cost $0.96 per GB. Not too shabby. If you don't need the upgrade kit, the price for the drive from either store is right about $100!

As a 120GB SSD offering read and write transfer speeds of 450MB/s for just north of $100 (US), the Kingston SSDNow V300 120GB SSD receives the Bigbruin.com "Highly Recommended" award.
