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.

Highly Recommended


With compressible data this drive exceeded its rated read and write transfer speeds by 50MB/s
Win7 loading time of 23 seconds with an overclocked i5 2500k
Fair pricing, at less than $1/GB
Included Acronis disk cloning software is very effective and simple to use


Poor, but expected sequential read/write performance with incompressible data
