    HOT, looking for an SSD to upgrade my 4.5 year old rig.

    not bad. not amazing either though. got one a few months ago as a replacement for my faulty v200. it's definitely faster but the 4k iops are nowhere near specs and neither are the sequential read/write speeds IIRC the speeds I got were close to 350MB/s/ 280MB/s and 20-30K IOPS (at least one mine)

    Will I find a better SDD for under £100 or should I just go with this? So many specs and opinions it is hard to make a decision.

    So it seems from several threads that the numbers are off on most of the SSD's.

    Is the one posted in this thread better than this?

    It uses a SandForce SF-2281 controller, so performance is dictated by the make-up of the data that's being written (it performs a lot better with highly compressible data versus already compressed data).

    I need a couple of 250-256 SSD Drives.. I was hoping for a deal on a Samsung SSD but I haven't seen any for a couple of weeks.

    I have two of these drives in a RAID 1 mirror for my Windows 8 system disk.

    Here's a CrystalDiskMark test for 1GB of random test data averaged over 5 runs (this simulates typical performance figures) :

    And here's the same test for 1GB of 1's filled data averaged over 5 runs (this simulates the maximum performance figures) :

    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1409084/img/SV300S37A-120G-one-fill.png

    As you can see, the data used massively impacts what performance you'll get from this drive.

    Good deal. Only concern is ebuyer. On a recent kingston ebuyer deal, it emerged that ebuyer only give you part of your money back on a faulty item. The answer seems to be to deal with Kingston direct, but prospective buyers should be aware of this issue, and that it might be more of a hassle than normal

    Anyone know how to get Amazon match their price?
    oldcodger1
    Got one in my msi lappy.....runs fine and is certainly a big improvement on even a 7200 hitachi I was using......cant go much wrong for the price and anything that is supposedly better aint gonna be worth worrying about......

    The £100 is the magic mark for SSD, whilst £50 is the same for hdd.
    I did note from the reviews how much faster an SSD is depending on capacity and that larger means faster by significant amounts.

    Please note that these drives don't come with SATA cables or mounting brackets. It comes with a little riser but this is NOT a mounting bracket. I made the mistake of assuming that this was the case but it comes with no accessories what-so-ever in a blister package. So you might want to add a SATA cable to your order.

    In Kingstons defence when I had to return a V200+ and complained about the second failure from a batch of 4 I had they swiftly rang me and upgraded me to an enterprise class SSD with 5 year warranty. Only a few days after returning the faulty unit I had a new one. Was quite impressed with them... I would have been more impressed if the drive hadn't failed in the first place mind. ;)

    PS: Never bothered to speed test mine as it's on a SATAII interface only at the moment but it is already blindingly fast. It's so nice now using my systems with SSDs in would never go back to mechanical boot drives now.

    Thanks for the info. Would you still need to buy a 2.5" to 3.5" bracket for a desktop pc? Can I not just use the existing sata cable that plugs into my 3.5" HDD?

    My post was concerning ebuyer, not Kingston. Ebuyer should deal with any warrantly issues but only partially pay up. Do a search here for more info (a very recent ebuyer/ Kingston deal)

    It's up to you. I slid mine down the back of the HDD bays. It was a nice little place to stick it. They don't need to be mounted in any particular way and they're solid state so even if you move them whilst switched on nothing will happen. They use standard SATA cables so if you're replacing an existing drive then you have everything you need (minus the mounting bracket).
