I cant wait for these things to get even cheaper, say half this price, then I will get one. They are totally quiet and faster than normal HDD.

Good price but these are very poor SSD's. Better to save a bit more for a good one.

Hi mate in what way is it very poor ive just bought one?.

Better off paying another £15 and get the Vertex 2 from Ebuyer. Posted here 2 days ago I think.
#5
BTW there is a SSD Now V and SSD Now V2. V2 is much better according to reviews.
#6
Kingston claims the V Series has a read speed of 100MB/s and a write speed of 80MB/s, which is relatively low compared to some of the crazy numbers we're seeing nowadays


Does seem relatively low in comparison to the one advertised on Ebuyer mentioned above. Worth paying the extra..
#7
I agree it is worth paying that little bit more this is not a fast ssd by anymeans.

Agreed, that was a great deal for a SSD.

I'm guessing he's referring to the speed at which they read and write data. Basically SSD's are more expensive than regular hard drives simply because they're meant to work faster for stuff like photoshop, operating systems or whatever task needs extra speed but if they aren't really that much faster they won't be worth the price. No idea of this ones read and write speed though.

Totally agree, The vertex is far superior.

OCUK have the patriot 60gb on offer at the moment too which has a sandforce controller.

Manufacturer part # SNV425-S2/64GB

Read = 200MB/sec, Write = 110MB/sec

TRIM support : YES

If you can afford £89 for the Vertex 2E then go for it. This isn't a poor SSD though, just not the fastest. (see edited comment)

ED : Changed this to show only specs.

A decent Kingston is actually > SNVP325-S2/64GB which is the V+ Series

Kingston are well known for making poor SSDs. They're cheap but you get what you pay for. But by all means don't take my word for it -

Self selected reviews. Those who would buy a SSD without research are the same people who are happy with their purchase when it does "fine."
#14
One of the worst SSD's money can buy. You'll feel robbed.
#15
SNV425-S2/64GB V Series (this one)

SNVP325-S2/64GB (V+ Series)

Therefore I admit my error :)
#17
To rebuff the know it alls. If you have a standard hard drive and stick one of these in you'll be amazed at the difference. Forget the on paper spec, these will slash your boot times, run silent and be far more robust than a mechanical drive.

I have the 128Gb version and it's a huge difference in real world performance compared to my old 10K Raptor. Applications open almost instantly. Love it!

absolutely the Vertex 2 which varies between 89-93 on scan. Its 2nd generation and much faster. they key selling point of these things is speed, hence why the Vertex is better.

Would love an ssd for my dell d420 which has an abysmally slow 4800rpm hard drive, but apparently I need a 1.8" PATA SSD. Has anyone come across any good deals for one of these? The costs I come up with are as much as I paid for the entire laptop! Which makes me wonder if it's worth upgrading the drive or just getting another laptop.

I read somewhere once that the drive controller chip which was installed for a non SSD drive would limit the performance of a newly installed ssd drive. Anyone know if there's any truth in that?

Voted Hot.

Good price for this drive, I have one, runs quick enough for everything I need!

(and I did some research before punting my hard earned cash on this)

My thoughts exactly. I'm surprised they've stayed so high in comparison to mechanical drives for so long. I guess were just spoiled with terabyte drives costing so little today, makes these SSD's look very pricey.

A nippy 128gb SSD for £50 is what will tempt me. I won't hold my breath.
#22
we could all wave our eDicks about stats, but this drive beats the fastest mechanical HDD in the tough tests, and tiddles all over them from a great hight in read tests, and is cheaper than other SSD drives in real tanginble hard currency £££ :)

http://www.anandtech.com/PCMARK Vantage HDD suit
Agility 2 Sandforce = 39314
Kingston SSDNow v = 25366
Raptor (fastest mechanical drive) = 7985

there may be faster, but this is cheap and will make a bloody good boot drive, I would stick this in a media pc as fast silent boot drive any day of the week.

mooncaller, there are a couple but the pata interface really limits performance, ebay has as few, I saw a review of something called Kingspec. seemed ok and the reviewer thought the interface was the limiting factor. seems to be a few reviews out there, good luck as its not a saturated market :(

But this drive is hardly 'cheap'. Why spend that much on a poor performing SSD when you can spend %15-20 more and get a LOT more performance for your money?
And lets be honest, most people looking to buy an SDD will have extra money to burn, so buying the Kingston really doesn't make any sense.

Also, you could go for the OCZ, but if I was buying now I'd opt for this -

My Samsung 128GB PB22-J is still serving me well, so wont be buying again for a whlie.
