Kingston SSDNow V 64GB £89.99 Delivered @ Ebuyer

This is Kingston’s latest generation of SSDNow V series drive giving all the performance gains and power consumption reductions of a new system, at a fraction of the price.
At up to 200 MB/s. the V series offers twice its predecessor’s read speeds, and adds outstanding write speeds of up to 110MB/s. Compatible with any SATA interface-based computer, they can quickly extend the life of an organisation’s systems.
With Windows 7 and TRIM support built in, plus legendary Kingston reliability, a three-year warranty and 24/7 tech support, they are an excellent low-cost way to improve productivity and reduce downtime.

Seems like a good price? I take it the speeds are good, and it supports TRIM. I dont know anything about SSDs, anyone care to throw some comments in?

I bought one of these the last time there was an ebuyer deal. It is slower than newer, more modern (and more expensive!) SSD's but compared to mechanical drives the difference in performance is night and day. My Win 7 load times went from several minutes to about 30-45 seconds to desktop. I've just ordered a 2nd one so I can raid 0

The drive itself is the 2nd generation version, not to be confused with the 1st gen which were non-TRIM and were rubbish. This one does support TRIM but there are no firmware updates. Basically at this price, you can't go wrong.

damn it .. i just bought 2 x 1tb drives to run in raid 0.

With this SSD, Ubuntu loads 2 minutes before I press the on button!

Price keeps changing between £89 and £99. Not sure what's going on :|

yeah, very odd that...

i think i'm tempted to get one to stick into my laptop... i;ve not got £90/100 spare though!!!

Will TRIM work in RAID?

only on drives with built in garbage disposal, not ones which use the windows 7 TRIM feature

I think that 64GB Crucial C300 SSD is a better deal.

trains might be faster, but you can't fit them in a laptop :p

It all depends if that extra minute of computer time is THAT important to you. Price per GB isn't worth it in my opinion.

Back to 89 now, must be because it got expired :-)

how do you tell which have it built in and which use win7? im using an ssd myself but i know **** all about them, im just winging it but i am impressed by the speed of these things. yes there expensive but so are plenty of things in life yet we still buy them
'IF' you have the cash spare then buy one now, you will be impressed. forget extra ram or cpu upgrades as these are the best upgrade you can do

why expire it, theres 54 instock at the quoted price ;)

This is a common error of thought, you don't buy an SSD solely to improve your boot times, you buy one to improve your overall operating system performance and application loading. When working with large projects in Photoshop for example you can easily save a couple hours in the course of a day, and that's no exaggeration. A decent SSD will save you time, something none of us can afford. Comparing price per GB between SSDs and HDs is a falsehood. SSDs are a performance upgrade whereas a hard drive is a storage upgrade, of which there still is a strong element of performance attached to it, but due to the physical differences HDs can't hope to match SSDs in performance terms.

The correct term is garbage collection. TRIM is not supported in RAID, you need a RAID controller that supports TRIM. Intel have one, it won't be on any or many motherboards currently. RAID 0 is used to improve performance, it also increases the risk of data loss, since it is anti-RAID as it doesn't support redundancy (look at the meaning of the acronym RAID). Windows 7 supports TRIM, it supports SSDs and it is the OS to use for SSDs if you use Windows. The following article explains Garbage Collection and how to choose a SSD and why you need one.

Good find. SSDprices getting lower all the time. Be tempted soon.....
#19
Just checking the model number and reviews of this SSD it uses a JMicron JMF618 controller, which appears to be decent enough. The questions regarding TRIM and Garbage Collection in relation to this drive are answered in the following article under the paragraph headed 'TRIM'.

http://www.pcper.com/article.php?aid=872&type=expert&pid=10

This is the 128GB model, however it uses the same controller as the 64GB model.


The price fluctuates because I believe Ebuyer use an automated system to change the prices within a range, based on popularity.
#20
ebuyer are notorious for posting their own deals here and also for changing prices 20 times a day! As soon as one sells they put the price up, no sales for a few minutes and they put the price down etc. This is not the conduct of a professional business but a shady corner salesman. Shame!
#21
£99.99 now :-(
#22
RAID TRIM will work if you use windows spanning (windows software raid 0) but not using a hardware controller will probably negate any extra performance you'd get anyway.
#23
I just don't get this I'm afraid. You can get a 2gb sata drive for about the same price. Is the difference in speed really worth the difference in size?

If you're happy with the speed of your 2Tb drive then stay with it.
For some tasks these flash drives can save a LOT of time so you'd get one of these for
'live' storage and use the 2Tb for archiving - well that's what I'll do when flash are a bit cheaper.

The point there though is you can still save and work as you go along. The benefits against price are very minimal. Loading PS takes, what?, 20 seconds? Saving huge files as you go along? You don't get a return for your outlay.

The loading and saving of large projects in PS can be shaved from a few minutes to literally seconds. The whole OS is considerably faster and this definitely saves time throughout the day. I certainly notice it the accumulated time at work where we've all changed to SSDs in RAID 0 (I did tell them not to do it, but they think performance is better than risk lol). If you've never tried it you won't be persuaded. Why not take a leap of faith? :)
