Kingston V300 240GB SSD Review

Conclusion:


Let us summarise the most important
positive and negative points below:

Positive:

  • Excellent operation as a system drive.
  • Very good sequential read/write speeds.
  • SATA 6Gbps support.
  • 7mm thick
  • Outstanding contents inside the package.
  • Good TRIM performance.
  • 3 year warranty.
  • Very affordable.

Negative:

  • None


To sum up, this is what I would say:

Kingston’s V300 might not be a ground
breaking drive in terms of pure performance, but it does manage to give very
high performance at an affordable price, and that’s something that you have to
take into serious consideration when you are looking for an upgrade drive. The
drive comes with a three year warranty, it uses LSI’s Sandforce controller, and
has the legendary Kingston built quality. Kingston has also done an outstanding
job with the contents of the package, as inside the box you will everything
that you need to make your upgrade go as smoothly as it can possibly be.

One thing that needs to be remembered is
the excellent performance that the drive was able to achieve, as the V300 SSD
showed a very steady and reliable performance even when it was pushed beyond
the limits that a normal user would put the drive through. Kingston’s V300 SSD shows
how you can manufacture a solid state drive that is not only well built but
also very reliable.

What about the price? Well if you live in
Greece you can get the V300 240GB SSD for only 159 Euros, and that is a very enticing starting price, amazon.co.uk list the drive at £150
and finally on amazon.de the drive starts at 163 Euros. Clearly we can see that
the Kingston V300 offers great value for money.

 

The parting sentence is:

“Kingston’s V300 might not be a ground
breaking drive in terms of pure performance, but it does manage to give very
high performance at an affordable price, and that’s something that you have to
take under serious consideration when you are looking for an upgrade drive.”  

I therefore give the ‘Very Good’ rating and
the “Editor’s choice” award to the Kingston V300 SSD.
