Kingston 128GB SSDNow V+ 2.5" Solid State Drive Bundled Kit (SSD) - SNVP325-S2B/128GB
|Adding an SSD to a desktop already using a standard hard disk drive is a smart and efficient way to upgrade. Transferring the operating system and applications from the HDD to the SSD allows the SSD to be used as a bootable drive that takes full advantage of the Flash-based technology. The SSD and the HDD then co-exist to drive optimal performance in the upgraded desktop.
For notebooks, SSDNow drives are a perfect replacement for hard drives resulting in faster, more reliable performance. Making this change will improve a notebook's efficiency in a wide range of tasks, from booting up to running the most robust operating system and demanding applications.
SSDNow uses a standard SATA interface but, unlike a regular HDD, SSD is very rugged and built with no moving parts, making it ideal for power users and road warriors who push the limits of their notebooks. Other benefits include reduced power usage, less noise and less heat generation.
Kingston's SSDNow V+ offers performance gains and power consumption reductions at a fraction of the cost of a new system. For added peace of mind, they're backed by 24/7 tech support, a three-year warranty and legendary Kingston reliability.
Highly recommend this upgrade6/1/2011
Once I viewed a YouTube online video of how to attach the included rails, I was able to easily install this ssd drive into my HP m8100y desktop. The included cd containing the Acronis cloning software made for an easy transfer of files and changeover to the new ssd drive. The drive is noticeably faster than my old 7200 rpm sata drive. My WEI Windows 7 hard drive score went from 5.5 to 7.1! I highly recommend this upgrade. Not only does Windows 7 start up faster, but all my apps open almost instantly. I'm especially happy about Adobe Photo Elements Organizer's increased speed. I used to have to wait so long to tag photos that I played solitaire while I was waiting for it to find a tag. Now tags are found in seconds making it much easier to deal with my photos.
Even though the install disk did not list Windows 7, the drive installed without a problem. Changing drive C to the SSD was a no-brainer. And the result? Amazing speed when booting programs - especially true with photo manipulation programs, but equally great with all. With some programs, the screen comes up by the time your finger releases the key! Wonderful, wonderful! Enthusiastically recommended.
This is my first SSD and I'm super happy with it, I got a 7.1 in windows experience index which is very good. My programs now load before I click them ;)!! Very Very happy with this product, and thanks Buy.com for the fast shipping!!
