Because the budget is tight for our non-profit I thought that an SSD drive and some extra memory would allow me to hang on to my Toshiba laptop for a couple more years. The drive installed as promised, quickly and easily. The transfer software was flawless - again; worked as advertised. IT took about an hour to transfer the data from my original 40 GB HDD to the 128 GB on the Solid state drive. I popped in two 2 GB memory sticks and the laptop is like a brand new unit. Boot time is much faster and since I travel a lot, I'm more comfortable knowing that there is no Hard drive whirring about a nanosecond away from disaster. Well worth the money!

-Nick Caruso quote

The SSD is a real screamer. It perked up my notebook computer just as I hoped. Windows cold start is now about 20 seconds compared to several minutes with the original hard drive. The only problem I had was an old version of the installation disk came with the new SSD drive. Kingston support was easy to get to and they provided a link to download a replacement installation app which worked. The install process is simple and well thought out. Great way to put some spunk in an old computer.

Product Overview

For more than 20 years, users have relied on Kingston Technology to help them save millions by extending the life of existing computers with memory upgrades. Now Kingston® introduces its second-generation SSDNow V Series drive to help organizations of all sizes and consumers enhance the performance of computers with a Serial ATA (SATA) interface and thus extend their lifecycle.

Adding a solid-state drive 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 solidstate drive to be used as a bootable drive that takes full advantage of the speed 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.

SSDNow V Series drives offer 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.
