I used this to replace my bosses hard drive in his new Lenovo laptop. It was a $2K laptop with a standard drive. But he filled that one up and decided he wanted a $500 SSD drive. This was the best deal I could find AND it has worked out perfectly. This drive is fast and has been trouble free so far. It's also added 10-15% battery life to the already long lived laptop. Definitely a great choice, even though pricey.

Product Overview

Kingston's new SSDNow V+ 180 in the 1.8 inch form factor is designed to address the Enterprise, SMB & Consumer needs regarding notebooks, sub-notebooks, tablet PC's & Netbook upgrades currently utilizing the 1.8 inch hard disk drive form factor.

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 micro 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+ 180 offers performance gains and power consumption reductions for those systems utilizing the 1.8 inch form factor storage device 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.
