This makes your computer so much faster. When opening Outlook I barely see the opening screen before the email opens up. It used to display loading this and that, not now BAM it's up. COOL............... One thing I had to do was adjust the partions, for some reason it made my restore partion the same size as the data????

Files save at only 100MBps, an old controller chip design in this, but it does it's own "garbage collection"; you need that on Macs or Windows xP, since they don't offer the "TRIM" method to avoid file-save stuttering as the drive ages. Drive duplicator CD (Acronis TrueImage, name-brand PCs launch that from their SystemRestore HotKey) is easy to use. Your old drive can stay in the included USB2 shell when the swap is complete.

REVIEWS

Kudos to Kingston for recognizing a problem and dealing with it professionally, which is a rare commodity now days. The SSDNow V200 has made a successful comeback, and just plain works from the moment you plug it in. For those of you on a budget that are looking for an inexpensive way to get yourself in the SSD game, but still want a drive that performs as advertised, the Kingston SSDNow V200 deserves a serious look.Given that the Kingston SSDNow v200 has a terrific price, and performs as advertised or above, it’s easy to award it our Overclockers Tech Gold Award!

At the end of the day, the Kingston SSDNow V200 is a remarkable comeback story about an underdog SSD that was knocked out of the ring and came back like a champion. We'll refrain from making too many Rocky movie references, but this sequel is probably worth the price of admission ... particularly when you consider that Kingston is aggressively pricing the V200 with a MSRP that is "40 percent lower" than the original V200 and actual retail store prices expected to approach around $1 per GB.
As we mentioned near the beginning of this review, the 7mm V200 should be of particular interest to modern laptop owners since standard hard drives and SSDs that are 9.5mm thick can't fit inside many new notebooks and most Ultrabooks. In those cases a 7mm drive is your only option and the V200 with new firmware looks like a great choice.
We will keep an eye on the new V200 (and we're sure our discussion forum members will as well) to make sure there isn't an unusual performance drop over time, but at this point all indications are that the Kingston SSDNow V200 is a great SSD choice for notebook owners looking for a 7mm SSD upgrade.
Pros: One of the most affordable SSDs on the market; A great solution for people needing a 7mm SSD; Finally fixed with the new firmware!
Cons: As fast or faster than advertised but still not the fastest SSD on the market.
