This SSD drive continues to please me each time I boot up or shut down. It allows me not quite enough time for a brief visit to the bathroom in the morning before it is awaiting my sign-in password. Its that quick.

Booting up & shutting down were not a real concern since switching to Windows 7. But now booting is FAST. I mean really fast. The system doesn't even have time to display the windows logo.

Essentially any activity that is disk speed dependent is much faster. How fast? One benchmarking program rates my fastest mechanic drive at 2.3 (most are 1.8); this drive is off the scales at 58.8. That's right, 58.8.

However, if an activity is constrained by other aspects of your system (such as graphics card or memory or another disk), you won't get much benefit.

The [explitive deleted]-ware bundled with this drive was from Acronis (one of the least competent software publishers I have ever had the dissatisfaction of working with). It failed on numerous tries to ready the disk, as did another program I use. But I had downloaded a full featured program called Reflect by Macrium (free) that successfully cloned my old hard disk. And in a short time after was good to go.

I consulted Kingston's tech support before purchase, and they were easy to reach & suggested the Reflect software.

My bundle came with a USB2 enclosure that facilitated cloning my old system disk. Alas, it is only USB 2.0 rather than 3, so the transfer isn't very fast.

Note that an SSD drive "wears out" thru successive erasing & re-writing. Thus, it is NOT advised as a data disk, or anything for which files are often changing. Since programs & windows files don't change often, it is suitable for a system disk.

Also, for those unaware, do NOT defragment an SSD drive, for exactly the reason just mentioned. The more things are written & erased, the sooner your drive will fail. And when it fails, it will be all-of-a-sudden and that-is-all-she-wrote.

I got to the last step and it would not install. I contacted customer support and the reply was "Unfortunately because this is not the full version of Acronis (included software) , some features are limited. Nonetheless there is another application that we have received good reviews on. With that said , please feel free to give Macrium Reflect a try." IE I can't help but maybe you can get help elsewhere. I am returning the product.

It's okay

Comments about Kingston 240GB V300 SSD SATA Upgrade Bundle Kit with Adapter:

I ended up getting this ssd because my laptop had stopped working and the tech had suggested that getting this new driver would be the same price as doing an install and diagnosis of what is wrong with laptop and it would make laptop work that much faster. I don't know that I have noticed that much of an increase in speed of the laptop. If it wasn't for the "special" they were offering I would not have purchased it. I guess time will tell if the other benefit of the ssd - that it will last longer than the regular hard drive will actually happen.

I was concerned when I purchased on how easy it would be to transfer OS and programs to the new drive but the setup was very easy to follow.

Comments about Kingston 240GB V300 SSD SATA Upgrade Bundle Kit with Adapter:

Laptop boots much, much faster. Navigation much faster. No worry about bouncing laptop and messing up hard drive. Did not use software that came with SSD, but used a program called "REDO" to transfer data from old hard drive to pocket drive, then back to new SSD with no problems.

SSD is a complete success

Comments about Kingston 240GB V300 SSD SATA Upgrade Bundle Kit with Adapter:

I deployed this in a client's notebook and migrated her data to this drive. The notebook is running faster now. I am a big fan of Solid State Drives. They have no moving parts, they generate less heat and they work. I have never had to replace a failed Solid State Drive.

I know I know I know, they are more expensive than the old fashioned magnetic drives. That is true. You're paying for a much more advanced technology. This is more reliable since it has no moving parts. It generates less heat. It just works.

The Kingstons are consistently competitive on the price front. I am a big fan and will buy more.
