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.

Kingston SSD - old and new pcs fly

By ITGuy

from Midwest

Verified Buyer

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

THese are simply the best deal going. In the kit you get everything that you need. I have used several to update older laptops ( now win xp boots in 30 seconds), and in new pcs - WOW. the difference makes users just STARE. THe only laughable downside? After you put this in your PC, Everyone else's will seem pitifully slow. THe kit? Has the instructional video, bootable cloning software (Acronis - Really simple), cables, even an external holder for the older ( laptop) hard drive. For desktops - you will need to cable it up, but the difference is Jaw - Dropping!

Soild state drive

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

Found out that the drive in my system was failing. Started looking at replacement of that ATA drive. Long story short I ended up with this solid state drive. Smaller than I wanted at 240gb, but it was still a workable solution since it was to be my system disc.

Physically smaller than the drive being replaced it came with the brackets to fit the drive slot.

I was prepared to spend most of the day reinstalling windows and software.
Then I discovered a remarkable thing the drive came with a disc cloning package. So I added this drive to my system, rebooted the computer booting off the CD drive, followed the step by step directions. Within an hour I was up and going with the solid state drive as the primary drive.

The cloning software made the upgrade simple. The speed of the new drive is just amazing, I only wish I could replace the other drives on my network with solid state devices. Next time I need a drive I'll look at sold state first.

Kingston 240 KB Drive

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

Great product and service. Had Staples Tech install and very good service. They told me to upgrade to fix my driver/port problem with Windows8 and upgraded to Windows8.1 wich works more like Windows7. I give the product a great rating because it fixed my problems and works faster. Windows8 has all kinds of problems so I recommend the faster drive with Windows 8.1 upgrade.

Internal Harddrive

By Terri in Nac

Verified Buyer

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

The Kingston 240 GB V300 SSD SATA Upgrade Bundle Kit with adapter is a really good product for the price. It is easy to install and it is easy to operate. It is working great with my older hard drive that I am using as an internal storage drive. I don't notice any lag time or performance issues with the two different drives. I didn't use the case that comes with it so it can be an external drive and it was not the reason I bought this particular drive, but I did like the option. For the money it is a great product.

Great ssd kit

By bronzdragon

from Outside Philly

Verified Buyer

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

This is a great kit. It includes everything necessary to replace your hard drive with an SSD or as in my case, replace a smaller ssd boot drive. It includes various brackets and stabilizers, depending on where you're going to mount it in your case or laptop. It also includes a stripped down version of Acronis to copy your hard drive, including OS and programs, so that you don't have to reload everything.

All-in-all, I really liked this kit. It took just a few hours from beginning to end to install and copy, and have my unit back up and running. Just remember to follow the directions exactly. And always remember to keep a backup of documents, photos, videos, music etc....just incase things go wrong.
