Kingston SSDNow M series SNM125-S2/80GB

 

The Kingston SSDNow M series SNM125-S2/80GB solid-state hard drive is cool, quiet, fast -- and expensive.

Fast, cool and quiet

Very expensive, only 80GB

The Kingston SSDNow M series SNM125-S2/80GB is a small, cool, quiet and quick 2.5in solid-state hard drive that will fit into your laptop hard drive bay or mini-PC. Its has a very high cost per gigabyte, however, and a relatively low total storage...

Kingston SSDNow M series SNM125-S2/80GB

 

The Kingston SSDNow M series SNM125-S2/80GB solid state drive provides excellent performance for a 2.5in hard drive, but the very high cost and low 80GB capacity make it a very expensive storage option.

The bottom line is that it's a high price to pay for just 80GB of storage. But if you want very fast, small and reliable hard drive that stays cool, the Kingston SSDNow M series SNM125-S2/80GB solid-state drive is an excellent choice — if you can...

Gen 2 Intel, not Gen 1

 

Flash with Intel firmware at your own risk. I haven't done it to mine so I don't know for sure if it works. Reports are that it does though.

This drive is blazing quick and well worth every penny. #1 upgrade for your computer in my opinion. This is not a Gen 1 intel drive though, it is a Gen 2. BIOS and Windows 7 both recognize it as an intel SSDSA2M080G2xx drive. I don't know if it...

Stomps all other SSDs

 

Upgraded my Lenovo T61, Vista boots lightning quick, apps load quicker, gained some battery life. This is the easiest way to upgrade the performance of your laptop or desktop. PCMark scores went up 120% just by swapping the HDD for the Kingston SSD

wish my laptop can could do raid zero so I could stripe 2 of these. My gamer desktop is next.

VERY Impressive Drive

 

Once the prices come down, I can foresee switching out all of my company's PCs/Laptops to these drives for performance & reliability.

I have had several different SSD drives & finally got this one on a demo from Kingston. I must say that I was ready to give up on SSD altogether! On my brand new Lenovo x200 laptop with a 7.2k SATA drive, from the time I swiped my finger to login to...

It is still a bit on the small side (80gb) & the price (399 after rebate) is still too high to deploy.

Identical to Intel X25-M but less expensive

 

This drive is identical to the Intel X25-M. Kingston even posts the Intel X25-M spec sheet on their site as the spec sheet for this item, proving that they did nothing but slap a new label on it.

Identical to the 80GB Intel X25-M at a lower price point.

Still more expensive than other MLC drives.
