Kingston SSDNow V+200 (120GB) Upgrade Kit

 

The Kingston SSDNow V+200 kit provides a no-nonsense—and almost too no-frills—way to upgrade your spinning drives to SSD speed.

Good write performance. Included accessory kit is a full-featured upgrade solution. Affordable.

Inconsistent read performance. Utilizes last-generation transfer technologies.

Revolutionised my laptop performance. I have a powerful laptop that was constrained by the hard disc performance so this both runs without any noise and is very rapid. (Can’t rate reliability yet)

I wouldn’t even bother trying to use the software it comes with. Macrium Reflect is free and much faster.
