My System Specs

Default Benchmark of Kingston SSDNow V-Series

So I just picked up a Kingston SSDNow V-Series 128GB drive. This is the SNV425-S2BD/128GB.

I just cloned my old drive onto this one so it is vary far from a "clean install"

Here are the numbers I have gotten compared to my very old 200GB Maxtor.

HD Tach

Maxtor 200GB


Kingston SSD



CrystalDiskMark

Maxtor 200GB


Kingston SSD



Small File Transfer (1.31GB, 1892 files, 33 folders)

In seconds lower is better



Large File Transfer (Single 4.36GB .mkv file)

In seconds lower is better



File Transfers to Itself

In seconds, lower is better



Logon Time (Taken from moment password is entered until Everest splash screen goes away, last thing to finish loading)





So all in all one hell of a change and really not that bad performance for what could be called a value SSD drive. I know I'm pleased.

Adding another benchmark AS SSD, which has made me aware of an issue I have that looks like I will have to redo my OS anyways.

overall I'm impressed by those benches. That a good increase from the last generation, which I had up til a few weeks ago. I wouldn't hesitate recommending it to someone looking for a budget ssd.

They definitely are a great bang for your buck SSD. I too recommend them to peeps looking for an inexpensive yet good introductory SSD. :)

I'm going to redo those, most if not all of them, once I get the offset issue taken care of. Then I will be able to see how much of a difference it makes.

Oh and for those wondering the drive only cost me $272 and that was the desktop bundle with 2.5" to 3.5" adapter. Not too bad for a 128GB SSD.
