Default New SSD

Hello

I just installed my new SSD. I know its not the fastest but I needed a large capacity and dont have alot of cash so I went with the Kingston 128GB SSDNow V Series SNV425-S2 Gen 2 SSD. I bought for about 10.00 more then the 80gb intel.

I ran a few benchmarks can you guys tell me if things look ok. I didnt disable anything in windows 7 64bit. specs are in my sig.

Kingston 128GB SSDNow V Series SNV425-S2 Gen 2 SSD



Thanks Ken

Benchmarks look about bang on. I had those same results pretty much with my Kingston 64GB V Series (2nd Gen) with AS SSD. You will enjoy it, but I couldn't resist anymore and picked up an Intel X25-M G2 80GB. The incredible random write/reads are what sold me on it. Definitely notice an improvement in everyday tasks. Enjoy the new SSD!

Yeah they look about right. AS results is a little low but the CDM numbers look to be in the right ballpark. :)

I made a few tweaks

Here are the new results. Not bad for a 128gb that cost 244.00. I have everything installed with 5 games and still have 30gb left.
