Introduction

We’ve seen solid state drives become very popular over the last couple of years, as prices have continued to drop and consumers are taking notice of the impressive overall system boost that SSDs can offer. And we’ve looked at many SandForce 2281-based drives in particular, and have come away impressed.

Another in the list of SandForce SSDs is the latest from Kingston, the SSDNow V300. It’s not terribly different in most regards, but it does have Toshiba Toggle NAND and exclusive input from LSI directly to tweak the controller’s performance. Factor in a strong accessory package and a competitive price, and we have a drive that could prove very attractive to consumers looking for a massive speed boost over a traditional hard drive setup.

Let’s dive in and find out how the Kingston SSDNow V300 240GB fares.
