|Matthew08||How much slower? I'm planning on using this to replace a way-too-small 60 GB Intel 330 SSD in my lenovo tablet|

|Dicka24||I used a $25 off $75 on the V300 a couple of weeks ago. Paid like $66 or something, plus 5% cb. One of those coupons should work on this if u use a $5 filler.|

I tested the data transfer speed for both drives with the HD Tune utility. SATAIII data transfer speed twice as fast as the SATAIIs. It probably has other intrinsic performance benefits other than the SATAIII interface that are not throttled by the Sata II interface.
Another benefit of a Solid state Drive, is it’s seek speed, how fast it can find the data want to read. This is really unrelated to the transfer speed constraints of the SATAII interface. They say that the computer with a SSD OS drive will boot much faster, and basic programs run faster

|MisterRunon||i don't know about other packages/kits, but the v300 i got last week was great.. comes with external 2.5 enclosure with plenty of other accessories|

|Knockknock_2||I just read that this drive causes problems in old MacBooks. Kingston guarantees sata II but not sata I. I'll guess I'll get the m4 or stick with a sata ii drive|

|Knockknock_2||Tempting for my daughter's old MacBook pro3,1 wich runs on sata I. (1.5gb/s) . This drive Sez it's compatible with sata II . Nothing about sata I . I know that the crucial m4 run ok on sata I. Anybody knows if it will be ok?|

Not a bad deal.
I do wonder all of this talk about sata II versus Sata III and extrapolating to some of the samsung 840 versus 840 pro.... basically I wonder how many people are looking at numbers and speeds of these drives and then installing them on SATA II boards.
I would guarantee you that some have spent the extra on a V300 or HyperX and put it on a Sata II board.

Bought this to go with my new Dell Outlet lappy.

V300 and V+200 use Sandforce 2281 controller.
V200 (without the +) uses Jmicron. I have heard of performance issues with it. Biggest problem is that Jmicron still can't get a handle on fast writes.
