Dear Customer

We understand that not all bench-marking utilities provide consistent results with our V300 SSD. This is caused by differences in the behaviour of the MLC NAND flash component that may be used in the SSD and differences in the workload used by the bench-marking utilities. All V300s are designed with the LSI SandForce 2281 SATA 6GB/s controller and should reach our out-of-box advertised read/write speed of 450MB/s in a SATAIII (6Gbps) port in AHCI mode tested with ATTO Benchmark 2.41.

We are here to help and would like to have a more direct discussion about the issues experienced with the V300 SSD.

Please contact our Technical Support team in order for us to collect further details about your experience with the V300 SSD.

Please email us at

eu_technical@kingston.eu

so that we can find a mutually acceptable resolution.

Your Kingston Tech Support

you have to take into consideration what your plugging the ssd into. If its a laptop most likely it will have SATA 2 which is limited to 300mb/s which will limit the ssd to around the 175mb you said. To get stated ssd's is difficult due the technology being so new, the controller chips keep changing so the hardware around it can fully utilise the speeds yet. You could try other products with a different controller, but with SSD's you really need to do your research on it.

Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed.
