Testing was performed on both a laptop, as well as a desktop to show both environments that this SSD might face. The reasoning behind this is that a desktop will perform much differently than a laptop. To provide the most accurate testing of the product, below we listed the results form both. We also wanted to compare this drive to the fastest Hard Disk Drive, to show the differences in seek time, read speed, as well as write speed. Another notable thing about this SSD is that it supports the TRIM feature in Windows 7. This means that the drive will perform better and have a longer life. Now, without further adu, lets see what this drive has to offer

SSD Performance on XPS Laptop SSD Performance on Desktop

As you can see from the results above, the drive performs differently on different setups. Even with the limiting factors of the laptop, this Kingston SSDNow V+ is still able to break the 150MB/sec without breaking a sweat. With the desktop setup, this drive flys past 200MB/sec. The seek time is unmatched by any of the available drives that SiSoft can find on either system, meaning that your data is found much quicker than the other drives, and might even be displayed on your screen before the competition knows whats going on.
