Kingston SSDnow v100 64 GB, for OS

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Would it be a good idea to just install the OS on this drive and run everything else from normal drives? Would a 64 bit win 7 even fit with all the updates? Is the drive itself any good, I mean, you can always trust Kingston, but perhaps there are better models at the same price point out there?

yeah it will fit, 64gb ocz vertex 2 is good too. (i think it has little better speeds than that kingston ssd)
It cost 120 euros in here Finland.
Kingston is too very good choise,im going to buy ssd too and install my win 7 to it.
But you cant install more games than 3 or 4 to that becose 64gb is little amount of space.
It will be good idea if ur installing windows and other smaller softwares to it. so overall it will be good choice for smaller softwares,and install games to ur hdd.
But in future u can buy second kingston or vertex and raid0 them, and then u have 128 gb

I'm using that very SSD in my sig rig. It works awesome! I have OpenOffice on the SSD, as well as any program that loads/runs slow normally, and even a game every now and then. I did move my pagefile OFF the SSD, and put it on one of my platter drives. I got mine on sale at NewEgg.com a while ago for under $100 and I have been extremely happy with it.

Do not defrag it and don't benchmark it very much and it will last you a long time. Had mine for about a year so far. Don't forget to update the firmware before installing the OS on it and you will wonder how you got thru life without an SSD before!

Oh, before I forget - I also disabled indexing on my SSD to extend its lifespan.

EDIT - ok, sorry I'm not using the v100 from Kingston. I'm using the SSDNow V+ Series. Still, they seem pretty similar in price and performance from what I can tell.
