Kingston SSDNow V+ Series SNVP325-S2B/128GB for 200?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have the opportunity to buy this Kingston ssd for $200, is that a good deal? I would be putting the drive in the second bay on my M17X R2, would this be a good match for that?

The Kingston V+ isn't a bad drive, but you could get better drives for a similar price. The A-Data S599 ($199.99 after MIR) or Vertex II ($189.99 after MIR), for example.

Here is a comparison of the Vertex II and the Kingston V+. The S599 and Vertex II are very similar drives, so I would expect the results to be the same if you were comparing the S599 and Kingston V+.

The drive is part of a trade on craigslist, I'm taking about 175-200 off of an iPad for it, does that sound like a decent enough deal?

The OCZ wouldn't work as it's a 3.5" drive. I actually have the kingston you linked to on my computer and I'd say theres nothing wrong with it. Adata one linked above does seem like a better deal.

Edit: for a used drive?!??

Not really a good deal... that drive is worth $160-170 when compared to other 120GB SSDs.
Once again...
