What about "Kingston SSDNow V+"...?

Hi, Folks!

Maybe i could buy a "Kingston SSDNow V+ Series 64GB" drive for about 50 (+/-64$).
It's new and never served (to verify...)...

So,
1- what do you think about that device?
2- will i be able to mount it in my pc case (it seems to be planned to be used in a laptop but claws are furnished...)?

Thanks for any advise or comments...!

I have a V+ 128gb drive. Runs flawlessly. I got the bundle version which comes with easy-to-use brackets, and Acronis True Image 2010.

Ranks very high(5 eggs on 64gb, 4 eggs on 128gb) on NewEgg customer ratings.

Very good value, from a reputable company.


I'm getting a V+ 64 for my DAW this fall.

I have the 128GB "V" model, not the "V+" model, and it works extremely well. My Win7 Pro HP dv4 laptop boots to usability in under 25 seconds, so I don't bother with hibernation or standby anymore. My only complaint with the "V" model is that it seems to run a bit hot. If I recall correctly, the "V+" model runs on less power, so it might be cooler. Overall, I don't think I'll ever go back to a regular HDD in a laptop after being exposed to SSD!

Thank you jbarr!
Effectively i really enjoy to buy one... but for this time it's over...
It was a bid on Ebay Belgium and the last time i had a look the price was 140 yet! (177$).
Well, i just have to wait a little bit more, no matter!
