[Affiliates News] Kingston SSDNow V+200 120GB S  olid State Drive Review @ APH - PCSTATS.com [Affiliates News] Kingston SSDNow V+200 120GB S olid State Drive Review @ APH

SSDs are quite pointless, my friend said before the beginning of our Engineering Economics lecture last semester. They don`t do anything besides improving your boot time. Programs don`t load that much faster compared to a 7200RPM hard drive. Of course, as with most people who actually own an SSD, this is a statement you cannot resist to argue with. That`s like saying a Ferrari is not much better than a Honda Civic. Sure, you can run better 0-60 times, but other than that, you`ll be driving close to the speed limit most of the time anyway. So while I am not here today to make an argument as to why it is so awesome to own an SSD, I am here to make an argument as to why it is so awesome to own -- keep reading -- two SSDs. Kingston`s first SandForce SF-2281 based Kingston HyperX SSD is nothing short of impressive; combining the renowned controller with a set of high performance Intel NAND flash chips for some very impressive numbers across the board. But the story does not end here. So today, we will take a look at Kingston`s SSDNow V+200 120GB SSD. Don`t get confused with the SSDNow V200; the little `+` after the `V` makes all the difference. This business oriented product, like the HyperX enthusiast drive, features a SF-2281 under the hood, along with a renewed focus on value. So how does it step up against the competition? Of course, we will have our usual battery of benchmarks in single disk configuration. But since the good people at Kingston sent over two of their 120GB drives for our review today, what`s stopping us from some RAID 0 action?"

You do software updates to get the most from favourite programs right? Updating a motherboard BIOS can in a timely manner is also critical. The guide to Flashing a Motherboard BIOS spells out the often complicated steps in plain english. PCSTATS Tips
