This is yet another Sandforce 2881 based SSD from Kingston, this time coupled with newer 19nm Nand flash. In terms of performance the V300 is nothing we haven't seen before with other Sandforce based SSDs. A side-by-side comparison with the HyperX shows that the two drives have a near identical performance profile which is more than a little disappointing given that the V300 is 16 months newer. With a sequential write speed of just 280 MB/s the V300 lags the group leaders by 62%, an expected result for a Sandforce based drive. To conclude, Kingston aren't offering anything new with the V300, consequently there are far faster (and cheaper) drives available elsewhere including the excellent Samsung Evo which is the current group leader. [Jan '14 SSDrivePro]
