We all know the pains that come from reformatting a PC, but reformatting a notebook that is used daily and has several important functions is even more tiresome. Just a few weeks ago I needed to pull the Crucial C300 from my notebook to test a pair of the drives in RAID. Since I use my notebook almost exclusively these days, it was packed nearly full of images, email, internet short cuts, benchmark results from tested products and just about everything else you might find on your desktop.
Instead of backing up my data to another Notebook Backup March 2010 folder on the family NAS server, I chose to mirror the drive instead with software from Acronis. I used the Kingston Notebook Bundle to handle the transfer of data, a process that took a couple of hours since it needed to move over 200GB through the USB 2.0 port on my Lenovo T61p mobile workstation. Other than the amount of time involved, everything went very smooth, without issue and the results were as advertised.
The Kingston Notebook Bundle is part of a package that includes an external 2.5 inch form factor enclosure that connects to your system via USB 2.0. The package also comes with the USB cable needed as well as software and the most important part of the pack, a Kingston SSDNow solid state drive.
Last month we received the new Kingston SSDNow V Series 128GB Notebook Bundle and have been putting the system through its paces. This is Kingston's second generation V Series line of products that uses a JMicron controller. Let's take a look at the drive specifications first.
