Now let’s see what this KINGSTON SSD have for us.

Benchmarks







Real World Test





Pros
  • TLC NAND
  • 3 Years Warranty
  • Great price

Cons
  • Write speed is slight less when compared with other 240GB SSD

Conclusion

Kingston SSDNow UV300 with TLC technology has shown a significantly high performance compared to old generation SSDs that too at a lower price. Considering it as a great increase in performance and OS boot speed to computers still having the traditional mechanical Hard-drives as system drives.

Only negative point we found was slight less write speed when compared with other 240GB SSD, but can easily overlook when price comparison comes in place.

With a price tag of Rs.5600 adding a 3 years warranty, Kingston UV300 240GB SSD can easily be recommended as a great performance upgrade on a budget PC segment.
