Q: hello, i'm looking to upgrade to this SSD but have vista 32bit OS. can i install vista on this SSD? and if not can you suggest a SSD which i can install vista 32bit to? thanks
Answer by CCL on 8th August 2013
You would be able to install Vista to any SSD, however as TRIM is not supported on Vista you would also need to ensure you install the manufacturer's drivers for the SSD for it to work correctly. -MR

Q: Already have a Kingston V100 64Gb SSD...will this be faster and a worthy upgrade? To be used on a Core i5 2300 PC with 8Gb RAM and 1TB HDD for storage. Thanks.
Answer by CCL on 17th September 2012
This drive will perform faster than your existing one, as it had 250MB/Sec read and 145MB/S write, and of course has twice the capacity. -Danlevan

Answer by Website User on 11th November 2012
Thought I would help you clarify. Not only is the drive faster as it is next gen, the larger the memory on a SSD, the faster it performs. It works at almost a 2 fold level. A 120GB drive will be twice as fast as a 60GB drive. There are some excellent reviews online of benchmarks of SSD's.
