Crystal Disk Mark 3.0 is in the spotlight. Just a bit of background information; higher capacity drives tend to perform a little better in these tests. Although the Kingston SSDNow V300 120GB did not post earth shattering numbers in any of the results, it still remained very competitive against our large array of high performance solid state drives from various manufacturers. In this particular benchmark, the ability of a controller and flash memory to deliver high IOPS will provide huge benefits to the score. The SSDNow V300, in general, had a pretty strong performance margin over the company's own HyperX 120GB and V+200 120GB, as you can see in our graphs above.
