Now that we have taken a look at the Kingston SSDNow V Series SSD, we can get to the fun part: benchmarking. During the benchmarks, I will be running the Kingston SSD as my main boot drive and will be running a series of benchmarking programs that will give us a good idea of how the Kingston V Series SSD will perform. I will be comparing the drive against standard hard disk drives, allowing us to get a good idea of how this drive will perform compared to the hard drive that is already installed in your system.
