SSD drives are expensive compared to standard platter disks but they give you performance that just can’t be matched.  The performance you get for application load times and Windows boot times is significant if you use an SSD drive as your Windows install drive or even as a secondary drive where you install your most commonly used application to that you want to load faster.  Many games will play faster, especially those that do a lot of read/write operations on a drive for caching…etc.

kingston 120gb ssd

In our 4th 10 Days of Giveaways contest we are going to give away a 120GB SSDNow 200V+ Drive from Kingston Technology.  Some fans may remember when we did a SSDNow 200 V+ Review in the spring and gave away a 90GB version of the same drive.

This drive rocks and I have since upgraded to using the 90GB version of this SSDNow drive from Kingston Technology and my primary boot drive and my boot times are measured in single digit seconds as a result.

Enter to win a Kingston SSDNow 200 V+

Contest Rules:  This contest is open to anyone anywhere, but if you live International you will be have to pay for shipping.  I will only pay shipping fees to U.S. and Canada.

    I want a new droid phone!

  • Dig the giveaway but PunchTab is throwing errors like crazy. Took a few attempts to get my entries wedged in there 🙂

    And I’ll be using this to breathe new life in my gaming Desktop and will use it with my Android HTC One X 🙂

  • michael joshua pabia

    Still the same question? I use a Motorola XT720. Upgraded it with 32gb memory so it would be nice if I can access it remotely.
    And, a kingston SSD would be a nice addition to my PC considering I still use a HDD as a boot drive 🙂 Thanks kingston for sponsoring and dragonblogger for hosting a nice event 🙂

    • I just realized when I cloned the contest the comment question wasn’t changed, thanks for pointing that out.

    Where and how do you announce the winnders man?

    • Winners will be contacted by email, they have 48 hours to confirm and claim prize. Once they do then I announce publicly in the widget (publish winners in Punchtab) and also on the DragonBloggerTech Facebook fanpage.

      • Can we edit the tweet (with custom link) to be shared? or should be retained AS IS?

        • I think when you tweet it is already using your custom link by default, I haven’t confirmed this though. You can try and see if it records the entry.

  • Sweet giveaway! Thanks Justin!
