Is my SSD failing? Please help!



I bought this Kingston V300 120Gb 2 days ago. And 183mb/s is too low for this ssd since other user's benchmarks show more than 450. I use sata 3 6gb/s port and AHCI mode.

Please help me! Should i go for a RMA?

Edit: Retired block count is not 100, it is 0. Sorry about that :)

  1. Return it to the shop where you bought it. It should give you a brand new replacement unit.

    Thank you for advice.
    Why do you think that? Are you sure they will replace it?
  3. Yes, they'll replace it with a new one. Just tell them that it's defective and is slow on its read rate. Although that read rate is not that noticeable, and your system may be a factor on your speeds.

    I talked to Kingston amd they said different benchmarks will give different results. They asked me to run Atto and i had 500mb/s which is okay.
  5. Your system is a factor as I've said earlier ;)
