Product Description

Renice K3VLAR E (K3 E) Solid State Drives bring the large capacity 240GB for 1.8" form factors to both Mac and PC while delivering blazing fast transfer speeds up to 120MB/s.

Renice - We Make it Better. Renice is committed to providing the best solutions in the SSD industry and goes the extra mile by sparing no cost on quality parts and cutting no corners on production. You may be asking yourself, why Renice? What makes the Renice K3VLAR series so reliable, so compatible, and so fast? Let us tell you...


Renice K3VLAR E series SSDs use Conformal Coating. Conformal Coating acts as a protection against moisture, dust, chemicals, and temperature extremes that if uncoated (non-protected) could result in a complete failure of the electronic system. Unlike our competition we go the extra mile to make sure our product does not break down on you ever. With conformal coating you can count on our SSD working for years to come and under extreme environmental conditions.


 Using a standard PATA driver, Renice K3VLAR E series drives support all major operating systems such as Windows9X/Me/NT/XP/CE/Vista/Windows7, Mac, Linux and Unix, Solaris, Vxworks. It is an ideal storage device for mobile PCs as well as notebook and desktop applications.


Renice K3VLAR E series SSD uses the native PATA EastWho EWS720 controller for top of the line speed and reliability. The EastWho controller provides fast read/write speed up to 120MB/90MB/s and 64MB of cache to insure seamless recall of commonly used data in your system.

Installation in 3 Easy Steps

If you want to increase the storage space in your computer and/or boost speeds without losing your personal setting and programs, you are in luck. With each SSD, Renice provides all the tools needed and simplifies the process to make it easy for anyone of any skill level to move your existing setup to your new Renice drive.

Each SSD includes a screwdriver, High Speed USB 2.0 HDD/SSD enclosure case and cable to clone your existing drive and turn it into an external USB drive. To clone your drive, follow these 3 easy steps:

  1. Put the Renice SSD into the provided USB case and plug it into an available USB port.
    You will be asked to initialize the Drive. Go ahead and do so.
  2. Run Acronis True Image (PC) or Carbon Copy Cloner (Mac) cloning software.
  3. Remove the SSD from the case, install the SSD in your computer, and enjoy - It's that easy!


"The Renice K3VLAR-E ZIF SSD offers a well balanced performance and power consumption profile at a surprisingly affordable price. I highly recommended it to anyone who has a ZIF-equipped ultraportable. It is easily my favorite ZIF SSD for value and features from all the ones tested so far in my HP 2510P."

I have been very happy with the Renice 60GB SSD. The install went flawlessly and did not take long at all. The quality seems excellent as it has performed for me every day for 60 days now. The real difference that sets this apart is the speed. It is very fast. Check out the read and write speeds before you waste your money on a SSD for an inherently slow PATA interface. I think you will end up with the Renice SSD. I got this primarily to pick up my speed on a small 1.33Ghz net book and to run Windows 7 better. My boot time, from power on to windows wallpaper screen, went from 80 seconds to 30 seconds. An added advantage is that it improves virtual RAM speeds by at least 8 or 10 times over the HDD I had in. My little netbook only holds 2GB of slow ram so this SSD really picked up the speed for tasks requiring large amounts of RAM. I was also very pleased with the price from My Digital Discount. I could find none lower. It took about 3 weeks to get the drive so dont plan on a ultra-fast delivery. I am very pleased as this drive took an underperforming netbook and made it faster than many desktops.
USB enclosure no so great

The SSD works, but the SSD enclosure doesn't work at all. The first thing I find out while trying to figure out why it wasn't working is that the USB enclosure is not recognized by Windows7. Then I test the enclosure under other OS, but it still didn't work. I know that the enclosure is an inexpensive bonus for the purchase of the SSD, but I purchased this item expecting to clone and switch the SSD right away, instead I end up reinstalling the OS from scratch and transferring my files using a portable hard drive. I'm ready to say that the SSD works great by itself, but I'm not happy that my old SSD will be useless, unless I buy another brand SSD enclosure for it.

MDD Note: This is the first we've heard of a Renice enclosure not recognizing. It sounds like an isolated incident and we'd be happy to exchange that for you.
