Kingston SSDNow V300 128GB  Solid State Drive Review


We have seem over the past year or so that the SSDNow series is aimed that the budget consumer. The one that wants the core essentials of a solid state drive without having to pay out the nose for it, this series from Kingston has been just that. Good to better performance at a price point that many believe wont broke the bank.

The V200+ was the latest of the series that we have had on the bench. Performance best not the best but it offers better than mechanical drive numbers (way better), great security as well as Kingston's repetition of quality. This drives has been a mainstay in our test benches for some time and still going strong.

The newest of the series will be the V300 which is now offered in 60GB, 120GB and the largest 240GB sizes. The heart of the drive is a LSI SandForce controller and new 19mm NAND modules all optimized for Kingston. But is it enough to top one of our favorites? We will soon see.
