When Kingston announced it's line of SSDNow V+ drives in October of 2009 we waited with baited breath to get our hands on the series. Now Kingston has refreshed the lineup with the SSDNow V and V+ series. Resigned with a Toshiba controller and Toshiba Nand Flash the drive we are looking at today boasts a 230MB/s read and a 180MB/s write speed. Previous versions had a Samsung controller and the new Toshiba controller and Nand MLC flash is expected to be faster and supports Trim out of the box in Windows 7.
Suitable applications include power users, system builders, system integrators and demanding corporate environments where efficiency and performance are important. With the results we've seen from the drives, they would boast a performance gain for any system not running a solid state drive.
