Kingston ships its next-gen SSDNow V300 series of solid state drives, which is targeted at cost-conscious consumers who are looking to upgrade their existing desktop or notebook PC. The new V300 is based on 19nm NAND flash memory and is powered by a customized LSI SandForce controller for enhanced performance of up to 450MB/s sequential read and write speeds. Kinston says the new SSD is 10x faster than a 7200RPM hard drive.
The 2.5-inch SSDNow V300 uses SATA III 6Gbps interface and is available in 60GB, 120GB and 240GB capacities. Other than standalone drives, the V300 is also available with notebook upgrade kit or desktop upgrade kit or both. The desktop upgrade kit includes a 3.5-inch bracket and monuting screws and SATA and power cables, while the notebook kit has a 2.5-inch USB enclosure and a 7mm to 9.5mm adapter. The desktop/notebook upgrade kit will includes items from both kits. All kits will include hard drive cloning software.
