Kingston Technology has announced the release of the SSDNow V100, which is the latest addition to the company’s SSDNow series of solid-state drives (SSD).
The Kingston SSDNow V100 expands the SSDNow line with the addition of a 256 GB capacity drive, with 64 GB and 128 GB capacities also available. These all feature an optimised controller and advanced NAND Flash technology to allow for increased read (up to 250 MB/s) as well as writing (up to 230 MB/s) performance.
“We are determined to stimulate the consumer upgrade market through Kingston’s various upgrade bundle kits, that provide cloning software and all of the accessories needed to advance one’s desktop or notebook PC from a hard-disk drive to an SSD,” said Grant Rau, business development manager, Kingston Technology South Africa.
“Our new SSDNow V100 drives do precisely that, as they represent the best value for an affordable upgrade solution, with a low price vs. performance ratio.”
The Kingston SSDNow V100 drives ship as either a stand-alone unit or as an upgrade bundle kit. Included with the desktop bundle kit is cloning software, cables (SATA data and power), as well as a 3.5″ hard drive mounting bracket and screws. Users will receive the SSD, cloning software and a 2.5″ external enclosure allowing the replaced hard drive to be used as extra storage if they opt for the notebook bundle.
Kingston SSDNow drives are backed by a three-year warranty and 24/7 live technical support. Pricing ranges from R1325 (incl. VAT) for the 64 GB 2.5″ V100 SATA SSD to R5799 (incl. VAT) for the 256 GB 2.5″ V100 SATA SSD notebook upgrade kit.
