Kingston SSDNow V+ 128GB Solid State Drive Review

A little while ago we took a look at Kingston’s SSDNow V-Series 128GB solid state drive that was targeted at entry-level and mainstream users. Kingston had put out a V+ series drive which had better speeds and was targets at high-level users and corporate environments. Recently Kingston has developed a second-generation of the V+, which supports Windows 7 TRIM support, is available up to 512GB and provides faster performance over the previous version of the drive. Today we will be taking a look at the 128GB version of the drive.

    I read here about a second generation of V+ series. How can it be distinguished from the first V+ generation? I am not able to find anything about this second generation on Kingston's website. Is it about firmware? What firmware version does the tested unit have? This generation thing is rather confusing considering no difference in product name. The review here doesn't bother to tell something useful about this issue.

    According to the PR, the difference should be TRIM support and better performance. Of course, the package also has changed. http://www.kingston.com/anz/press/2010/product/

    REALY, I think the temps are too high. my PC runs at 23 C now a great cooler and fan with the case nto fit the 3 1/2 in slot, mightn br ideal. I ove fans and watercoolers, get out of the 1980ies and provide us customers with a more practical solid state HARD DRIVE with a cool 5 year replacement warrenty, heat kills all PCs and laptops.price is no problem if all is made correctly.(it's not impossible ) OK 🙂 an old builder of quality 🙂
