Easy to confuse this version with the previous Samsung one (short term issue only) ; Never lives up to its potential ; Still has early firmware

Kingston SSD NOW V+ Series 128GB Review

 

There's a lot more to picking the right SSD than there is to choosing a hard disk. Performance degradation, wear levelling, sequential read/write speed, random read/write speed, firmware updates, what operating system you're using and - most crucially...

With Toshiba having had 18 months on the SSD sidelines watching the competition learn and optimise their controllers, we were hoping for a solid showing. For the most part, we weren't disappointed

Kingston SSD NOW V+Series 64GB SSD review

 

, there's no denying that hard disk drives now hang a long way behind the solid state drive when it comes to performance. We know we've said it before, but the SSD truly has the potential to have the most palpable impact on your PC's performance since...

So, the V+ certainly shows it's stuff when it comes to performance, closely matching the and the throughout our battery of performance tests. However, performance isn't everything when it comes to SSDs: as they're still a relatively new technology,...

Kingston SSDNow V-Series (128GB)

 

While this solid state drive costs less than its competitors, its performance could be improved.

The Kingston SSDNow V-Series isn’t the fastest SSD on the market, but at ’49, it’s much less expensive than its competitors, and offers a significant improvement over 7,200-rpm hard drives. The bundled upgrade kit adds even more value, as it allows you...

Product Specifications

Kingston introduces its SSDNow V+ solid-state drive to help consumers and organizations of all sizes enhance the performance and lifecycle of computers that have a Serial ATA (SATA) interface. Faster and more reliable than a standard hard disk drive. Adding an SSD to a desktop already using a standard hard disk drive is a smart and efficient way to upgrade. Transferring the operating system and applications from the HDD to the SSD allows the SSD to be used as a bootable drive that takes full advantage of the Flash-based technology. The SSD and the HDD then co-exist to drive optimal performance in the upgraded desktop. For notebooks, SSDNow drives are a perfect replacement for hard drives resulting in faster, more reliable performance. Making this change will improve a notebook's efficiency in a wide range of tasks, from booting up to running the most robust operating system and demanding applications. SSDNow uses a standard SATA interface but, unlike a regular HDD, SSD is very rugged and built with no moving parts, making it ideal for power users and road warriors who push the limits of their notebooks. Other benefits include reduced power usage, less noise and less heat generation. Kingston's SSDNow V+ offers performance gains and power consumption reductions at a fraction of the cost of a new system.
