I’ve seen SandForce-based solid-state drives become very popular over the last couple of years. Prices have continued to drop and consumers are taking notice of the impressive overall system boost that SSDs can offer.
This drive is similar in configuration to the OCZ Agility, Corsair Series 3, ADATA S510 and Kingston Electra in that it uses async NAND. I have the performance upgrade kit which includes a USB 2.0 drive enclosure, cloning software, adapter plates to fit into a 3.5” bay, a USB cable,a SATA cable and a Molex-to-SATA power adapter.
Features and performance of the Kingston SSDNow V+200 120GB
The Kingston SSDNow V+200 120GB is a solid state drive (SSD) designed for use in desktop and laptop computers. It is a cost-effective and reliable storage solution. It delivers high performance, improved speed, and a faster boot-up time compared to traditional hard drives.
One of the standout features of the Kingston SSDNow V+200 120GB is its fast read and write speeds. With sequential read speeds of up to 450MB/s and write speeds of up to 450MB/s, this SSD offers a significant boost to overall system performance. Especially when it comes to booting up, loading applications, and transferring large files.
Another advantage of the V+200 120GB is its size, which makes it an ideal option for users with limited space in their desktop or laptop. The 120GB capacity is sufficient for storing the operating system and essential files, while still leaving room for additional storage.
The V+200 120GB is also designed to be durable and reliable, with no moving parts and a rugged casing that protects it from damage.
After using an SSD in your system, you’ll wonder how you ever survived without one previously. The speed boost is that significant.
The SandForce controller is indeed a force to be reckoned with, producing some outstanding performance results. Kingston has really done a great job of providing the consumer with a very high quality and fast drive with the best accessory package in the business. At a price of $190, it’s also very competitive. Excellent performance, great price. I love it.
As an added bonus, check back in a few days, I’ll be hooking up two of these in RAID 0. Think one is fast? Get ready for some eye-watering speed shortly.
