Kingston SSDNow V+ Series 128Gb SSD

The SSDNow range of solid state drives from Kingston represent a good spread of drives, spanning both the value and performance spectrums. This incarnation has the V+ moniker which should elevate it over the standard V series. The V+ series is currently available in 64GB, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB formats but expect this range to increase once the technology takes of and becomes cheaper.

What’s the difference then? Well, according to Kingston, the V+ series of SSDs uses a different type of NAND flash memory, which we assume, just has much quicker access times. It is certainly quicker than the standard V drives, with Sequential Read and Write times almost twice as fast. The RAR Read time was also exceptional for a drive of this capacity.

The price at the time of writing for this SSD was £216, giving a cost per GB of £1.69, which is very reasonable for a drive of this speed.
