Kingston Ships High Performance V+200 SSD Upgrade Solution

Kingston adds on to its SSDNow range with the SSDNow V+200.

Featuring the SATA 3.0 6Gbps SandForce SD-2281 processor, the SSDNow V+200 enables fast system start-up, rapid data access, and speedy copying of large files such as videos, presentations, and graphics illustrations. Available in 60GB, 90GB, 120GB, 240GB and 480GB capacities, these SSDs are the ideal upgrade solution for the business or home users who seek performance and value.

While still using the same popular SandForce controllers found on the more expensive HyperX SSD solutions, the V+200 SSD drives utilize asynchronous NAND memory as opposed to synchronous NAND on the premium HyperX SSD drives. Adding self-encrypting drive technology and the V+200 SSD is a more cost effective option for most performance seekers.
