Kingston Launches SSDNow V+100 With 96GB

Another new SSD is rolling out, this time with Kingston having expanded its line of SSDNow drives with a new V+100 offering that ranges from 64GB to 512GB. There is also a new 96GB intermediary size for those who want something bigger than 96GB, but want to spend as little as possible.

The 64GB is $220, and for 50 percent more capacity, the 96GB model is $290. Prices get spendy from there, all the way to $1,900 for the 512GB.

While Windows 7 users can enjoy the speedy benefits of TRIM, those on older operating systems or Mac OS X will appreciate the V+100's garbage collection feature that is not OS dependent.

The V+100's drive performance is also faster than the previous generation, by around 25 percent, according to Kingston. We're looking  at a sequential speed of 230MB/sec. read and 180MB/sec. write.

"Kingston SSDNow drives have been extremely well received in the worldwide IT marketplace. Our customers have told us that they need an SSD solution that ideally sits both price- and capacity-wise between the 64GB and 128GB drives," said Ariel Perez, SSD business manager, Kingston. "The feedback through our innovative customer facing programs yielded the 96GB V+100 as the perfect solution to meet these needs, especially as an SSD upgrade path is the preferred execution model rather than spending more on a new system in most corporate environments."

    I always wanted something larger than 96gb. Maybe a 96gb will fit the bill :-)

    I can usually overlook spelling and grammatical errors, but come on Marcus, this is just careless!

    I know I'm not alone when I say that a 96gb will fit the bill when it's $1/gb or less ;)
