Kingston release budget SSD with 40GB SSDnow V series

We all love SSD’s, some of us rich enough even own one and use it as a boot drive. Until recently however SSD’s have been out reach of the average consumer – very shortly however that might change with the release of the new Kingston drive.

While the old SSDNow V Series range features a JMicron controller this new one is based on Intel’s second generation controller and 34nm NAND flash technology. We reviewed this drive a while ago and it was capable of stunning performance.

The new drive Kingston are selling suffers considerably when compared to the larger Intel drive by offering around 170mb/s read and 40 mb/s write. However as boot times are mainly based around the read performance this will be considerably faster than any mechanical drive available on the market, unless you decided to Raid two Velicoraptors.

The amazing thing however is the price. Kingston are offering the drive on its own On November 9th for £71.27 which puts it firmly into the ‘absolutely affordable’ bracket, even for those on a tighter budget.
