Kingston SSDNow V Series 30GB Boot Drive


Huge system speed boost for only $90.

The Kingston SSDNow V-Series 30GB Solid State Drive is a bit of an interesting animal. It continues in the confusing trend of having different internal architectures and successive technologies each sharing the same V moniker in Kingston's SSD lineup....

Kingston SSDNow V Series 30GB SNV125-S2BD/30GB


Kingston has scrapped the 40GB model in favor of a new 30GB product supporting TRIM and garbage collection. It is a worthy upgrade to the original boot drive.

By the time this review is posted, the drive will be available from a few different stores. You can check Amazon and Newegg right now to get a great deal on this just released product. While we think it is an excellent deal at the MSRP of $125 ($110 if...

The hard disk drive has always been a stalwart, if not a not-so-silent workhose. As long as it gets the job done, works, and gives us a reasonable assurance that our data isn't going to vanish into digital oblivion anytime soon, it just isn't thought...

Product Specifications

Adding an SSD to a desktop already using a standard hard disk drive is a smart and efficient way to upgrade. Transferring the operating system and applications from the HDD to the SSD allows the SSD to be used as a bootable drive that takes full advantage of the flash-based technology. For notebooks, SSDNow drives are a perfect replacement for hard drives resulting in faster, more reliable performance. Making this change will improve a notebook's efficiency in a wide range of tasks, from booting up to running the most robust operating system and demanding applications. SSDNow uses a standard SATA interface but, unlike a regular HDD, SSD is very rugged and built with no moving parts, making it ideal for power users and road warriors who push the limits of their notebooks. Other benefits include reduced power usage, less noise and less heat generation. SSDNow V Series drive helps organizations of all sizes and consumers enhance the performance of computers with a Serial ATA (SATA) interface. By improving a computer's performance and durability, SSDNow V Series drives help increase productivity, and extend the life of existing computers.
