  1. Kingston has expanded their SSD range adding the SSDNow V+180 Series to the mix. This portable 1.8-inch line is designed for ultra-mobile devices, such as ultra-thin notebooks, netbooks and tablet PCs, while mirroring the read and write speed specs of the larger 2.5-inch SSDNow drives.

    Any idea what could be causing the mixed results on the Kingston? Those are some pretty wild swings in performance based on application that showed up during your testing.

    Really the same could be said about a number of the SSDs such as the ADATA S596 Turbo 32GB. When compared to the Intel X25-V 40GB the Kingston SSDNow V+180 64GB was only considerably faster in the application load test, 21.4% faster though this was less than 1 second. For the Winodws 7 load test it was 5.1% faster and the Multi-tasking test 6.5% faster.

    Each drive has its strength and weakness. The Kingston SSDNow V+180 seems to struggle with small random file writes.
