By on February 10, 2010, 5:14 PM
Hot on the heels of the recently launched enthusiast-minded SSDNow V+ SSDs, Kingston has introduced a more wallet-friendly series. Like the pricier drives released two weeks back, the second-generation SSDNow V also ships with TRIM support.

The SSDNow V is available in 30GB, 64GB, and 128GB capacities, and there are three packages: one for notebooks, one for desktops, and just the standalone drive. Both bundles receive Acronis cloning software and the desktop kit gets 3.5-inch mounting brackets as well as SATA and power extension cables, while the notebook pack has an external 2.5-inch USB SATA enclosure.


All of the drives conform to 2.5-inch form factor standards, use 300MB/s SATA, and come with a three-year warranty. The 30GB drive kicks off with a price of $109.99 (standalone) or $124.99 for a bundle with speeds of 180MB/s and 50MB/s read/write. The 64GB jumps to $208 or $216 with read/write rates of 200MB/s and 110MB/s, and the 128GB is $362 or $377 with a 200MB/s and 160MB/s read/write.
