The drives offer a 1.5Gbps or 3Gbps SATA interface and will be available as either standalone or in upgrade bundle kits, with the latter offering cloning software, SATA and power cables and either a 3.5-inch hard drive mounting bracket in the desktop bundle, or an external enclosure in the notebook package to use the replaced hard drive as additional storage. In terms of power consumption the new V100 SSDs will use up 6.4W during operation and 1.0W at idle. All three have a life expectancy of 1 million hours mean time before failure (MTBF) and come with a three-year warranty.
The 64GB, 128GB and 256GB versions will set you back $120, $225 and $490, respectively, while you'll need to shell out an additional $10 if you're purchasing the notebook or desktop bundles.
