Further to this, Kingston states that both the new 512GB drive and existing smaller capacity models in the V+ series (256GB, 128GB and 64GB) now support Windows 7's TRIM feature using the latest firmware.

 

The new 512GB (SNVP325-S2B/512GB) drive is of course a 2.5-inch sized drive and uses MLC NAND flash and supports SATA 3 GB/s and USB 2.0. As shown below, you can also buy the drive in bundle form which includes cloning software plus a bunch of cables (SATA power and data cables + USB cable) as well as some 3.5-inch to 2.5-inch spacers for mounting the drive in a desktop PC and additionally, a 2.5-inch enclosure for portable use.
