Kingston Digital, Inc., the Flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced its latest addition to the SSDNow V300 series, the V310.

The new SSDNow V310 is 10x faster than a 7200RPM hard-disk drive. Powered by a Phison 3108 controller, the drive achieves 450 MB/s read and write speeds. With no moving mechanical parts, SSDNow V310 is shock-proof, uses less energy and stays cool making it more reliable and less likely to fail than standard hard-disk drives. The large capacity of the SSDNow V310 allows enough space for a true HDD replacement so users can migrate their entire hard drive over with storage to spare.
