Specifications, Pricing and Availability
Consumer SSDs have all shifted to MLC flash; this is one reason why they are starting to become so affordable compared to drives from three years ago. Kingston has released the V+100 in five capacities; 64GB, 96GB, 128GB, 265GB and a massive 512GB V+100 that anyone would be excited to own. Today we will focus on the 256GB model and in a few days publish a full review of the newly announced 96GB V+100.
Kingston claims a 230MB/s read speed and a 180MB/s write speed for the collection of V+100 products. These are slower speeds than the industry standard SandForce SF-1200 controller, but the V+100 has something that SandForce doesn't, industry leading garbage collection. It is the garbage collection that makes the Toshiba T6UG1XBG so desirable for any user not running Windows 7. The advanced collection technology will allow your Kingston V+100 to stay fast even when TRIM is not available.
The only area that we didn't like on the specifications and feature list is the price. At this time the 256GB drive we are looking at today with the upgrade kit costs 599.99 at Newegg at the time of writing. Newegg also carries a Kingston SSDNow V+100 bare drive version for 595.99, but most users should opt to spend the extra money to get the bundle pack.
Kingston has a three year warranty attached to the V+100 Series of SSDs and the bundle package is impressive as well. Let's move on and take a look at the package and bundle.
