The Kingston SSDNow V+100 256GB SSD
Here we get our first look at the Kingston SSDNow V+100. The drive is heavier than it looks; a testament to the quality of the aluminum case that holds the PCB. The top label includes the drive's capacity and model number.
The back of the drive is fairly straight forward with all of the mounting points located where they should be.
The side mounting points are also located within spec, so you won't have any problems installing the drive in a desktop adapter or notebook drive sled.
On the back we found the SATA power and data connectors also where they should be.
On the inside we found a large thermal transfer pad covering the entire surface mount component side of the drive. This allows the drive to withstand a higher shock than drives without the extra protection and also aids to pull heat from the components.
The Kingston SSDNow V+100 uses the Toshiba controller and pairs it with Toshiba flash. A 128MB Micron cache module is also used on the V+100 and acts as a buffer so the drive doesn't stutter when writing data.
The back of the PCB is pretty bare and void of components. There is an identifying sticker for use by Kingston, but that is about all on this side.
