The Kingston SSDNow V100 256GB SSD
Here we get our first look at the Kingston SSDNow V100. 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.
Inside the case we found a thermal transfer pad on the Toshiba branded JM618 controller. The SSDNow V100 uses sixteen Toshiba 32nm flash modules - eight on each side.
On the opposite side we see the other eight Toshiba flash modules and a 64MB cache module made by MIRA. This is the first time we've seen MIRA in a SSD. At CES we talked to Toshiba and heard them talk about offering customers like Kingston a total Toshiba solution where the flash, cache and controller are all from Toshiba, but the V100 and V+100 both use cache from other manufacturers.
