If all this talk and hype of SSDs is getting you all warm and fuzzy about the idea of having one in your system, but the bucks required for a decent one is where you still become dismayed, Kingston may have answered your prayers.




It's been discovered that Kingston's new SSDNow V Series 40GB Boot Drive (based on Intel's 2nd gen 45nm SSD) is now available for a mere $85 MSRP. And unlike the first batch of V series SSDS which had highly underwhelming read and write rates, this V series offering is more like the V+ range with a 170MB/sec read rate, though its write rate is still left severely crippled at just 40MB/sec due to the use of just five MLC chips.


Check out a full review of it over at Legit Reviews as well as Cowcotland.


Further to that, both PC Perspective and Legit Reviews also talk about the new TRIM firmware for Intel's 34nm SSDs that's been released today.
