Specifications, Pricing and Availability


The red flags always start to go up anytime we start talking about SSDs and JMicron. The history with the two combined is long and not easily forgotten. JMicron has come a long way since their studdering days, but the name still raises the blood pressure a bit. The days of studdering have passed, but that doesn't mean their controllers are able to compete with the likes of Intel, SandForce, Marvell or in some cases, Indilinx. Because of this most JMicron drives are designated as budget or entry level SSDs and their price often reflects that.

Kingston's new SSDNow V Series is available in several different ways and in capacity sizes. Today we are going to cover the 128GB notebook bundle, but there is also a desktop bundle for users looking to mount their 2.5 inch form factor drive in a desktop 3.5" drive bay. The new V Series is available in 32, 64 and 128GB capacities.

When it comes to the cost, our 128GB Notebook Bundle sample can be found at Newegg for 274.99 today. Newegg also offers the Desktop Bundle for 279.00 and even a bare 128GB SSDNow V Series drive for 259.99.

Let's take a look at the packaging and see what you get with the V Series SNV425 Notebook Bundle.
