Kingston SSDNow V+ 200 120GB Solid State Drive Review

Specifications, Pricing and Availability




Kingston's latest V+ 200 series comes to us in ten installments, each varying by capacity size and bundle options. The drives use the standard SandForce capacity schemes, 60GB, 120GB, 240GB and the largest 480GB. We'll cover the bundle options a little further down.


The SSDNow V+200 is one step down from the top in Kingston's business class product family. The KC100 rests at the top and uses the same SF-2281 controller, but pairs it with better synchronous flash. The SSDNow V+200 that we are looking at today uses asynchronous flash and as a result is slower when working with multimedia files. The asynchronous flash also lowers IOPS performance compared to the top tier KC100.


Newegg currently lists the SSDNow V+ 200 120GB model that we are looking at today for $149.99 with the premium upgrade bundle. For around $10 less you can purchase a drive only model, but we feel the upgrade bundle is worth the extra cost in almost all cases.




With the update bundle you receive a desktop adapter bracket, USB 3.0 enclosure, SATA, power and USB cables and well as disk migration software.
