Kingston SSD upgrade kits

Kingston at the Computex show in Taiwan on Wednesday announced it has released the SSDNow V Series solid-state drive (SSD) upgrade bundles for desktop and notebook PCs, allowing users to swap out their hard disk drives or small-capacity SSD drives without losing any of their data. The bundles include the SSD itself, cloning software from Acronis, step-by-step instruction, a SATA data and power cable extenders and 3.5-inch mounting brackets and hardware in desktop bundles or a 2.5-inch USB external enclosure in the notebook bundle. The enclosure allows users to turn the hard drives they have just removed into external backups or else further storage.

The 2.5-inch SSDs feature up to 100MBps read speeds and 80MBps write speeds and are more shock resistant than traditional hard drives while drawing less power as they feature no moving parts. Bundles come in 64GB versions priced at $149, while 128GB versions cost $263.
