Kingston V100 SSDs now out for mainstream users

Flash memory maker Kingston has just announced a new series of mainstream solid state drives in the SSDNow V100. The drives are available in 64, 128 and 256GB capacities, with all getting TRIM support and an optimized controller for high read and write performance of about 250MB per second and 230MB per second respectively on the top two capacities. The 64GB version has a 145MB per second write speed.

The 2.5-inch V100s use either a 1.5Gbps or 3Gbps SATA interface and will be available either as standalone or in upgrade bundle kits. The latter includes cloning software, SATA and power cables, and a 3.5-inch hard drive mounting bracket. A notebook bundle has a 2.5-inch external enclosure for the old drive and cloning software.

Price is a cornerstone of the drives. The 64GB V100 has a street price of $120, the 128GB $225 and the 256GB $490. The notebook or desktop bundles add $10 to the price of each.
