Specifications, Availability and Pricing
As mentioned in the intro, the SSDNow V+ Series has three capacities, 64, 128 and 256GB. The entire series all receive a 3 year warranty and a 220MB/s read speed rating and use MLC NAND flash memory. Write speeds for the three capacities are different; the 64GB drive that we are testing here today has an SWT of only 140MB/s, but the 256GB model goes all the way up to 180 MB/s.
The V+ Series also has a wide IOPS rating. The 64GB drive is able to achieve 84 IOPS while the 256GB model is rated at an incredible 291 IOPS in random 4K writes. Obviously this is a huge difference in rated speeds that should be explored when the opportunity is available.
Not listed in the specifications is the self-healing feature that will be a big attraction for enthusiasts looking to replace desktop boot drives with a pair of V+ Series drives in RAID arrays.
Of course price plays a big role and at the time of writing the V+ Series has yet to be listed by Newegg or other reputable e-tailers. Since the V Series is the lowest cost SSD line on the market, I can only cross my fingers and hope that Kingston was able to follow up with another low cost product line.
