This is the V+ 100 version, not the V-series or V+ 180 or V+ 100E (so confusing).

Toshiba controller.
Reviews look good.

Probably not Vortex 2E sort of performance, but it is quite a bit cheaper.

Note that this is the upgrade kit, so it includes a USB enclosure as well.

Review at Anandtech.
Slow random reads and writes but does well in other benchmarks so overall does better than expected given that handicap!

Only three in stock!!

I didn't pay much less than this for the 64GB V+ before Christmas.

Very good for a netbook, laptop or even a boot drive.

2 now, I just bought one!

Not even £1/GB?

Not even £1/GB?

And what is with performance on a similar level? Nothing.
You pay ~£90 for a similarly performing 60/64GB drive so by comparison this is cheap per GB.
#7
It has half again the capacity of offers about £30 less, but reads 15% slower, and writes 33% slower.

I think I would stick with a 64gig, transferring at about 280MB/s.

Its never going to be your main storage, and will only be used to speed your desk top machine or note/netbook - so why not buy a faster one at two thirds the capacity?
#8
People looking at 10% of performance and £/GB should remember any SSD will beat all spinning HDDs by a huge margin - very noticeable in real world usage (not just the oft quoted boot times).

Are you sure? As far as I can tell the 64GB one is also 230MB/s.

And also in actual usage I doubt you can see anything near 33% of speed difference, even compared to the popular Vortex 2E - but you very definitely see the difference in storage space.

This has aggressive garbage collection built in so is aimed at non TRIM operating systems like XP. If you have windows 7 there are faster better value SSD`s out there.

It's got a copy of the Acronis True Image, which allows you to mirror your existing hard drive to this. It's got an external USB enclosure plus cable, which facilitates the above. It's also got mounting brackets, so you can mount it in a standard desktop hard drive space, if you have a desktop rather than a laptop.

Yea a link would be welcome. I've seen faster, I've also seen better value, but not both at the same time on one drive.

Be careful - that is the V100, NOT the V+ 100.
