Product Description
Kingston Technology’s SSDNow V100 solid-state drive dramatically improves performance with impressive speeds. It makes any user more productive by speeding up boot times and application loads while removing hard drive crashes and failures.

SSDNow V100 is ideal for consumers or small businesses looking for an affordable way to extend the life of desktops or notebooks at a lower cost than a replacement system. It’s perfect for home users, freelance designers and photographers, video editors, researchers, administrators and educators, and anyone who travels for their job. It’s built with no moving parts to provide durability and reliability and to meet the needs of professionals in the office or on the road.

The switch to an SSD solution is made easy via upgrade kits for either notebook or desktop systems. The V100 kits include everything for installing the SSD such as cables, brackets (desktop only) and software to clone all the user’s key files — documents, movies, music, games — and OS in minutes. The notebook kit comes with an enclosure to repurpose the system’s old hard drive into extra storage via a USB port.

SSDNow is backed by a three-year warranty, live 24/7 tech support and legendary Kingston® reliability.

notebook kit seems better value with the enclosure if needed…249
didn't realise the 128gb one had such high write, assumed would be the same as 64gb

still far too expensive for the speed benefit for me.... i'd love one, but I'm going to wait for sensible prices!

true that the grail of £1 per Gig

I installed one of these in my Macbook and it's like a brand new machine now, best upgrade I've made. It also doesn't heat up as much as before. Recommended!

yeh I would love one aswel, HD is the slowest part of my rig, but cannot justify the pricing
