There is no disputing that the new SSD storage devices are the wave of the future, and Kingston has done a solid job of bringing a variety of these new products to the market. This SSD drive is geared for the mainstream user and even though itís still a bit pricey, it is well affordable to those who value the integrity of their information. The V series is not quite as fast as he M Series drives, but it also sells for a lot less therefore making it more affordable to the masses that want this type of media security, but do not have the finance to buy one of the faster more expensive units.
The V Series 128GB drives have a price of around $249.00 US, and this falls well behind the $400.00 drives that are circulating around at the moment. None of the rumored issues of the JMicron controller causing drive stuttering was seen here, and in all fairness JMicron has been making many firmware updates to correct any previous generation problems associated with SSD devices. Overall this is a very good product, that although a bit slower than some of the other SSDs we have tested, is still faster than any hard drive available and offers the same ruggedness as any other SSD. Also coming in at a price point of $249.00 at the time of this review gives it a broader appeal to those wanting the quality and secure storage of an SSD, but still have a limited budget. Not quite an Editorís Choice, but a Hot Product nonetheless.
