Kingston Technology brings performance to ultra-portable with 1.8” SSD
Kingston Digital, Inc., the Flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, Inc. has released the Kingston SSDNow V+180 range, bringing the performance, endurance and productivity of solid state drives (SSD) to the 1.8” form factor.

Part of the second generation Kingston SSDNow V+ range, the Kingston SSDNow V+180 is designed for today’s ultra-mobile devices, and with road warriors in mind.

“Kingston Technology has listened to its customers, delivering the SSDNow V+180 Series,” explains Nathan Su, Flash Memory Sales Director, APAC Region, Kingston. “Enterprises, SMBs and consumers can upgrade their ultra-thin notebooks, netbooks, and even tablet PC’s with a 1.8” form factor to enjoy supercharged performance, enhanced endurance and boosted productivity.”

The company say its Kingston SSDNow can out-perform hard disk drives (HDD) by up to five times, enabling boot times up to 60 percent faster and allowing users to load, switch and run multiple applications at the same time more effectively. The Kingston SSDNow V+ Series is also up to eight times more shock-resistant than hard disk drives and because they have no moving parts, they are less prone to mechanical failures.

These new SSD can reach up to 230MB/sec. (read) and 180MB/sec. (write), with 128 MB onboard cache.

The Kingston SSDNow V+180 is available in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB capacities, with prices varying from NZ$325 (64 GB) to NZ$1395 (256GB).
