Kingston is a name that people may think of when discussing memory. They have many years of experience in developing high quality system memory and flash memory devices, and they have now become a serious player in the solid state drive (SSD) market, as well. They offer SSDs for a variety of budgets and performance levels, but gained a good deal of attention with their value (SSDNow V and V+ Series) drives. This review is going to focus on a newer product in the V+ Series, the 128GB SSDNow V+ Series Performance Upgrade Kit.
