The trend of product updates for the month of November seems to be continuing with Kingston Technology. Unlike other product updates or refreshes, Kingston’s new SSDNow V200 Series brings a lot more than minor updates to the market. This is no surprise when it comes to Kingston as they updated the high end of their SSD a few months back which also got a major overhaul.

This time around it is their entry level or value series that is getting a new engine. The new V200 Series is up to nearly 100% faster and 20% lower in cost than previous generation SSDNow V100 lineup. The Kingston SSDNow V200 Series will come in two varieties. The first is the stan alone drive and the second is an upgrade kit which contains items you will need for quick installation into an existing system. I personally prefer the Blue color from the Kingston HyperX SSD, but I could live with the gun metal gray as well.
