Solid state drive from Kingston almost touches a terabyte!

Mumbai, July 29, 2014: Solid state memory with its advantage of read/write  speed  over hard disks is fast catching up in capacity:  Memory products leader, Kingston,  is bringing the latest addition to the SSDNow V300 series, the V310 to India -- with nearly 1 terabyte of  capacity -- 960 GB to be exact.
The Kingston SSDNow V310 solid-state drive  is 10x faster than a 7200RPM hard-disk drive1 as a result of the Phison 3108 controller and 450MB/s read and write speeds2. With no moving mechanical parts, SSDNow V310 is shock-proof, uses less energy and stays cool making it more reliable and less likely to fail than standard hard-disk drives. The large capacity of the SSDNow V310 allows enough space for a true HDD replacement so users can migrate their entire hard drive over with storage to spare.
Says Nathan Su, Flash Memory Sales Director, APAC Region, Kingston: “Since 2009, our V ‘Value’ series solid-state drives have delivered the best price to performance ratio as possible to enable consumers on a budget or entry-level users to experience the benefits of SSD technology. Our new V310 continues that along with providing the biggest capacity ever in a Kingston SSD."
The SSDNow V310 drive will be available in India by the next month, either as a stand-alone drive or as all-in-one kits that include all the accessories needed plus software to clone files and OS to make for an easy install. Prices are not yet known.
