Kingston Technology has updated its SSDNow line of Flash-based hard drives, with new models offering capacities of up to 480GB in a standard 2.5in form factor.
The SSDNow V+200 line has been designed for both business and home users looking to upgrade their system and offers buyers a balance of increased performance and price, according to Kingston.
Storage capacities on offer are 60GB, 90GB, 120GB, 240GB and 480GB, with each available as a standalone unit, or as part of an upgrade kit to help users replace their old drive.
The upgrade kit includes cloning software to migrate the contents of the users' hard drive, cables and brackets for fitting into a desktop PC and a USB enclosure to allow laptop owners to continue to access their old hard drive.
Each drive has a Sata 3.0 6Gbits/s interface, supporting sequential read speeds up to 535MB/s and is backed by a three-year warranty.
"The SSDNow V+200 is equipped with all essential tools needed to extend the lifecycle and boost a system's performance to the maximum," said Krystian Jaroszynski, Kingston Technology Flash product marketing manager.
"The balance between performance and price makes this SSD deliver the best ROI as an upgrade for a fleet of corporate notebooks, desktops or the home PC."
Pricing starts at £77 for the 60GB standalone drive, while the same capacity is available as an upgrade kit for £85.
Meanwhile, the 480GB drive costs £535 as a standalone unit and £543 with the upgrade kit.
