Kingston SSDNow V300 120GB SSD

CDRLabs has published a review of the Kingston SSDNow V300 120GB SSD today for those of you interested. For comparison purposes, you can see our evaluation here.

This new solid state drive combines LSI's SandForce SF-2281 controller with Toshiba's 19nm MLC Toggle Mode NAND flash to deliver some surprisingly good performance. While rated at only 450 MB/s, the 120GB V300 was able to read at speeds as high as 585 MB/s and write at speeds in excess of 500 MB/s. It also exceeded expectations in our random write tests, delivering more than 80,000 IOPS at low queue depths."
