Kingston Digital, Inc., the Flash memory affiliate of Kingston
Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory
products, today announced it will ship its second generation SSDNow
V Series solid-state drive (SSD) on February 15. Targeted for
mainstream consumers and small and medium businesses, the new
Kingston(R) SSDNow V Series offers higher performance than its
predecessor and supports Windows(R) 7 TRIM functionality while
maintaining pricing. Capacities are 30GB, 64GB and 128GB and the drive
comes as a standalone unit or with a bundled solution for desktop or
notebook systems.

"Kingston has really increased the performance on the new second
generation SSDNow V Series drive without raising the price. A
first-generation SSDNow V Series 64GB bundle upgrade kit can be
found for about $150 (U.S.) at retailers and e-tailers so maintaining
pricing will be huge for our customers," said Ariel Perez, SSD business
manager, Kingston. "By bundling together all of the software, hardware
and step-by-step instructions with the drive, we make it easy for
everyday users to upgrade with an SSD. The addition of TRIM support is a
key benefit because it enables the SSD to maintain optimal performance
throughout its lifespan."

most efficient upgrade path to inject new life and performance into an
existing desktop or notebook PC. There is no need to reload the
operating system or do anything that would alter critical data files.
