Solid State drives are definitely one of the hottest computer products in the market now. And every day it just feels like they are getting more affordable for consumers to buy them. As we all know with technology and time, products that were once expensive are much cheaper after a period of time. Not only are they cheaper, but they work a lot faster and better than their previous models. All the first gen SSDs really did not have much more read and write speeds faster than a normal hard drive. However, the increase in boot time was very attractive since there was no need for spin up time like original mechanical hard drive. Enthusiasts would use a 30 to 40 GB SSD to boot their computer and have a normal hard drive for storage. The only drawback was that there was not much longevity for the SSD since the free space left over was becoming smaller and smaller due to other extra files (windows update, internet cache, hidden files, etc…). This worked quite well until companies started focusing on increasing the size, speed, and integrity of these drives simultaneously.
Nowadays we can see 90-120 GB SSDs with amazing transfer rates, safety options, longer life times, and affordable prices. The product that I will be reviewing today is more on the business end since it comes with extra features to really protect the integrity of your information. But, it should be noted it’s still pretty affordable in terms of the price of SSDs. Kingston has come out with their SSDNow KC100 120GB SSD drive that blows away the competition. It’s fast, sleek, simple, and will definitely protect your information should your drive fail. Let’s take a look and see what comes inside the box of this amazing SSD.
