Kingston SSD Now V+ 256GB Review
Today we have quite a pleasant surprise as Kingston have send us the full retain version of the SSD Now V+. Often we get the bare drive in some form of packaging so it's nice to get all the bells and whistles.
The box itself is very clean with the Kingston mascot head on one side and all the important information on the other.
Inside we have a marvel of compact design. Only an inch high and the size of a CD we are surprised at how much Kingston fit into the box.
We have the drive itself. A CD containing Acronis True Image software. A SATA to Molex adaptor. A SATA and USB cable. Two mounting brackets to allow the drive to be inserted into a 3.5" bay and a caddy should you wish to use it via the USB. Definitely a comprehensive package.
The V+ itself comes in the anti-static bag that all memory products come in and needs to be handled remembering that it's basically an enormous, and more complex, memory module. The housing is a textured aluminium that's finished in a very nice gun metal colour that suits most cases it'll find itself in.
As befits something costing the average of a fortnights full-time wage, the USB caddy is very well engineered with the SATA to USB mount fitting both easily, and snugly. There is nothing worse than either having to ram something in and fear breaking it, or have to find alternative methods to keep things tight. None of that is an issue with the Kingston.
With the lid in place it's very swish indeed. Onwards.
