Kingston SSDNow V310 960GB SSD Announced – See Features and Specifications

Share this:

Kingston has recently announced a new SSD variant in addition to their SSDNow V300 series – the Kingston SSDNow V310 SSD. The V310 is said to boosts the speed and responsiveness of a system, at the same time offering a much larger capacity of 960GB (near 1TB), allowing you to migrate an entire hard drive with capacities below 1TB. Check out the rest of its features and specifications below.

Kingston SSDNow V310 SSD Features

The new SSDNow V310 is 10x faster than a 7200RPM hard-disk drive as a result of the Phison 3108 controller and 450MB/s read and write speeds. With no moving mechanical parts, SSDNow V310 is shock-proof, uses less energy and stays cool making it more reliable and less likely to fail than standard hard-disk drives. The large capacity of the SSDNow V310 allows enough space for a true HDD replacement so users can migrate their entire hard drive over with storage to spare.

According to Nathan Su, Flash Memory Sales Director, APAC Region, Kingston: “Since 2009, our V ‘Value’ series solid-state drives have delivered the best price to performance ratio as possible to enable consumers on a budget or entry-level users to experience the benefits of SSD technology. Our new V310 continues that along with providing the biggest capacity ever in a Kingston SSD,”. “SSDNow V310 with its large 960GB capacity is the perfect upgrade to an existing system as it improves boot speeds and application load times helping maximize one’s computer investment.”

The Kingston SSDNow V310 SSD is available in 960GB as a stand-alone drive or as all-in-one kits that include all the accessories needed plus software to clone files and OS to make for an easy install. SSDNow V310 is backed by a three-year warranty, free technical support and legendary Kingston reliability.

Price and Availability

As of today, Kingston hasn’t revealed its manufacturer’s suggested retail price for the new SSDNow V310 960GB SSD. But since this is an SSDNow series, I’m guessing that it won’t be that expensive compared to other SSDs with a similar capacity.

I’ll try to post an update once the V310 SSD becomes available to order online.

UPDATE: The SSDNow V310 is now available to order online in the following packages below:
