Meanwhile Kingston, like many of their competitors, also have a SandForce SF-2281 based SSD with asynchronous NAND flash memory in their portfolio. In this review we got the chance to test their 90 Gigabyte drive, which is kind of an unusual size. But as always, were going to torture the drive and tell you what it's capable of.

Model OCZ Synapse Cache 64 Gigabyte
Capacity 64 Gigabyte
Memory Asynchronous NAND Flash
Technology Micron 29 F64G08CBAAA
Throughput up to 550 MB/s reading, up to 490 MB/s writing
Accesstime (read) < 0.1 ms

Behind the scenes

Basically the V+200 from Kingston is a 90 Gigabyte SSD, which uses a SandForce SF-2281 Controller and asynchronous NAND Flash memory from Intel. These have been manufactured using a 25 nanometer process and the individual chips have 29 F64G08ACME3 written on them. This indicates that the memory cells are specified for 3'000 P/E cycles and the memory itself is connected to the controller via ONFi 1.0 standard.


In the deliery you get what you need to setup the drive. There is a CD with software for easy migration, an external casing, 3.5 inch adaptor brackets, a SATA cable as well as a power adaptor. Altogether there really is everything you need.
