Kingston Showcases High-Capacity SSDNow KC400 Drives

Kingston has expanded its SSDNow lineup of solid-state drives by KC400 series. It entails four high-capacity 2.5-inch models: 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB and 1 TB. All of them are based on a 4-core 8-channel Phison 3110 controller and SATA III interface. The new-comers feature 100.1x69.8x7.0 mm dimension only and are shipped with a 5-year’s limited warranty.



Kingston SSDNow KC400 drives support SmartECC technology that serves for the maximal protection of data purposes. In addition, they accommodate SmartRefresh technology that saves the data from reading errors. The availability of onboard dedicated software ensures that the models could restart after emergency power shutdown.


All SSDs boast quite high cumulative volume of written data. The drives are able to operate in a wide range of temperatures (from -40 to +85). Their maximal power consumption index equals to 3.74 W on reading and 0.255 W in idle mode.


Moreover, the KC400 series offers unprecedented performance …

Solid-State Drive OCZ Agility 4 Review

Up-to-date SSD manufacturers are inclined to employ MLC flash-memory with synchronous interface in their product lines. The implementation of exactly such memory interface allows balancing the advanced performance with moderate price. This is especially vital for SSDs with SATA 3 6Gb/sec interface. Nevertheless, some producers take the challenge to implement flash-memory with asynchronous interface in their drives. As a result, the final products go at more attractive price but with more modest speed characteristics. OCZ dared to overcome this speed drawback by releasing SSD Agility 4 series. The models included in the series are based on asynchronous flash-memory interface and, according to the company's words, prove to show quite decent speed index.
