Kingston's updated SSDNow V300 uses 19nm Toshiba Toggle NAND and the SandForce 2281 controller with some unspecified enhancements.  Kingston has made a name for themselves in the SSD market for offering an easy and fully explained upgrade path for users who are unfamiliar with changing hard drives.  The updated version is no different, included is an external enclosure for the SSD and a USB cable to allow users to easily copy over any data which is of great benefit for users who don't have several enclosures laying around.  [H]ard|OCP's testing showed that even though this is a value priced drive, it also performs better than a lot of the competition.

"The Kingston SSDNow V300 is yet another value-oriented SSD in Kingston's wildly successful line of mainstream solid state drives. With the pressures of TLC SSDs squeezing the value market we take a look and see if a standard MLC SSD with 19nm Toshiba Toggle NAND and an SF-2281 processor can keep up with the changing times."
