Kingston SSDNow V+ 128GB Solid State Disk

A Closer Look

                               The top of the drive is fairly plain. all of the vital information is easy to read and out in the open, making identification easy.
On the bottom of the drive, we see the screw holes that can be used to remove the back cover. if you do remove these and check the drive, you will see that Kingston paired up with Toshiba to make some of the parts, but also that it is solely a Kingston manufactured drive, rather than a re-branded patriot.
                               On the side of the drive, you can see the SATA cable and SATA power connector.
This is the drive mounted in the 3.5″ adapter, which is mounted to a standard Thermaltake HDD tray.
