Kingston ships KC100 SSD for pros

updated 11:55 am EDT, Tue September 13, 2011

120GB to 480GB SSDs feature Sandforce controllers

Kingston has begun shipping the SSDNow KC100 Drive for business environments. The SATA 3.0 drive is available in 120GB, 240GB and 480GB capacities. It incorporates SandForce's SSD contoller into its architecture and should be very fast depending on capacity, with sequential reads of 540 to 555 MB per second, and sequential writes of 450MB to 510MB per second.

The KC100 adds enterprise-based SMART monitoring capabilities to warn when a drive is close to failure. Kingston has also embedded two engines for self-encrypting data. These engines, running both AES-128 and AES-256, provide full and immediate client-level data encryption.

A stand-alone 120GB KC-100 is priced at $337. A 240GB model is priced at $650, while a large capacity 480GB version is available for $1,270. An upgrade kit with 3.5-inch mounting bracket and cloning software adds $15.
