Can't wait to see 1TB SSD under 200$ :blarg:

2000$ is way to much for the capacity, sure the speed is there, but it's not enough to justify the price IMO

Does Kingston still make the 40gb? The family of SSDs listed doesn't include it, and I thought the ones like 64 and 128 and 256 weren't supposed to be that good. Would this be another sub-par SSD?

This sounds like a refresh of the V+ series. It will be interesting to see if the V+ is still a Samsung controller based line. :)

As to your question Iphikratous, the original SSDNow V (eg 64,128,etc) were JMircon based controllers (albeit an improved version w/ a small amount of cache). I can see them being phased out PDQ. The SSDnow V 40GB is an Intel based drive. Cant see that one going anywhere for awhile, considering Intel recently came out with their own Intel branded version of it. ;)

I wish Kingston would make their naming less painful to try to remember. But.. that's an astronomical price for a single drive.

And now where exactly is this TRIM firmware? There is no sign of it on Kingston website..
