They’re definitely not the first mainstream memory maker to add a 30GB SSD to their lineup, but that doesn’t mean it’s unappreciated. Lower-density storage typically means a more affordable price for those consumers who just want to add a little more pep to their laptops and desktops. Given how expensive SSDs still are, that’s a welcome thing.
Kingston is aiming this drive at both desktop and laptop users – when sold on its own, users can get an all-in-one bundle that includes cloning software and conversion brackets. It’ll also be sold in a twin pack so that you can set up high performance RAID arrays in your desktop. No official price yet, but if exchange rates hold, it should come in under $150.
