Kingston SSDNow KC100 240GB SSD Upgrade Kit Review

Article Index

Kingston followed the classic SSDNow design with the KC100 series so we see the usual large sticker ontop of a gray metal housing. The sticker contains information such as the drive capacity, serial number, electrical specifications, assembly origin and the model number (SKC100S3/240G).

The rear is also gray and Kingston once again used torx security screws.

At the rear of the drive we see the usual SATA III connectivity and 4 pins which are most likely used by Kingston technicians to perform firmware updates.

As we already mentioned the KC100 series features the 2nd generation controller by SandForce (SF-2281) and a total of sixteen 16GB Intel Synchronous 25nm NAND modules.

Not easy to have such charts, at least not accurate ones. We could have at least 20 more SSD models in our charts but they were tested in the past using the i7-920 CPU with the X58 Assassin mainboard and 12GB of RAM which is not quite the same as the i7-3930k with the X79-UD7 and 16GB of RAM.

Nice review. I really like when there are charts that compare against similar products. It makes it easier to decide on whether it is worth it to shell out a few extra bucks for one brand over another.
