I mentioned earlier this month that Kingston had unveiled a new version of its SSDNow V+ with support for the Windows 7 TRIM feature. The version that was shown off earlier this month was a relatively small 30GB capacity SSD.

Kingston has now announced that it is adding faster and higher capacity SSDs to its line. The SSDNow V+ line all include Windows 7 Trim support and the SSDs are now available in up to 512GB capacity. The new line has sequential read speed of 230MB/sec and sequential write of 180MB/sec.

The drives are all 2.5-inch form factor units and use MLC NAND flash. Available capacities in the line are now 64GB, 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB. The downside is the price of the larger capacity SSD kits. The 64GB bundle sells for $283, the 128GB sells for $528, the 256GB bundle sells for $1008, and the 512GB bundle is $1985. The drive alone in all capacities will save you about $20.
