A few weeks back, we published our announcement of Kingstons newest v310 SSD, which features just shy of 1 TB of storage. It was not greeted with open arms. To explain the controversy we were met with from the moment we published this story, the 1TB V310 had a MSRP of $928.00, and random 4K read speeds are stated as (up to) 27,000 IOPS, with random 4K write speeds of (up to) 10,500 IOPS. If you are looking for the slickest and fastest drive on the market today, you can stop reading here. There are other drives available that can achieve higher throughput and at, unfortunately, a lower cost. As we do for every SSD, we requested a review sample nonetheless, and were shocked to find one in the mail just a few days before the Flash memory Summit.
Hidden away in a dark part of the Modders-Inc offices is a man, no a machine, that writes reviews so epic that they have been listed in the top ten best reads by the New York Times. Well that is what we tell him otherwise we have no idea what would happen if he knew the truth.
