Intel 40GB SSD Portable Drive

If you’ve wanted a budget friendly Solid State Disk up until this point and you didn’t need a ton of memory one of your only choices has been the well received Kingston 40GB SSDnow, now Intel has added their own budget SSD with it’s smaller size to the market and we have the specs and pricing for the X25-V Value line.

The Intel X25-V features 35MB/s write speeds, while featuring 65 / 110 microsecond read/write latency, which means it’s not going to top anyone’s list of super fast drives, but given the fact that it can be picked up for around $130, it’s a great offering for users looking for a portable SSD on a budget.

The drivers are available for immediate purchase. [Engadget]
