    Kingston SSDNow V+100 uses the same controller. The SSD in MBA is what it is because of the firmware and that is only available for the MBA SSD, not for other SSDs such as the Kingston.

    Wait what?

    Can't understand you dude.

    However, the MacBook Air doesn't use a standard SSD, it's the internals of one but without the case and then incorporated into the logic board.

    MBA exclusive firmware to allow SSD to perform better?
