Kingston SSDNow UV500 480GB Laptop Upgrade Kit

Replacing a mechanical disk drive with an SSD disk is the most affordable and effective solution to significantly improve the performance of your computer or laptop. The operating system responds almost instantly, applications and games load without delay and bulky files transfer in seconds. The Kingston SSDNow UV500 480GB 2.5" SSD disk is part of the new SSD series that replaces the older UV400 series. The main innovation is the use of 3D NAND Flash technology with vertically stacked cells.

Key Features of the Kingston SSDNow UV500 480GB 2.5" SSD Disk

  • Simple and effective way to upgrade your computer
  • Speeds up older systems by up to 10x
  • Faster command response, program loading, and data transfer
  • Resistant to vibrations and mild shocks
  • More reliable and durable than a standard hard drive
  • 480GB disk capacity
  • Mean time between failures (MTBF) of 1 million hours

Immediate System Responses

The Kingston SSDNow UV500 is controlled by the Marvell four-channel controller and is up to 10x faster compared to a 7200rpm mechanical HDD, significantly increasing the response speed of system commands. You can enjoy extremely fast data transfer and read speeds provided by the SATA III interface.

Quiet and Safe

This Kingston SSDNow UV500 is faster and more reliable than a standard hard drive. It has no moving parts and is completely silent. Its low weight and resistance to vibrations and mild shocks make it an ideal choice for use in laptops. Your data will be completely safe; the probability of a disk failure is much smaller than with a hard disk dive. The SSD disk also has a very low power consumption. With the use of wear-levelling algorithms, the Kingston UV500 SSD extends data writing to all memory chips and thus increases the overall lifespan of the disk.

Protect Your Data

The Kingston SSDNow UV500 480GB 2.5" SSD disk provides user data protection over the entire processing route when transferring from the computer system to the SSD and back (end-to-end data protection). For encryption, the Kingston SSDNow UV500 uses internationally-approved AES 256-bit hardware-based encryption technology that automatically encrypts and decrypts your data using a built-in AES chip, which is safer than software-based encryption. The drive also supports TCG Opal 2.0 security management solutions.
