What customers say about "Features"
Kingston SUV500 480GB SSD SATA3 2.5 Inch Drive
  • Once software is up to date works brilliantly at transfers everything inc O/S.
  • This ssd was very easy to install and has sped up my laptop immensely.
  • Working nicely. Decent speed, can boot PC. Pc starts much faster.
  • Machine runs great, perfect for browsing and playing films. Couldn't ask for more for the price. Recommended.
  • Fast little SSD. Currently running Windows10 on it through VMWare on a Mac. No issues, decent throughout.
Kingston A400 Solid State Drive (2.5 Inch, SATA III)
  • Very light, easy to install (unscrew case, unscrew old drive, screw in new drive).
  • The drive is very lightweight, easy to install. Seems quite fast.
  • Fairly easy to install and to clone my existing drive .I'm not disappointed!
  • Only drawback was that I thought it would be easy to clone the old drives to swap the new ones in, but that was a total pain, so ended up doing a fresh install and copying data across to new drive.
  • My issue is that there is no drive imaging software support from Kingston for the this range of SSDs, most disappointing.
