Kingston launches UV500 family line of SSD products

Kingston has launched its UV500 family line of SSD products. Available in multiple form factors, UV500 will be Kingston’s first 3D NAND-enabled SSD featuring full-disk encryption. UV500 is powered by the Marvell 88SS1074 controller, and combined with 3D NAND Flash, delivers incredible read/write speeds of up to 520MB/s and 500MB/s, making it 10x faster than a 7200RPM hard drive. All form factors of the UV500 SSD family are available in retail and e-tail stores with MRPs of INR 5,850/-, INR 10,250/- and INR 19,450/- for 120GB, 240GB and 480GB variants respectively. The complete family of SSDs is backed by a limited five-year warranty and legendary Kingston support.


UV500 dramatically improves a system’s overall responsiveness with incredible boot, loading and transfer times; and, with no moving parts is far less likely to fail compared to mechanical hard drives. UV500 protects sensitive data with 256-bit AES hardware-based encryption and supports TCG Opal 2.0. It is available in three different form factors (2.5″, M.2 2280 & mSATA) to accommodate any client system. UV500 is perfect as a boot drive or for primary storage as it is available in 120GB, 240GB, 480GB, 960GB and 1920GB* capacities.

Vishal Parekh, Marketing Director, Kingston Technology India, said, “We are proud to bring the UV500 family of SSDs featuring self-encryption to market. The combination of a powerful controller, 3D NAND and data encryption in multiple form factors makes UV500 perfect for both consumers and enterprise users looking for a performance boost on existing systems.”
