Kingston A1000 480GB (M.2 2280) NVMe Solid State Drive
Kingston once again deliver premium quality storage for an excellent price with the new A1000 solid state drive. Making standard mechanical drives a thing of the past, the solid state technology drastically improves failure rate without having a physical disk present. SSD drives are much cooler and allow consistent temperature monitoring with ease. Naturally smaller and quieter than standard drives, the A1000 is perfect for any laptop/notebook with added shock proofing for ultimate reliability.

By definition flash storage is much more reliable than a hard drive and less likely to fail or report errors, mainly due to the fact there is no physical disk in the casing that is needed to spin in order to read data. Because of this the drive is essentially shock proof, making this the perfect solution for all laptops and notebooks, as well as desktop builds. The drive stays naturally cooler and is easier to keep that way and runs a lot quieter than traditional 3.5” storage.
