Kingston A1000 960GB (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. 



Multiple Capacities

A1000 SSDs are available in a range of capacities up to 960GB to meet any storage requirements.

M.2 2280 Form Factor

Easily integrates with M.2 connectors and is ideal for ultraslim notebooks and systems with limited space.

20x Faster Than a HDD

Revive old and slow systems with incredibly fast read/write speeds of the A1000 NVMe SSD.


Single-Sided M.2 2280 Form Factor

The single sided M.2 2280 form factor design weighs in with read and write speeds of 1500MB/s and up to 1000MB/s respectively, making it a whole 2x faster than the average SATA III based SSD and a massive 20x quicker than a standard mechanical drive. All backed up by 3D NAND flash software and a 4 channel Phison E8 controller, unlocking the true potential of your system makes the A1000 a simple cost effective solution. All that power pushed through extremely low latency timings gives incredible performance when operating your PC, breathing new life into everyday tasks and demanding work all the same. 


Perfect Upgrade

Perfect for any set-up, the A1000 comes in various capacities including 240GB, 480GB and 960GB. You can use the drive purely as a boot drive for your OS or a home for your games, upgrading to this would significantly help both with loading times and smooth performance
