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

UV500 SSDs are available in a range of capacities up to 960GB to meet any storage requirements.

Encrypted Protection

Your sensitive data is protected with support for 256-bit AES hardware-based encryption and TCG Opal 2.0.

Revive old and slow systems with incredibly fast read/write speeds of the UV500 ssd.


Encryption Software

Keeping your data as safe as it is fast has always been a priority for Kingston, and they have pushed the boundaries once again with the new TCG Opal 2.0 encryption software. This fantastic management software allows complete control over your drives protection and it’s ability to work with independent vendors like McAfee to promote great security that is easy to manage. The 256-Bit AES encryption complies with industry standards and global regulations such as GDPR.
