    Kingston 480GB SSDNow M.2 SATA G2 SSD Product Description

    Kingston  480GB SSDNow M.2 SATA G2 SSD
    Next-generation SSD technology.
    Kingston's M.2 SATA G2 SSD is a thin and compact, caseless internal solidstate drive that combines high capacity with low power consumption to serve as a reliable caching device or primary storage for the O/S and applications. Suitable for desktop motherboards that use the Intel 9x chipset and popular small-form-factor (SFF) PCs including ultrabooks, notebooks and tablets, the M.2 2280 SATA G2 SSD easily integrates into designs with M.2 connectors and is ideal for system builders and DIY end users.

    Lighter weight than a cased SSD, the M.2 SATA G2 SSD optimises performance with advanced garbage collection, wear-levelling and TRIM support to keep performance consistent over the life of the drive. DevSleep, a recent addition to the SATA specification, is an efficient power management option that minimises power consumption and extends battery life. Firmware-based power loss protection maintains data integrity and ensures that data in the cache is constantly flushed and hardened to NAND to enable the drive to recover in the event of an unsafe shutdown.

    The complimentary Kingston SSD Manager (KSM) monitors warranty status and SSD health via the Kingston website. The M.2 SATA G2 SSD is backed by a limited five-year warranty, free technical support and legendary Kingston reliability.
