Kingston's UV500 family of solid-state drives dramatically improves the responsiveness of your existing system with incredible boot, loading and transfer times. Powered by a Marvell Dean controller combined with 3D NAND Flash for read and write speeds up to 520 MB/s and 500 MB/s, this SSD is faster for better performance, ultra-responsive multitasking and an overall faster system. UV500 provides end-to-end data protection, supports 256-bit AES hardware-based encryption and TCG Opal 2.0 security management solutions. More reliable and durable, UV500 is built with NAND Flash semiconductor memory. There are no moving parts, making it far less likely to fail. It is also cooler and quieter, and its shock and vibration resistance makes it ideal for notebooks and other mobile computing devices.
