Introduction

Kingston SSDNow 960 GB Internal SSD ‑ 2.5" ‑ UV500

With all of the fanfare M.2 NVMe drives get, it’s sometimes easy to forget that SSD’s exist in other form-factors and that SATA drives are still alive and well. If you have a machine that isn’t the very latest, it’s quite possible you don’t even have M.2 support. If you work from your PC or otherwise need protection, Kingston’s UV500 series drives provide full end to end 256-bit AES Hardware-based encryption for peace of mind and OPAL 2.0 support for security management solutions. If you need something smaller, the UV500 also comes in M.2 B-key (SATA) and mSATA also for speed and security in any machine.

 

ProClockers would like to thank Kingston for sending us the UV500 SSD to check out!

Kington’s take on the UV500 Encrypted SSD:
Kingston’s UV500 SSD dramatically improves your system’s responsiveness with incredible boot, loading, and transfer times compared to mechanical hard drives. It uses a Marvell 88SS1074 controller and 3D NAND Flash to power through daily tasks and improve productivity. Perfect for your desktops, small form factor pc and laptops.

Available in multiple form factors and capacities from 120GB–1.92TB giving you options to meet your system’s needs. End-to-end data protection using 256-bit AES Hardware-based encryption and support for TCG Opal 2.0 security management solutions allows the usage of independent software vendors such as Symantec, McAfee, WinMagic and others.

Kingston’s UV500 family of encrypted solid-state drives dramatically improves the responsiveness of your existing system or client upgrades with incredible boot, loading, and transfer times compared to mechanical hard drives.

Powerful

Powered by a Marvell 88SS1074 controller combined with Next Gen 64-layer 3D TLC NAND Flash for read and write speeds up to 520MB/s and 500MB/s, this SSD is 10X faster than a traditional hard drive for better performance, ultra-responsive multi-tasking, and an overall faster system. It is also cooler, quieter, and its shock and vibration resistance makes it ideal for notebooks, small form factor PCs, and other mobile computing devices.

Encrypted SSD

UV500 provides end-to-end data protection using the advanced 256-bit AES Hardware-based encryption and support for Trusted Computing Group (TCG) Opal 2.0 as required by security platforms. Enables the advantage of drive encryption and Data Loss Prevention (DLP) software programs to activate and manage TCG Opal, such as Symantec, McAfee, WinMagic and others. Serves as an important element to security policies when complying with industry standards and global regulations, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

System Solution

Available in multiple capacities from 120GB–1.92TB provides efficient client upgrades, Windows 10 migrations, and advantages for system builders to extend the life of systems. Accelerate as a boot drive, multitasking workloads, or hosting your most frequently used applications.
