Kingston 480GB SSDNow M.2 SATA 3 SSD/Solid State Disk Drive
480GB Kingston SSDNow, M.2 SATA (22x80) SSD, 3.5 mm, Read 550MB/s, Write 520MB/s, 90k/85k IOPS
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.

The arrival of the solid-state drive (SSD) has revolutionised the speed at which modern PCs perform common tasks. This is because SSDs have no moving parts, compared to larger, bulkier mechanical drives, thus they store information on memory chips. This means that accesses, reads and writes are many, many times faster
