From the manufacturer
Kingston is one of the world’s leading independent memory manufacturer.
Breathe new life into your system
Kingston’s SSDNow UV400 is powered by a four-channel Marvell controller for incredible speeds and higher performance compared to a mechanical hard drive. It dramatically improves the responsiveness of your existing system and is 10 times faster than a 7200RPM hard drive¹.
Rugged and more reliable and durable than a hard drive, UV400 is built using Flash memory so it’s shock- and vibration-resistant and less likely to fail than a mechanical hard drive. Its ruggedness makes it ideal for notebooks and other mobile computing devices.
For easy installation, UV400 is available in a bundle kit that includes everything needed to get the SSD installed into your existing system, including a USB enclosure to transfer data, a 2–3.5 inch adapter to mount in a desktop environment, a SATA data cable and a coupon for an Acronis data migration software download⁴.
UV400 is available in multiple capacities, from 120GB to 960GB², giving you plenty of space for all your files, applications, videos, photos and other important documents. It’s the ideal hard drive replacement and can also replace a smaller SSD in your system to give you all the room you need.
¹Based on 'out-of-box performance' using a SATA Rev. 3.0 motherboard. Speed may vary due to host hardware, software and usage. IOMETER Random 4k Random Read/Write is based on 8GB partition.
²Some of the listed capacity on a Flash storage device is used for formatting and other functions and thus is not available for data storage. As such, the actual available capacity for data storage is less than what is listed on the products. For more information, go to Kingston’s Flash Memory Guide at our website.
³Limited warranty based on 3 years or SSD 'Life Remaining,' which can be found using the Kingston SSD Manager (available on our website). A new, unused product will show a wear indicator value of one hundred (100), whereas a product that has reached its endurance limit of program erase cycles will show a wear indicator value of one (1). Check our website for details.
⁴Operating system software support: Windows 8.1, 8, 7 (SP1), Vista (SP1, SP2), XP (SP3).

Biggest Pro: (Only in the 'Upgrade Bundle Kit' version) They include an external case with a usb cable on it. So you can plug the ssd into the case, and basically use it like a giant thumb drive. Picture attached. (I put my old ssd in the case, so I have a nice big portable usb drive now.) It also came with spare cables that could be needed if you're installing on a standard pc motherboard.)
Pro: Install process followed the standard ssd install, no weird quirks or anything. Just google your computer or laptop model with "how to replace ssd in my <blah>", you'll find a video that will teach you how to do it.
Pro: I like the little kingston logo, the face. I told my kids that we have to put this person inside our computers to make them work. They ate it up.
Maybe a con: It was shipped in a floppy manilla envelope... not exactly how I'd want my precious hard drive to be shipped. But I'm not deducting any points against it because the drives are apparently durable enough to have not been damaged at all. And if they were damaged, I could have just sent them back to Amazon.
I don't do much with my computer other than email and documents so I can't make any recommendation for real performance -- my demands are so low that anything will perform well, and having this SSD drive has breathed new life into an old computer. If you're just looking for SSD instead of HDD, this has really proven the 50 bucks worthwhile.
Now we'll see how long the drive lasts -- hopefully it doesn't break down after just a few months. But so far after a day, it's fantastic.
The Kingston SSDs feel much more heavy duty and durable compared to the light plastic toy-like SanDisk SSDs. I've used several different brands of SSDs over the years with Kingston being the most common. In the future I'll not waste my time and just purchase the Kingston SSDs.
Highly recommended based on several years of using Kingston SSDs (several dozen still going strong).
