Kingston announces UV400 solid-state drive line
The US memory maker Kingston has presented a new solid-state drive line called UV400. The new line tries to offer a perfect combination between capacities and price and thus it is not a performance SSD line. Despite this the UV400 SSDs is for all the people who need a nice budget solid-state drive.
The new UV400 line supports the latest SATA 3.0 standard and features an unknown quad-channeled memory controller. Thanks to this the drives reach up to 550 MB/sec of read speed and up to 500 MB/sec of write speed. The random 4K performance is up to 90 000 IOPS when reading and up to 50 000 IOPS when writing. The line includes the standard capacities of 120 GB, 240 GB, 480 GB and 960 GB and each model comes with optional additional accessories such as a tray that allows users to turn their UV400 SSD into an external one, an adapter that allows installation in a 3.5-inch bay, a SATA cable and more.
The new SSDs come with a 3-year warranty. They are now available in Europe where they sell for EUR 38.99 for the 120 GB model, EUR 57.90 for the 240 GB model, EUR 114.90 for the 480 GB model and EUR 253.90 for the 960 GB model. These prices do not include the accessory kit, though.
