After almost 2 years since the announcement of the UV400 SSD, Kingston finally announced its new UV500 family line of SSD products. It comes available in multiple form factors and will be Kingston’s first 3D NAND-enabled SSD featuring full-disk encryption. The UV500 is powered by the Marvell 88SS1074 controller, and combined with 3D NAND Flash, delivers incredible read/write speeds of up to 520MB/s and 500MB/s, making it 10x faster than a 7200RPM hard drive.

It also features a 256-bit AES hardware-based encryption to protect sensitive data, as well as support for TCG Opal 2.0. It is available in three different form factors (2.5″, M.2 2280, mSATA) to accommodate any client system. The UV500 is perfect as a boot drive or for primary storage as it is available in 120GB, 240GB, 480GB, 960GB and 1920GB* capacities, and is backed by a limited five-year warranty and legendary Kingston support.
