Kingston Now Shipping “Ultra Value” UV400 SSDs

Kingston has announced that it is now shipping its “ultra value” UV400 solid state drives, offering up to 980GB of storage for under £200, with its four-channel Marvell controller boasting 10x the performance of a 7200RPM HDD and 550MBps/500MBps read/write speeds, respectively. The 120GB model is available for as little as £30.

“We are proud to bring UV400 to market allowing users of all levels to replace their current mechanical hard drives with an SSD and see the benefits of higher performance,” Nathan Su, Flash Memory Sales Director for Kingston, said. “The combination of a powerful four-channel controller and TLC NAND makes UV400 perfect for consumers who want to upgrade their existing system at an entry-level price.”
