SSDs in a Business Environment

Notebook and desktop PC memory

Notebook and desktop PC use

Kingston solid-state drives will make your system boot quicker, load applications faster and shut down faster. They are ideal for notebook and desktop use to increase the performance of common office and multimedia applications. Learn more

Extending the life of older systems

Extending the life of older desktop and notebook computers

Kingston SSDs will not only increase performance and make data more secure but they can also be used to extend the life of older systems and enable an organisation to delay a PC refresh and potentially save thousands of pounds.

Multimedia

Multimedia

If you work with large images or video files, you know that these files and the applications that use them are very dependent on your drive’s storage performance. Whether you are applying layers and effects to an image or editing HD video content, an SSD can deliver more data faster than a traditional hard drive.
