SSDNow KC310 Drive

With 960GB of storage capacity, SSDNow KC310 is Kingston’s largest business class solid-state drive. A true HDD replacement, it’s easy to transition to; now there are no tradeoffs needed between performance and capacity.

SSDNow KC310 features an 8-channel Phison S10 controller plus a DDR3 DRAM cache and quad-core processor for speeds of 550MB/s read and 520MB/s write. Its high IOPS reduce application latency and improve bootup and responsiveness to increase productivity and extend the life of existing HDD-based systems.

KC310 delivers end-to-end data protection with Advanced Smart ECC and Flash ECC protection for advanced data reliability. Intelligent data error correction fixes up to 120bits for every 2KB of data and, in the event of an error, data is rebuilt.

For added peace of mind, KC310 has firmware-based power loss protection. To maintain data integrity in case of unexpected power loss, the drive ensures data in cache is constantly flushed and hardened to NAND.

SSDNow KC310 is backed by a three-year warranty, free technical support and legendary Kingston® reliability.

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.

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 organization to delay a PC refresh and potentially save thousands of dollars.

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.
