Awards and Reviews
Speeds up an older PC “Replaced the SATA 7200 RPM drive with this SSD. WOW. The PC boots much quicker. The PC is also noticeably faster when using it. ” Read Full Review
Blazing fast and reliable - 4.5 out of 5 stars “The boot up times and application load times are better than brand new i7 laptops with HDDs and the ruggedness of these SSDs for travelling makes it ultimate for a laptop. Along with almost no noise (there seems to a very very faint interference sound/seek sound), perfect choice for any OS drive, and can be recommended as a must have for any new laptop. Will never feel like going back to traditional HDDs after using one of these even while capped with SATA II (gives me an average sequential read of 280 MB/s and average random read of 260 MB/s), or even the new hybrid drives as they just can't deliver the speed and robustness of an SSD. Quite a bargain for price paid.” Read Full Review

SSDs for Consumers
Hard drive replacement

Solid-state drives are the next evolution of PC storage and run faster, quieter and cooler than the aging technology inside hard drives. With no moving parts, SSDs are also more durable and more reliable than hard drives.

For desktops and notebooks

Kingston solid-state drives will make your system more responsive so it boots quicker, loads applications faster and shuts down faster. They’re available in upgrade kits that include software to clone your files and OS in minutes.

Revive older systems

Solid-state drives will not only increase performance but can also be used to breathe new life into older systems. Choosing an SSD can save you the cost of buying a new PC by reviving the system you already own.
