Kingston 80GB 2.5-inch SSD M Drive (Intel X25-M SATA)

Kingston 80GB 2.5-inch SSD M Drive (Intel X25-M SATA)
Kingston's new line of SSDNow solid-state drives (SSD) rounds out its suite of enterprise products. The SSDNow M Series uses Intel's solid-state drives, which are the best-performing drives on the market. By improving a computer's performance and durability, SSDNow M Series drives help increase the productivity of power users.

SSDNow M Series drives increase performance with the impressive input and output operations per second (IOPS), a result of the drive's NAND Flash components and the powerful Native Command Queuing. With higher IOPS than a standard mechanical hard disk drive (HDD), SSDNow M Series allows for faster boot times and faster application loads than HDDs, ultimately making a power user more productive.

SSD uses a standard hard disk drive interface but unlike an HDD, SSD is very rugged and can handle more shock because it's built with no moving parts. Kingston's SSDNow M Series can withstand greater shock than an HDD, making it an ideal solution for executives and road warriors who push the limits of their notebooks.

Kingston's SSDNow M Series drives are equipped with S.M.A.R.T (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) to tell the user when a drive is about to fail.

For added peace of mind, the drives are backed by 24/7 tech support, a three-year warranty and legendary Kingston(R) reliability.
