Kingston today announced its budget Solid State Drive UV400 in India. It will be available in two storage variants. The UV400 SSD will cost 5,999 INR for 120GB capacity and 10,000 INR for 240GB variant. It will be available at all leading retailers and e-commerce portals across the country.
UV400 is powered by a four channel Marvell controller which offers read speeds of up to 550MB/s and also write speeds of up to 550MB/s. It also offers fast boot time and is about 10 times faster than a 7200RPM Hard Disk Drive.
UV400 is rugged and also quite durable with three years of warranty. Since it is shock and vibration resistance, you can expect it to withstand a few physical setbacks.
“We are proud to bring UV400 to this market allowing users of all levels to replace their current mechanical hard drives with an SSD and see the benefits of higher performance. 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.” said Nathan Su, Flash Memory Sales Director, APAC Region, Kingston.
Users can buy this device as a standalone drive or as part of a bundle kit which includes 2.5″ USB enclosure for notebooks and 3.5″ adapter for desktops, a SATA cable and an Acronis5 data migration software download coupon.
Kingston also stated that it will introduce 480GB and 960GB storage variants in India very soon.
