Kingston Q500 SSD

Incredible Speeds Plus Rock-Solid Reliability

Kingston Q500 solid-state drive dramatically improves the responsiveness of your existing system with incredible boot, loading, and transfer times compared to mechanical hard drives. Powered by a latest-gen controller and operating over SATA 6 Gbps host interface, the Q500 achieves read and write speeds up to 500MB/s and 450MB/s¹ (10X faster than a traditional hard drive) for higher performance, ultra-responsive multi-tasking and an overall faster system.

Also more reliable and durable than a hard drive, the Q500 is built with Flash memory. There are no moving parts, making it less likely to fail than a mechanical hard drive. It's also cooler and quieter, and its shock and vibration resistance makes it ideal for notebooks and other mobile computing devices.

Available in multiple capacities from 120GB–960GB² to meet your needs.

10x faster than a HDD — With incredible read/write speeds the Q500 SSD will not only increase performance but can also be used to breathe new life into older systems.

Rugged — Q500 is shock- and vibration-resistant for rugged reliability when used in notebooks and other mobile computing devices.

Multiple capacities — Available in 120GB, 240GB, 480GB and 960GB² capacities, Q500 is designed to suit anyone's needs.

Ideal for desktops and notebooks — Q500 has a 7mm form factor to fit in a wider array of systems. It's ideal for slimmer notebooks and in systems with limited available space.

1. Based on “out-of-box performance” using a SATA Rev. 3.0 motherboard. Speed may vary due to host hardware, software and usage. IOMETER Random 4k Random Read/Write is based on 8GB partition.

2. Some of the listed capacity on a Flash storage device is used for formatting and other functions and thus is not available for data storage. As such, the actual available capacity for data storage is less than what is listed on the products. For more information, go to Kingston's Flash Memory Guide.

Cheap SSD 6/24/2020 12:14:26 PM

Pros: Plug and play. Does what it's supposed to do.

Cons: No DRAM cache; sustained write speeds and random seeks will be bad.

Overall Review: My use case is archival; I don't plan on overwriting the drives much and was focused more on minimizing the risk of read failures far in the future (so HDDs and their mechanical failure chance was a no-go). So it might not be suitable for your build, but it worked well for mine.

Repacked used sold as new 5/3/2020 7:53:24 AM

Pros: Package shows signs of tampering
HD shows signs of wear and use.

Cons: Will not use in any of my devices as I don’t know what might be wrong with it as it is obviously used.

Overall Review: This is the problem with 3rd party vendors on most sights I’ve shopped on.
My advice is don’t buy from 3rd party vendors.

Cheap, fast SSD 4/27/2020 12:15:15 PM

Pros: It's an SSD. Does one job and does it well. Plug and Play Installation, just need to format it.

Cons: No DRAM Cache, so drive is suitable for lighter workloads.

Overall Review: I installed this drive to replace a failed 5,400RPM hard drive in a friend's computer. Anything is an upgrade from that. And an upgrade this was. The drive barely has to work to boot Windows and run programs. The computer owner is amazed at how fast the computer is now. The CPU is the bottleneck now with how fast programs can load, unlike the former hard drive experience.

As this drive was installed in a lighter use computer, it does the job and will probably last for a very long time. With that said, do be aware that this drive does not have a DRAM Cache, so performance and endurance will be less than a drive which does have DRAM or NVMe RAM-backed cache especially over time with write and heavy read operations, but if you need a cheap drive, this works.
