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.

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.
