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.

Works right out of the box. 8/26/2020 5:28:18 PM

Pros: Good value for a SSD
Standard mounting holes fit perfectly.
Wicked fast.
It's black.

Cons: 240G instead of 250G

Overall Review: Difficult to get excited about a SSD but this one does what I needed. Was able to set up the partitioning and formatting without any issues. Running LINUX UBUNTU 20.0x with encrypted files. The simple all black enclosure makes it look good in my case window.

Cons: None so far. Not the fastest.

Overall Review: Good SSD to replace standard HDD’s.

Kingston Q500 7/25/2020 8:55:40 PM

Pros: None yet. It's still in the package as a paper weight. All my other Kingston work 100% Six so far.

Cons: Not a con holio. It would be nice if the price drops on the 1-2 TB as faster ones are coming online.

Overall Review: They all work fine. They don't heat up when doing a clone or system image like some others.
It's crucial these ssd's don't go belly up due to heat.
