Nikk Tech have reviewed the Kingston UV500 480GB M.2 SSD, and here's a snippet:\n\n[QUOTE]Solid state drives (SSDs) may be best known for their far superior read and write performance, reduced electrical requirements, lower temperatures and no moving parts compared to regular hard disk drives (HDDs) but they actually introduced something else to the masses which is equally important for some people (if not more), hardware encryption. True it took some time for that specific feature to hit the market (especially the consumer oriented one) but still as we speak there are far more SSD models (both enterprise and consumer models) with that feature than HDD ones (including both 3.5" and 2.5" form factors). Kingston alone has released several 2.5", mSATA and M.2 enterprise-grade SSD models over the years that feature hardware encryption but it wasn't until very recently that they released their very first consumer oriented one which also happens to use their new 3D TLC NAND Flash memory. We are of course talking about the UV500 line and today we'll be taking a look at the 480GB M.2 2280 variant.[/QUOTE]\n\n[ATTACH=full]2454[/ATTACH] \n\nRead more [URL='https://www.nikktech.com/main/articles/pc-hardware/storage/solid-state-drives/9270-kingston-uv500-480gb-m-2-ssd-review']here[/URL].
