Cheapest ever price on this Kingston SSD.
Internal Solid State Drive 2.5" SATA Rev 3.0 SA400S37/480G

From the manufacturer

Kingston’s A400 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 for read and write speeds of up to 500MB/s and 450MB/s¹, this SSD is 10x faster than a traditional hard drive¹ for higher performance, ultra-responsive multi-tasking and an overall faster system.
  • Also more reliable and durable than a hard drive, A400 is built with Flash memory. There are no moving parts, making it less likely to fail than a mechanical hard drive. It is also cooler and quieter, and its shock and vibration resistance makes it ideal for notebooks and other mobile computing devices.

  • Fast start-up, loading and file transfers
  • More reliable and durable than a hard drive
  • Multiple capacities with space for applications or a hard drive replacement

  • A400 is available in multiple drive form factors and capacities from 120GB–1.92GB² to give you all the space you need for applications, videos, photos and other important documents. You can also replace your hard drive or a smaller SSD with a drive big enough to hold all your files.
  • This SSD is designed for use in desktop and notebook computer workloads and is not intended for server environments.

10x faster than a hard drive¹
With incredible read/write speeds, the A400 SSD will not only increase performance but can also be used to breathe new life into older systems.

A400 is shock- and vibration-resistant for rugged reliability when used in notebooks and other mobile computing devices.

Multiple capacities
A400 is available in capacities of up to 1.92TB² to suit anyone’s needs

Ideal for desktops and notebooks
A400 comes in 2.5” 7mm and M.2 form factors to fit in a wide array of systems. It is ideal for thin and light notebooks with limited 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 an 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.

    Crazy what a difference you could make to an old PC with just £14

    Just had to swap out ANOTHER one of the A400, this one a 480GB less than 3 years old with <30TB written. Read performance became super intermittent. I'd advise staying clear of the A400.

    How does this compare to the integral p or v series?
    Integral P and V Series are nearly the same drive as each other. They are both DRAM-less TLC SSDs where the V series has slightly lower performance than the P, and not enough to be noticeable, really. But do note that the P series, supposedly the faster of the two, only benchmarks up to around 450MB/s R/W in sequential tasks despite quoting 560R/540W. The V should naturally fair worse.

    The A400 is in the same class as these DRAM-less TLC drives. I would get whichever is the cheapest. (edited)

    I'd say the Kioxia drive from amazon is better than this one for not much more.

    I stick these on the end of a sata-usb3 cable, and they make great external drives, because they are nicely finished, discrete, without stickers and obvious screws etc..
