Nice basic TLC NAND drive for those that just want one for general use/storage/games.
DRAM-less, but to be expected at this price.

Info added by

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.

4142594_1.jpg10x 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.
4142594_1.jpgMultiple capacities
A400 is available in capacities of up to 1.92TB² to suit anyone’s needs
4142594_1.jpg 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.

    How much would a case to turn this into an external drive cost? Not lazy, just not sure what would need
    The.Fat.Cat's avatar
    This is a good reliable enclosure, I have one myself (and another on the way) -

    Reliable? Cheap as chips for a 960gb hard drive, you can only buy the crucial 500gb mx500 for this price
    The.Fat.Cat's avatar
    These A400's have decent reliability, they're just not the quickest.

    The MX has DRAM though which is why it's more expensive (though still a little overpriced).
    Only good if you really need the extra little performance the DRAM gives though (as well as better endurance, but both drives are TLC NAND so endurance on either is great).

    The Crucial equivalent to this is the BX500, and the 1TB version is £47 so this is still a better deal. (edited)

    I'm looking to replace the 128gb ssd in my laptop but it has windows and all my other programs downloaded on there. Is there a way to transfer them across to the new ssd?
    The.Fat.Cat's avatar
    Pick up a cheap USB SSD enclosure (£5-7 on Amazon), and install Macrium Reflect 8 Free.
    That will clone your OS onto the new drive then you just swap them over.

    I have one of these enclosures, works fine -

    I thought this was a bargain last week when it was 2 quid more expensive, great price and voted HOT AF!

    Cheapest this drive has been was £33.78 back in April when I bought it.

    Would these work with a series X with a caddy for last gen games
    And_Jon's avatar
    Yes, you can play Xbox one games directly off it plugged into a usb (with caddy)
    Or you can can store series s/X games on it then transfer to the console main drive to play them
    I have an old external usb HDD that do with. M
    Store games off my Xbox one or sons series s, but it's super slow. So will be getting a SSD to do the same job

    My second drive is 2.5" HDD which I use for video editing. Wondering if this drive would be a suitable replacement? Main drive with OS is a Crucial P5 NVMe.

    Secondary to what Fat.Cat said I recommend going to the Official Orico store on Aliexpress and pick up a dirt cheap 10Gbps USB-C NVMe enclosure. I got one for £3.88 because I had chose some coupons and also AliExpress coins. Just select all the application coupons and collect some coins as well before purchase and that will bring the price down. It took about 3 weeks to get here but well worth it.

    Here is the one I bought >


    Also install Honey, Pouch and Coupert extensions in your browser as they can find coupons as well at the Checkout. (edited)

    get this from Amazon for the extra 10p; easier returns, and prime delivery (edited)

    Slightly off topic but I recently bought an M2 Crucial NVme I gb SSD intending to upgrade memory from a 250gb on a second hand levono T480 (posted on here recently) cloned my existing newly cleaned drive via Crucial acronis site and swapped drives but having no luck in getting the laptop to boot up with the new cloned drive. I've tried altering BIOS settings as best I'm able but keep getting nowhere! Foolishly I thought the process would be easy. Incidentally when the original SSD goes back in, the laptop works fine (windows 11). Any comments appreciated!
    stamfordblue's avatar
    Could be your cloned drive has a corrupt or non existent boot sector.
    If you used a USB port for cloning, that may be why you have a problem.
    Have had that happen to me trying to clone a drive via USB port on a Desktop PC.
    I use Macrium Reflect for cloning, and usually works fine for cloning via SATA or PCI .

    that's useful thanks. just changed my mind on picking this up

    Good to see Solid State prices approaching the £25/Tb parity with mechanical drives.
    The.Fat.Cat's avatar
    Wouldn't of even dreamed of that happening a few years ago.
    If only the 4-8TB drives would follow that trend (maybe that's asking a bit much, lol).

    why not get the faster and bigger 1Tb Silicon Power SLC SSD for £34.99?
    jameshothothot's avatar
    Tempting! Once bitten twice shy though as had a silicon power fail on me very quickly but thankfully Amazon gave a refund or replacement.. cannot remember which as I flip a lot of pcs. (edited)

    Excellent price for a second or third drive to dump files etc.
  13. Buzzard73's avatar
    Ordered 2. I didn't want to as just bought a 4TB WD external drive from another HUKD post, but this seems too good to pass up and I can switch out two of my mechanical drives.

    The question is... Is HUKD saving me money or just making me spend more?
    The.Fat.Cat's avatar
    I've found HUKD never saves me money in the long run.
  14. The.Fat.Cat's avatar
    Well that went hot quickly.
  15. muniphobia's avatar
    Tempted to get one to put in the spare bedroom PC so I can keep a copy of my music collection locally on it
  16. tourlk's avatar
