Kingston's M.2 SATA G2 SSD is a thin and compact, caseless internal solidstate drive that combines high capacity with low power consumption to serve as a reliable caching device or primary storage for the O/S and applications. Suitable for desktop motherboards utilizing the Intel 9x chipset and popular Small Form Factor (SFF) PCs including ultrabooks, notebooks, and tablets, the M.2 2280 SATA G2 SSD easily integrates into designs with M.2 connectors and is ideal for system builders and DIY end users. Lighter weight than a cased SSD, the M.2 SATA G2 SSD optimizes performance with advanced garbage collection, wear-leveling and TRIM support to keep performance consistent over the life of the drive.1 DevSleep, a recent addition to the SATA specification, is an efficient power management option that minimizes power consumption and extends battery life. Firmware-based power loss protection maintains data integrity and ensures data in cache is constantly flushed and hardened to NAND to enable the drive to recover in the event of an unsafe shutdown. The complimentary Kingston SSD Manager (KSM) monitors warranty status and SSD health via the Kingston website. The M.2 SATA G2 SSD is backed by a limited five-year warranty,2 free technical support and legendary Kingston reliability.


Main Features
  • M.2 Form Factor: Multi-purpose SFF connector replaces small mSATA and mini-PCIe slots
  • Single-sided design (120GB/240GB): Integrates easily into designs with M.2 connectors; ideal for thin-and-light systems
  • High capacity: Available in capacities up to 480GB
  • Guaranteed : 5 year limited warranty and free technical support

Wow... It's annoying how much these have come down since I bought mine in March!
Great price.
Looking for a 2260 M.2 NVMe for a Lenovo X1 Carbon Gen 1 but they are like hens teeth. Could maybe get away with a 2244 but the 2280 but the 2280 is too long
Seems like a great price. Have some heat
It’s a good price and I’ll certainly give it heat but hope folks out there realise that this is just an M2 form factor SATA drive and not a faster NVME drive. If you’re not after the fastest option then this could be a winner - otherwise another £30 would get you a significantly faster NVME drive.

For the money though this is a good deal for what it is

very true i'll also add this whiles i'm at it to give you an idea do keep in mind this drive is in use with only 10% free space
also it was updated from phison s8 to s10 with the newer version

here's the datasheet for it kingston.com/dat…pdf

and also here's a review thessdreview.com/fea…gb/

This is a great price, hot.

Keep in mind, these things get extremely hot (70c+) so some laptops can really up, it's very noticeable if you rest your laptop on your legs while you use it.

Hopefully they do. But if coming from a hard disk then any SSD is going to be better than that. And NVMe disks really excel massively over SATA disks in data transfer rate, both disks still have orders of magnitude IOPS higher than a hard disk and that’s what matters for responsiveness.
Does anyone know if this would be suitable for an early 2015 12” retina MacBook

Are NVMe and PCIe one and the same?

I just bought the Lenovo Ideapad 520s that comes with just a 128 GB SSD. Do you think this will be good addon for a second ssd?

Not exactly no. PCIe stands for pci express - a much improved version of the pci bus used on pretty much every motherboard. The pci bus generally means to most of us the pci / pcie slots that we typically plug add-in / expansion cards into such as sound cards or graphics cards. The bus does also control other elements too but it is essentially a high speed interface between the addin cards and the processor.

NVMe is a new type of storage controller specifically for Non Volatile Memory based storage. It utilises the pci express bus to tape into the high speed lanes to the processor and memory etc. NVMe addin cards that plug into a pci express slot were the first drives to appear. They were and still are expensive compared to regular SATA SSD or hard drives. These newer NVMe drives available now use the M2 slot (a new slot that’s been out about 18 months or so) to tap into pci express bus.

You can still get non-NVMe drives that fit this new socket. Their technology is still the same as most SATA 2.5” SSD drives but they are in the newer M2 form factor. They aren’t generally as quick as NVMe drives though as they can’t make use of the pcie bus and instead tap into a regular SATA port (albeit indirectly) I.e. no attached cable into a SATA port just the M2 interface consumes the SATA port to function.

Hope this helps. Sorry if I’m teaching you to suck eggs !

Thanks for the detailed explanation. Not been up to date with recent trends.
