Starting in August, You Can Add the New Kingston SSDNow KC300 as an Upgrade to Your CTL® Notebook!

Kingston SSDNow KC300

Now you can get the newest addition to the Kingston SSDNow family, the KC300 drive as an upgrade to your CTL® notebook. This latest drive will help to increase productivity by maximizing power efficiencies in notebook PCs. The KC300 is the next-generation business drive, replacing the Kingston V+200 and KC100 SSDs. One of the most power-efficient SSDs on the market, it provides up to 40 minutes more battery life than a hard drive to let you do more work from a single charge.

The drive features enterprise-grade SMART attributes, allowing IT departments to monitor wear range data, SSD life left, write amplification and total bytes written. KC300 comes equipped with Data Integrity Protection featuring DuraWrite™ technology to extend the life of the SSD by effectively and efficiently reducing the number of Flash writes via an intelligent compression engine without sacrificing data integrity. RAISE™ reduces the number of uncorrectable errors in the drive, over and above standard error code correction.
