While new form factors and higher speed SSDs have been dominating much of the news cycle this year, there is still a big market for 2.5″ SATA SSDs. If you are looking to finally move on from that ageing high capacity HDD, then Kingston’s new KC600 SSDs might be the perfect replacement.
Today Kingston is launching the KC600 series SSD, a 2.5″ drive with a SATA 3.0 interface, 3D TLC NAND and up to 2TB of storage space. Security features are a big part of the package here too, with AES-XTS 256-bit hardware based encryption, or TCG Opal 2.0 and eDrive encryption.
The Kingston KC600 SSD will be available in capacities of 256GB, 512GB, 1TB and 2TB with read/write speeds up to 550/520MB/s. The first two are shipping starting this week, while the 1TB and 2TB drives will take a little longer to hit store shelves. For now, we don’t have pricing information but as soon as stock lands in the UK, we shall be able to update.
When availability does come to retail, the KC600 will be sold as a standalone SSD, or with a kit for easy desktop or laptop installation.
