Exceptional responsiveness and ultra-low latency.
Kingston’s A1000 solid-state drive is an entry-level PCIe NVMe™ solution with a single-sided M.2 22x80mm design. This form factor is ideal for thinner notebooks and systems with limited space. Using a PCIe NVMe™ Gen 3.0 x2 interface, 4-channel Phison E8 controller and 3D NAND Flash, this drive offers read and write speeds of up to 1,500MB/s and 1,000MB/s*. It is 2X faster than a SATA-based SSD and 20X faster than a traditional hard drive, offering exceptional responsiveness, ultra-low latency and throughput.

More reliable and durable than a hard drive, A1000 is built with NAND Flash semiconductor memory. There are no moving parts, making it far 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.

A1000 is available in multiple capacities from 240GB–960GB** 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 with enough storage capacity for all your files.

* Based on “out-of-box performance” using a SATA Rev 3.0 / PCIe 3.0 motherboard. Speed may vary due to host hardware, software and usage. IOMETER random 4K read/write is based on an 8GB partition.
** Some of the listed capacity on a Flash storage device is used for formatting and other functions and is thus not available for data storage. As such, the actual available capacity for data storage is less than what is listed on the products. For more information, go to Kingston’s Flash Guide at kingston.com/flashguide.

- 20X faster than a 7200RPM hard drive*
- M.2 2280 form factor
- Single-sided design
- Multiple capacities up to 960GB**
