Big SSD Performance in a Small SSD Case

Kingston KC380

Kingston's SSDNow KC380 1.8" solid-state drive features a small case form factor that fits in notebooks, sub-notebooks, tablet PCs and netbooks with a smaller physical device storage footprint. Lighter than a traditional hard drive, it lets users take advantage of the durability, reliability and performance improvements of Flash memory in systems currently using 1.8" hard drives, and is the ultimate hard drive replacement.

KC380 consumes less power and generates less heat than a traditional HDD -- at a fraction of the cost of a new system. It offers advanced data integrity protection and an award-winning SandForce second-generation SSD processor with DuraClass technology.

DuraClass features include DuraWrite and advanced wear-leveling to extend the life of the drive and garbage collection and over-provisioning for consistent performance and a longer life for your SSD and your data.

Kingston KC380
  • 1.8" form factor
  • Advanced data integrity protection built-in
  • Ultimate hard disk drive (HDD) replacement
  • Shock-proof -- they won't crash if dropped

Breathes new life into your laptop.

Proves that the Windows Experience Index is a rough tool - you won't improve your net score unless the hard drive was the lowest point. But you will still see big speed improvements, especially if it is graphics holding your score down.

From booting up to just about everything else, things are just quicker, and the laptop seems more reliable too.

Just be aware that this is a 1.8" drive, not a standard 2.5" laptop drive. I made the mistake the other way, so I think it's worth pointing out. These smaller ones are fitted to smaller ultra-light laptops and I expect Netbooks and the like.

If you are replacing a 160GB hard drive with this 120GB SSD and want to do so with an image copy rather than a rebuild, you MUST repartition the donor drive to be smaller than 120GB or it won't work, regardless of the actual data volume you have on the donor disk.

I found it hard trying to find a 1.8inch ssd at a reasonable price to fit my HP 2540p as the standard hdd is just poor and has packed up twice. Works well and has speeded up my laptop immensely.

Cracking drive. The original hard drive in the machine was not solid state. A replacement of the same spec was much more expensive. This hard drive was much cheaper. The original machine had an okay spec, but nothing special - until this hard drive was placed in there. With 4GB of RAM and Windows 7, boot up times and shutdown times feel almost instant. Easy to install into the machine and OS install was as simple as before, only faster. Well worth a look if you want to speed up your machine, very, very snappy!

Put this in an old laptop with Ubuntu linux and it completely transformed it. Easy to fi,t data transfer and boot up speed is excellent and even my impatient son isn't left waiting Much quieter than the old hard drive and everything is just so much quicker. Now switching off is as fast as suspending the computer.

Bought this to go into a Sony Vaio VGN-P device. it was a tight squeeze but that's the devices issue, plugged it in and sometimes it was recognised sometimes not. put it to once side and ordered an Intel device instead - far more reliable. Hoping to find another application for it in the future.

SSD drive flies. Brings new life to my Elitebook 2540P. Remember to set as SSD in defrag so it TRIMs. Recommended.
