Kingston Releases Entry-level UV300 SSD In India

Kingston, the independent world leader in memory products, today, announced the release of the ultra-value UV300 solid-state drive (SSD) in India. It is Kingston’s first SSD to use TLC (triple-level cell) NAND to provide speed and performance at the best possible price. The new UV300 SSD is now available in 120GB, 240GB and 480GB capacities at MRPs of Rs. 3700, Rs. 6,500 and Rs. 12,700 respectively.

Replacing a computer’s hard disk drive (HDD) with the economical UV300 SSD is like gaining a whole new system, as it will run up to 10x faster2. UV300 SSD is powered by the Phison S10 quad-core controller for optimized performance and endurance. It has incredible read speeds of up to 550MB/s and write speeds up to 510MB/s. This means faster startup/shutdown times and overall system responsiveness so users can wait less to do the things they want to do on a PC.

“We are proud to offer a value-oriented, high-performance SSD to the Indian market,” said Nathan Su, Flash Memory Sales Director, APAC Region, Kingston®. “Switching to an SSD is one of the best things a PC owner can do to make their system run faster. UV300 provides that performance boost at a great price and is the perfect entry-level drive for anyone considering an upgrade to SSD technology.”

Kingston UV300 SSD is available in all leading retail outlets and will soon be available on ecommerce sites. This new SSD is backed by a three-year limited warranty, free technical support and legendary Kingston reliability. For more information, visit

1. Some of the listed capacity on a Flash storage device is used for formatting and other functions and thus is 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 Memory Guide at
2. Based on “out-of-box performance” using a SATA Rev. 3.0 motherboard. Speed may vary due to host hardware, software, and usage. IOMETER Random 4k Random Read/Write is based on 8GB partition.
3. Total Bytes Written (TBW) is derived from the JEDEC Client Workload (JESD219A).
