This SSD means business.
Kingston’s business-equipped KC100 solid-state drive is based on the award-winning SandForce second-generation SSD processor and features SATA Rev. 3.0 (6Gb/s) to deliver exceptional performance and speed. It’s backwards compatible — install in your current SATA Rev. 2.0 systems, then use again when you get new SATA Rev. 3.0 systems to help future proof your investment.
