Kingston's M.2 SATA solid-state drive features a thin, compact form factor that saves space in small design embedded systems, appliances and ultra thin computing devices. It meets the M.2 industry standard and integrates into designs with next-generation connectors. It's caseless to allow for easier design-in and lighter weight than a cased SSD and match today's thin-and-light systems. Its 2280 module optimizes performance with advanced garbage collection, wear-leveling and TRIM support to keep performance consistent over the life of the drive. DevSleep, a new addition to the SATA specification, is an efficient power management option that minimizes power consumption and extends battery life. This M.2 SATA version also features firmware-based power loss protection to maintain data integrity. In the case of unexpected power loss, the drive ensures that data in cache is constantly flushed and hardened to NAND. This enables the drive to recover if there's ever an unsafe shutdown. For added peace of mind, the M.2 SATA SSD is backed by a three-year warranty, free technical support and legendary Kingston reliability.
