Here are some key details about the Kingston NV1 250GB M.2 2280 NVMe SSD:
Capacity: 250GB of storage space. Good for use as a boot drive or for program/game installs.
Form Factor: M.2 2280. This means it fits into the M.2 slot on modern motherboards, like those that use Intel LGA 1151 or AMD AM4 sockets. No need for a SATA power or data cable.
Interface: NVMe (PCIe Gen 3.0 x4). This provides faster read/write speeds than a SATA SSD.
Performance: Up to 1000 MB/s sequential read and 900 MB/s sequential write speeds. Random read/write IOPS of up to 95K/90K.
Warranty: 5 years limited warranty for peace of mind.
Endurance: Up to 500 terabytes written (TBW). Good for most consumer/light workstation usage cases.
Software: Includes cloning software to migrate data from an old drive. Also drive management software for firmware updates, security erase, etc.
Value: Affordably priced for the performance gains of NVMe over a SATA SSD. Good entry-level drive for a budget build or upgrade.
So in summary, the Kingston NV1 provides NVMe speeds at an affordable price point for a 250GB boot/game drive that shouldn’t bottleneck most systems. The 5-year warranty also provides good longevity for normal usage.
