It features enterprise-grade SMART, Data Integrity Protection with DuraWrite technology as well as RAISE support that reduces the number of uncorrectable errors in the drive.

The new KC300 line of SSDs will be available in 60, 120, 180, 240 and 480GB capacities with sequential read and write performance of up to 525MB/s and 500MB/s and PCMark Vantage HDD suite score of up to 57,000.

The entire line features a three-year warranty and MTBF of 1 million hours. As noted earlier, all capacity options will be available as a stand-alone SSD or as an upgrade bundle kit that includes 2.5-inch USB enclosure, 3.5-inch bracket, HDD cloning software and 7 to 9.5mm adapter.

Unfortunately, Kingston did not shed any light on the actual price or the availability date for the new KC300 SSD series.
