For those looking for a reasonably priced SSD with reliable performance, you’re in luck. The Kingston A1000 SSD is now available in CyberpowerPC systems, and its incredible responsiveness and ultra-low latency makes it a great buy for anyone. Without further ado, let’s dive into its various features.

Durability: Kingston A1000 SSDs are built with NAND Flash semiconductor memory, allowing there to be no moving parts and lowering chances of hardware failure. Not only that, its shock and vibration resistance optimize its mobility, giving users the freedom to game on the go. It also runs cooler and quieter than a mechanical hard drive.

Speed: This SSD runs a whopping 20X faster than a 7200RPM hard drive, with high read/write speeds that boost performance immensely and improve old sluggish systems.

Design: Single-sided design allows the Kingston A1000 to easily integrate with M.2 connectors and find its place in slim notebooks/systems with limited space.

Variety of Capacity Choice: Kingston A1000 SSDs are available in a wide range of capacities, including 240GB, 480GB, and 960GB. These three capacities coincide with the following sequential read/write speeds, respectively: up to 1500/800 MB/s, up to 1500/900 MB/s, up to 1500/1000 MB/s.

Since the Kingston A1000 SSD is a relatively new addition, it isn’t yet included in any default CyberpowerPC configurations. However, it is fully customizable in all CyberpowerPC configurations, and with our July 4th Mega Sale coming up, lets go over several of the discounted configurations that would mesh well with the Kingston A1000 SSD.

First we have the VR Ready Deal GTX 1070 TI Gaming PC, the most popular model within the July 4th Mega Sale. It showcases an Intel® Core™ Processor i7-8700K, GeForce® GTX 1070 Ti 8GB GDDR5, 16GB ADATA XPG Z1 3000MHz RAM, 240GB ADATA ASU650 SSD + 2TB HDD Combo, and ASUS PRIME Z370-P ATX Motherboard. Subbing in the Kingston A1000 SSD at the 240GB capacity would save you 30 dollars, while the 480GB and 960GB capacity choices would cost a little extra. Regardless, any substitution of the ADATA SSD with the Kingston A1000 SSD is a solid choice, with reliability and responsivness all around. The VR Ready Deal GTX 1070 TI starts at a discounted price of $1595.

Next we have a special edition model, the July 4th Tracer II 15 Gaming PC. It stars an Intel® Core™ Processor i7-7700HQ, NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 Ti 4GB GDDR5, 15.6″ 1920 x 1080 LCD, 16GB 2400MHz SODIMM RAM, Intel HM175 Chipset, and 250GB WD Blue M.2 SATA SSD. With the Kingston A1000 SSD being so optimized for mobile PCs like the Tracer laptops, its a very viable substitution for the M.2 SATA SSD. The July 4th Tracer II 15 starts at a sale price of $849.

Last we have one of the higher end configurations, the Cyberpower Black Pearl Gaming PC. With an Intel® Core™ Processor i7-7800X, GeForce® GTX 1070 8GB GDDR5, 16GB ADATA XPG Z1 3000MHz RAM, 240GB ADATA ASU650 SSD + 2TB HDD Combo, ASUS TUF X299 MARK 2 Motherboard, 24X DVD±R/±RW Drive, and Phanteks Enthoo Pro M Gaming Case, it features some of the highest quality hardware around. Just like the VR Ready Deal GTX 1070 T1, substitutions for the Kingston A1000 SSD would cost a bit more for the 480GB and 960GB capacities, while the 240GB would lower the price by $30. The Black Pearl starts at $1705.
