From Hardware BBQ:

On most counts, Kingston SSDNow UV400 is a good drive for its cost. This entry-level will attract a lot of people moving out of 5,400 RPM/7200 RPM mechanical drive, mostly general purpose PCS and notebooks. It is just strange that Kingston doesn’t provide the space with this pack. Kingston UV400 does have a desktop upgrade kit which has a spacer too. All they have to do is fight the price war with other makes for the entry-level as well.
