Imation has launched a range of solid state drives and a new "easy-to-install" SSD "upgrade kit" to help consumers make the transition from hard disk to SSD technology.

Both drives feature ultra-thin profiles and shock resistance. Imation's new internal SSD drives will be available in 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch configurations, with capacities ranging from 32GB to 128GB.

The Imation M-Class SSD is said to be "ideal" for home users whereas the Imation S-Class SSD is aimed at the enterprise market.

The upgrade kit includes an Imation SSD, a USB-to-SATA or SATA connector cable, a power cable, Acronis True Image HD software for migrating operating systems, applications and data from an existing hard drive to the new SSD and what are said to be easy-to-follow upgrade instructions.

The new SSD products and kit are available now starting at £108 for the 32GB M-Class SSD.
