Like we saw with Anvil's, the A2000 doesn't deliver a score that wows. This is because much of AS SSD's scoring is based on 4K-64 Threads which isn't really where mainstream users will spend much if any time. However, the A2000 again serves up the goods where it matters most to the end-user, delivering over 16K random read IOPS at QD1.

Kingston's A2000 is running at full factory rated sequential speeds at 128KB transfers, which is exactly what we are looking for, along with exceptional small-file performance.
