Final Thoughts

Looking back at our test results we can only conclude that Kingston hit the mark with their A2000 1TB SSD. The drive delivers a user experience that is nearly on par with Samsung's EVO Plus and even better than a 970 Pro when it comes to gaming. When you stop and consider that Kingston is doing all this for less than 10 cents per gigabyte, it's easy to see why we consider the A2000 to be today's top value for mainstream users looking to upgrade to M.2 NVMe goodness.

When we compare the A2000 to its main competition, Intel's 660P, the A2000 beats it easily on every front. Not only does the A2000 deliver far superior performance to Intel's 660P, it does so for the same price. Additionally, Kingston's A2000 at 1TB is rated for 3x the endurance of Intel's 660P 1TB. That alone is reason enough to choose the A2000 over the 660P. In the end it is user experience that really matters and Kingston's A2000 is serving it up exceptionally well at an exceptional price point.

Kingston's A2000 1TB NVMe PCIe Gen4 x4 M.2 SSD is TweakTown approved and highly recommended.
