The numbers look very good, especially the drives sequential write performance where it is delivering almost 700 MB/s more than factory specs. This is not totally uncommon, but we rarely see this from a drive that has been on the market for a while.

We are mainly focused on read performance when evaluating Anvil's scoring. The KC2000 gives us two things we are looking for, a read score of over 6,000 and 4K QD1 read performance of over 15K IOPS.

We are meeting or exceeding factory max IOPS specs despite our more demanding user state.
