Kingston's KC2000 has a lot to offer. Premium TLC flash, an industry-leading 5-year warranty, hardware encryption, cloning software, SSD toolbox, and an excellent endurance rating. As we mentioned earlier, the KC2000 appears to be one of the few SSD series that is not suffering cost mitigation changes that result in lower than expected performance.
Looking at our user experience rating, we find the KC2000 will deliver an overall user experience that is far better than some of the biggest names in the business. Whenever a drive scores 4,500 or more, we take notice, and the KC2000 has our attention.
Looking back at our testing results, we can find several areas where the KC2000 stands out as a Tier-1 performing SSD. Right out of the gate, we witnessed 4K QD1 random read performance that is well over 15K IOPS. Throughout our synthetic testing, we observed the KC2000 delivering sequential read performance that is much higher than factory specifications.
Additionally, we found the Kingston KC2000 is a true gaming SSD. The KC2000 delivered the third-fastest game level loading results we've seen from a 1TB class flash-based NVMe SSD. Kingston's KC2000 is the complete package and worthy of a TweakTown award.
