Kingston A2000 Review

👤by Matthew Hodgson Comments 📅02-10-19
Until now, NVMe storage has been out of the reach of a lot of people because of high pricing against a sense of diminishing returns over SATA solutions. However, as we progress into higher core count CPUs, larger games with longer loading times and increased demand from applications, the NVMe interface is definitely beginning to make more sense with its advanced data requesting processes and its ability to deliver data in a much faster manner.

The Kingston A2000 has been compared against some of the best drives from the PCI-E 3.0 generation but it certainly isn’t a poor performer. Read and write speeds in excess of 3000MB/s is all well and good but the number of programs that can genuinely take advantage of that are so few and far between that they’re hardly worth thinking about.

Enthusiasts, of course, will still want the best of the best and will search for just that, but budget-conscious users who want to add some fast storage to their machine will be very well served by the Kingston A2000. The 250GB and 500GB drives are easily useable by a good majority of people who don’t load their machines up with hundreds of games while the 1TB offers spades of capacity for plenty of applications and games.

This is definitely one of the best value NVMe SSDs on the market at the moment, at all three capacity levels, which is exactly what Kingston have aimed for; they’ve got their KC2000 SSD for those who need a little more oomph, but really, the majority of people won’t need that. Additionally thanks to Kingston’s expertise within the industry, the 5-year warranty and competitive wear ratings help give an even greater peace of mind.

If you’re currently in the market for a storage upgrade with an itch for the faster NVMe interface, the Kingston A2000 gets a whole-hearted approval from us.
