Kingston KC2500 Review

👤by David Mitchelson Comments 📅20-08-20

If you’ve just come from the preceding pages you’ll be left in no doubt of the KC2500’s capabilities. This SSD takes performance into the upper echelons of the interface and in most of our tests came out as the victor.

In some of the read/write benchmarks we found the KC2500 fall behind some of the previously reviewed SSDs but in reality, most applications won’t be able to utilise such throughput. Instead, emphasis is placed more highly on stronger IOPS – along with great IOPS, the drive can handle input/output requests, data queuing and concurrent access much more efficiently. Thankfully, Kingston’s drive excels in this area and came out on top for IOPS performance.

KC2500 is available to buy in a variety of capacities from 250GB to 2TB. Our 1TB model is priced at 1TB Model - £172 GBP | $235 USD | $289 AUD. In some cases this means the KC2500 is a better value for money option and certainly when you weigh up the performance gains it totally makes sense to opt for Kingston’s offering if you are also seeking outright performance. This drive is also backed by a lengthy 5-year warranty which is considerably more generous than we’ve encountered for a storage drive.

Excellent performance and attractive pricing makes the KC2500 the obvious choice if you’re on the hunt for a new M.2 SSD!
