Kingston NV1 SSD performance

When the drive was connected and formatted it reported the space of 465.76GB. So, when you connect the 500GB one you’ll get such space.

We ran CrystalDiskMark 6, The sequential read was 2552 MBps and 1958 MBps read score. It is definitely higher. The company claims 35x to the 7200 RPM hard disk. I will say some how they are correct where 7200 RPM hdd gets 175.8/143 speed rating with the crystal disk mark.

We faced some issue while getting the diagnostic data. or any security related option with the drive.


Its an amazing entry level and inexpensive upgrade to the laptop/ desktop which supports M2 SSDs. The performance will rocket up for the laptop for sure.
