Build of Kingston XS200
By the time you might have gone through the photos of the post and specification you must have notice that the Kingston XS200 is astonishingly a small portable SSD. Its tiny and it could fit any size of pockets. It might get lost in my Denim jeans huge pocket if there are multiple things in it. It’s an aluminum enclosure. So, it is definitely a good build quality, the aluminum acts a good heat decimator during the heavy work. There is only the Kingston logo at the top and the Type C port at the side for the rectangular tiny box.
For the design and build quality I can definitely say, the Kingston has done amazing job with Kingston XS200. It is better than my expectation and the Included rubber cover will help it protect the data and accidental falls. So, 9.5 out 10 for the design choices.
Performance of Kingston XS200
In general, the XS2000 did well in our presentation tests. Its Crystal DiskMark consecutive read score of 1,977MBps is common of a USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 drive, and basically coordinates with its 2,000MBps appraised speed. It composes speed is evaluated something similar yet we saw just 1,762MBps, the slowest among the Gen 2×2 drives we attempted, however that is still a lot quicker than any USB 3.2 Gen 2 drive. (Their compose speeds maximize at around 1,000MBps.)
Nonetheless, while replicating a document from the Computer to the Kingston XS2000 Portable SSD, we saw a normal compose speed of over 1,000MB/s. Thus, the scores are everywhere. This implies you can just accomplish the publicized rates on exceptionally present-day machines with help for USB 3.2 Gen 3.2 by means of the USB Type-C port.
So, we definitely seen the Kingston XS2000 portable SSD, just to confirm it could get connect to any device with the Type C port. We did connect it to Samsung S21 Ultra, Apple iPad Air 4th Gen and you could easily transfer and edit the data. I will one con is that you need a gen 2×2 type C cable to get the optimal performance from the device, also if you are looking for any device encryption software then this doesn’t bundle one with the hard disk.
