Although manufacturers are working in recent times to get their new SSDs in M.2 format and with PCI-Express interface, extremely fast devices that deliver the best possible performance, the reality is that the average user throws more towards the SSDs with SATA 3 interface because his price per GB ratio It is much better, and today they are perfect substitutes for traditional hard drives because they provide great capabilities.
Ability to forget hard drives
Now Kingston has decided to go one step further and offer a 2 TB new version of your KC600, the top-selling SSD of the brand, so that users can forget about having a small SSD for the operating system and programs and a normal hard drive to store the rest of things, since with an SSD of this capacity we can use it to all without having to worry about space.
And, not surprisingly, it offers a 1200 TBW durability which means that we could use it for many years without reaching its limit. Sure, the manufacturer offers a 5-year warranty on this device.
Kingston KC600 2 TB performance
The theoretical performance of this unit is the same as 1 TB capacity: 550 MB / s read and 520 MB / s write, some figures that once we connect the device to a PC and make a benchmark are reflected as follows:
The reality is that the theoretical data is very close to the real ones, even the device exceeds the theoretical reading data. Therefore, it is an SSD that takes almost to the limit the performance of its SATA 3 interface, with excellent durability and now with a capacity that nothing has to envy to normal hard drives.
And, all this, at a fairly competitive price since Kingston has announced that these 2 TB KC600 SSDs will go on sale at a price of 299 euros, although it is high for a SATA 3 SSD, it should be borne in mind that the price per GB is 0.146 euros. In theory it will reach stores around the world in a couple of weeks.
