Uncompromising performance, amazing value

Kingston’s A2000 NVMe PCIe SSD is an affordable storage solution with impressive performance. Boasting read/write speeds of up to 2,200/2,000MB/s*, A2000 delivers 3x the performance of a SATA SSD with quicker loading times, less power consumption and lower heat. A2000 SSD is designed for the entry-level user, purpose-built system manufacturer, DIY system builder and those seeking to upgrade their PC. With a single-sided slim M.2 design, A2000 works to its full potential when installed in an Ultrabook or a small-form-factor PC (SFF PC) system.

Available in capacities from 250GB–1TB** to meet your system’s needs. A2000 is a self-encrypting drive that supports end-to-end data protection using 256-bit XTS-AES hardware-based encryption, and allows the use of independent software vendors with TCG Opal 2.0 security management solutions such as Symantec™, McAfee™, WinMagic® and others. A2000 also has built-in eDrive support, a security storage specification for use with BitLocker.

  • NVMe PCIe performance at a fraction of the cost
  • Supports a full-security suite (TCG Opal, XTS-AES 256-bit, eDrive)
  • Ideal for Ultrabooks and small-form-factor PC (SFF PC) systems
  • Upgrade your PC with up to 1TB**

* Based on “out-of-box performance” using a PCIe 3.0 motherboard. Speed may vary due to host hardware, software and usage. IOMETER random 4K read/write is based on an 8GB partition.

**Some of the listed capacity on a Flash storage device is used for formatting and other functions and is thus not available for data storage. As such, the actual available capacity for data storage is less than what is listed on the products. For more information, go to Kingston’s Flash Memory Guide at kingston.com/fla…ide.

Don't have much faith with Kingston SSD's. Had one in the past which had to be RMA'ed after couple of years. Had another which was DOA. I would personally get the Crucial P1 for £102 but at a slower write speed of 1,750 MB/s

I'd take the Sabrent Rocket over the P1, the P1 is QLC. The Sabrent and this are TLC. At the same price TLC is the better buy.

Remind me again what the difference between QLC and TLC is ? TLC is newer tech but lasts less than QLC, right?

TLC is older actually. It is faster than QLC and doesnt tend to slow down as much under sustained writes when the SLC cache runs out. It is meant to tolerate more writes too.

QLC is newer, designed to be cheaper. It's very slow writing to QLC (really slow, slower than a mechanical drive). To get round the slow writes the drive treats a portion of it as SLC flash (TLC does the same). Writing to the cache is very fast, but once the cache runs out QLC slows to a crawl.

100% this. 5yr warranty and maxed out NVME speeds is unbeatable for the prices. I've got my eyes on a 1tb Sabrent NVME for my Black Friday purchase as a games drive. Seen it for as low as £98 but I'm hoping it can get down to £80 on sale and I'll jump.
