HD Tune – Sequential reading test

I present the graph below for comparison
with other recently tested drives.

The performance of the Kingston V+ 200 is good
for a drive that uses asynchronous NAND.

ATTO disk benchmark

ATTO has become a standard tool for
measuring the data throughput of HDD and SSD. It measures the performance of
reading and writing, using different file sizes and block sizes.

As we can see ATTO not only verifies the
numbers that Kingston reports, but in this case it’s able to show an impressive
result for both read and write speeds. The write speed is up to 531MB/Sec write
and the read speed is 550MB/Sec.

CrystalDiskMark 3.0

Crystal Disk Mark is quite a handy
benchmarking application, as it focuses on the file sizes that can cause a
problem on a system drive.

By default the CrystalDiskMark uses random
data, and we can get a more realistic view of how the drive performs. In this
case the Kingston V+ 200 shows its limits, mainly because of the asynchronous
NAND that it uses.

AS SSD Benchmark

AS SSD benchmark is a benchmarking tool
specifically designed to test SSDs. The application tests sequential reading
and writing performance, 4K random reading and writing performance.

AS SSD benchmark also tests 4K threaded
performance. This is very exciting, as this test is the first available test
that I am aware of, that simulates how a PC operating system actually works. A
modern PC and OS, such as Windows Vista/7 does not just run a single thread at
a time, it runs many threads. The AS SSD benchmark "4K 64Thrd" tests
run 64 threads simultaneously throughout the test. If this result is good, then
you can be pretty sure the drive will perform extremely well as a system drive.

After the tests complete, AS SSD benchmark
derives a total score for the drive being tested. This is based on all aspects
of the test results, and gives an indication of how the drive is performing

Now let’s look at the result for the Kingston
V+ 200 SSD in the form of a screenshot. All our other comparison drives’
results are presented in the form of a graph.

Again we can see that the performance is


The Kingston V+ 200 SSD has good
performance if you want a drive to use in an office environment, if you are an
enthusiast you should look at the HyperX
