Kingston KC1000 240Gb may work on PCIe 3 that is undoubtedly slower than PCIe Gen4. The sequential write speed is 1600 Mbps, that is slower than has most of rivals. The drive can write 300 TBW, that is pretty good in comparison with nearest rivals. Overall, Kingston KC1000 240Gb has more cons and our editor strongly do not advise to have it.
- Slow writing speed
- PCIe 3.0
