Kingston is well known for its data storage products. This time we try to review the Kingston XS2000. Although cloud-based storage is starting to be seen, external storage solutions are the main choice in backing up files or moving data between devices. Because of this, the need for an external SSD is still high. However, the current consideration is not only fast. Users are looking for an external SSD that is compact so that it is easy to store and carry around. This is what Kingston then answered through the XS2000 device. Here’s a short review?

As for the design, the interesting thing when you unpack the Kingston XS2000 is its size. The dimensions of this external SSD are so small, reminiscent of the Player MP3 players from a few years ago. And Kingston presents the XS2000 measuring 69.5 x 32.6 x 13.5 mm and weighing only 28.9 grams. The design is minimalist. There are two metal panels mounted on the top and bottom.
The use of metal here is not without reason, all for the sake of providing more durability to this device. This drive is IP55 certified, which means it is dust and splash-resistant. Kingston also provides a rubber case to attach to this external SSD, thus providing more protection against impacts or drops.
This Kingston SSD uses a USB Type C port for faster data transfer speeds. In the purchase package, a USB Type C cable is provided to connect to the laptop, desktop, and other devices.
Right near the USB Type C port, there is an indicator LED that glows blue and flashes when it’s active. The light itself is quite dim, so it’s not too flashy.
The Kingston XS2000 is the first portable SSD to use the SM2320 platform from Silicon Motion and the USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 standard with a maximum transfer rate of 20 Gbps on supported devices.
Kingston xs2000 Performance
For performance, we tested the capabilities of the Kingston XS2000 with CrystalDiskMark, and we saw a sequential read speed of 1064.17 Mbps. While the write speed of this SSD is 401.38 Mbps. Then we had time to test using Disk Speed Test. At writing speed, it touched 687.8 Mbps while reading 836.9 Mbps.
Whereas on AS SSD, we see low sequential read and write speeds. Thus the ability to read and write 4K.
This Kingston XS2000 SSD product is equipped with a small size and a simple appearance. But even though it is small, it has good performance even though we have to need the right device to enjoy the maximum speed that this device has to offer.
If users want to look for external storage with high performance and compactness because it can be stored in a pocket, the Kingston XS2000 can be the choice. For the price problem, users have to spend an extra budget because this SSD is not cheap. Starting from a capacity of 500 GB, it is sold for $ 119.23
