Works well but Linux users need to be aware of an issue

This product works well on Windows (I have two), and is very fast, but with Linux there's a problem that currently needs a workaround. Without this, the SSD may "lock up" several times a day.

Set your kernel command line to include "nvme_core.default_ps_max_latency_us=5500", which prevents the device from entering the deepest sleep mode, which would have triggered the lock up. You can find more info here: https://lore.kernel.org/linux-nvme/20210129052442.310780-1-linux@leemhuis.info/

Kingston A2000 1TB M.2 NVMe

The Kingston A2000 1TB M.2 NVMe solid state drive is good value for money. There are faster and more expensive drives but in my opinion and for my use, I find the Kingston A2000 1TB M.2 NVMe more than adequate. I have two of these drives and have had no problems. I am very satisfied with the performance and price.

Kingston A2000 1 TB M.2 NVMe Gen 3x4 SSD.

I purchased this drive as my Asus B450 M/B had the M.2 connector and this has been a boon to start up and general speed and response when using the comp. This is still only early days with this SSD but it seems to be doing as the advertising indicated. Very satisfied so far.

A good purchase for the price

fast and cheap!! Unless you need really top speed, then you pay twice the price for Crucial with 3.500 MB/s. I'm happy with 2.200 Mb/s for half price.

Killer deal

Been using this as a windows boot drive for 2 weeks and it is awesome, boots and is fully operational in 12 secs! Plenty of space for more files and applications too.

All good. But not as good as I hoped.

If you are going to use the encryption you need to know that it will not be set up properly if you install the OS first. Download the instructions from kingston FIRST before you put this in your machine! Believe me, it will save you a lot of time.

I set up windows then downloaded the instructions and then had to set up windows again.

Fast secondary drive

Purchased this about 4 months ago and I've so far have had no issues whatsoever. I'm using it as a secondary NVMe drive for games and VMs, while my OS/system drive is on a faster NVMe.
Highly recommend this SSD if you are looking for a good price to performance ratio.

Absolutely great!

It's a 1TB drive, the speeds are unbelievable! It runs very well and easy to install, don't need to spend your money on other expensive NVME's for daily use, games etc. No need for drivers or anything, it works great, has plenty of storage and super fast!
