Hi friends.

Here I tested all 4 devices and hope someone will find it helpful and hope will save him/her time googlong how fast these devices trully is.

KC3000 is really a best.

I am suprised that USB pendrive is faster then HDD (though external one).

Feel free to comment...

Yeaaah and imagine for me how big are these numbers, I grew up with HDDs 😄

Hi, I'm not a tech guru. Thanks for these figures... I would like to know.... should I replace my sata hdd with a ssd + m.2 nvme card or only slot in a m.2 nvme?

my laptop is a hd probook 450 g3. thanks appreciate any and all suggestions

Hehe, me too 🙂 My first ever SSD was the OCZ Agility 3 with 60GB. It was so shit but still so fast compared to my HDD's. Getting Windows on it was amazing, hehe.

Just a regular ol ssd is plenty. Your probook is also not guaranteed to have a m.2 slot but does have a sata.

 

Nvme vs sata drives for regular use are identical in speed

One way that I like NVMe drives is that I use them as a "USB pendrive". As you know, transfer is bottlenecked by the slowest link in the chain, and so copying data from a NVMe drive to a flash drive is still slow. That's why in addition to my NVMe drive in the PC, I use an external enclosure for another NVMe drive that I carry around as my portable SSD.

 

Not bad for a "USB stick", its a Samsung 970 Evo Plus (PCIe 3.0) inside

For that price you could pruchase separate external SSD m.2 and those have around that speed, from Sandisk or Samsung T series.
And I believe Kingston have one model I forgot which one so totally not worth buying nvme drive+external enclosure since those are expesnvie at least here.

Ah yes Kingston XS2000 2x faster then your nvme usb pen drive 😉

 

Please do not take offence for my apparent confusion or rudeness,it's not intent me to be like that,it's just my BPD,be nice to me,and I'll return twice better,be rude and usually I get easly pissed of...I'll try to help anyone here,as long as it's something I dealt with,and even if you think I'm rude or not polite,forgive me,  it's not me it's my BPD.

Yes, this device is bandwidth limited, so for when I feel I need it, I can just upgrade the enclosure to boost its speed further. The transfer speed is limited by the USB 3.1 gen 2 connection, not by the drive (though it as fast as a SATA SSD)

 

If I build a new PC, I could also repurpose it as the internal drive, and that flexibility is good to have. The Kingston drive is good, has a competitive price, but is not cheaper than the combo, and there is no reason to buy it if you have a perfectly good drive lying around. 😉

Hmm, just noticed smth, how come SEQM Q1T1 I have such low numbers?

Lower then your 970 evo plus.

Soometing ain' right..

It is KC3000 1TB

Check your run settings, you aren't doing SEQ1M Q1T1.

 

But as usual, don't make a meal out of it, its not a big deal, benchmarks are just benchmarks.....

Yes just noticed.

Why won't display SEQ1M Q1T1?

Need newer version of CD?

My question is if I should replace the hdd with ssd and also add the nvme "card"

Naaah smth ain't right.

4KiB numbers with KC3000 should be waaaaaay higher.

Hmmm...

You can if you need the storage. Dont get more than you need basically.

 

Also verify if its a m.2 sata or actual nvme m.2 slot and what key it is. That probook has A LOT of varities

Thanks, what would be the difference? I'm no guru, but I figured the sata is the 2.5" drive slot, and the m.m is that other card slot..... My hd has both those slots....the sata is currently occupied by a HSGT 1tb sata hdd, the m.2 slot is empty... I'm doing a lot of video editing and need large storage space

The difference is in the pins order and the "key/latch" between them....
I mean physically they look diffferent looking at the side where pins are.
