The case has a bit of heft to it compared to other SSDs we have reviewed, with a very sturdy feel. The KC has a single drive sticker on the top, showing the drive information, including Kingston SKC100S3/120G SSD, firmware revision, and serial number amongst other things.
The side profile of the SSD shows the seam where the top and bottom case segments meet and align for a precise fit in any 2. The front of the Kingston SKC100S3/120G SSD has a standard SATA data and power interface, with service pins next to it.
While most other Kingston SKC100S3/120G SSD manufacturers opt for using standard Phillips head or Torx screws, Kingston went a non-tamper route to further limit users from opening the drive. Considering there is a warranty void if removed sticker on the back and no user-serviceable parts inside, there is really no reason why anyone should need to open up the case during the use of this SSD.
Inside we see that Kingston continues the tradition of using thermal pads above and below the Kingston SKC100S3/120G SSD board to draw heat away from components such as the SandForce SF controller and Intel NAND. Good thermals are important though, especially if an SSD is going to be pressed hard, so while a seemingly small design feature, for heavy use this is a critical addition.
To give an example of where these played a part, in our enterprise testing the thermal pads helped draw much of the heat away from the components and evenly dissipated it into the case. They are divided evenly on both sides of the circuit board, with Kingston SKC100S3/120G SSD on top and eight on the bottom. The comparables used for this review Kingston SKC100S3/120G SSD the following recently tested SSDs: We used IOMeter with a large-block transfer to see how the drive performed in our consumer test rig.

With incompressible data speeds dropped to Our next test sticks with the same large-block transfer but switches from sequential to random Kingston SKC100S3/120G SSD. This slowed to The strong low queue depth write performance was also shared by its consumer-oriented HyperX SSD variant.
Kingston SKC100S3/120G SSD our low-queue depth 4K read and write test, we look at write Kingston SKC100S3/120G SSD of each SSD. Lower numbers are better, since it means less wait time for activity to process. Max latency is also important, although that number can change as the NAND wears over time. Our last group of consumer IOMeter synthetic benchmarks looks at mixed-load server profiles including Database, Workstation, File Server, and Webserver.
Real-World Benchmarks One thing we try to focus on with our reviews is how any given drive might perform under real-world conditions. For the average user, trying to translate random 4K write speeds into an everyday situation can be difficult. It helps Kingston SKC100S3/120G SSD comparing drives in every Kingston SKC100S3/120G SSD possible, but it doesn't exactly work out into faster everyday usage or better game loading times.

For this reason we turned to our StorageMark traces, which include HTPC, Productivity, and Gaming traces to help readers find out how a drive might rank under their conditions. The first real-life test is our HTPC scenario. In this test we include: In this trace we recorded 2,MB being written to the drive and 1,MB being read. Kingston SKC100S3/120G SSD
Our second real-life test covers disk activity Kingston SKC100S3/120G SSD a productivity scenario. For all intents and purposes this test shows drive performance under normal daily activity for most users. In this trace we recorded 4,MB being written to the drive and 2,MB being read. Our third real-life test covers disk activity in a gaming environment.

The trace captures the heavy read activity of each game loading from the start, as well as textures as the game progresses. In this trace we recorded MB being written to the drive and 7,MB being read. Enterprise Synthetic Benchmarks Flash media for the enterprise needs to be tested in a different manner than standard platter drives and even client-based SSDs. Flash performance changes the longer you write to a drive and speeds taper down until the drive hits its steady state speed.
In an enterprise setting, initial burst is hardly relevant if after one hour of use the drive will never see Kingston SKC100S3/120G SSD speed again. For Kingston SKC100S3/120G SSD reason, all of the following benchmarks were pre-conditioned and recorded in a steady-state mode.
All tests are performed in steady-state. This means it scored higher in write-intensive conditions.
