Kingston XS2000 Portable SSD Review

 

Highly portable ; Semi-ruggedized, with durability features ; Good scores in our performance benchmarks ; Capable of high speeds with the proper hardware ; Available in capacities up to 2TB

Requires uncommon USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 port for peak speeds ; Lacks SSD management software and hardware-based encryption ; Sequential write speeds a bit below its rating

What the tiny Kingston XS2000 Portable SSD lacks in size, it makes up for in speed and durability. This external drive is a top choice if you travel and work with large files.

Kingston XS2000 Portable SSD Review: Small Size with XL Performance

 

20Gbps performance at 10Gbps prices

+ Compact and light ; + Responsive performance ; + IP55 rated with rubber sleeve ; + 5-year warranty

- Small but very thick ; - Lacks encryption ; - Slow and inconsistent sustained write speeds

Kingston’s XS2000 is a responsive portable SSD that delivers up to 2 GBps of throughput and decent pricing, but it lacks the sustained write performance of more capable DRAM-equipped SSDs.

Kingston XS2000 USB 3.2 Gen 2 x 2 external SSD review

 

An undoubtedly fast external SSD but was it wise to release it with USB 4.0 just around the corner?

Fantastic speed if you have a compatible system ; 5-year warranty ; Good value for money ; Rugged with IP55 rating ; Very solidly built

Requires the right hardware to maintain USP ; Expensive if you just want plenty of fast storage
