The SSD M.2 KingSpec NT-128 disk comes in a box with plastic and cardboard protection to avoid blows in the transport and includes a fixing screw as the only accessory. If we look at the motherboard we found the controller INIC-1608 which is the basic model of the range. As storage we have NAND 3D but the brand is not recognizable.
First we check the data of the KingSpec NT-128 SSD M.2 with the CrystalDiskInfo Software where we can see and contrast the specifications of this SSD M.2 SATA III. The data is correct and matches the advertised, we have 128 GB capacity and SATA / 600 interface with SMART, NCQ and TRIM support.
We perform this classic test in the KingSpec NT-128 where we can see that at the reading level maintains the type in front of a Samsung 850 EVO 250 GB. At the level of sequential reading and writing it has fine results compared with others.
Anvil’s Storage Utilities
We passed this test in the KingSpec NT-128 and compared the results with the popular Samsung 850 EVO 250GB model. As we see the results are maintained and we are facing a SSD with good performance for the price.
AS SSD M.2 Benchmark
On the KingSpec NT-128 we passed the AS SSD M.2 Benchmark test and compared it with the results of a Samsung 850 EVO 250GB disk. In this test the performance of this M.2 SSD ok in reading and writing care more lower.
In this benchmark you can see how the KingSpec NT-128 works against others SSD M.2 models that are now popular in the market. The values are ok compared to others that assemble similar components, the price is the key for this product.
- Read/Write SEQ
These data refer to the processes we do when copying a specific file continuously, for example when copying or writing a large file such as movies or ISO discs. This value defines the continuous transfer rate, which is important for storage units.
- Read/Write 4K
This data refers to the random accesses that the disk makes to files of size 4K. This data is significant because it defines for example how the OS can read system files or accessing small files, an important information to feel the system more fast.
After passing all the tests to the SSD M.2 KingSpec NT-128 disk we can only say that we are dealing with a product with a low price and acceptable performance for normal use. We have correct results in sequential read and write speeds, better any speed of an eMMC. Some speeds that are similar to other SSDs in the same format, an acceptable solution when expanding our internal storage.
Undoubtedly a product with a very low price with fine specs, if we want to expand a mini PC or a laptop with little internal memory in a simple way and it is an alternative if we are lucky with the compatibility. You can compare this disk with other models of cheap SSD M.2 discs at Amazon.com or Newegg.com.
