Kingston SSD Now V+ 256GB Review
HD Tune Pro
Now and again we mention about how flat a graph is. Normally it's akin to the write graph you can see on the right here. But let's stop a moment and have a look at the read graph on the left.
Seriously, is that the flattest graph it's possible to have? Barring a little spurt as the test began, it is flatter than a pancake, made in the Netherlands, imported to the Fens, run over by a steamroller and then ironed. Consistency almost doesn't do it justice.
Write speeds are, understandably, not quite as smooth as the read speeds. Although not much would be. Nonetheless there aren't any major troughs and it is all within 10mb/s or so.
In keeping with the smoothness we see above, the Everest Ultimate read test also gives us a very flat, albeit oddly purple, graph.
When we compare it to the current OC3D champion, the Corsair Nova, we see that although the Nova is faster, there is a marked fluctuation in performance. The Kingston is like a train, it just keeps ploughing onwards.
