Kingston A400 comes in a very simple design, thin card and a transparent plastic cover. It is a standard 2,5 inch SATA SSD. There are no additional layers to protect the card from the damage. This takes a risk, especially through shipping. You get nothing else, no-SATA cable, no screws and no adhesive shim. The drive itself is just a simple plastic box with Kingston’s logo and a small sticker. These prove that this company is going to cut unnecessary budget to press the lowest budget.

  • Capacities Available

Kingston A400 series provide in 120GB, 240GB and 480GB. In case of performance, all three are rated at 500 Mbps for sequential reads. But the speed for writing is different, 320KBps, 350MBps and 450MBps each. As expected, the formatted capacity of 240GB is just 223.44GB.

  • Specification and Features

Just like another type of SSDs, the A400 completes with TLC (triple level cell) memories. This type of memory stores not two, but three bits per cell. This possible a higher data density, small manufacturing cost for the same capacity chip. TBW (Terabytes written) gives the consumer an expectation about how useful and easier the life they get from their buys and the figures are 40TB, 80TB and 120TB each for those three capacities. Kingston also specifies 1 million hours as the MTBF (mean time between failures).

  • Performance

Testing Kingston A400 in Windows 10 Home finds 3% Error Margin. The measurement of the performance of each drive is using Crystal Disk Mark. Analyzing the data from the test, Kingston A400 is faster with compressible data than with incompressible data. It means that its controller uses compression to speed up operations. Kingston looks similar on the sequential transfers, compete to its competitors. It is also faster in random accesses, mainly with 4kiB data blocked.

Adata SU650

Anybody must be ever heard about this product. Adata SU650 offers lot features similar to SSD chip which is coming from Samsung evo 860 with its 3D Nand, the further innovation and the next generation of 2D Nand Flash before.

3D Nand offers a higher capacity in shape of smaller sizing, compare to the previous type as usual, 2D Nand Flash. 3D Nand Flash needs a lower cost for each gigabyte. This kind of features is not available in the version of Kinston A400. 

  • Design and Packaging

Just like Kingston A400, Adata SU650 also comes in a very simple design, thin card and a transparent plastic cover. But, Adata SU650 comes a bit bigger and thicker than Kingston A400. Both packaging is so simple. There are no additional layers to protect the card from the damage. This takes a risk too, especially through shipping.

The drive itself is just a simple plastic box with Adata’s signature, little specific information about the type, a small sticker and the type of chip itself. These prove that this company is going to cut unnecessary budget to press the lowest budget too. In case, replacing one budget to increase another part of the chip’s performance, for example the 3D Nand Flash.

  • Capacities Available

Adata SU650 provide in 600GB until 960GB. In case of performance, Adata SU650 is a bit aggressive compete to other brands. It is 520Mb for reading and 450Mb for writing. No need to be wonder, because the support of 3D Nand Flash of its chip, it is brave enough to show bigger number and faster capability than Kingston A400 has been claimed.

  • Specification and Features

Adata SU650 exists with SLC Caching Features. This advance technology is possibly the chip to correct mistakes and making sure the performance is fully maximized. The Interface of this series is SATA 6Gb/s.

  • Performance

Testing Adata SU650 is using Lenovo 330, Celeron N4000 Processor with original HDD. By using this type of Laptop, hopefully it could show significant improvement of booting the performance of the device over all. For the up to dated device in this time, Celeron Processor had not applied a blower fan anymore.

This could make the temperature of operating Celeron not as high as others. Analyzing the data from the Crystal Disk Mask, Adata SU650 shows a higher number of its capability that has been claimed by the company. It is 562.6 from 520 for reading and 507.8 from 450 for writing. And the temperature itself is still normal. That is 38C. this performance proves that the effect of 3D Nand Flash features is truly significant
