Kioxia Exceria SSD Roundup Review 1

Kioxia Exceria SATA SSD

Many people argue that SATA SSDs should go the way of the Dodo bird after the introduction of NVMe drives at affordable prices, but I disagree with that assessment. There are many places these drives are needed and many reasons to keep them around and utilise them. Whether you chose the drive because of the form factor, the price, or the protocol, it’s still a good choice.

Kioxia created the Exceria SATA SSD to be an easy and affordable upgrade for HDD users. It will instantly increase your systems performance and bootup time without breaking your budget. It is a great upgrade, especially for portable systems as an SSD pretty much is shock resistant which an HDD is far from. Don’t lose your data due to a random bump of your system with an SSD such as this one.

Performance and Endurance

SATA drives aren’t breaking any speed barriers, but they still do very well when you compare them to hard disk drives. Especially 2.5-inch HDDs. The Exceria SATA SSD delivers 555MB/s read performance and 540MB/s write performance. The random performance for the 960GB model is rated at 81K IOPS reading and 88K IOPS writing. That’s pretty good and due to the BiCS TLC NAND.

The TBW endurance is rated at 60TB per 240GB which makes this 960GB come in at 240TB. The MTBF is rated at 1.5 million hours which is pretty much standard for a drive such as this. Exceria backs the Exceria SATA SSD with a 3-year warranty.
