CrystalDiskMark is a synthetic benchmark that tests both sequential and random small and mid-sized file transfers using incompressible data. It provides a quick look at best and worst case scenarios with regard to SSD
performance, best case being larger sequential transfers and worse case being small, random transfers.

Throughout the various CrystalDiskMark tests, the Kingston KC2000 consistently finishes about in the middle of the pack, with a slant towards better reads than writes. In the important Q1T1 test, the KC2000 has one of the better read scores, but writes trail all of the drives except for the Intel SSD 760P.
