Crystal Disk Benchmark is used to measure read and write performance through sampling of random data which is, for the most part, incompressible. Performance is virtually identical, regardless of data sample so we have included only that using random data samples.
The toughest benchmark available for solid state drives is AS SSD as it relies solely on incompressible data samples when testing performance. For the most part, AS SSD tests can be considered the ‘worst case scenario’ in obtaining data transfer speeds and many enthusiasts like AS SSD for their needs. Transfer speeds are displayed on the left with IOPS results on the right.
Our original testing of the prototype JMicron version of this type yielded practically the same results and I have to be the first to admit, for such a great price point, this is an excellent NVMe external enclosure solution.
While we wouldn’t recommend investing so heavily on a premium 2TB M.2 NVMe SSD for this enclosure, there are certainly many out there that makes this absolutely one of the best external storage solutions available right now, at least for 10Gbps data transfer.
