Straight-line read speed is just shy of the figures produced by premium SSDs.

Sequential writing is rather low, sure, but Kingston doesn't hide this fact on the product literature. The sub-par performance shouldn't be exposed if used as a boot drive, as most of the workload will consist of reads.

The randomised writing of very small files is where the first-generation drive did well. It's even better with the 34nm-based SSD.
