Kingston DC1500M 3.84TB SSD Review

We also tested the drive in a number of workload scenarios that it might face in real life. The IOMeter settings we used to test with are listed below:-

As you might expect for a drive designed to handle most of these scenarios, the DC1500M tackles these tests very efficiently with some strong bandwidth figures.
