ASUS ZenBook UX430UA Ultrabook Review

M.2 interface

To test the speeds of the 256GB SATA M.2 SSD that ships with the ZenBook, we ran CrystalDiskMark 5.2.1.


The UX430UA’s SSD delivers decent speeds for a SATA SSD, but really we would have liked to see a NVMe SSD as these are not hideously expensive anymore and considerably quicker. The 256GB capacity is adequate, but 512GB is a more comfortable choice these days.

USB 3.0

The UX430UA has a single USB 3.0 port, into which we plugged a 32GB SanDisk Ultra USB 3.0 thumb drive.

These results are reasonable for this thumb drive.
