Kioxia Exceria Pro 2TB SSD Review

Kioxia might not be as recognizable as Western Digital or Samsung, but when you know it used to be called Toshiba Memory, you realize you’re in pretty safe hands. Kioxia tends to focus on the affordable end of the storage market, in fact, we looked at the 2TB Exceria Plus a year ago and were generally impressed with its value proposition. However, Kioxia has yet to offer a fast PCIe 4.0 product, at least not yet.

The Exceria Pro’s main data is sequential reads and writes of 7,300MB/s and 6,400MB/s, which means it can compete with the fastest drives around. Not only that, but Kioxia also offers great value for money, with this 2TB drive priced at just £237. That makes it one of the cheaper next-gen PCIe 4.0 drives at just 12p/GB, although price cuts from other manufacturers do undercut this somewhat.
