  1. EXCERIA PRO SSD / EXCERIA G2 SSD: Sequential speeds are measured with CrystalDiskMark 8.0.1 x64, Q=32, T=1.
    EXCERIA PLUS G2 SSD / EXCERIA PLUS SSD / EXCERIA SSD: Sequential speeds are measured with CrystalDiskMark 6.0.2 x64, Q=32, T=1.
    EXCERIA SATA SSD: Sequential speeds are measured with ATTO v3.05, QD10.
    These values are the best values obtained in a specific test environment at KIOXIA Corporation and KIOXIA Corporation warrant neither read nor write speeds in individual devices. Read and write speed may vary depending on a device used and file size read or written.
  2. EXCERIA PRO SSD/ EXCERIA G2 SSD: 4KiB random performance is measured with CrystalDiskMark 8.0.1 x64, Q=32,T=16.
    EXCERIA PLUS G2 SSD / EXCERIA PLUS SSD / EXCERIA SSD: 4KiB random performance is measured with CrystalDiskMark 6.0.2 x64, Q=32,T=8.
    EXCERIA SATA: 4KiB random performance is measured with CrystalDiskMark 5.1.2 x64 QD32.
    These values are the best values obtained in a specific test environment at KIOXIA Corporation and KIOXIA Corporation warrant neither read nor write speeds in individual devices. Read and write speed may vary depending on a device used and file size read or written.
  3. Definition and conditions of TBW (Terabytes Written) are based on JEDEC standard; JESD219A Solid-State Drive (SSD) Endurance Workloads, July 2012, and defined for the service life.
  4. MANUFACTURER’S WARRANTY IS EFFECTIVE EITHER (I) WARRANTY PERIOD FROM THE DATE OF PURCHASE IN ITS ORIGINAL SEALED PACKAGING OR (II) FOR THE TIME PERIOD UNTIL THE "PERCENTAGE LIFE LEFT" WILL BE ZERO, WHICHEVER IS SHORTER. The "Percentage Life Left" can be found using "Health" gauge of the SSD Utility for KIOXIA products, which is available at "personal.kioxia.com/support/".

Definition of capacity: KIOXIA defines a megabyte (MB) as 1,000,000 bytes, a gigabyte (GB) as 1,000,000,000 bytes and a terabyte (TB) as 1,000,000,000,000 bytes. A computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using powers of 2 for the definition of 1GB = 230 = 1,073,741,824 bytes and therefore shows less storage capacity. Available storage capacity (including examples of various media files) will vary based on file size, formatting, settings, software and operating system, such as Microsoft Operating System and/or pre-installed software applications, or media content. Actual formatted capacity may vary.

A kibibyte (KiB) means 210, or 1,024 bytes, a mebibyte (MiB) means 220, or 1,048,576 bytes, and a gibibyte (GiB) means 230, or 1,073,741,824 bytes.

IOPS: Input Output Per Second (or the number of I/O operations per second)

MTTF (Mean Time to Failure) is not a guarantee or estimate of product life; it is a statistical value related to mean failure rates for a large number of products which may not accurately reflect actual operation. Actual operating life of the product may be different from the MTTF.

Read and write speed may vary depending on the host device, read and write conditions, and file size.

Subject to Change: While KIOXIA has made every effort at the time of publication to ensure the accuracy of the information provided herein, product specifications, configurations, prices, system/component/options availability are all subject to change without notice.

Product image may represent design model. Images for illustration purpose only. The product appearance may differ from the actual product. Actual number of flash components differs by drive capacity.
