Excellent quality SSD
Pros: I bought this drive fully aware that it lacks DRAM cache, which means that during random read/writes, it will significantly underperform compared to a flash SSD with a cache. That having been said, I purchased this drive to upgrade an 11 year old laptop that came equipped with an impossibly slow Western Digital Scorpio Blue 160GB mechanical HDD. As you can see from the attached CrystalDiskMark bench scores, the Kingbank SSDs (after a simple Windows image restore - running the same OS image/install) is anywhere from 8x to 55x faster on random 4k read/writes when compared to the old HDD. In comparison to an old 2.5inch HDD, even the Kingston Kingbank SSDs relatively meager (by SSD standards) random R/W performance is massively faster (not to mention enormously reduced latency).
Overall Review: As a mechanical HHD replacement in a relatively low-end machine, or as a secondary data SSD, the Kingbank SSDs is a pretty good value, and performs as expected.
