Speedy, small and affordable.
I have used ATTO Disk Benchmark to get the average read and write speeds, while the burst speed was measured using HD Tach.
Since the HyperX SATA III SSD will lead in everything, I’ll just talk about comparisons with the WD Caviar Black and the V-Series SSD.
Obviously the burst speed in the Caviar Black is pretty high due to the faster SATA III interface, and the huge 64MB cache. The read and write speeds advertised by Kingmax are up to 260mbps and 150mbps respectively. The write speed may not be up there, but the read speed definitely is.
Ultimately the Kingmax KM21 128GB SATA II SSD represents extremely good value for money in a very attractive form factor. Speeds are as high as one would expect from a 120GB SATA II SSD by seriously boosting overall system performance. If you’re planning to upgrade your laptop to an SSD, the Kingmax KM21 128GB SSD should be on top of your list.
