Taking names and kicking ass.

Good: Excellent performance; Very cheap compared to competition; Low 7mm profile
Bad: Nothing, really.
Price: AED 760
* The price is the Suggested Retail Price at the time of review. Please call a retailer to confirm the latest price for this product.

I have used ATTO Disk Benchmark to get the average read and write speeds, while the burst speed was measured using HD Tach.

The thing is, the Kingston HyperX 120GB SSD represents the norm when it comes to price and performance of SATA III SSDs of this capacity. However, with similar performance, in the same capacity, the Kingmax 120GB SATA III SSD comes in at almost half the price of the Kingston (AED 1,289).

With the release of their new SSDs, with extremely competitive pricing and similar performance to the competition, Kingmax is set to make some waves in the SSD world. All their SSDs carry a 3 year warranty, and at a rated MTBF of 1.2 million hours, the Kingmax SMP35 120GB SATA III looks like the SSD of choice for many enthusiast PC builders.

From auditing to editing, I now test and analyze the latest gadgets and games instead of the latest financial statements. Both jobs are equally intense and rewarding. When I'm not burning up hardware in the name of science, you'll find me nuking in DOTA 2 or engineering in TF2.
