Well I think this is a good deal. NVMe, M.2, PCI-E.

Pics show Silicon Motion SM2263XT as the controller and Micron Flash. The same combination as HP EX900 which is reviewed very well. I appreciate it won't be exactly the same as the firmware will be different - but well its about half the price of other SSD's of this size.

AFAIK it was just released. The 512gb version has been around for a while and they are selling a lot of those.
i wouldn't risk it for a unknown brand

I don't think that was on purpose as it was their new memory supplier that got a contaminated batch of memory. Old micron/ocz nand.

Do you have any proof of this? Seems very strange to do that and offer 3 year warranty.

No worries, it is confusing. There is also "Kingdian" - I guess they all copied Kingston.
Slowish drive, particularly on the 4k random IOPs. You are basically getting what you are paying for.

Should be easy on laptop batteries, though.

Where are you seeing the iops for the 1tb version? As far as I can see it's the 512gb older version in the description.

Sane spec sheet. Values quoted are the same for both 240GB and 480GB which suggests Kingspec isn't tweaking much between capacities

Just because a company offers a 3 year warranty doesn't mean they will make it smooth and easy. Many people have complained that their SSD broke after a few months and KingSpec wouldn't reply to their emails. People on Alliexpress have said that they won't give you your money back if it breaks.

Example 1, amazon.com/pro…r=1

Example 2, amazon.com/gp/…0YC

Buy one and look at the voltages and the temperature, or watch some youtube videos on them. KingSpec SSD's run roasting hot, which is why they die so quickly. The parts are defective and require more voltage to work, which creates more heat, which kills them. How do you think they get their stock so cheap?



If you want a cheap, small OS SSD then Kingspec is your best bet. Cheap, disposable. If you want quick speeds, reliability, customer service, long life span...well, you're barking up the wrong tree.

I work with computers all day every day. If you don't agree with me, fair enough, but there's no need for petty insults and assumptions.

I guess don't buy Samsung either then since they hit 113c? What kind of reject parts are they using?

I'm not sure what a 4 year old video showing a 100GB transfer has to do with any of this. The Kingspec will roast at idle, not just when working hard.

I've got a Samsung 970 Pro, so yes I do =) It peaks at around 50-60c, comes with a 5 year warranty that Samsung will actually honour, actually manages to meet their advertised speeds, has good customer support and I managed to buy it from Amazon.

On the other hand you've got Kingspec who say it's 3 years yet won't reply to any customer emails.

I'm not sure why people will fight to the death for Chinese tat, but by all means, spend away. I'd advise not relying on it or putting anything important on it, but it's your choice so hey ho. Enjoy your SSD.

"The Kingspec will roast at idle, not just when working hard."

I see you are just pulling claims out of thin air, so I guess we are done here.

But I could also mention of how your link with "bad" amazon reviews is mainly "Windows won't detect it!" Well I am 99% sure most of them will have not formatted the drive, its unfortunately very common when selling storage.

But hey lets just agree to disagree.

Sorry to be a bugger, but, this is a chinese brand, sold/sent from china... they can provide 100 year warranty, and it wont mean a thing... Lets assume they wanna honour warranty, 1st, you will be required to send item back and ensure it is tracked, check how much that is gonna cost you back and forth (assume back to you is on them, u still pay some good money to send to china tracked)? 2nd, assume your package never arrives to where it should, or they may just say it is lost? how will you prove? they ll just claim it wasnt them signed... 3rd it will need to be insured for this purpose, and your drive will have cost you a lot more, and not to mention hassle and time dealing with chinese!
if these are a good deal cheaper than market prices, i guarantee you they made shortcuts! and it will not be pleasant for you...

just saying from my experience...
