The KingDian S280-240GB SSD was demonstrated to be a superb storage device, considering its budget pricing. The SSD comes in a plastic blister, sufficiently protected and accompanied by an informative pamphlet (without too much information) and 4 screws to facilitate installation.

The exterior has a rather correct finish, great quality materials are mentioned, all in brushed aluminum, there is very little difference between a Crucial or Samsung and this one. It has an extremely elegant black design that fits with just about any line.
The event of the SSD is aluminum which helps with heat dissipation, while its own matte coloring gives it a minimal appearance which should match with many people’s approaches. Obviously, the appearance of a product has nothing to do with the real performance, so let us get to the benchmarking part.
The Kingston SSD was the only one of the 3 units to include a little space to accommodate the 7mm height of the SSD to the 9.5millimeter z-height of typical older laptop hard drives, which is important because a few laptop computer designs incorporate the thickness of their drive to keep in position firmly.
It seems as if this SSD reads in a quicker speed than most three of those SSD’s even advertise at, but writes in a significantly slower speed than they advertise at. Though I totally love the KingDian S280 SSD, I definitely feel like you can’t find better options in this price range.
The price of this SSD is a couple of dollars cheaper but the performance ratio in comparison to other, more popular SSD’s is noticeable. In the long run, if you don’t care about numbers, you will be absolutely satisfied with your purchase of this KingDian S280 240GB SSD. You can grab it on a flash sale in the GearBest in just 76.99$.
