I was very surprised at the level of performance the new JMicron JMF667H offers. JMicron has come a long way since the early controllers, and even since the last time we tested a drive with the company's early SATA III offering.
I'm not saying the performance is enough to make my head spin, but it's good enough for a majority of people. If I needed to buy a drive for someone else who was not all that technical and mainly surfed the web or played games, this would be a good option for doing it on a budget.
However, there is one issue, and that's actually buying this drive. I managed to find the C-Drive F8 in Asian markets and even European markets, but it looks like all of the drives ship from Asia. If the drive wasn't priced so low, I don't think it would be worthwhile to even consider it, but at $126.50 at the time of writing for a 256GB class SSD, it's hard to turn your back on that kind of value. The decision would be much easier if Kingfast had the drive listed on its own website like the 7mm model (that model costs a little more).
All things considered, the drive is fast enough, and the price is low enough to consider this model, but there are some issues we'd like to see Kingfast sort out before really recommending the drive. Certainly, a U.S. distributor or e-tailer would help, or at the very least an Amazon account. Support may also be an issue from the U.S. and Europe; especially if you need a warranty replacement. In Asia and other places with a low shipping time from Kingfast's factory, we could recommend the F8 drives.
