Kingfast C-Drive F8 Series 240GB SSD Review - Cheapest tested 240GB drive so far

Kingfast C-Drive F8 Series 240GB SSD




Package wise, there really isn't much to see. Kingfast designed everything to stock on a hanger at a convenience store. 7-11's are on every corner in Asia, and when I see SSDs in blister packs, that's what I think of. I'll take a pack of Camel Filters and the 240GB Kingfast please.




The back of the package is dedicated to warranty information, and where to reach out to for support.




Here, we get our first look at the drive. The KF2510MBJ09 is a 9mm z-height design, but Kingfast also makes a 7mm version.




I've been asked before: "Why do you talk about the mounting points in all of your reviews? Who would make a drive without the proper mounting spacing?"


Although it's been a few years since I was able to make a significant contribution to talking about mounting holes, but this is why. The Kingfast sample we received only has three of the four standard mounting points on the bottom of the drive.




Everything is all good on the side mounts though.




The SATA power and data connectors are also where they should be.




Inside, I found a half-length PCB with the components needed to make an SSD operate.




There are eight NAND flash packages total; four on each side. Kingfast used Toshiba 19nm flash in TSOP packages with four die per package.




Here, we get our first look at the new JMF667H controller and the 128MB Nanya DRAM.
