The KINGMAX SME Xvalue super value SSD has become the first choice for entry-level users after it was released. In response to the continued increase of market demands for SSD, KINGMAX has again released a new product – the Full Capacity SMG Titan.
KINGMAX is a manufacturer of memory-related products; products are sold globally and it has over 200 dealers around the world. The opening of new capacities for NAND Flash on the market, drove prices of the SSD down to the sweet spot, which helped increase the permeability of SSDs into the market. KINGMAX SSD products series are also expected to benefit from this.
There are many brands available on the market. The problem of capacity vacuity is frequently seen, which causes consumers to be suspicious. KINGMAX has always paid extra attention to the problem of specifications. The SATAIII Full Capacity SSD released this time comes in four capacities for consumers to choose from: 64GB, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB. The SMG Titan also used a SandForce control chip with high speed NAND Flash kernels and the standard SATAIII 6GB/s interface; it uses flash memory to store data and has a maximum reading speed of 550MB/s while the writing speed can also reach 520MB/s. The SMG Titan also supports RAISE fault-tolerant technology and can perform redundant storage to the data; it also supports Error Correction Code (ECC) and Cyclic Redundancy Check (CRC). The use of wear measurement and NAND Flash chip monitoring functions can prolong the lifespan of the NAND Flash chip, so not only is the durability of the product increased, the security of the data is also enhanced. What’s more surprising is that the SSD SMG Titan can be stored under environments with temperatures between -55°C~95°C, already enterprise-level specification. To buy such high-specification products at the price of consumer products is definitely worth every penny!
As multimedia resolutions get finer and finer, the size of files are also getting bigger and bigger; what follows is the need for file transmission speed to reduce the time needed for file exchange. KINGMAX has released a new flash drive that uses the USB 3.0 high-speed interface and comes in the capacity selections of 8GB/16GB/32GB. It is extremely suitable for workers to carry and store documents and data to use, and the capacity is also sufficient to exchange multimedia files with colleagues. They come in two colors, fantasia red and piano black; the appearance is elegant and generous and looks like an accessory that Audrey Hepburn would use in the movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” if she was transported to modern times; simple and high quality.
A cup of coffee with a light charcoal fragrance is placed on the office desk, the slightly shiny top cover of the PD-10 is gently removed, the PD-10 is inserted in the USB slot, the person is focusing on the monitor screen and clicking the file to access… every image is as beautiful as a postcard and the PD-10 is an essential part of it. The neat and simple top cover design can prevent the problem of losing the cap; and the 605x185x9mm body dimension is ergonomic. It will be difficult to hold if it is too small, and will take up too much space if it is too big; the perfect-size design simply makes people love it. The USB 3.0 flash drive PD-10 is downwards compatible with USB 2.0 specifications, and its plug & play functions etc are most needed by users. It also has high compatibility and can be widely applied on systems including Win8, Win7, Vista, XP, 2000, Max OSV10.6.1 and Linux Kernel V2.6.x etc.
