Below are the specs taken from the official product page, took me quite a while to locate one with decent information.

As you can see from the product image, it doesn’t look like like the one in the product page. The build quality of the SSD feels rather cheap, tap on the surface and it feels hollow and a little loose, very unlike the SSDs like those from Intel, Corsair, Mushkin and others.

The Verdict

The SK hynix 256GB SSD isn’t in the Malaysian market yet, the performance looks good so far despite the rather flimsy nature of the enclosure. Sure, the SSD will be within the casing and it’s the internal that’s most important of which I agree, I just wish that the build could be a little better.

I’m hoping that the price will be under RM 400, priced above that then I’m afraid entering the market could be an up-hill challenge.
