Editor:- July 13, 2013 - When I looked at KingFast's web site again recently - I didn't know what to focus on - because their SSD product range spans consumer, industrial, medical and military markets.

But I've known Jasmine Hong, Sales Director at KingFast for many years. So I asked - what are the SSDs in KingFast's range which give the best idea of what you're selling right now? - That's how we got to the small number of featured products above.
