Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review

Kingston Factory Tour - Making of an SSD from Start to Finish - PCSTATS.com Kingston Factory Tour - Making of an SSD from Start to Finish
Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 9:45AM | Filed under: Hard Drives| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

We were picked up from the Hsin Chu high speed rail station by our friendly marketing contact at Kingston who drove us directly to Kingston`s ten SMT-line ready Taiwan factory, which is about 15 minutes from our entry point back to Taipei. We were told that this factory only (we laughed when Kingston said its Taiwan facility is a small operation) has 600 employees. With the introduction set, it brings us to the reason for this article and that is our factory tour. We were exclusively invited into the Kingston factory where few media have been and got shown the process of making an SSD from start to finish. Due to media restrictions, we were not allowed to produce a video of the tour, but we were allowed to take photos. Obviously Kingston is a market leader in memory and SSD products and there is plenty of sensitive machinery and such - and we needed to respect that and their rules."
