JMicron was one of the first budget SSD controllers to appear on the market. A year ago, if asked for a budget SSD, we would have suggested staying away from JMicron-based SSDs, simply because of their poor performance. Even with their low price, it was still not worth buying SSDs based on the JMicron 602 controller.

We may see better improvements down the road, but we are currently stuck with third party controllers for this speed grade."
