Kingston HyperX 120GB (SH100S3-120G) Review

Kingston HyperX 240GB SATA 6Gbit/s SSD Review

Kingston HyperX 240GB 6Gbps SSD Review


Kingston's HyperX brand is synonymous with high performance which is why they've placed that badge prominently on their newest SSD. So when we received their newest and first HyperX SSD, we were very curious to see how it stacked up against other...

As usual, Kingston has not disappointed with their HyperX brand. Their first such SSD to carry the HyperX name is pure excellence from the performance and design all the way down to the packaging and impressive bundle options.
