Kingston HyperX 3K 120GB review


Bargain-basement pricing, but top-end performance

Decent performance ; Price per gigabyte

3K memory instead of 5K ; Sandforce not the fastest anymore

Kingston SH103S3/240G


I have it for almost 3 years installed on a 2009 Macbook pro it is not used intensively, only when I am away from home, so far so good.

Fast compared to regular HDD

The price went down quite a lot but you have to pay more when you do not want to wait too long so not really a Con

Great Drive, but Difficulties Arose


I am going through the RMA process and I will update this review once it has been resolved.

This drive was my first SSD and the increase in speed was amazing. The product worked well for over a year and reduced my boot time by a great deal

I had some initial issues getting my motherboard to recognize the drive. After a year and a half the drive stopped being recognizable at all

2.5 year - not a single problem


I also got those 120GB (blue) from HyperX. Those been sitting in RAID-0 for 3 years without any drama. Really happy & confident to buy HyperX

This SSD is worth to say a good word about it. 2.5 years without any single problem. Well that's the quality right there

Excellent SSD so far


Great SSD that I bought mainly because of the Watch Dogs offer. I probably would have bought the 120GB model if it weren't for that, but I'm actually very happy I got the extra space. It made Windows migration a breeze. I don't think the 120 GB model...

It's fast. Windows 7 boots in 8 seconds tops. It's also feels like it's very good quality

I don't have time to go get a drink before Windows boots

Still working great!


I've been using this drive mainly for my OS and games that I play frequently. I purchased the drive a little over 2 years ago and it's still running great. No slow downs or apparent drive failures of any kind. This company has earned my trust and I'll...

I wish the drive was this cheap when I first purchased it. Not a serious con

Great SSD


I used this drive in a new build for my mother-in-law. The ASUS A55BM-E motherboard I paired it with lacks a SATA 3 - 6 GB/s pot but that's what you get when buying based on combo deals and promo codes. Crystal Disk Mark test results: Seq Read: 276.1...

Excellent build quality ; LSI Sandforce controllers have lost some of their sizzle to Samsung, Barefoot 3, Marvel and others but the Sandforce controller has one of the best algorithms to reduce write wear on the NAND ; Includes a 2/5" to 3.5" metal...

The drive bay adapter is BRIGHT blue! If you have a case with a side window and are concerned with looks, you might not care for the color ; No drive management software included what-so-ever. Samsung really has a significant lead on this aspect of the...
