Kingston HyperX 3K (240GB) SSD Review

 

With OCZ intent on moving as much volume to its in-house Indilinx controllers as possible , SandForce ( now LSI ) needed to expand to additional partners. OCZ has strong control over the channel so SandForce needed to turn to multiple partners to...

Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD Review

 

The SSD market is literally saturated with competitors, and with SSDs being one of the “must-have” items these days, it's easier to get overwhelmed with trying to decide which make/model of SSD to go with in your system. Many people initially approach...

The Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD touts high performance numbers and based on the benchmarks, it delvers on the goods. As this has been one of the fastest SSD drives we have tested here at Techwarelabs, I assumed that the cost would be reflective of...

Kingston HyperX 3K (240GB) Review and Ratings

 

The HyperX 3K is a smart-looking drive with an unmatched accessory bundle, but we've tested a few faster, less costly SSDs that also have a bit more usable capacity.

Excellent installation kit ; Snazzy-looking shell

Pricey, given its performance in our tests ; Less capacity out of the box compared to competing drives ; Small-file performance lagged a bit behind the pack

Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB Solid State Drive Review

 

Kingston's new HyperX 3K solid state drive is designed to be very inexpensive as it uses cost effective NAND rated for 3000 program / erase cycles.

– Great performance ; – Upgrade kit ; – 3 year warranty ; – Kingston made it more affordable

– None that I found

The solid state drive market is continually growing and as prices keep on dropping more and more people are getting their hands on these incredibly fast drives. Kingston is now making this even easier with their HyperX 3K drive. Using the less...

Kingston HyperX 3K Review

 

The Kingston HyperX is a nice choice for a solid-state drive. It offers competitive read/write times and all the benefits of NAND and MLC flash component technology. The SandForce controller performs well and you won't have to worry about compatibility...

This solid-state drive features leading sequential read and write speeds.

The life expectancy is lower than many competing drives, and it is a little heavy.

The Kingston HyperX is the gamer's choice for a solid-state drive, and performs well.

Kingston HyperX 3K 120GB review

 

A good-looking and reasonable-value drive, but there are cheaper and quicker rivals

The HyperX at least manages to outpace the Crucial drive when it comes to accessories. The M4 doesn’t include any extras in the box, so you may have to budget extra for a 2.5in to 3.5in bracket to fit the SSD in your case - the Kingston 3K has one in...

Kingston HyperX 3K 120GB Review

 

We find out where Kingston's value orientated SSD stands in an increasingly tough market.

The Kingston HyperX 3K 120GB didn’t impress when it came to our benchmarks then, returning well below-average results in most of our tests and being throughly out-performed by competing 128GB drives from Crucial and Samsung.

Bought this product a few years back as a replacement drive for my PS3 where it performed wonderfully. It started up faster and loaded digital games faster. All in all very satisfied with it. Now, i have since removed the SSD from my PS3 and...
