HyperX performance at an exceptional price.

Budget-minded gamers and enthusiasts will benefit from the lower price of Kingston’s new HyperX 3K SSD. This solid-state drive combines premium 3000 program-erase cycle Toggle NAND with the second-generation SandForce controller. Its lower price means more users can experience ultra-responsive gaming, multitasking and multimedia computing power. 3K loads games and applications faster, increases frames per second (FPS) for an improved gaming experience and allows for quick transfers and edits of large media files. HyperX 3K provides high-speed SATA Rev. 3.0 (6Gb/s) performance and blazing fast random and sequential read/write speeds. SandForce DuraClass technology provides the latest data integrity protection for ultimate endurance over the entire life of the drive. HyperX 3K SSD comes in a sleek, black and aluminum case design, accentuating the look of any power user’s system.

  • newegg Engineered for Cost-effective performance The Kingston HyperX 3K Solid State Drives are designed and built for cost-effective performance. By leveraging the latest SATA 6Gbps interface and the second generation of SandForce SSD controller (SF-2281) which features the award winning DuraClass Technology, the HyperX 3K 480GB version pushes the limits in both sequential and random data transfer rates with up to 540MB/s read and 450MB/s write, plus incredible sustained 4KB read/write performance of 60,000/45,000 IOPS. This significantly improves your productivity, gaming, multimedia, and overall computing experience. It is backwards compatible with SATA II / 3Gbps. (Rated speeds may vary slightly depending on the benchmark used, drivers, windows version, bios version and file size.)
  • newegg SSD Benefits Unlike traditional hard disk drives, SSDs have no moving parts, resulting in a quiet, cool, highly reliable storage solution that also offers faster application loading and system responsiveness. And for laptops and netbooks, the lower power needs of SSD’s translate to extended battery life. Higher performance with more durability means you can be truly mobile with confidence.
  • newegg TRIM Support The Kingston HyperX 3K offers native TRIM support featured in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. Designed to maintain the performance of SSD at an optimal level over the lifetime of the drive, TRIM functions by actively deleting invalid data from the SSD’s memory cells to ensure that write operations perform at full speed. Since a memory block must be erased before it can be re-programmed, TRIM improves performance by pro-actively erasing pages containing invalid data, allowing the SSD to write new data without first having to perform a time-consuming erase command.
  • newegg S.M.A.R.T. Technology The Kingston HyperX 3K adopts Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T.) Technology which enables the PC to predict the future failure. Through the SMART system, the solid state drive incorporates a suite of advanced diagnostics that monitor the internal operations of a drive and provide an early warning for many types of potential problems. When a potential problem is detected, the solid state drive can be replaced before any data is lost or damaged.
  • newegg 3.5” bracket included The HyperX 3K solid state drive features a standard 2.5-inch form factor for compatibility with notebooks and select desktops. The Kingston HyperX 3K upgrade bundle kit also includes 2.5” USB enclosure, SATA data cable, multi-bit screwdriver, hard drive cloning software, installation guide, mounting screws and a 2.5-inch to 3.5-inch mounting bracket for compatibility with standard hard drive mounting.

5 out of 5 eggsOver a year

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3B/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Upgrade Bundle Kit)

Pros: This SSD is very good! Fast and had absolutely no problems with it. I just replaced an OCZ from a friends laptop which died in less than a year, so Kinston Hyperx is reliable

Cons: Maybe it doesnt do write speeds as advertised. a little less, but still fast

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3B/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Upgrade Bundle Kit)

Pros: Fast, fast fast. Totally worth the 10-15 bucks extra for the kit vs. bare drive. It even comes with a handy screwdriver and a 2.5 -> 3.5 inch bracket.

Cons: I'll let you know when I find one...

Other Thoughts: Have few of those including 2 servers running RAID 1 on sys drives 24x7. I also own few Samsung SSD's, OCZ's and Intel's but this one is by far my #1 choice in terms of price and performance. Can't wait for some promo's to grab few more of these are they are the real thing.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid SSD

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3B/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Upgrade Bundle Kit)

Pros: Good Price, Very sleek and sexy, fast boot

Cons: It cost money -

Other Thoughts: Bought this as my first SSD for christmas of 2012, so I've had it for 5 months (its 5.28.13 as I write this)and it still works perfectly as it did on day 1.

it was easy to install and it took a while for me to figure out how to make it work well, but once you figure it out you'll be on your way

about a 10 seconds and im in windows, fully loaded. Love it

buy it now

5 out of 5 eggsheck yes!

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3B/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Upgrade Bundle Kit)

Pros: i got it yesterday so i havnt had it long but in this short amount of time i am very thoroughly impressed with this drive. it looks awesome and is very fast. it made installing and updating win 7 soooooo much faster due to how fast my computer can restart now. under 20 second startup to desktop and a win 7 rating of 7.9!

Cons: spendy but thats just because its an ssd! great performance for the money spent!

Other Thoughts: love it. if you want a smaller ssd for your os install i recommend this one! ill see if it lasts!

5 out of 5 eggsFinally got the laptop I wanted!

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3B/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Upgrade Bundle Kit)

Pros: It's Kingston. Price was right on sale. FaST! 20 seconds to full boot with all the stuff a laptop needs loading. Would be faster on a clean desktop using the included (nice too!) bracket.

Cons: Included software is not very intuitive. Bigger is better, but this will do nicely for a work laptop on the job that I need available quickly.

Other Thoughts: Asus u46e laptop. Replaced the HD with the Kingston and installed the 750Gb drive in the DVD bay. Easy with a cheap adapter. One screw and I can swap back to DVD. I wasn't sure all this would be possible, but I don't need the external case after all. The case is very easy to swap laptop drives in, so I have the option of using it if I want. This is a good setup!

5 out of 5 eggsWorth it

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3B/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Upgrade Bundle Kit)

Pros: SSD fast.
Kit comes with everything you need. Software for cloning and case for making your old HD an external.

Cons: The external case is kinda flimsy. The documentation is lacking.

Other Thoughts: Get the bundle it is worth it.
SSD HD is the best way to run and operating system on your PC. Windows boots very fast.

5 out of 5 eggsBY far the best SDD for the money

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3B/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Upgrade Bundle Kit)

Pros: So far so good. These drives have a good track record on reliability but I will know for sure a bit later with mine. In terms of performance the read and write speeds on this drive have beaten every other brand I have bench tested. You may be able to get a higher capacity drive like the Samsung for a similar price but this drive is far superior.

Cons: I just wish the price was cheaper.

Other Thoughts: Even though I got this drive for the performance if you can afford the 256GB version I highly recommend it. This drive fills up quick with 21st century games.

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3B/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Upgrade Bundle Kit)

Pros: Fast - it turned my old cq50 into a new machine.
Installation: I plugged it in; that was it.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If I could do just one upgrade on a computer, this would be it.
