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.

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3B/480G 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Upgrade Bundle Kit)

Pros: Very fast. Best single component upgrade you can get. The kit is nice, can use internally or also comes with external case, has everything you could possible want, even the screwdriver to install it. Want some more of them!

Cons: Still a bit expensive. Waiting for another sale for awhile now...and waiting...and waiting...

Other Thoughts: I would buy again too, I'd like about four more...

1 out of 5 eggsBuyer Beware

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3B/480G 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Upgrade Bundle Kit)

Pros: None that I could find. It's pretty. This is only my first complaint about NewEgg after doing business with them for over 10 years. Both business and personal. They did nothing for me and I requested they forward my complaint to management but wouldn't even do that.

Cons: The plastic material (insulator) on the connectors is very brittle. I noticed that when I plugged in the power connector it was very loose. I tried to remove and reinstalled and noticed that the shell was starting to fall apart.

Other Thoughts: I sent it back to NewEgg and 2 weeks later they sent it back and said tough luck and that it was my fault. If you don't beleive me google it. It's a design flaw so I would stay away from this one. Now I get to try on

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3B/480G 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Upgrade Bundle Kit)

Pros: Drive is very fast, boot time from off to desktop is 42 seconds for windows 7 pro

Cons: Not really a con as this is so fast, but it has a Sata III interface, a Sata vi would be faster, but hey it can only get so fast.

Other Thoughts: I would definately buy this again, and plan to when I have the cash.
