Kingston's HyperX SSD combines the latest SandForce controller technology with premium NAND Flash, reducing load times while increasing performance and endurance. It provides high-speed SATA Rev 3.0 (6Gb/s) transfer speeds for larger bandwidth, which power users require for advanced gaming, multitasking and multimedia computing power. Kingston's HyperX SSD lets users load games and applications faster, increase frames per second (FPS) and quickly transfer and edit large media files. It's cool, silent and requires less power and no additional cooling requirements.

HyperX SSD uses an advanced wear leveling technology that distributes writes evenly across all the flash blocks in the SSD to maximize overall drive endurance. Additionally, wear leveling ensures that the individual Flash memory blocks are consumed at a very balanced rate, not to exceed a 2-percent difference between the most often written blocks and least written. This enables the HyperX SSD to provide the longest possible life for the user while maintaining optimal performance.

  • newegg Built for Speed Kingston's HyperX SSD uses the latest generation SandForce SF-2281 controller with native support for SATA 6Gb/s, combined with Intel 25nm compute-quality MLC NAND (5k P/E Cycles). The HyperX SSD delivers outstanding read/write performance and significantly faster system response, boot times, and application load times than SATA 2 solid-state drives, with out-of-box performance of sustained 60K Random Write IOPS, read speeds of up to 555MB/s and write speeds of up to 510MB/s.
  • newegg A Superior PC Experience In addition to maximum performance, a HyperX SSD upgrade promotes cooler, quieter, and more energy efficient conditions compared to traditional mechanical hard drives. With no moving parts, SSDs provide peace of mind with their superior durability and reliability. HyperX SSDs work in perfect harmony with next generation platforms and operating systems to deliver the ultimate storage solution.
  • newegg Trim Support The HyperX SSDs feature support for the Windows 7 TRIM command. This allows them to store only the data they need and perform memory optimization to ensure the fastest possible write speeds.
  • newegg HyperX Upgrade Kit The kit includes everything you need for a smooth upgrade, including Acronis True Image HD migration software, mounting brackets and cables.

2 out of 5 eggsNot reliable

Pros: Was reliable and stable up till this point.

Cons: Had this for just over a year now, has worked fine up till this point. Woke up today and it was completely dead. Had to boot my windows off my slave drive..Called Kingston and they will ship me a new one with overnight delivery once they receive my old one...How long this will take i have no idea

Other Thoughts: Just hope they dont take forever to get me my new hard drive

Manufacturer Response:

2 out of 5 eggsGreat drive while it worked.

Pros: Quiet, very fast,and great boot time. Newegg delivers great and fast service, I enjoy buying from them. Also their 12 month no cost financing doesn't hurt your wallet either.

Cons: Drive worked great for exactly 8 months, then it had a stroke, totally brain dead. I tried to resusitate, but had absolutly no responce. I had no S.M.A.R.T drive warning, so the data since my last backup is history. Now I have to try to get this thing replaced, I hope they speak english as a first language.

Other Thoughts: Yes, I checked for loose cables, I changed controllers, and then changed power cable. No responce, I then installed an older Seagate notebook drive, with all the same cabling, presto! Computer online. Just a not so trustworthy drive! I have never had a drive die on me this soon, they have all lasted 2 years or better. I will get back to let everybody know how Kinston treats it's customers.

5 out of 5 eggsSweet! Oh, Did I Say SWEET?

Pros: Fast and easy to install with the bundled material. WEI score now at 7.9 and a total boot time from pushing the on button to being ready to go of perhaps fifteen seconds. I remember my first PC clone...a Leading Edge, and a great machine for the time; I would insert the five and a quarter inch DOS floppy disk, go outside to smoke a cigarette, walk around the entire house to check on the various greenery, and then come back inside only to find that the OS still had not finished loading. Trust me, youngsters, this is way better. I held off for a long time waiting for the price to fall on SSDs; then Newegg, bless em, did the Godfather thing and made me an offer I couldn't refuse. Like I said, between the bundled software, and the hardware, including the drive, the converter and the USB device, the thing is almost painless to get installed.

Cons: The instructions could be a little easier to follow, but common sense will out. I have a mental habit of making things more complicated than they actually are, so I had some initial (and minor) problems of my own creation. This is really a snap guy. I promise.

Other Thoughts: If you read my review in the motherboards section detailing the problems I've had (and continue to have with ASUS Customer Satisfaction) over the P8P67 debacle, you will know that I expect good service and performance for money paid and raise a stink when I am not treated right. At this point, I do not feel that there will be a problem with this purchase. I sometimes wish Newegg would keep a running tally of the companies who build well and do well by their customers and those who don't. Such a roster would be subjective as blazes, but when you see the same things...good and bad...cropping up again and again, the patterns tell you something. My hat is off to Kingston, Corsair, Lian Li, Cooler Master, Ultra, Intel, AMD, Polk Audio, EVGA, and MSI (mostly)...all these guys and some others too have treated me right over the years. Those other guys...the A_ _ S guys and some others too...no longer get my trade. Thanks Newegg; you are as good as it gets at what you do

5 out of 5 eggsGreat but maybe not worth it

Pros: Tossed this as my main HD in my new gaming rig and it loaded win 7 no problems, boot time is roughly 14 seconds and I only keep around 30 gigs free on it. I am never going back to using a regular spinning disc HD. Everything loads extremely fast (but there is still load time in most games) and this drive is 6-8 times faster then my 7200 rpm Seagate.

Cons: Sata cable it comes with is very flimsy and depending on how tight the fit is it may bend/break but cables are cheap.

Other Thoughts: It all comes down to do you want to pay for speed or not, you can get a 7200 rpm drive of the same size for about a quarter of the cost of this if not less.

Cons: none

Pros: Have an intel 160gb ssd drive and it fits nice and snug. Setup was like under a minute.

Cons: 1 less star because the included screwdriver is magnetic.

Other Thoughts: Nice compact enclosure.

5 out of 5 eggsKingston? Awesome!

Pros: Everything...boots Windows 7 in 8 seconds. No problem going into or out of sleep mode. Never had a BSOD. Screaming fast for every game I have thrown at it. And its so quiet!

Cons: There are no cons to this piece of awesome.

Other Thoughts: After hearing of problems with the latest Sandforce SSDs I hesitated about buying one but this Kingston has no problems what so ever. It can't seem to do anything wrong. It even installed so easily you don't even need instructions lol.

5 out of 5 eggsWicked!

Pros: This thing is super fast. Boots Windows 7 in 15 seconds. Games run much faster. I have had no problems with BSODs, sleep mode ( going in or coming out ). It installed with the kit easily, exactly as described in the instructions.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I am very impressed with Kingston. I recommend this model with no reservation.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fast- Boots Windows 7 before the splash screen animation completes.

Cons: Would like to buy a second one for RAID 1, but just too expensive for now.

Other Thoughts: Installed as boot disk with Windows 7 in "RAID-ready" mode on ASRock Z68M-ITX/HD motherboard. Did not have to update the SSD firmware. No BSODs, and goes to sleep and wakes up just fine.

3 out of 5 eggsDon't expect a killer

Pros: Relatively fast
Price ok w/rebate

Cons: Not much of an improvement (especially in writes) over
Intel X2 160gb SSD

Other Thoughts: So this is supposed to be the fastest SSD available,
I disagree. It is great for large sequential compressible reads,
but who does that all day long. I noticed a HUGE difference
going from a WD Velociraptor to an Intel X2 160gb SSD.
Going from the Intel SSD to this drive, there is NO noticeable
difference. It benchmarks faster on the reads, but not usually
on the small ones or the writes. Sandforce drives aren't all
they are cracked up to be. I would wait for the next generation,
or even a Marvell controlled, which means more consistant performance,
not the highs and lows of the smoke and mirrors sandforce compression.
