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 90GB version pushes the limits in both sequential and random data transfer rates with up to 555MB/s read and 510MB/s write, plus incredible 4KB random write performance of 85,000/74,000 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 Kingston HyperX 3K stand-alone drive features a standard 2.5-inch form factor for compatibility with notebooks and select desktops. A 2.5-inch to 3.5-inch mounting bracket and mounting is also included with the SSD for compatibility with standard hard drive mounting.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect!

Pros: Needed a speed boost for my old Core 2 Duo, and this did the trick!

Cloned using the Acronis disc I got from the buying the 240gb HyperX combo pack for my main system, and it really did bring new life back to that old machine.

Games load sooooo much faster and everything is nice and smooth now.

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggs11 EASY months and blam

Pros: It all worked fine in a grandmother PC for 10-11 months, not like it was pushed hard though.

Cons: It's a tiny brick now, a couple of complaints from the motherboard about not having a boot HD and blammo it winks out of existence.

Other Thoughts: Out of the several brands of SSDs I've used since they started this is the first dirt nap. It is also the first and last Kingston. Back to OCZ, and Corsair for me.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat when it works

Pros: Boosted my computers speed immensely.

Cons: None while it worked

Other Thoughts: This drive stopped working 5 months in. It didn't give any warning, it just stopped booting to Windows. I tried re-installing and it still gives me problems. I thought SSD were supposed to be MORE reliable.

4 out of 5 eggsSSD

Pros: Very fast, windows has a 10 second boot.

Cons: Bad installation instructions. SATA cable does not lock in and the cable might fall out if you are doing work on your computer. The attachment of the drive to the adapter is not clear.
