  • 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 120GB version pushes the limits in both sequential and random data transfer rates with up to 555MB/s read and 510MB/s write, plus incredible sustained 4KB read/write performance of 20,000/60,000 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. Kingston HyperX 3K stand-alone drive also includes mounting screws and a 2.5-inch to 3.5-inch mounting bracket for compatibility with standard hard drive mounting.

3 out of 5 eggsWorked great, but really flimsy sata connector broke

Pros: Very fast (>500MB/sec), seems reliable without any flash failures. Good solid drive. Used it on my every day main machine so it got a fair amount of use.

Cons: The SATA connector broke when I was doing some work on the machine and tried to remove it. I looked very carefully at the plastic portion that goes into the cable and noticed it was quite thin. Compared it to my intel SSD and Seagate drives. Definitely thinner material. I pulled the broken piece out of the connector, yup its quite thin and delicate.

Other Thoughts: Other than the connector, this is a great drive. Kingston should really replace their connector source with a slightly more robust connector. Granted, most people do not touch the drive after installing it. So its probably my bad.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive, but Difficulties Arose

Pros: This drive was my first SSD and the increase in speed was amazing. The product worked well for over a year and reduced my boot time by a great deal.

Cons: I had some initial issues getting my motherboard to recognize the drive. After a year and a half the drive stopped being recognizable at all.

Other Thoughts: I am going through the RMA process and I will update this review once it has been resolved.

2 out of 5 eggsdied with a lot of smoke

Pros: reasonably fast

Cons: unreliable, often refusing to boot Win 7 ultimate 64 bit

Other Thoughts: This drive has lived for almost two years (bought 11/23/12 and died 11/21/14) and died being under warranty and nearly causing a fire inside my computer: the area around power connector essentially melted. I was lucky to be home when this happened. There was a lot of smoke. I was going to replace it with Samsung sdd for a few months but always postponed this, and now I have to re-install Windows and all applications. Fortunately, the data were stored on HDDs. Remarkably, one Hitachi HDD, which was next to the source of the fire, survived, all covered with soot! The lesson learned - will go next time with Intel or Samsung SSD.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. We apologize for the issue experienced with the HyperX 3K SSD. We are here to help and would like to further investigate this issue. As we stand by all our products, we can replace the drive under warranty as well. Please call us at 1-800-435-0640 (USA and Canada only) M - F 6am - 6pm PT and I or another available Technician will assist you.

Thank you for selecting Kingston as your upgrade partner.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent SSD so far

Pros: It's fast. Windows 7 boots in 8 seconds tops. It's also feels like it's very good quality.

Cons: I don't have time to go get a drink before Windows boots.

Other Thoughts: Great SSD that I bought mainly because of the Watch Dogs offer. I probably would have bought the 120GB model if it weren't for that, but I'm actually very happy I got the extra space. It made Windows migration a breeze. I don't think the 120 GB model would have made it so easy.
