  • 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.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: bought for a alienware alpha with the original 500 gig HDD that came with the alpha I found that I was waiting to play my games as much as my ps4 I installed the 480gig hyper X SSD an it turned my lil steam machine into something pretty snappy it truly seems to load things 5x faster than the original HDD

Cons: being average in my knowledge I have not found any cons I loved the design an feel of the SSD itself

Other Thoughts: the brand itself seems to be one of the better ones out there also u get a nice sticker with the purchase
