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 sustained random 4KB read/write performance of 20,000/50,000 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.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD

Pros: Great drive, and comes with some really cool things!

Cons: None that I can think of, have not had any problems with anything.

Other Thoughts: This kit comes with some cool extras, includes a solid metal mounting bracket for mounting this SSD in a case that doesnt have any SSD mounts. Includes a screwdriver with three tips just keep in mind the tips are magnetized.

Probably the coolest thing is a device that you can mount a SSD or Laptop HDD into it to convert it to a Portable USB HDD. I was able to take a Harddrive out of a Dead Laptop that I had and use it for a free 230GB Portable Harddrive with read/write speeds of ~50MB/s

5 out of 5 eggsMade my laptop new again

Pros: Speed, speed, speed. Super easy install. Upgrade Kit was worth it. Old drive becomes a spare external drive. Great price.

Cons: Honestly, none that I can think of other than I know this is more drive than my computer needed.

Other Thoughts: I have an old Gateway M1625 laptop that had a 5400rpm HDD in it. The thing was so slow. Booting up became painful. Shutting down was equally bad. Now, things are snappy, boot up feels almost instant. WiFi is acquired way faster. Programs load quickly again. My laptop is on SATA 1.5GB/sec, so I know it's actually the bottleneck. So, it's more drive than I need. But I got a great price on this kit, and it was so simple with the drive enclosure and Acronis cloning software. There's even a tool included for taking out screws. Awesome touch, Kingston. The laptop also only has 2GB of RAM, but that doesn't seem to hamper things. I was seriously ready to throw this laptop out, but now I can use it for school again with confidence and without frustration.

5 out of 5 eggsBlazing Fast

Pros: I love this new SSD ive never owned one, I went from a 250 gig 7500 rpm to a 90 gig, its to be larger but thats my falt lol

Cons: I cant seem to find a trim program that works, its collecting data like whale shark eats plankton. The 3.5 bracket didnt fit so to save time just order a 2.5 to 3.5 adapter for $4.99 not $13.99 i had to locally

Other Thoughts: Sometimes you download something you didnt mean to and now you SSD has it on it and is awaiting garbage collection so till then I seem to be stuck with the extra baggage Unless I missed something then SSD's are sick and I want one for the ps3
