  • 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 240GB 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 40,000/57,000 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.

2 drives, each failing under 3 years without warning

Pros: Faster boot up time than standard drive.

Cons: Hard Drive fails and data is unrecoverable.

Other Thoughts: Bought this drive in 2012, 2.5 years later it failed. Went through the RMA process and they sent a refurbished drive (still lost all my files). Now 1.5 years later the refurbished drive failed. Kingston refuses to RMA the drive since its more than 3 years since I bought the original drive even though I've never had a Kingston drive that's lasted longer than 3 years. This is on a lightly used home computer mind you (since I got my iPad its almost never used)

Honestly, I'm ok not getting another drive, I'm tired of Kingston's garbage product, losing my files, and having to reinstall everything. Don't buy this product or any Kingston product for that matter, there are better brands/memory out there. Kingston doesn't stand behind its products.

Dead after 3 and a half years

Pros: Over the past 3 years, the only difference this has made was my boot up time compared to an HDD, and in some instances loading screens for a few games were shorter.

Cons: This is the first item out of all the items I purchased to build my computer 3.5 years ago. I'm seeing a lot of similar reviews, I do not recommend this item or this brand.

Other Thoughts: I think I will look towards m2 here shortly, this set me back a bit as I was going to upgrade my graphics card. Oh well.

Still going super strong!

Pros: my program still say 100% life. this is great. i been very happy with this. i don't think this will ever die. give you idea how this been working for me. my pc never sleep. never get shut down. it keep going. so over all. it is a great SSD i got and this is my 1st SSD. now i think of it. i never have a hard drive that live more than 1years. this maybe the 1st out of all them.

update: it at 97% health. still work great. my pc run all day. very happy with it

Cons: No Cons At ALL!

Other Thoughts: if you're looking for faster pc. better game system. longer life on hard drive. you're in right place. this SSD and other SSD will help you on that. make sure you get 100gb or more to support your system or game. i seen SSD now day that have 300gb or more for cheaper price. cost for SSD is wonderful if you think about it. Life of SSD + cost of memory. it turn out it end up costing you less than hard drive. harder drive do fail much faster than SSD. so in long run SSD end up being cheaper...

Solid Product

Pros: -Light
-Solid Construction

Cons: -Nothing so far

Other Thoughts: Bought this product a few years back as a replacement drive for my PS3 where it performed wonderfully. It started up faster and loaded digital games faster. All in all very satisfied with it.

Now, i have since removed the SSD from my PS3 and reinstalled the old HDD into it so that I can use this SSD in a PC build i have planned for the near future. I have no doubt that this drive will perform just as well as the day i bought it, but only time will tell. It has PLENTY of room for the OS and several large games/programs to be installed without fear of running out of room. Looking forward to using this in the build. Plus, it just looks awesome. Will definitely be mounting it so it's visible if i can.

Edit: Build is complete, and as expected the PC boots in seconds. Paired with 8GB of DDR4 RAM, this drive makes for a very fast pc. Only thing holding me back now it my CPU.

Failed with no warning

Pros: It was fast while it worked.

Cons: After about 3.5 years (so just out of the warranty period) this hard drive decided to completely stop working out of nowhere.

Other Thoughts: I would only recommend this drive to people who don't mind losing both data and money. Do yourself a favor and buy an SSD that's more reliable with a better warranty.
