If you know anything about Kingston you know their HyperX line. HyperX is the name they give all of their high-end products. Kingston entered the solid state drive market with the SSDNow series of drives, but it was about time the put the HyperX name on a solid state drive. The HyperX solid state drive is a SATA 6GB/s drive powered by the SandForce SF-2281 controller, 25nm Intel NAND and boasts speeds of 555MB/s read and 510MB/s write. Kingston sent us the upgrade kit that includes a USB enclosure, 3.5-inch mounting bracket, SATA data cable, screwdriver and hard drive cloning software. Let’s take a look…
The HyperX upgrade kit comes in a nice retail box. On the front there is a little bit of information on the drive. It does say 525MB/s read and 480MB/s write, but that was an error on the packaging.
To give you a good idea of how the HyperX solid state drive comes and to give you a brief overview of the drive check out the video below.
