Over the past few years USB speeds have really increased! We were stuck on USB 2.0 for quite a long time maxing out at 480 mbps. Not that long ago we were introduced to USB 3.0 which was a significant upgrade up to 5 gbps, which is 10 times the speed of USB 2.0. Just this year we have another upgrade to USB 3.1 which doubles the speed up to 10 gbps. With USB 3.1 with have a whole slew of new devices and of course some of those include flash drives. These make transferring and carry data with you extremely easy. Today we are taking a look at Kingston’s HyperX Savage 128GB USB 3.1 flash drive. This drive features read and write speeds of 350MB/s and 250MB/s respectively, a pretty cool design and a 5-year warranty.

Zotac is a company we mainly know for their high performance graphics cards and line of ZBOX Mini PC’s. Recently they announced they were getting into the solid state drive market with their Premium Edition solid state drive line.

The solid state drive market can be very profitable, plus it gives them an option for storage with their ZBOX line of mini PCs. Zotac’s Premium solid state drives are powered by the quad-core Phison S10 controller and matched with MLC NAND. Zotac will be initially offering this drive in 120 GB, 240 GB, and 480 GB versions. Today we have the 240 GB version (ZTSSD-A5P-240G-PE) on the review block. Let’s see if Zotac has a winner in their Premium Edition solid state drives!
