Solid State Drives are becoming more and more common. I think I big reason for this is because people realize that they will give them the performance boost that they want when added to their system. The market seems to be flooded with drives and it is really hard to choose which one to get. One of the main determining factors to many people is the price. Kingston’s new HyperX 3K solid state drive is designed to be very inexpensive as it uses cost effective NAND rated for 3000 program / erase cycles. We will explain what all that means later on in the review. This drive still sports the very popular SandForce SF-2281 controller and of course the quality you expect from Kingston.

We have always known Kingston for trying to make products that are affordable. They recently released a new solid state drive in their HyperX line. They are calling this new drive the HyperX 3K, where the 3K stands for the number of program / erase cycles the NAND inside is rated for. The original HyperX drive is rated for 5K program / erase cycles, so this drives is going to be less expensive, about $100 cheaper for the 240GB version.

“The Kingston Hyper T1 4GB 2800MHz memory kit that we looked at here today did a superb job on our motherboard that features the Intel Z77 Express chipset and the Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge processor. We ran this kit from 800MHZ with CL6 timings all they way up to 2800MHz with CL12 timings. It is pretty wild to see a 2000MHz spread with a memory kit, but this kit was up for the task…”

For those in the Android world who want to add extra storage to their device it is as easy as adding a memory card, but for all of us who use iOS devices we are stuck with the capacity of the device we purchase.

When you think of companies making products for iOS devices Kingston really is not one. We mainly know them for memory and solid state drives.

Our friends over at Kingston have just sent us a 4GB kit of their Limited Edition HyperX DDR3-1600 low latency memory (KHX1600C7D3X1K2/4GX). These modules are primarily being sold overseas (Russia/Eastern Europe). They run at 1600MHz and have a CAS latency of 7 with timings of 7-8-7-20 at 1.65V. Being that this kit only runs at 1600MHz and has low timings this should leave a lot of headroom for overclocking. Read on and see how far we can push these modules.
