  • 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 120GB 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 20,000/60,000 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.

Manufacturer Response:

Hey Matthew!
Glad to hear the drive worked great for you, however we're afraid the drive has a three year warranty from the original purchase date. Feel free to contact us for any feed back and concerns.
Regards,

5 out of 5 eggsStill running!

Pros: I have 2 of these in separate computers, running as boot drives since 1-18-13

3 out of 5 eggsGreat as long as it lasted

Pros: Great as long as it lasted. Great price at the time I bought it.

Cons: Only lasted a little over 3 years of VERY light use. This drive was installed in a PC at my home that is used only rarely because I use Apple products most of the time. I guess I'll stick to Samsung after this. I have installed multiple Samsung SSD's at the small city hall where I live, and not had a one of them fail, even though they're used every day, and left on 24/7.

Other Thoughts: Wouldn't recommend, and will replace with a Samsung

1 out of 5 eggsBought this drive to speed up my rig (Disappointed)

Pros: It hasn't died yet

Cons: This drive is way over rated. Average read/write is about 120MB/s using Hd Tach and HD Tune. This drive was cheap when other SSD's were not (about 2 or 3 years ago), and now I see why, it's about half the speed of the Samsung Hard drive I replaced with it.

Other Thoughts: I would never recommend a product that is blatantly over rated

3 out of 5 eggsRIP Kingston HyperX 120GB - A sudden and shocking loss.

Pros: Worked fine since I received it in 09/12. Had 100% Health 3 days ago.

Cons: Out of nowhere computer crashed. Reboot wouldnt get past SMART check. Connected to USB and passed WD Lifeguard but shows a capacity of 0Gb (zero). Cannot access and cannot recover.

Other Thoughts: No warning with a CDI showing 100% Health. So sad, so frustrating.

5 out of 5 eggsRunning strong since 2012

Pros: -Very Reliable

Cons: -None

Other Thoughts: I even put these in RAID-0 and just kept Steam games and temp downloads on the array. Never once had a failure or issue with them. They're still going actually, just not in the array anymore due to a computer switch.

2 out of 5 eggsSATA connector broken

Pros: Was good while it lasted, was fast

Cons: The SATA connector is too fragile, moderate force broke the SATA connector and now the drive is useless because the SATA connector will not stay connected.
