HyperX performance at an exceptional price.

Budget-minded gamers and enthusiasts will benefit from the lower price of Kingston’s new HyperX 3K SSD. This solid-state drive combines premium 3000 program-erase cycle Toggle NAND with the second-generation SandForce controller. Its lower price means more users can experience ultra-responsive gaming, multitasking and multimedia computing power. 3K loads games and applications faster, increases frames per second (FPS) for an improved gaming experience and allows for quick transfers and edits of large media files. HyperX 3K provides high-speed SATA Rev. 3.0 (6Gb/s) performance and blazing fast random and sequential read/write speeds. SandForce DuraClass technology provides the latest data integrity protection for ultimate endurance over the entire life of the drive. HyperX 3K SSD comes in a sleek, black and aluminum case design, accentuating the look of any power user’s system.

  • 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 480GB version pushes the limits in both sequential and random data transfer rates with up to 540MB/s read and 450MB/s write, plus incredible sustained 4KB read/write performance of 60,000/45,000 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. The Kingston HyperX 3K upgrade bundle kit also includes 2.5” USB enclosure, SATA data cable, multi-bit screwdriver, hard drive cloning software, installation guide, mounting screws and a 2.5-inch to 3.5-inch mounting bracket for compatibility with standard hard drive mounting.

2 out of 5 eggsNot Worth

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3B/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Upgrade Bundle Kit)

Pros: Works well when it works.

Cons: Dies inexplicably. I am on my third HyperX 3K in two years, having returned the other two for a new one as they died. Now this third one is dead and I just want it to be over. Meanwhile friends who bought SSDs at the same time I got my 3K are still happily using their original purchases (Samsung).

Other Thoughts: I have always had great luck with Kingston products. I have been using their RAM since I started building computers. The headaches resulting from SSDs dropping like flies, however, has steered me towards other companies.

Manufacturer Response:

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3B/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Upgrade Bundle Kit)

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3B/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Upgrade Bundle Kit)

Pros: Fast and reliable! Just what you want in an SSD.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I've used quite a few Kingston SSD's, both the SSDNow and HyperX line. No failures so far. I don't go so far as to benchmark the drive but I don't think I've ever gotten below a 7.6 on the Windows 7 performance index.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3B/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Upgrade Bundle Kit)

Pros: Silent, fast, backwards-compatible to SATA-I, included external drive bay & software.

Cons: Runs warmer than I expected.

Other Thoughts: I replaced the drive in my 5 year-old Lenovo U330 laptop in an attempt to give it a new lease on life. It is now so fast that I was able to encrypt the entire drive with TrueCrypt and still get better performance than the original drive.
The included external case and software made imaging the drive a snap.

2 out of 5 eggsDied

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3B/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Upgrade Bundle Kit)

Pros: Fast. Best price/capacity/performance ratio when i bought it on september 2012.

Cons: Slowly diying. I get random system freeze, it shows SSD utilization at 100% but nothing happen. It can last from 30 sec to 5 minutes. I used to think it was Rome II's fault but since i installed it on my WD HDD the game is running fine.
Sometimes system does not boot.
I know it will die, it just not fully dead yet.

Other Thoughts: As many other reviews, 200$+ for a little more than a year's worth is expensive.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. We apologize for the issue experienced with the HyperX 3K SSD. We stand by our products and can work with you on a warranty replacement under the drive's three year warranty. Please call us at 1-800-435-0640 (USA and Canada only) M - F 6am - 6pm PT and I or another available Technician will assist you. Please be sure to have the part in question on hand when you call.

1 out of 5 eggsDied after 10 months

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3B/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Upgrade Bundle Kit)

Pros: Fast, pretty cheap for the amount of storage.

Cons: Cheap for a reason. I previously wrote a 5 star review, which I now retract entirely.

The drive just up and died after 10 months. Pretty disappointed, used to think Kingston was a reputable company. Maybe their quality went downhill when I wasn't looking.

Other Thoughts: I'll stick with Intel SSDs from now on. They seem to be the most reliable based on personal experience. In the mean time I'll talk to newegg and see what can be done.

This review is from: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3B/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Upgrade Bundle Kit)

Pros: It worked for a little while. Fast and good while it did

Cons: First one lasted 30 days. RMA'd back to Kingston. The next one lasted ~6 months then died.

Other Thoughts: Buy another brand. 2 dead HDDs is not worth the headache.
