HyperX SSD uses an advanced wear leveling technology that distributes writes evenly across all the flash blocks in the SSD to maximize overall drive endurance. Additionally, wear leveling ensures that the individual Flash memory blocks are consumed at a very balanced rate, not to exceed a 2-percent difference between the most often written blocks and least written. This enables the HyperX SSD to provide the longest possible life for the user while maintaining optimal performance.

  • newegg Built for Speed Kingston's HyperX SSD uses the latest generation SandForce SF-2281 controller with native support for SATA 6Gb/s, combined with Intel 25nm compute-quality MLC NAND (5k P/E Cycles). The HyperX SSD delivers outstanding read/write performance and significantly faster system response, boot times, and application load times than SATA 2 solid-state drives, with out-of-box performance of sustained 60K Random Write IOPS, read speeds of up to 555MB/s and write speeds of up to 510MB/s.
  • newegg A Superior PC Experience In addition to maximum performance, a HyperX SSD upgrade promotes cooler, quieter, and more energy efficient conditions compared to traditional mechanical hard drives.

HyperX SSDs work in perfect harmony with next generation platforms and operating systems to deliver the ultimate storage solution.
  • newegg Trim Support The HyperX SSDs feature support for the Windows 7 TRIM command. This allows them to store only the data they need and perform memory optimization to ensure the fastest possible write speeds.

Still going

Pros: I installed this drive in 2012. It is still going in 2018. Regarding specs, this drive doesn't hang with the latest tech but it still runs circles around disk drives.

Cons: Current price is not worth investing. You can get more for less. I'm assuming the price is a supply/demand thing.

Other Thoughts: I just wanted to comment on the quality of this product. Obviously, I've been using this drive for quite some time and so far (knock on wood), I haven't had any issues. Kudos to Kingston for making a great product.

Failed after 4 years

Pros: Drive performed well for just over 4 years

Cons: Drive failed suddenly at just over 4 years of home PC use. I tried multiple times and ways to access the drive after a reinstall, but was unsuccessful.

Other Thoughts: If you're still using one today, I recommend frequent backups.

Failed after 3.5 years of use

Pros: Worked great right up to the last time it booted.

Cons: If you want to get this SSD and don't expect a life expectancy greater than what I got out of it, then this SSD is for you. Warranty was for 3 years - go figure. Lost all data and this SSD is totally dead.

4 years Strong & Fast SSD -

Pros: Hands down adding a SSD for your OS drive is the best speed improvement for any PC with 8GB of RAM of more. You can see and feel the difference it is night & day major speed improvement.

SSD speeds, stable, 4 years later still going strong!

Came with cloning software & mounting tray, housing for old drive to use as USB drive, w/ nice aluminum screwdriver.
Large enough for Win 7 Pro 64 bit & office plus all of my software at a very reasonable price.

Cons: n/a

Other Thoughts: Read the directions or do your home work. The SSD goes inside of your PC - the old drive becomes an external drive if you do not have any more SATA ports or have a laptop. Set your BIOS to AHCI *** before you clone your drive for best performance. If you chane port to ACHI after you clone, Windows Will NOT Boot! You will either have to edit the registry or Reinstall the image. ****NEVER defrag or optimise a SSD it just causes undo wear to the memory chips.

Pricing Mistake...??

Pros: Average SSD. Keeps up with the rest.

Cons: PRICE!!! $349 for 120 GBs. That's got to be a misprint, right Newegg? I got mine for $99 6 months ago.

Other Thoughts: This is a "solid" solid state drive and does what it's supposed to do. But, if the price I am seeing here is correct, that would be ridiculous. That's over $2 per GB. I hope it is just a misprint as I got mine for $99. Most SSD's are around 70 - 80 cents per gig now a days and continue to drop. DON'T BUY IT AT THIS PRICE unless you are in the market for a booty intrusion.

2 Years and Counting

Pros: Excellent SSD. Excellent speed and reliability. I have had for over two years now and use the computer daily.

Using AS SSD Benchmark utility, I was able to get a score of 167(R) and 207(W). Individual scores were: 467MB/s Seq Read, 160MB/s Seq Write, 0.123ms Read Acc. time, and .357ms Write Acc time.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: You must use the Windows utility to partition and format this drive. I had to learn this the hard way. Do not use the software that comes with the drive if you are installing Windows 7 64-bit.

Buying another

Pros: Love the speed.
Internet is much more snappier.
Games run faster.
Very fast read and write speeds.
I am buying another one (read other thoughts)

Cons: Price? is that a con?

Other Thoughts: I am buying the standalone version of this one. I really love the speed of this SSD. I want to Raid-0 them together for bigger main drive space. One of these is just enough for windows, apps and only 1 MMO, like WoW or SWTOR. If I had 2 of these I could install another MMO and maybe a few more games for sure. I am just waiting for Newegg to restock these SSD's since they are getting sold out quick.
