Kingston HyperX 240GB SSD Review

Rating: 9.0.

There has been a bustle of activity in recent months within the Solid State Drive market. OCZ led the way with the latest revision of Sandforce powered drives, followed by other manufacturers such as ADATA and Corsair.

Today we are looking at the new 240GB HyperX SSD drive from Kingston which is based around the leading mainstream Sandforce SF-2281 Controller.

We received the bundle version which includes:

  • Acronis True Image HD Migration Software
  • HyperX 2.5″ to 3.5″ Desktop Mounting Plate
  • HyperX USB External Drive Bay
  • HyperX Multi Head Screwdriver
  • HyperX SATA Data Cable

    Impressive bundle, price isn’t bad for the size. Will they be releasing a 128GB? Obviously I would expect so.

  • Forrest

    Excellent, although they are all so good, its really down to the best deal. This one seems actually very competitive.

    OCUK dont seem to have the bundle with theirs though? unless its listed badly.

  • Iain McMuffin

    First time ive ever seen a company give away a screwdriver, cool idea.

    How much cheaper is the non bundle deal version?

  • Flapjacks

    They put a lot of work into the bundle. I like that software, I bought it last year and its great for switching out drives.

    Thanks fisshy, thats much more realistic. for me anyway.

  • Mark

    I like their products, good to see them moving out of the value sector in with the big players like OCZ.

  • Kenneth

    this will drop to under £400 for christmas., probably £370.

    Its too muich for me, but power users will probably buy 2 for raid 0. I think kingston are trying hard to get rid of their stuffy appearance and its working.

    SOmeone else said it, but it is all about price in this sector. they are all very close as can be seen, so the best deal is the one id go for.

    IOMeter results would have been interesting, too, given that Kingston claims the highes IOPS values of any of these sandforce drives.
