The Kingston HyperX 240GB Packaging is very attractive, finished in a predominately black coloured box, with an angled shot of the drive on the front.
The box rates the drive speed statistics as 525 MB/s read and 480 MB/s write.
Inside, the drive is protected between foam, with the disc and accessories separated in another section underneath.
The bundle really is impressive, with a screwdriver, cables, software CD and mounting plate supplied in the package. Kingston also include an external chassis if you wish to use it externally. We like the Acronis True Image HD software, as you can connect the drive via USB and mirror the internal boot up drive, then replace.
The drive itself is styled in traditional Kingston colours, with blue accents at the edges. It is one of the more attractive looking SSD drives we have received in recent months. Inside is the PCB which is controlled by the Sandforce SF-2281 controller chip. Unfortunately it appears Kingston have sealed this drive with an unusual locking mechanism and I didn’t want to break it by opening.
