Kingston HyperX Fury 16GB USB 3.0 Review

The Kingston HyperX Fury USB stick is a handy little device. It delivers reliable performance and is built to withstand a few drops. Obviously USB 2.0 performance numbers are lower when compared to USB 3.0 – which is to be expected.

While a USB 3.0 port is recommended to get the most out of the product, you don't necessarily have to ignore this device if you only have a USB 2.0 port. Just bare in mind that you will only be getting 30 MB/s read and write speeds.

During our real world and synthetic tests, we observed the Kingston HyperX Fury USB drive delivering faster speeds than advertised on the packaging, which is good news for potential buyers.

You can pick up the 16GB model for just under £10 from Overclockers UK, a good price for a decent USB drive to carry around a few files. Although the 32GB version doesn't cost much more, coming in at £16.99, so that is worth keeping in mind. If you need even more space, a 64Gb model is available, although it comes in at just over £30.

KitGuru Says: If you're in the market for a cheap, reliable USB stick to carry around then the Kingston HyperX Fury does the trick.
