The Kingston HyperX Savage is a handy device to have around. Not only does it offer 128GB of portable storage but it is also capable of hitting high read and write speeds which means you shouldn’t have to wait around long waiting for files to transfer. Obviously, the USB 2.0 numbers are lower, which is to be expected.
USB 3.0 results were all consistently high and we were quite impressed with them. To top it all off, Kingston has really stepped up in terms of build quality here as well, with a solid metal ‘X’ enclosing the device and protecting it from potential damage. The use of rubberised plastic was also a nice touch.
You can pick up the Kingston HyperX Savage 128GB model that we tested here today on Amazon for £54.99 though stock does appear to be quite limited right now. The price may seem quite high for a USB stick but you do get a decent chunk of performance for your money.
You can also find this USB drive available directly through Kingston for £60. This drive is also available in 64GB and 256GB capacities as well.
