HyperX 3K provides high-speed SATA Rev. 3.0 (6Gb/s) performance and blazing fast random and sequential read/write speeds. SandForce DuraClass technology provides the latest data integrity protection for ultimate endurance over the entire life of the drive. HyperX 3K SSD comes in a sleek, black and aluminum case design, accentuating the look of any power user's system. For added peace of mind, HyperX 3K SSD is backed by a three-year warranty and legendary Kingston reliability.

Good performance.
3.5" to 2.5" adapter very pratical for the old case.
The performance is less good that other SSD but very acceptable.
The SSD look solid and heavy.

Experience: 1 Weeks

Excellent price ( at time of purchase )
It's SSD - what more can be said
Comes with 5 and a quarter inch mounting plate & hardware
None - although I would've preferred the plate to match the SSD color ( but I'm only being picky )
Performs the way you'd expect - someone going from HDD to SSD - ensure you wire your hat with haywire because the speeds will blow your hat away! =)

In my case, I replaced my aging OCZ agility III with this one, and the extra 100mb bandwidth I gained is noticeable, saving about a second or two on windows 7 pro load time.

- Extremely fast
- 3.5" bracket
- Looks very nice
I use a lot of Kingston memory, never fail me. This is the 1st time I use Kingston SSD. It does not fail me too. Very very fast. It also comes with a 3.5" bracket. Good for use in desktop.

And I have to say, the drive looks very very nice. Brush metal finish with a blue color bracket. Trust me, it looks a lot better when you see the real one than the picture. Almost like an art.

Experience: 5 Days
Reliable, Ultra-Fast. Fit perfectly in to the DS Silent Cube case 2.5" bay. Not a single glitch or problem with Win8.1 install or operation.
Can't think of a single thing yet
This SSD was recommended to me over the lower end Kingston SSD's. It is extremely fast. I installed it as part of a machine with the Gigabyte B85M-D3H, and a Pentium G3258. Boots in under 8 seconds (haven't timed it). Installed Win8.1 in under 15 minutes. Love it! Time will tell.

fast boot time, included mounting hardware.
can't think of anything right now.
Good bang for buck!

I got a Watch Dog voucher for a free game included with my purchase of this SSD. SSD + Free Game = steal!!!

I upgraded from a 120GB SSD because it was running out of space. 240GB is well more than enough to store the OS, applications and games. If you are thinking of upgrading your primary hard drive, and you see this on sale, don't hesitate just buy it!

Fast, good built quality
not as good of a deal as m550, which is $30 dollars cheaper if you do not like/care about watch dogs voucher
Pretty good deal overall, bought at $155+tax, came with watch dogs. At normal price, you are essentially buying the ssd + watch dogs separately.

Experience: 10 Days

Stupid fast
Low energy consumption
Beautiful design
None really
This thing gave new life to my laptop.
It runs super fast and even helped extend my battery life a little since it uses way less energy than a standard HDD.
Plus the Free Watch Dogs voucher was a plus.
Thanks kingston!

Fast, Cheap
Came with a game, who can complain. This thing is the bomb. Really great speeds I have 2 in my desktop and use 2 in ESXi whiteboxes.
