Specifications, Pricing and Availability
Kingston's specification list is quite extensive, but we aren't going to focus on their professionalism today. The HyperX branded SSD is offered in two capacity sizes; 120GB and 240GB. We'll be looking at the latter in our review. At this time we don't have specific pricing information, but these products should hit the market in the coming weeks. I expect Kingston to come out with aggressive price points right from the start and keep making micro adjustments as time passes.
As much as I'd like to make this a full on review that weighs price, performance and accessory package, I'm limited on the pricing information. That leaves performance and the add-on accessory package and both are excellent. Kingston claims their HyperX branded SandForce SF-2281 / 25nm synchronous flash product is capable of delivering 555MB/s read speed and 510MB/s write speed. These are at the upper tier of the new SandForce SF-2000 products and that shows by the PC Mark Vantage numbers quoted. To date we've flirted with 75,000 Marks in the Vantage HDD tests, but never achieved anything close to 80,000, the stated performance from Kingston. If this number is possible with a single 2.5" SSD, it'll be the highest we've recorded to date.
When it comes to accessories and add-on package, users have two routes they can take, a bare drive solution and an upgrade kit that includes all the goodies you could ever ask for. We'll show you the upgrade kit in detail later in this review. The standard three year Kingston warranty applies to the HyperX SSD.
