Kingston HyperX 3K 480GB SSD




Kingston put together an attractive package for the HyperX 3K.






The HyperX 3K drive is packed well in the retail package.




Under the foam, we found a desktop adapter bracket, screws for mounting, and a paper manual.




Here we get our first look at the HyperX 3K drive. The 3K is nearly identical to the original HyperX SSD, but the blue (that looked amazing) was replaced with black as the accent color.




The capacity, shipped firmware, model, and serial number, are all printed on the back.




This series shipped before the 7mm z-height standard came out, or at least before any company started making drives to fit in 7mm drive bays. The HyperX 3K is a 9.5mm drive height.
