Looking at the printed specifications it's easy to dismiss the HyperX 3K as just another Team SandForce drive, but it isn't. 3K flash, three year warranty, standalone package with a bracket, these are typical of just an average SSD, but look at the actual drive. Kingston builds a solid drive that outshines nearly everything else on the market when it comes to the physical package.

On the back you'll find the model and serial number, capacity size and the bottom mounting points that are drilled and tapped into a solid aluminum base. The industry is starting to move to very thin, very soft aluminum to save on expenses, but the HyperX 3K is still a solid build all the way around.

The SATA power and data connectors are offset to where they should be and the included desktop adapter bracket also offsets the drive so the cables are closer to in line with 3.5" form factor HDDs.
