Kingston's HyperX came out of the gates swinging and delivered an impressive show, gnawing on the Vertex 3's ankles every step of the way. The new arrival had little trouble meeting, and occasionally exceeding the performance of OCZ's SF-2281-

Unfortunately, our today’s tests do not provide a clear answer to the question if building a RAID0 out of modern SSDs makes sense. This solution has its highs and lows and we can only do as much as lost them all and let you be the decision maker....

Kingston's HyperX SSD really deserves the prominent name, originating from their high-end system RAM. In our testing the SSD is the fastest we've ever seen, beating the competition by quite big margins in some benchmarks. It seems the...

This drive sells for around 230$ I think at the moment, but they go on sale quite often. I suggest taking a look at sites like slickdeals, etc… for good deals. I think the numbers speak for themselves; the drive performs excellent! It beats out...

Despite its excellent performance, the Kingston HyperX 240GB finds itself in an incredibly crowded market, not just for SSDs, but also for the SandForce controller. OCZ, Corsair, Patriot, ADATA and half a dozen other partners also offer near identical...

So after reading all the results i am sure many of you are wondering about which SSD is currently the best one in the market. Well if you can afford the extra premium then the RevoDrive3 240GB is without doubt faster than every other SSD in...

So not the most mind blowing of SATA III SSDs, but certainly some strong results throughout. The price is also a little high on this compared to some SATA II units which are now reaching £1 per gigabyte levels; with that in mind, I’d probably...

Whichever way you cut it, the Kingston HyperX SSD 240GB is one fast SSD. In our tests it had read speeds nudging 500MB/s, as quick as the Patriot Wildfire that uses the same SandForce SF2281 controller, yet had faster write speeds of 308MB/s. In IOPS...
