Description

Kingston's HyperX SSD combines the SandForce controller technology with premium NAND flash, reducing load times while increasing performance and endurance. It provides high-speed SATA Rev 3.0 transfer speeds for larger bandwidth, which power users require for advanced gaming, multitasking and multimedia computing power. Kingston's HyperX SSD lets users load games and applications faster, increase frames per second (FPS) and quickly transfer and edit large media files. It's cool, silent and requires less power and no additional cooling requirements.

When configuring the HyperX SSD partition, the user can choose between having the maximum available capacity for data storage or giving up a little space to increase performance and endurance. This additional space is called over provisioning on an SSD. The amount of performance and endurance increase depends upon the type of data being stored on the HyperX SSD. The more data that is MPEG, JPG, ZIP or ARC file types, the greater the benefit for this increased over provisioning.

HyperX SSD uses an advanced wear leveling technology that distributes writes evenly across all the flash blocks in the SSD to maximize overall drive endurance. Additionally, wear leveling ensures that the individual flash memory blocks are consumed at a very balanced rate, not to exceed a 2-percent difference between the most often written blocks and least written. This enables the HyperX SSD to provide the longest possible life for the user while maintaining optimal performance.

Good but...

A great little package including a usb case and small toolkit. Is now installed and works a treat but getting there was less than straightforward. The supplied CD only had two pdf's on it despite proclaiming that it contained disc cloning software. After trying and failing to use Windows 8.1 to clone the disc, I bought a 3rd party d/l for about a tenner and cloned the disc at the first attempt. Then set it to boot in the BIOS and Robert's your father's brother. And bizzarely, an Outlook 2013 problem that I have been having for the last six months has now gone away all by itself. Marvellous.

Doesn't support Windows 8 as sold.

The packaged migration software doesn't work with Windows 8. The box only lists Windows 7 and there is no warning on the website. Kingston eventually sent me an updated CD after sending them proof of purchase, but by then I had already purchased migration software from Paragon. Is DABS selling out of date stock???

  • Dabs response

Thanks for bringing this to our attention Andy, we've taken action with Kingston who assures us that new drives will be shopping with new Acronis software that supports windows 8.
