ModCrash reviews the Kingston HyperX 3K 240 GB SSD

Kingston HyperX 3K 240 GB SSD

First off I want to thank Kingston for supplying the HyperX 3K 240 GB SSD for our review. Kingston is a major name when it comes to anything to do with memory and while the HyperX 3K SSD may not cost as much as other SSDs, it did in fact produce the performance normally seen with higher priced SSDs. Having said that unless your heart is set on a Corsair or Samsung SSD, the Kingston HyperX 3K SSD is perfect for the price conscience gamer!

While currently I have a Samsung 840 Pro in my gaming system I have personally bought three different SSDs from Kingston and they were as well as this SSD worth every penny.
