If you're looking for the best bang for your buck, Kingston's new HyperX 3K SSD just might be it. This new solid state drive combines premium 3,000 P/E cycle synchronous NAND with LSI's SandForce SF-2281 controller to deliver impressive performance at a price that budget-minded gamers and enthusiasts will appreciate. Like the original HyperX SSD, the HyperX 3K performed very well in our sequential read and write tests. The drive was able to read at speeds as high as 556 MB/s and write at speeds in excess of 488 MB/s. It also took the top spot in our random write tests, producing more than 81,000 IOPS. Impressive performance isn't the only thing the HyperX 3K has to offer either. Along with a good looking, well constructed design, the SSD is available as a standalone drive or as part of a kit that includes everything you need to upgrade your computer.
