Solid State Drives
Kingston Hyper X
The performance of Solid State Drives has gone stratospheric in the last 12 months. Whereas once we considered 200MB/s to be blazing, we now see 400MB/s and upwards. When Kingston decided they were confident enough in the performance of their latest drive to brand it with their high-end Hyper-X label we expected big things and big things were delivered. The packaging was gorgeous and the drive itself not only looked the part, but was fast as you like. Read the review here.
The first SATA3 drive from Crucial was the C300 which concentrated solely on big read speeds. The successor to that was the M4 which not only brought the write speeds up to par, but came in at a very affordable price too. The 128GB model we reviewed was right on the sweet spot of performance and capacity and is definitely worth checking out. Read our review here.
