Kingston Hyper X 240GB SSD Review
The Hyper X comes in some seriously high class packaging. So often SSDs are supplied in the bare minimum, even the full kit versions such as the one we have here today, but not so with the Hyper X.
No 'cornflake' style box here. This is a box you lift the lid from, the thick glossy cardboard giving an air of quality that is only reinforced when you see the SSD itself in its high-density foam cocoon.
Being the full upgrade kit version we find a disk with Acronis software, SATA cable, USB caddy and cable and a screwdriver, all supplied in the Hyper X blue. The 2.5" to 3.5" adaptor is also anodised in that electric blue, but showing the attention to detail that Kingston have lavished upon this we even get the stylised X cut out of the foam. Very classy.
So many drives are clearly slightly badged versions of generic ones, yet the Hyper X SSD will never be mistaken for anything else thanks to it's sharp design and the embossed Hyper X logo. If the drive is half as good as the thought that has been put into it we're in for a treat.
