Kingston Hyper X 240GB SSD Review


Finally ATTO tests the drives with different sized data chunks. Every drive slows down the smaller the file size just because of the nature of writing tiny clusters. As the size increases, so the drive gets into its stride. The Kingston Hyper X shows phenomenal consistency across the board.

Even on the creaky old SATA II the Hyper X is blazingly fast. Not that you'll ever use a drive of this calibre on something as limited as SATA II, but it's a good demonstrator of how the Hyper X just uses every last inch of bandwidth.

Ouch that's quick! £400 for a 240GB is plausable at these speeds. Especially when you realise what storage you actually need at hyper speed, with a large mechanical in the background for the lumpy stuff. SSD's seem to have come of age Quote
