We had reviewed the previous HyperX 120GB, which featured Synchronous flash memory and even though it didn’t beat the mighty Intel 520 series SSD, the performance was close and for the price, it wasn’t too bad at all. The new drive will come with an upgrade kit as well, which features a driver disk, data cable and an enclosure for using it as a portable drive.
