    1. Introduction

    Hi everyone, this time I am reviewing a Solid State Drive(SSD) from Kingston, the Kingston HyperX Fury 240GB SATA III SSD
    [​IMG]
    Screw mounting holes are given. Please note that you might need a 2.5" to 3.5" converter as it is not included in the package.
    The SSD can be taken apart by unscrewing 4 screws to see the PCB and chips but the top label acts as a tamper proof seal and tampering it will make the warranty void. So I could not get an inside scoop.
    SATA connectors are gold plated as usual and are of good quality.

    So that is all for this part. Let us see how this SSD performs in real time.

    3. Test system:

    CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 980BE at 4.1 GHz, NB at 2.8 GHz
    Motherboard: ASUS M5A97 R2.0, BIOS ver. 2501
    RAMs: Kingston HyperX Blu DDR3 1600 MHz 2*4 GB
    CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Seidon 120V with push pull configuration
    Graphics card: Sapphire Radeon R9 270X 2 GB DDR5 VaporX OC with boost
    Hard disk/Solid State disk(s): Kingston HyperX 3K 240 GB SSD(OS drive) + Kingston HyperX Fury 240 GB SSD(review sample, courtesy: Kingston Technology India)
    Power Supply: Corsair GS 700 2013 edition
    Monitor: Dell S2240M
    Chassis: Open test bench table
    Software: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Service Pack 1 and all updates till then.

    4. Real time performance - Benchmarks

    Test method: The performance of the drive was tested with various industry known benchmark software and such that scores can be compared with other sites as well.

    Software used:

    CrystalDiskMark3.0.3, Anvil's storage utilities(1.1.0), AS SSD Benchmark 1.7.4739.38088, AIDA 64

    The read speeds are good for this drive. However the 4K read speed was not goof. The write speeds are also good but does not reach the advertised speed of 500 MB/s. IOPS is quite good.
    5. Summary and conclusion:

    Pros:
    1. Good build quality
    2. Good aesthetics
    3. Balanced performance to price ratio, excellent read speeds
    4. Three years warranty

    Cons:
    1. Write speeds are okay but does not reach close to what is advertised.

    Verdict:
    This SSD can be considered as a primary system drive. Being 240 GB in size, it is more than enough to have room for the OS, software and for the gamer, a few games too. Read speeds of 500 MB/s + will make the system nifty and the 3 year warranty will give peace of mind to any customer looking for a long term quality solution.​
