Kingston HyperX MAX USB 3.0 128GB External SSD Review

Kingston's HyperX MAX 3.0 is an external SSD with a USB 3.0 interface that promises reads up to 195MB/s and writes up to 160MB/s. Akin to an over-sized and supercharged thumb drive, it could just be your salvation for a speedy and portable backup solution. Read the full article to see if it performs and wins our hearts.

Overall performance of the Kingston HyperX Max 3.0 was great. It exceeded Kingston's rated specifications in our synthetic benchmarks and although limited by the USB 3.0 interface from really stretching its legs, it's a welcomed change from the slug that is USB 2.0. In case you missed it the Kingston HyperX MAX 3.0 has a read speed of up to 195MB/sec., and a write speed of up to 160MB/sec. We were able to hit 206MB/s read and 189MB/s write in ATTO. Fit and finish are excellent and the rounded edge design makes it comfortable to hold and small enough to fit in your pocket although it's obviously a fair amount larger than a thumb drive.
