Kingston have emblazoned their Hyper X branding upon a new line of SATAIII SSDs. Do they live up to the name?

Performance wise it's very similar to other 240GB 2nd gen SandForce drives: Stockingly quick!!

It's worth £400 and then some.. Those low down ATTO speeds are incredible.

That's usually where drives falter, but that one just chewed up all file sizes and spat them out like there's no tomorrow

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

The 256's we reviewed not so long ago retailed at £600 ..... so £400 for those speeds is pretty epic!

Bryan, you gonna be doing a few more reviews of the latest SSD ranges? It would be good for comparison.
