Review: Kingston DT HyperX 3.0 64GB Reviewed by: Antonis Sapanidis Provided by: Kingston EU Manufactured: in Taiwan
It would be almost impossible to find someone that hasn’t used a product from Kingston, and even harder to find someone that hadn’t thought of buying something that has the Kingston name on it. So there is no need to make an introduction, but you can find everything you need to know about Kingston and their products simply by clicking here.
We all remember the HyperX series, especially their SSD’s that have amazing performance and also an excellent value for their price. Kingston continues to use the HyperX name on various high performance products, from RAM, SSD’s, USB3 Flash drives, to headsets. This time I am not looking at an SSD from Kingston, but a very fast USB3 flash drive, the HyperX 3.0, and this is one of the fastest drives that Kingston has to offer, the drive is also very attractive, it has a mixture of metal and rubber casing.
Kingston kindly provided me the DataTraveler HyperX 3.0 flash drive for a review, so let’s start this review by taking a look on at the packaging and the drive.
