Overview

Hardware:

Price at time of Review: $149.99 for Upgrade Bundle and $139.99 for Stand Alone Drive
 

WHAT WE LIKED:

Outstanding performance, Fast read and write speeds, Great Aesthetic Appeal
 

WHAT WE DISLIKED:

Only one color available.
 
BOTTOM LINE:
HyperX offers a 3 year warranty with the Savages Series SSD's and offering the 240GB drive at a price of $149.99 for the upgrade bundle we reviewed today and $139.99 for the stand alone drive if you don't need the extras from the bundle, we find this to be prices competitively with its competition. with considerations that this drive is targeted towards the Medium-Heavy use Gamers, PC Enthusiasts and Professional Content Creators, the HyperX Savage drive is something to desire.

Package and Contents

Before we get to the details of the drive at hand, let’s take a look at the package and contents at hand. When it comes to HyperX’s artwork and package, we’re no stranger to its design and layout. HyperX does a good job by remaining consistent with its logo and attention to detail. We have the model numbers and quick specs on the front of the package.

At the rear of the package HyperX goes into a bit more detail about the Savage SSD. HyperX sent us the SSD upgrade bundle kit so it comes with a bit more content than a stand alone drive. We’ll go over more of its contents in just a moment.

2

Once we got the package opened, we find the drive nicely fitted into black foam cut out. The packing internally was the same as what we saw with the Kingston HyperX 3K line that its replacing. So again, its nice to see that they are consistent at what they are doing. The drive is well protected during transport so kudos to HyperX.

Underneath the drive we find the bundle pack of hardware that makes up the upgrade kit from HyperX.

4

The break down what’s included going from left to right: We have the 3.5″ SSD adapter plate, shim for the drive, USB 3.0 external hard drive case, screws, SATA cable, HyperX tool kit, HyperX sticker and also a free copy of Acronis True Image HD CD key. We have to say that HyperX is pretty generous with this upgrade kit.

5

While you probably won’t use everything in this kit, its nice to see that HyperX does have you covered. Let’s move forward and take a look at the specification and features from HyperX.
