    Default Review: Kingston HyperX 3K 120 GByte SSD

    With the HyperX 3K 120 GByte SSD, Kingston has a Solid State Drive in its portfolio which is based on the latest SandForce SF-2281 series SSD processor and it also comes with a competitive price tag. The drive also features SATA-III support and Kingston claims that the drive can reach throughput rates of more than 500 Megabyte per second. Also for the IOPS the manufacturer promises sky-high numbers. When writing 4 KByte blocks the drive should be able to hit a whopoing 60'000 IOPS and more.

    Too bad the drive has a bug with TRIM...and too bad the reviewer didn't catch it.

    ?

    Even if it has got Trim bug then the enduser will have it too, so the test is ok, also we did test with the latest firmware.
    Not our fault if the Trim is bugged. Kingston's job.

    That's because you just came here to pimp your review and didn't read any of mine. SandForce FW 5.0.1 and 5.0.2 both have the issue. You can read about it here: ADATA Premier Pro SP900 (0-provision) 256GB Solid State Drive Review :: TweakTown USA Edition

    Drives affected from the factory are Kingston HyperX 3K, ADATA SX/SP900, Visiontek Racer, SanDisk Extreme and a few others. If you update from 3.3.2 or 3.3.4 to 5.0.1 or 5.0.2 you will kill TRIM. Next time you come here to pimp your article at least make sure it is a worth while read as we don't serve **** on the site or in the forums.

    Hum, thanks for the info,
    weird you seems the only one who caught it, when I google that I don't find any results about a TRIM issue on the SF-2281.

    I will check that with Kingston

    It's not weird. Most people reviewing SSDs don't know anything about them. I have a pile of drives with the issue and SandForce has already verified the issue. The fix will be out in a couple of weeks. The new firmware is in validation testing now.
