Kingston HyperX MAX 3.0 Review

Nowadays, portable data drives are using flash memory storage architecture to help users carry around heavy volumes of information with ease but they aren’t grabbing large volumes yet. Rather with the princely premium they command in the hardware market, over their hard-drive based counterparts. Kingston’s HyperX Max 3.0 is an external USB 3.0 drive that doesn’t really fix the pricing issue, but gets other aspects ready for the user.

The usb cable supplied by the manufacturer, works with the newer USB 3.0 ports as well as the other 2.0 ports. Like other external hard drives its got an activity light to indicate the flickering data transfer.

The USB 3.0 is extremely fast, transferring multi-gigabyte files in around a minute. It’s quiet and resistant to knocks and bangs, but comes with a massive downside – the price. Of course, you also need a USB 3.0 port to make use of all that high speed.
