SuperSpeed storekeeper: Kingston Technology's HyperX Max

Entirely bus-powered and measuring in at 74 x 119 x 12mm, the slim aluminium enclosure of the HyperX Max is similar but slightly smaller than those used to house conventional external 2.5in hard drives.

On test is the 128GB version of this USB 3.0 device. With no moving parts and fast data handling, it offers an excellent combination of capacity, performance, portability and durability. The DataTraveler Ultimate USB 3.0 thumb drive reviewed recently was impressive, but the HyperX Max moves things up a notch.

Kingston claims the HyperX Max should be capable of write speeds up to 160MB/s and read speeds of up to 195MB/s. These figures are entirely within the realms of the USB 3.0 specification and the performance figures I have seen with Kingston’s SSDNow V+ drives.
