The packaging isn’t too different from HyperX SSD counterpart. This SSD is with SATAIII interface and backed by 3 years warranty support.
Kingston makes it clear that the HyperX 3K is meant for desktop/computer workloads and not for server environments on the packaging itself. You’re getting a 2.5″-to-3.5″ SSD bracket with all the screws you’ll need. This is the standalone kit. For those who don’t know, there are 2 version: this is the standalone kit- and the desktop upgrade kit is where you get a screw driver pen, a SATA III cable in blue colour, a cloning software and 2.5″ plastic USB 2.0 casing.
Kingston also mentions the basic use of this SSD drive in 22 languages, including in Hindi.
The SSD and the instruction manual is what you get to see as soon as you open the box. Flip the foam over and there’s the tray along with the required screws.
Unlike Kingston’s HyperX SSD, HyperX 3K comes with black finish on the top with the usual design.
One more point to note that Kingston advertises this SSD with 25nm Intel NAND with 3k P/E Cycles, that 2k lesser compared to HyperX. Now, this is to remind the readers that even with 3k program-erase cycles, you don’t need to worry yourself as a notebook/Desktop end user, even as a power user/ enthusiast.
