Kingston HyperX Savage 240GB SSD: Detailed Review

Kingston’s HyperX Savage SSD had us all skeptical in the beginning. After all, the last time we came across an SSD with a Phison controller, i.e. the Phison PS3109-S9, we were far from impressed. So far, that it was outright painful to continue benchmarking that particular drive. But Kingston’s HyperX Savage was a completely different experience and the controller at its heart, the Phison PS3110-S10 surely does deliver top notch performance. Designed to be the jack of all trades, the PS3110-S10 is compatible with asynchronous, synchronous and toggle NAND. In this particular scenario, the new controller has been paired with Toshiba’s A19 MLC NAND. 

The Kingston HyperX Savage does feel really premium with a hard board package, foam cushion on the inside and accessories for all needs. They ship a 3.5-inch adapter and an external case if you wish to use the drive as an external. And you don’t even need to go hunt for a screwdriver because they’ve clubbed that as well. It’s the lazy nerd’s care package. The SSD itself feels quite durable with a thick and heavy metal casing emblazoned with Kingston’s branding. On the inside, the PCB has 16 NAND packages all, neatly packed with plenty of spacing between them. 

From a performance perspective, the Kingston HyperX Savage was surprisingly good. Sequential read speeds were around 545 MB/s and write speeds were around 526 MB/s. Even 4K read and write speeds were way above average. It does prove to be a formidable opponent to the flagships from other manufacturers like Samsung and SanDisk.
