Geek deals Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD for 164
This writer has been loving the highly competitive SSD market we’ve seen in 2012. Prices have dropped consistently over the years and 2012 has finally brought SSDs into a price range that nearly any prospective buyer can manage.For those who needed a higher capacity drive, they were stuck waiting a little longer for prices to drop, but the wait is definitely over. We have seen prices on high capacity drives finally drop below $1 per gigabyte and this is definitely a sweet spot for purchasing.Kingston’s HyperX 3K drives have been well received as a cost effective lineup that offer competitive performance and a 3 year warranty. This 240GB model is rated for 555 MB/s read and 510 MB/s write performance, but the real performance boon with SSDs comes from their random data performance, where a traditional HDD typically suffers.With an MSRP of $249.99 and a street price hovering around $200 most of the time, this deal from Tiger Direct at $164.99 is an outright steal. It is also $15 less than the Samsung 830 256GB we featured last week. This model SH103S3/240G also includes the desktop mounting bracket, to enable the 2.5-inch SSD to fit in a desktop 3.5-inch HDD bay.Click here to get this deal from Tiger Direct.
