Over the past few years USB speeds have really increased! We were stuck on USB 2.0 for quite a long time maxing out at 480 mbps. Not that long ago we were introduced to USB 3.0 which was a significant upgrade up to 5 gbps, which is 10 times the speed of USB 2.0. Just this year we have another upgrade to USB 3.1 which doubles the speed up to 10 gbps. With USB 3.1 with have a whole slew of new devices and of course some of those include flash drives. These make transferring and carry data with you extremely easy. Today we are taking a look at Kingston’s HyperX Savage 128GB USB 3.1 flash drive. This drive features read and write speeds of 350MB/s and 250MB/s respectively, a pretty cool design and a 5-year warranty.
Special thanks to Kingston for providing us with the HyperX Savage 128GB USB 3.1 Flash Drive to review.
The HyperX Savage 128GB USB 3.1 flash drive comes in Kingston’s typical packaging for flash drives, which is a simple blister pack. It is open on the front so you can get a look at the drive before you buy it.
The back of the packaging lists some features as well as the part number which is HXS3/128GB.
Getting everything out of the package you have the HyperX Savage USB flash drive, mini lanyard and a user’s guide.
