Kingston is a major manufacturer of a number of devices, primarily associated with different types of memory. In addition to production of the most massive solutions the assortment of producer is also notable for the presence of an extensive line of HyperX, designed to meet the needs of gamers and overclockers.

The manufacturer claims the read and write speeds of the new item at a level of 90 and 30 MB/s respectively. Looking ahead, we note that these figures were obeyed without many efforts.

You've probably already noticed the compatibility list, where in addition to operating systems the manufacturer guarantees the support of operation of new item with game consoles PS3, PS4 and Xbox 360 (the last supports only FAT32 formatted drive).

Therefore, we only note that the 5-year warranty on the flash drive is not a common case. Therefore, the manufacturer does not doubt that during even such a long time this drive can performs user’s tasks without problems.
