Kingston has announced that it has started shipping 2.5-inch HyperX SSD drives, which are equipped with 6Gb/s SATA Rev 3.0 and featuring the SandForce SF-2281 controller.

These drives are fast ... really fast, capable of a read speed of 555MB/s and write speed of 510MB/s.

The 120GB version will set you back $270, while the 240GB is $520. This price is for the standalone SSD, if you want a fitting kit (screws, cables and so on, that adds an extra $15/$20 to the bundle).

If you want speed, this is the drive for you!
