The HyperX Savage is based on a Phison controller, which is a deviation from the SandForce controllers in previous HyperX SSDs.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Performance

Competing drives have better performance, price/performance, and lower price/GB".
by techPowerUp!
However, a performance difference of 10% is something you will probably never notice in real-life work unless you do side-by-side testing.
by techPowerUp!
In order to minimize random variation, each of the real-life performance tests is run twelve times with reboots in-between tests to minimize the impact of disk cache.
by techPowerUp!

Price

With a price of $120 for the tested 240 GB version, the drive sits exactly on the magic $0.50 per GB mark, which makes it quite affordable and a good choice.
by techPowerUp!

Quality

What is also important is the quality of the product and how much you trust the vendor.
