Super low latencies and great TurboWrite performance for not much more than mid-to-high-end SATA drives--when bought lightly used, which is the best way to go in this NAND market IMO. [Jul '17 silhex88]

The 240GB Kingston HyperX Savage sports a Phison PS3110 controller. This marks a welcome departure from Kingston's use of Sandforce 2281 controllers and for the first time in years gives Kinston a shot at competing in the enthusiast/performance segment of the SSD market. Comparing the HyperX Savage and Fury shows that the new Phision controller has an effective speed that is around 40% faster than the Sandforce based Fury. But then comparing the similarly priced OCZ Vertex 460a and Savage shows that, although the overall effective speeds are similar, the Vertex has three times faster 4K Mixed IO speeds. The HyperX Savage is very good for typical consumer use but power users with more demanding I/O loads should probably look elsewhere. [Jun '15 SSDrivePro]
