Kingston has moved on to the new SandForce 2281 controller and synchronous flash memory with their new series of HyperX SSDs. Like previous models, cables and brackets and sometimes even ghosting software are included in the packaging in addition to a 3 year warranty. The drive comes in two varieties of package, one is intended for those planning a complete reinstall of Windows when they add the SSD to their system. The other is an upgrade kit, which has everything you need to move your OS onto the SSD, up to and including a USB casing to ease the transfer. [H]ard|OCP has the scoop here.
