Final Thoughts & Conclusion
HyperX’s Fury RGB SSD is one drive you’ll likely want to display in your case as much as your high-powered GPU. While you could technically use the Fury RGB SSD in a laptop, you would miss the beautiful lighting effect and you would also likely notice the additional weight in anything but the heaviest desktop replacements. The performance was great in all of our testing and we really appreciate the external enclosure supporting UASP. This really cuts some time off the process of cloning your drive over to the Fury RGB.
For the minimal cost difference, getting the enhanced upgrade kit is easy to recommend since you get the external drive case, the screwdriver and all the other extra bits. As of this writing, the 240GB standalone drive runs $59 and the upgrade kit runs $74, a scant $15 difference that is easy to justify. If you need more space, the Fury RGB is offered up to 960GB in both standalone and upgrade kits.
Great job HyperX!
