Given the above, I will say that I am quite satisfied with Kingston's claims of 'performance'. This thing is, indeed, living up to expectations.
For 'everything else', I am pleased to note that everything else is 'clean'. I was able to quickly reformat the drive, just in case and all is clean. Chkdsk shows:

As for 'looks', yes, it does look cool and it does not exceed the size or weight of a 'normal' USB drive. There is a small lanyard that you can attach if you wish and a small sticker with the Hyper logo on it. More importantly, the product is backed by a 5 year warranty that consists of replacing or refunding defective units with the full terms spelled out at hyperxgaming com slash wa.
To conclude, I am pleased with HyperX's both performance and quality so it's a 5-star rating.
The packaging clearly states that this HyperX is USB 3.1 GEN 1. Well... clearly in the sense that they say so. Confusingly, 'the industry' decided to rename USB 3.0 as USB 3.1 GEN 1 so what that means is USB 3.0. I don't blame Kingston for correctly claiming USB 3.1 GEN 1 compatibility but I do blame 'the industry' for being a bit to cute here.
On the benchmark:keep in mind that just because the output says that this flash drive 'can' read or write at a 200MB/s rate, it does not meat that it will in 'real life'. Having a Ferrari [not that I have one :)] does not guarantee that my 80-mile commute to work [true] will be done in half an hour because of roads, traffic, weather conditions and so forth. Same thing here. There's a lot more than the flash drive involved into a data transfer so if this benchmarked 200MB/s+ flash drive does no better than 30MB/s in 'real life' I would look at the bottlenecks. It could be the HDD the data is coming from or something else. One thing that a benchmark such as this one provides is some assurance that it's not the flash drive and it's not computer's USB 3.0 interface that slow down the process. The benchmark results were below what Kingston claims but, like it's always the case with a car's 'mileage', their testing is probably done under some very ideal, very artificial conditions while my benchmarking is on an old, very busy computer so my results are lower.
The second and third images show how HyperX looks when compared to a perfectly decent, USB 2.0 flash drive. The second screenshot is a direct comparison, the dotted line being Kingston's. The third benchmarks the USB 2.0 device only. For 'large' files, Kingston's is 10x faster for reads and some 25x faster for writes so, this is a good one if what you care about is 'speed'. If you only care about storage, a USB 2.0 flash drive should do.
One gripe with most pen drives, this one included, is it's easy to lose the cap if you carry the pen drive back and forth. There is no good solution, the kind with a retractable USB plug introduces more mechanical problems than it fixes. I would like to see a thin cord that ties the cap to the other end, which you can remove if you don't like. You can't improvise that yourself here as the cap doesn't have a ring like the other end.

Se le attaccate a PC dotati di hard disk meccanici, che non possono fisicamente arrivare a quelle velocità, mi spiegate come pretendete di lamentarvi?
Le consiglio ciecamente... forse l'unico difetto è che sono tutte, esteticamente, uguali (tre chiavette, tutte rosse... ne avrei fatta una gialla magari, una verde o blu).
If you need super speed portable USB storage, this is the perfect product. Even if you only have USB 2.0, it's still likely to be up to 10 times faster in random performance than a generic USB flash drive, so don't let the max speeds fool you - even with slower interfaces you'll still get a substantially faster drive.
