Kingston & Techgage Present: Free Kit for Friendship Contest

by Techgage Staff on November 19, 2012 in Contests

Computer running as if it’s trudging through a tarpit in an Alaskan winter? We have just the cure: Kingston memory products. In this simple contest, all you have to do is become friends with Kingston and Techgage and you’ll be entered for a chance to win some sweet gear – including a 240GB HyperX 3K SSD!

CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. We’ll choose the winners over the next couple of days.

It’s that time of year again when most of our wallets suffer their annual beating – so how about a contest? Kingston Technology and Techgage have teamed-up to offer some of the coolest – and fastest – storage products on the market today. We’re talking a super-fast HyperX 3K solid-state drive, some sleek yet aggressive HyperX Beast memory, a brand-new SSDNow V300 solid-state drive and some flash storage for good measure!

This contest runs until December 10, 8:00 AM EST, and is open to those living in the United States and Canada. There are three prize packs to be won!


You can earn up to¬†four entries for this contest. The first step as seen below is required, while the second and third are optional. The fourth rewards Techgage’s loyal fanbase.

Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB Solid-State Drive & HyperX Beast 16GB DDR3-1600 Memory

Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB Solid-State Drive Kingston HyperX Beast Memory

Kingston’s 240GB HyperX 3K SSD delivers extreme performance – 555MB/s read and 510MB/s write – thanks in part to its highly-tuned SandForce controller and SATA 6Gbit/s interface. The company’s just-launched HyperX Beast memory modules are the most aggressive it’s ever released, featuring a sleek black color and fierce-looking heat-spreader. This series also happens to boast the beefiest densities Kingston offers – the prize here consists of dual 8GB sticks.


Kingston 32GB Wi-Drive, 32GB Locker+G2, 32GB SDHC Class 10 & MobileLite Reader

Kingston Wi-Drive 32GB Kingston 32GB Class 10 SDHC Memory Card

Kingston MobileLite G3 USB 3.0 Card Reader Kingston Locker+G2 32GB Flash Drive

You’ll be bleeding storage with this prize. For starters, we have Kingston’s mobile-bound Wi-Drive, coming in at 32GB and able to be accessed by your phone or tablet through WiFi. Camera or camcorder need a storage boost? The fast Class 10 SDHC card coming in at 32GB should do the trick. We’re also tossing in a 32GB Locker+G2 that will keep your data on the go totally secure, and to round things out, let’s add the MobileLite USB 3.0 memory card reader to the mix, shall we?


Kingston SSDNow V300 120GB Solid-State Drive

Kingston SSDNow V300 120GB Solid-State Drive

One of Kingston’s latest releases, the SSDNow V300 is the company’s latest SSD that maximizes performance while being offered at an affordable price. With the help of its SATA 6Gbit/s interface and LSI SandForce controller, this SSD delivers performance of 450MB/s for both read and write – and for this 120GB model in particular, can stretch all the way to 85,000 IOPS on the read and 55,000 IOPS on the write.
