What happened to the blue Kingston HyperX SSDs?

There used to be two types of HyperX SSDs manufactured by Kingston Technology... The original blue one, and the cheaper black/3K version... The blue is no longer on the Kingston website. Any idea why?

    The HyperX was discontinued and replaced by the HyperX 3K.

    SSD & HDD manufacturers discontinue models all the time when they introduce new models.

    WTH?? That version was just about a year old... Spent around $400 on the SH100S3/240G model! Hopefully there isn't something seriously wrong with that :(
  3. It's really very normal... doesn't mean there's a problem. Tech advances and models get improved very quickly and there are other reasons, supply contracts etc. I'm pretty sure about everything but my PSU and case are discontinued and several of the parts are only a year old. Not really something to worry about.
