Pretty Great


Great price too

So Far running perfect. This little baby is handling a few of my virtual servers. So Speed is very important. This ssd gives my rig full potential, and the only speed limitations are coming from the other hardware

Nothing is wrong so far

Awesome, fast drive


Seriously a speedy little guy. I use this as my OS partition and to store a couple of my more frequently played games and it blazes. Boots Win 8 in about 7 seconds after POST and flips the bird to lag. Highly recommend.

Fast ; Did I mention its fast? Cuz it is ; No reliability issues thus far

It doesn't make me pancakes

This drive SUCKS! Stay away!


I have a Kingston drive that is still going strong and gets a heck of a lot more usage. Stay away from Mushkin, the other bad reviews are right!

Fast, when it is working

Completely crapped out within two months of light desktop use. Bios won't even recognize the drive anymore, now I have to completely reinstall Windows 7. Thanks, Mushkin

Great for the price


I bought on sale for $60, and installed windows, a few games, and a few other programs on this drive, and kept all my files on my old drive. So far, it runs very quick, Windows boots in about 15 sec (took about 60 sec on my old drive). I would not...

Good Price, Fast, Decent storage space

None so far

oh wow, night and day


seeing the other mushkin drives on here had more storage, but was more expensive, and the 240 version was only on sale for 100, i am pretty happy with this little guys booster punch it gave to a laptop that i believe just did not have the right type of...

this thing is fast, i had a repair shop put it in my laptop yesterday, i been taking huge advantage of the laptop more now then i have ever with the original seagate hardrive that it had. I could not do much and loading as well as system stability was...

little spendy on the per gig (but this is expected knowing ; that transfer rates of this drive is pretty quick) ; unsure of firmware options with mushkin website ; wish it was 128 instead of 120, i already knew what was going to buy and under 100...

1st one DOA


I used Newegg's mobile app to purchase so I could get the Google Wallet discount. Unfortunately Newegg does not allow me to use my Shoprunner account on the mobile app so I had to pay for return shipping (luckily it was small and cheap to ship). If you...

The 2nd disk I ordered (240GB version) works just fine. Windows boots fast and has plenty storage. Good deal when on sale combined with Google Wallet offer

1st drive (120GB) version was DOA. Neither of my computers would recognize the drive. I tried several SATA ports/cables and power supply

Mushkin Enhanced MKNSSDCR120GB-7


WORKS AWESOME on my wifes Macbook Pro


Consumer review by:



Bought one of these to build a miniPC for my mother in law. Now her miniPC with a 2-core 1GHz CPU boots in less than 2/3 the time my mid-tower running on a different brand SSD with a 4-core 3.6GHz cpu needs! I'll DEFINITELY be ordering more of these,...

Reliable ; FAST ; Boots to full GUI in < 1 minute (openSUSE13.1 XFCE Desktop)

Why didn't I find this before I spent more $$$ on a slower SSD

Alright. Well. The reason I'm actually making my review is this. I did experience the reported low data speeds reported in other reviews (about 250 meg read and 80 meg write). The reason for this, however, is not the drive or it seeming to run via Sata...

Pros ; 540 Read/500 Write (ATTO Benchmark) ; Easy installation ; Windows boots in <5 seconds to desktop with all programs loaded

Cons ; It comes with no mounting hardware or cables for desktops

Intel NUC not it's best combo


This device is listed as tested and supported by the Intel NUC Support website, The NUC has the heat-sink device attachment and tried upping the fan cycle to the max suggested 60% duty cycle. Couldn't get it to work. I am going to RMA this device,...

Installation of OS and detection by NUC BIOS went smoothly. Amazingly fast boot-up to OS using this device, as I would imagine it is for all devices in this class. Really makes an HTPC an instant-on device (as much as possible due to the BIOS boot delay)

Unable to make it work in my D-34010--DYWKH1 NUC. The NUC would only remain up approx 30 minutes before the system would lock up or crash
