Quick drive


This drive is FAST. I boot into my desktop, ready to go, in 20 seconds flat (Win7 HP 64-bit). Steam launches almost instantaneously, as do After Effects and Photoshop. Low power consumption and heat. My monitoring software can view all the drive use...

120GB doesn't go quite as far as I thought it would, but I knew that 120GB is 120GB so I won't dock eggs. I have Windows and a couple programs (Adobe Production Premium CS6, Steam, Origin, Chrome, Spotify, Pulseway, and fan controller software, all...

I was excited to buy this for my brand new notebook to replace the existing hard drive. Installing was as easy as can be, very similar to installing RAM in notebooks, and then removing the hard drive. After installing a fresh version of Windows 8.1 and...


Slower than acclaimed speed

hard to "break"


I have this mushkin 120GB since a few years back when it was selling at around $250 plus tax at the time. This poor mushkin SSD was constantly being abused by me and I haven't found a way to "break" it yet. It was firstly upgraded for my pc as a...

can't break it

Worked well for ~16 months


Well, I've been using this for a bit over a year since I purchased in April 2013 (it's now August 2014). It worked well, but randomly for no apparent reason it failed. Computer does not complete POST when drive is plugged in, boots just fine when drive...

Quite fast

failed after a year

It does the job, not the best.


First ; Worth the money but the highest read/write I got in a benchmark was 280 read and only 101 write... Not very impressive for an SSD...but I mean, it's inexpensive and because it's an SSD it won't frag, definitely boots a lot faster than...

Everything really explained in the pros

Its ok


I have only used mushkin ssd's. however this is the first one i have got that is not a DX or MX, and i could tell the difference as soon as the install. boots about the same, speeds about the same, but there is an ever so slight latency or something...

mushkin reputation, fast, price has really come down on these in the last 6 months to a year

none so far

Trusted SSD


so far no problem, installed on two i3 laptops. low power consumption and fast read/write speed. only took maybe 2hrs to do full win 7 install +sp1 updates and so on. with regular hhd took me more than 6hrs to do full updates with fresh install.

Very fast for the price compare to the other brands. reliable

none so far

Fastest and cheapest


I've ordered several of these for IT clients, I've had only 1 come in DOA - but Newegg is great help with that

I have compared the speeds of many SSD's and this has the best cost I've seen. Not only is it the best cost, but it beats out speeds from OCZ, Corsair, Intel, and Samsung
