Good as expected


Good by price. Be smart, use SSD to system and a external disk to storage.

SSD, so a lot fastest than HDD

Not especially ; Just 128GB :)

The 2nd one is dead now also


although Mushkin is replacing the drives, I am not going to use them. I was thinking about selling them, but I would feel guilty knowing someone would be going through what I did. I would like you to back your drives and take them back for a full...

At this point nothing

the drive is junk I purchased on 2/26/2015 2 both dead May

Failed after less than 3,000 hours! Data lost!


The machine it runs in went unresponsive a couple days ago. This was powering a bookend machine from ZOTAC that I used as an iTunes relay to my NAS in my home theater and as an RDP server so I can get to my network from work. After less than 3,000...

Decent price for capacity ; Was fast when it was still functional

Failed after less than 4 months

worked for a little while

didn't work anymore after a restart. my experience tells me to just buy another brand and not keep swapping the drives to the end of the warranty

Great OS drive


Paired with a Gigabyte G1.Sniper Z5S mobo, and this little guy really flies. Boot time from cold into Windows 7 about 15 seconds, even after a year of use. Things to remember when using SSD as OS. 1) Make sure AHCI mode is set in BIOS 2) If possible,...

Still alive and chugging over a year later as my primary OS drive ; I've put it through multiple formats and OS installs, and takes everything in stride ; I think it performs faster than the speeds its rated for, never had to update firmware

none that I found

Stopped working


Long 3 year warranty ; Fast ; Fit perfectly in my Dell laptop unlike another brand mSATA drive I tried ; Worked perfectly for almost sixty days

Quit after less than two months ; Despite the claimed 3 year warranty, Mushkin still refuses to provide an RMA

A Decent Economy SSD


I had owned this drive for a little over a year and one day Windows, upon booting, warned me one of my drives was failing. I was in shock once I found out it was this SSD (my OS drive) that it was referring to. At first I thought it must have been some...

Cheap ; Solid State ; Good Customer Support

There may be some drives out there experiencing premature failures but this happens to every manufacturer. It probably also isn't the fastest SSD out there even in this price range but it's still faster than a regular platter disk and works well enough...

Good, while it worked


This could be a great value drive, if it weren't for the dying within 4 months. This is the first time I've had anything from newegg carp out on me.

It worked well while i did. Installed easily, had no problems

It's dead within 4 months of buying it. This seems to be a consistent problem. It's got the SandForce firmware ; It still powers and shows up in bios, but only as SandForce, and no OS can see it. Happened all of a sudden with no warning

Low-lifespan cells, failed at ~4 months


Get the Deluxe version, the cells WAY longer.

Fast, easy firmware updates

Today, March 24 2015 this SSD failed after only 4 months, and I had to spend all morning repairing my rig ; S.M.A.R.T. attribute "SSD Life Remaining" drops MUCH faster than my other SSDs (including a Mushkin Chronos DX). After only about 4 months, SSD...

Not as fast as you think sadly


don't recomend buying, the write speed is horrible, recommend from personal use the Kingston 120gb ssd for a similar price ssd. its a good cheap well performing ssd for a boot drive.

good price, average to good seq read speeds

i liked mushkin products but when doing windows updates and installs this ssd was very slow for a ssd, crystal disk mark showed good read times that are close to what they advertised witch is fine im not going to picky but the write times were soo bad...
