Only The Best!


Update the Drives are still running great after 9 months and still as fast

None! No issues at all

SSD...are they reliable?


Mushkin service was excellent, If it hadn't I would have dropped the star rating 2 more stars.

Small and quiet

Died in 240 days, quick death with no lingering. I'm not convinced of their usage with computer operating systems like windows 7 as it doesn't seem to take any particular advantage of SSD ; Speed, I don't see it. There is about a 2 second diff in...

Great drive!


I'm a developer and I run local servers to develop against (IIS and SQL on Windows, Apache and MySQL on OS X). I can't even put into words how FAST these drives are. Everything I do on a day-to-day basis fits comfortably in 240GB, but I have a...

Everything the other reviews say is true. It's incredibly fast. The Sandforce controller is almost a must when used with a Mac since OS X doesn't support TRIM yet (time to get with it, Apple). Low power usage and very low operating temperature ; If...

Cost, but that's a con with all SSDs ; At 240GB, it's big for a SSD but it's small compared to a HDD

So Good I Bought Two


Sandforce controllers are speed superior and so far I have been happy with the size and performance of these drives. Put one in my main desktop as a data drive and have one in my laptop as the boot and data drive. They are both fast and perform...

High speed Sandforce controller in a relatively large capacity SSD. Assembled in the USA. Easy firmware upgrade with no data loss. Superior Mushkin technical support

The price could be better and there is no upgrade path to the next generation of Sandforce controller

Great First SSD


Never had an SSD before, so I can't objectively judge it... Thumbs Up!

Fast, And I Hope Reliable

Doesn't make hot chocolate

Mushkin is Simply the Best


Again, this will sound like a commercial, but this is the truth for our Apple computer business here in Southern California: Mushkin now just means quality to us. NewEgg is value and when you add high quality names like Mushkin to it, there is no...

This drive is unreal. Yes, the cost was painful and took me a long time to finally go for it, but I wish I'd done it ages ago. I have mine in a 2010 13" MBP and I have never had a single issue with it. I've been buying (for my computer business and...

Honestly, I cannot think of one. I guess we always wish that things were cheaper, but often you get what you pay for. I know these companies exist on very skinny margins and when you buy from NewEgg, you're already getting one of the skinniest out there

Very Impressed!


I would highly recommend this drive, despite the high cost. This is a good investment that has breathed new life into my 3-year-old laptop. Currently I have this drive about 90% full and CrystalDiskMark 3 reported the following: (1000 MB Test - 5...

After about a month of heavy use (several hours a day) this drive has performed beautifully. I'm running Windows 7 Professional, and I've clocked startup at 30-35 seconds from power-on to everything loaded. I've had absolutely no trouble with...

High cost entry point, though this is definitely one of the more economical lines of SSD. That being said it's hard to feel jipped when the performance increase is so noticeable. I can also take this device with me when I move to a new laptop, which...

Fast, fast, fast


This drive is extremely fast and has performed well for everything I have thrown at it to date

One Linux application (hddtemp) gets confused by odd characters in the S.M.A.R.T. model name that this drive reports, but that is not too hard to work around. Otherwise, nothing

Consumer review by:

Great performance, unibody MBPro beware...


Do some research on drive forums before purchasing if you are running a MBPro.

Very fast. This is a great drive if you are not using Apple hardware

There are problems with some unibody MBPros and sandforce drives. I have an early 2010 unibody 13in MBPro. If my machine is left sitting and it goes to sleep it freezes and I get the beach ball of death and can no longer log in. The only way to recover...

It's exactly what I paid for. 4 out of 5 stars simply based on price per GB (which is expected to be high for SSD technology).

Fast, quiet, cool
