5 out of 5 eggsWorks great so far

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced MKNSSDAT240GB 240GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Super tiny, but nice capacity. I got this for a Mini ITX Hackintosh on a Gigabyte B85N Phoenix WiFi. At the moment, it's the only drive, so no moving parts except the case & GPU fans, which is great.

The price is excellent, pretty comparable to standard SSDs. The speed is comparable as well and is as advertised (I tested with ATTO). Boots to Mavericks desktop in 9 seconds.

Cons: None, truly.

I think I might go with the 480GB if I had it to do over again

Other Thoughts: Some cosmetic things:
The LED is red and seems unnecessarily bright to me. Hard drives don't generally have lights on them at all, so why does this need one? Also, it would be nice if the PCB were black and didn't have a big, ugly "warranty void if removed" sticker on top of it. I suppose eventually these little things will have shrouds or heatsinks and will look good. Not yet, though.

A note: When I 1st installed it, the red light was persistently on, which I took to mean it was working, but the drive wasn't recognized. It turns out that I hadn't properly seated the drive, and the light should be on only when the drive's in use.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat little guy

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced MKNSSDAT240GB 240GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Works in my 2014 Alienware 17. And so far hasn't had any major issues.

Cons: Not getting the full 500+MBps read/write advertised. About half that. Its setup as a backup for my pictures and files so speed isn't my #1 concern. But if it is to another buyer you might want to pass.

Other Thoughts: Install was pretty straight forward and formatting was easy. I'll probably go for a larger capacity down the road.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Jurel Jones,

2 out of 5 eggsStarted fast, slowed way down over time

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced MKNSSDAT240GB 240GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: double the size of the existing drive

Cons: After months of use, there are random unexplained slow downs when starting apps. Like my system (Idea YogaPad 13) will just hang for 30+ seconds when starting apps.

Using windows performance monitor, disk access times spike up to 40-50 ms when starting apps. Normally around 1 to 2 ms (when there is not any major drive access on-going). the last windows update took about 90 minutes to complete. About 1 minute per 1%. I can only attribute this to the drive as updated have all been downloaded and are available on the drive.

Because no utilities are provided, I have nothing but to assume it is a drive problem. I am guessing it is related to TRIM, or possibly TRIM not actually doing anything.

4 out of 5 eggsmushkin msata 240GB

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced MKNSSDAT240GB 240GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: work well no issues but per Passmark scores slower than the competition. Bought two and one failed and I had to return it. The two I have now work flawlessly but Passmark shows other brands like IBM and so forth give a better score. Next Msata I will buy off the Passmark scores.

Cons: work well no issues except others are faster.

Other Thoughts: None good price and they do their job but DO look at Passmark scores before you buy. These do not give the best scores.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced MKNSSDAT240GB 240GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast drive, low power, good price, great support.

Cons: Synthetic benchmarks are deceiving.

Other Thoughts: The drive works great and Mushkin support is awesome. I did a synthetic benchmark using parkdale and crystal disk mark and both gave me no more than 150 write and 150 read. I contacted Mushkin and they directed me to a program that reads their drives correctly and I then received the advertised speeds. I also tested this program on multiple other ssd's getting their desired speeds.

The drive in real life usage runs very well boot up on my P152SM-S is 4 seconds from bios according to windows 8 boot timer.

1 out of 5 eggsNot good for Intel NUC

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced MKNSSDAT240GB 240GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Bought this mSATA drive to put into an Intel NUC (DC3217IYE). I wanted it to run Newznab and Playon. Win7x64 host, Ubuntu via VMware workstation running Newznab (update 6 newsgroups every hour). Average CPU load 35%. The Mushkin mSATA drive began showing issues from the installation of the O/S. Within a 3 weeks the Mushkin mSATA drive began messing up. The machine would freeze, Blue screen, become non-responsive. I RMA'd the drive and set it up again. Well, the RMA'd drive lasted a week. Im done with Mushkin. They got ~$190 from me.. but no more. BE ADVISED! With Mushkin you have to PAY for RMA Cross-shiping. I bought a Crucial mSATA drive and have had NO problems at all. In fact, I like my little NUC now.

Beware. Mushkin isnt as 'L33T' as the aura.

I lhave nothing against Mushkin. Just my experience with them. It was bad. I will never buy another Mushkin product again.

Other Thoughts: Pass this drive up.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for Acer W700

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced MKNSSDAT240GB 240GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This thing is exactly what I needed to boost my Acer W700 Windows 8 tablet above the paltry 64gbs that it came with. So far it has worked like a charm!

Cons: None. This thing works great!

Other Thoughts: It was a little tricky to get this installed, but that is consequence of the design of the Acer W700, not this product.

5 out of 5 eggsImpressed

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced MKNSSDAT240GB 240GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Very FAST!! Installed in an Asus EP121 Slate - and it boots Win 8 in a few seconds.

Cons: I can't think of any.

Other Thoughts: I usually don't write reviews. I don't like to "endorse" things. Like most of us, I stewed and read all of the reviews - and finally held my breath and took the plunge. I'm VERY happy with the result.
