5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive

Pros: Super fast. Blazing. I have owned this for over a year now and have not had a single problem. I did have to look online with how to configure it properly and all in all that took maybe an hour but has worked flawlessly ever since.

Cons: This particular drive is relatively small in size, but it's all I needed.

5 out of 5 eggsBleeding Edge

Pros: The Sandstone 1200 controller is getting fairly mature, unfortunately this particular model is capped (not by NOT much though!) Kind of like buying an OEM Vista right before Win7 was released. MS will gladly take your hard earned bones for an upgrade.
They no longer sell this older version, but the “DX” is basically the same except it has different EEPROM programming. So you can’t just flash a F/W and uncap this model.
Good news though, Mushkin will EEPROM flash this for free (Umm, OK we pay S&H one way) and you get to have the latest & greatest again! The MKNSSDCL60GB will become a MKNSSDCL60GB –DX.
Also, as with ALL bleeding edge, DO YOUR HOME WORK before you buy.

Cons: Unfortunately, these drives have been hot sellers and I think the 2 week turnaround is unrealistic from Mushkin.
To Computerman, to even say with a straight face that a 7200 (I’m sure you meant 7.2, NOT 5.2K) RPM drive is as fast as ANY SSD is disingenuous at best. Maybe you had a bad <sarcasm> IDE cable? Seriously, you set this up wrong and then give yourself a high tech level? Ouch dude!

Other Thoughts: I can verify that Duck’s helpful post is correct. His numbers are the same as my boot drive. You can get higher numbers (still below what they post on their site), but only if this is NOT a boot drive with the running OS installed. Why would anyone use this as a scratch drive? Maybe Computerman could answer that one. I’m also a 1st time Mushkin purchaser (Loyal G.Skill buyer for years), after hitting up Mushkins forum I liked what I saw. Even though I could send back my 2 week old drive to the egg for a possible DX replacement (they seen to go out of stock fast), I just bought another Callisto DX and plan to setup RAID-0 with the RMA’d upgrade. I tend to $upport companies that do likewise.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't waist your money

Pros: It worked out of the box. Realized I could enhance the speed of my Vista with 5400 rpm Hard drive.

Cons: Startup and shutdown were slower. Ran Crystal benchmarks. 130 on read and 70 on seg. Randoms were around 10. Disabled index etc.

Other Thoughts: Maybe this drive will perform better in Xp or Win 7. But the unit appears overpriced by $100...........

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome drive

Pros: Very fast - 250-260MBps average 279MB peak
Good price
Nice firmware

Cons: The intel drives in the same price range have slightly faster read speeds (not write though :) )

Was averaging 260ish at first, but after a few days it settled around 249.5.

Other Thoughts: installed Ubuntu 10.04 in less than 8 minutes. Benchmarked using builtin benchmark in Disk Utility.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD

Pros: So far no lag problems with this SSD at all. Boot and shutdown is much faster. Programs load up with ease. Seems like one of the most affordable SSD's around for this kind of speed. This thing has very quick small read/write which is probably where you need the speed the most. I installed it with Windows 7 and install was extremely quick and hassle free. And of course New Egg was very quick with getting my product to me.

ATTO Bench - 229.9/230.4 mb/s

Crystal Mark Bench - Mushkin SSD
Seq Read - 220.83
Seq Write - 216.75
Random Read 512k - 221.95
Random Write - 217.47
Random Read 64k - 167.98
Random Write 64k - 186.58


Crystal Mark Bench - WD 5400 300gb
Seq Read - 130.67

Random Read 512k - 65.57
Random Write - 47.47
Random Read 64k - 15.51
Random Write 64k - 38.28

Cons: No where near 285/275. I expected 260/250 but it didn't even reach that.

Other Thoughts: Using it as a primary boot drive with only 1-2 games and labor intensive programs on the main drive at a time. With SCII, Adobe, Office and the OS I still have 22gb available.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Upgrade!

Pros: Overall great product! Seems to pretty high quality. Noticeable difference moving from a standard HD. Would definitley buy over again!

The new Sandforce SF1200 controllers and the speed for read and write are amazing.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have never purchased anything from Mushkin before but the look and feel of the prduct seems to be pretty good quality. The packaging was great as well. I love it. If you are thinking of upgrading to a SSD you should definitley grab one of the Callisto series from Mushkin. They have the new Sandforce SF1200 controllers and the speed for read and write are amazing.
