3 out of 5 eggsNew SSD Not!

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Callisto Deluxe MKNSSDCL120GB-DX 2.5" 120GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Seems to work OK. If Parted Magic is accurate, then 1 of the 2 new drives purchased is a repackage that was a warranty return and repaired sold as new. Less than half SSD life remaining. I know no more than 10 hours has be used when received.

Cons: I hope I am wrong about time on drives when purchased. More research will be done on the subject.

Other Thoughts: Mushkin is an American Company, but no more of their SSD will be purchased.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

I sincerely apologize about this. I would like to offer you a brand new drive in exchange for the one with the (less than half life) SSD. We only ship out brand new drives to our resellers and distributors and haven't seen an issue like this before. I would like to bring back this drive for our engineers to take a look at and see what happened.

Please contact us at support@mushkin.com or submit a ticket at http://poweredbymushkin.com/index.php/support/mushkin-support-center.html. Please mention that Sue spoke to on NewEgg review regarding this issue. Our support hours are Monday through Friday 8am-6pm.

Thank you for choosing Mushkin.

1 out of 5 eggswont buy this brand again

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Callisto Deluxe MKNSSDCL120GB-DX 2.5" 120GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: fast, good price.

Cons: died after 10 months of very light use.

Other Thoughts: didn't think a SSD could kill over, I do run my laptop hot and i'm guessing that is what killed it to be fair, still the regular hard drive handles the heat just fine.

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Callisto Deluxe MKNSSDCL120GB-DX 2.5" 120GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast boot times, works great, easy install

Cons: Short life span, multiple drive failures

Other Thoughts: This is the second of these drives I've had (first one died and had to be RMA'd at around the 6th month mark). This drive has given me several headaches as well causing quite a bit of down time (had to get the drive reseeded) and now it is in rapid decline.

3 out of 5 eggsMushkin MKNSSD 120BG SSD

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Callisto Deluxe MKNSSDCL120GB-DX 2.5" 120GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Purchased to put in 4 year old Pavilion Elite HPE mother board with only Sata II headers. Thanks HP for low quality OEM mother boards for an otherwise awesome computer.

Cons: Surprised, because Muskin productsthat I've purchaced have always been of good quality.
The corrector for the SATA cable is a weak link. It has no apparent receiver for the locking clip in the SATA cable. Tried several SATA II and SATA III cables of various brands and it was the same for all. Feels like if the cable gets bumped it will pop off and loose connection.
Poor design, or perhaps mine SSD is faulty. Thinking of RMA.

Other Thoughts: Samsung seem to have better quality overall in SSD design so far
Using as OS drive for HTPC/multi-purpose machine setup. Applications will be on separate 250GB drive, data/movies/music are on NAS.

1 out of 5 eggsGives an F4 blue screen

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Callisto Deluxe MKNSSDCL120GB-DX 2.5" 120GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Is extremely fast when it wants to be.

American company, normally very high quality.

Cons: After getting the system perfect I left it alone for about 2 hours. came back and despite all Windows power setting set to stay on at all times (performance) the SSD seemed to have gone totally unresponsive. Come to find out that no matter what you do, if the SSD is left alone for more than 2 hrs it becomes unresponsive.

Weird thing is, it still left the desktop loaded into memory. I could still move the mouse but nothing would open at all. At one point after it froze I even disconnected the SSD and it made absolutely no difference. I was still able to move the mouse, etc but not open anything.

Troubleshooting done (even while reinstalling the OS several times with the issue always returning):

Updating the BIOS to latest (v.30)

Trying different chipset and SATA controller drivers from both the CD that came with the board and AMD themselves

Tried letting it sit before doing ANYTHING to the OS including updates, latest drivers, etc and the issue still happened. (SSD just went unresponsive)

I finally grabbed an ordinary HDD and did all the same updates, etc and it is still doing fine after a few hours. If it is stilklike that after anothe rhour, then anothe reboot and updates, I'll need to RMA this one.

Other Thoughts: Win7 x64 with all updates
MSI A78M-E35 motherboard
A8-5600K CPU
8GB memory
TRIM enabled
Windows boot timer reports 10.5 seconds boot time. Incredibly fast for a budget rig.

I am typing this out on a Mushkin 90GB Callisto Deluxe from 3 years ago so I know they make good stuff. Just not the one I got this time.

1 out of 5 eggsNice while it lasts

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Callisto Deluxe MKNSSDCL120GB-DX 2.5" 120GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This is a nice and affordable SSD. Easily outperforms its price tag.

Cons: Short life span.

Other Thoughts: I am currently on my third SSD. The first one was on my personal computer. It died about 18 months after I got it and it was under heavy multi media/video game and graphics use so I chalked its failure up to my demanding use.

The second one I purchased for a work PC and it was DOA. Newegg handled the RMA process without any issue.

The third one has worked great for just over a year now and just has spontaneously died.
