4 out of 5 eggsmushkin atlas

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Atlas Series MKNSSDAT120GB-DX 120GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: works as stated. windows 8.1 boot time to username screen went from 20+ to less than 10.

Cons: had to format with disk management. wasnt plug and play.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing Mushkin.
We appreciate your feedback and support.

The main reason why we ship our drives without pre-formatting is because our products are compatible with various operating systems; all these systems have their own types of formatting and often times are not compatible with other operating systems' formatting.

5 out of 5 eggsOver 3 years - Review

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Atlas Series MKNSSDAT120GB-DX 120GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Cons: None that I have had.

Other Thoughts: Hope this helps as many reviews has helped me.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed in less than 3 months

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Atlas Series MKNSSDAT120GB-DX 120GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Cheap, fast shipping. Mushkin agreed to RMA quickly.

Cons: Failed in less than 3 months, customer service quickly agreed to RMA as if this is a common occurrence.

Other Thoughts: If you need a drive for important documents and data I would not rely on this drive. BACK UP YOUR DATA!

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsFailed after less than 3,000 hours! Data lost!

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Atlas Series MKNSSDAT120GB-DX 120GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Decent price for capacity
Was fast when it was still functional

Cons: Failed after less than 4 months!

Other Thoughts: 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 power on hours it failed! I tried booting to Windows install disk hoping to just recover the boot partition and get back in. The drive was seen but with a 33KiB empty partition. This is a 120GiB drive. I booted into a Linux recovery disk hoping to get my files off it, no luck. All the stuff on that drive is gone! Linux also saw a 33KiB empty partition. Tried mounting /dev/sda to /tmp/diska in a vain attempt to get my stuff off. Mount failed since there are no NTFS partitions left on the drive.

Will not purchase from this company again.

1 out of 5 eggsStopped working

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Atlas Series MKNSSDAT120GB-DX 120GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Long 3 year warranty

Fit perfectly in my Dell laptop unlike another brand mSATA drive I tried

Worked perfectly for almost sixty days

Cons: Quit after less than two months

Despite the claimed 3 year warranty, Mushkin still refuses to provide an RMA

2 out of 5 eggsLong Term Update

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Atlas Series MKNSSDAT120GB-DX 120GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This drive has treated me well, has been responsive, and has been relatively fast early in its life. It took my MSI gaming laptop to new heights when originally purchased.

Cons: Drive now runs hot constantly...generally 51* C at idle, often over 60 after a fresh boot.

Drive has slowed down tremendously. I have windows installed on my HDD just in case this thing crashes, and the speed difference between the two is now hardly noticeable. I have a fresh install of windows about a month ago, and have never installed anything other than windows itself and a few small programs on this drive since purchased new. It no longer runs like it should, and the drive has barely seen much use seeing how little has actually ever been installed on it.

I now experience hangs from time to time too when doing small things like opening multiple programs at the same time(small programs like MSI afterburner for GPU and hwinfo64 for overall logging and steam for gaming). this has always been a routine to open all three of these back to back when I am preparing to start a game, and now it will cause a 10 second hang. Also browsers will hang if I restore old sessions with multiple tabs. The rest of my hardware is in top shape, so I know there is no other underlying issues...computer runs great if booted off the HDD instead of SSD.

Other Thoughts: Not a bad drive, but I'm certainly not impressed with the degradation of this thing so early. For a drive like mine that has seen nothing but windows and one handful of programs its entire lifetime, this thing should run full steam ahead for years to come.
While I won't say it has been an awful drive, I likely wouldn't buy another and I don't know that I would recommend to buy one to anyone I know if this is typical of Mushkin SSD's.

4 out of 5 eggsMushkin died after 2 years 2 months and got a replacement pretty quick

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Atlas Series MKNSSDAT120GB-DX 120GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Nice for the price and performance. My 1tb hd took a minute to boot up and was laggy. After slapping in this Mushkin 120GB my Windows 7 boot time was down to 10 seconds on my Lenovo Y580. pretty good compared to traditional hard drives

Cons: Sad part is it died after 2 years 2 months and lost all my data. Mushkin was pretty fast to replace it under the 3 years warranty as promised and everything is as fast as before

Other Thoughts: Should be of a better quality because it died just over 2 years

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing Mushkin.
We appreciate your feedback and support.

3 out of 5 eggsmSSD Drive

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Atlas Series MKNSSDAT120GB-DX 120GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: It works.

Cons: Does not work as advertized. The Write Speed is ony 160, and the Read Speed is only 395. I keep it, but not for what I wanted it for, I am using is as a backup drive. But if you are looking for speed out of the drive like I was, their proived information is not correct.

Other Thoughts: Does not work as advertized. The Write Speed is ony 160, and the Read Speed is only 395. I keep it, but not for what I wanted it for, I am using is as a backup drive. But if you are looking for speed out of the drive like I was, their proived information is not correct.

1 out of 5 eggsArrived defective

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Atlas Series MKNSSDAT120GB-DX 120GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Timely delivery, outside looks new

Cons: Plugged in and the memory didn't work. Ran various tests and something is wrong internally.

Other Thoughts: This is the 3rd time I've attempted to get this SSD, the first two times failed due to other reasons, and this time, the SSD is dead on arrival. It was originally a birthday present for my brother and it is now almost 2 months late, and he doesn't have a working SSD. My buying experience on this site seems to have taken a very sharp downwards turn.
