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.

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.

5 out of 5 eggsNo complaints

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

Pros: Fast enough
No data corruption

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Originally bought for a laptop..laptop had a slightly-smaller-than-mSATA-port instead of mSATA so my desktop got a second SSD... it works and loads games pretty fast so can't complain.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good

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

Pros: Very fast, has treated me well for quite some time, was flawless during most of its lifespan

Cons: After 2 1/2 years, it is starting to show signs of a young death... Occasional corruption, erratic performance...this one has reached its end quickly

Other Thoughts: Quick drive, for the price it was an excellent buy and it does its intended job well. Had this drive as an OS-only drive, nothing else was ever put on it. Booted incredibly quickly, and gave my laptop a whole new feel on an already-quick machine.

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointing

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

Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: Slower than acclaimed speed

Other Thoughts: I was excited to buy this for my brand new notebook to replace the existing hard drive. Installing was as easy as can be, very similar to installing RAM in notebooks, and then removing the hard drive. After installing a fresh version of Windows 8.1 and installing all updates and drivers, I did a speed test with AS SSD Benchmark and here were my results...
Read: 460MB/S
Write: 160MB/S

So what is going on? It's advertised to have read and write speeds in the lower 500s. This is just very disappointing, and future buyers beware that this SSD does not run at the speeds that it is advertised, it is very noticeable over using a Samsung Evo SSD...

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Obox,

My name is Sue and I’m with Mushkin customer support. The recommended write and read speeds are the maximum speeds that the drive is capable of reaching. With different systems, configuration, OS, etc - the results can vary. I apologize for the confusion sir.

Please feel free to contact our customer or technical support for further information.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked well for ~16 months

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

Pros: Quite fast

Cons: failed after a year

Other Thoughts: Well, I've been using this for a bit over a year since I purchased in April 2013 (it's now August 2014). It worked well, but randomly for no apparent reason it failed. Computer does not complete POST when drive is plugged in, boots just fine when drive is removed. Sending for RMA, hopefully the next one lasts longer than this one. 16 months is NOT acceptable.
