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.

Thank you for choosing Mushkin Enhanced.

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.

2 out of 5 eggsIntel NUC not it's best combo

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

Pros: Installation of OS and detection by NUC BIOS went smoothly. Amazingly fast boot-up to OS using this device, as I would imagine it is for all devices in this class. Really makes an HTPC an instant-on device (as much as possible due to the BIOS boot delay)

Cons: Unable to make it work in my D-34010--DYWKH1 NUC. The NUC would only remain up approx 30 minutes before the system would lock up or crash.

Other Thoughts: This device is listed as tested and supported by the Intel NUC Support website, The NUC has the heat-sink device attachment and tried upping the fan cycle to the max suggested 60% duty cycle. Couldn't get it to work.

I am going to RMA this device, since the NUC using the slower 2.5 WD-Blue 1 TB drive has held up for the past two days. The startup times are striking. Too bad I couldn't get this to work.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

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

Pros: My laptop only can fit a slim 2.5" hdd so a normal SSD won't fit. So I used this with a Syba sy-ada40050 mSATA adapter (from newegg) and a little ingenuity to put this SSD into my ChormBk. Works like a charm.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: Amazing shipping speed. Ordered Tuesday, got it Wednesday. Also a great price.

5 out of 5 eggsNICE!

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

Pros: SATA III / Cheap / WOW SMALL / easy to install / Boot time cut from 9 seconds to 6!
... yes, 3 seconds isn't a big drop ~ but it's a new "out of the box" laptop with no new bloat on it yet.

Cons: none yet

Other Thoughts: should have gotten a bigger card!
I picked the MSI laptop and the only thing it was missing was the SSD boot drive.
...thus I picked this up.

1 out of 5 eggsNot impressed!!!

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

Pros: Very fast "IF" it works. Booted windows in seconds, WEI 7.9 windows 7.

Cons: Obviously quality is a concern, after reading that some of these drives arrived DOA, i decided to take a gamble. Glad i didn't bet money. My drive gave random BSOD, had random boot issues, issues in standby. Sometimes my BIOS wouldn't even show the drive connected. After multiple tech support sessions and reinstalling windows i found this drive was causing my issues. Mushkin was willing to replace to drive which was good but they wouldn't ship to an APO address. So here i am without my laptop working for a few extra weeks while this drive ships to my home address, then to me. Just seems that if you have a defective product that your customers are getting you would try a little harder to make it right, like going to the post office to mail the replacement. Anyhow, i usually like to keep an open mind and stay positive, unfortunately my experience with this product was not very positive at all. I ordered an Intel msata SSD, gonna put the replacement up for sale on the web. Will not buy Mushkin again!
