5 out of 5 eggsMushkin mSATA 240GB

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Atlas Series MKNSSDAT240GB-DX 240GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Excellent drive. Fit my Precision M 4600 series laptop perfectly. Using in a RAID 0 array with another Mushkin SSD drive and this is wickedly fast in this configuration. Excellent bang for the buck and good quality I have come to expect from Mushkin. Plus synchronous memory chips as well. Overall very pleased with this drive.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: If you want great performance at a great price then Mushkin is the one to get. I have been building and repairing PC's for years and Mushkin memory and drives have never let me down. There may be faster drives out there but Mushkin has the best performance to value ratio out there. Fast shipping as usual from Newegg.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing Mushkin.

1 out of 5 eggsTwo failed drives - so far

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Atlas Series MKNSSDAT240GB-DX 240GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast

Cons: Didn't last.

The first one failed at about 4 1/2 months. It was replaced under warranty.

The replacement failed in less than 6 weeks.

Currently in the process of returning it for 'another' new drive, but will likely just cut my losses and go with a different company, then give this sub-par mushkin product as a gift to someone I don't like.

Other Thoughts: Usage was 7-days a week of typical college work. Nothing excessive.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Well

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Atlas Series MKNSSDAT240GB-DX 240GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Works well in my daughter's Dell laptop. Only gets about 230 MB/s read throughput, but that may be due to the laptop's SATA controller, it may only be SATA II instead of SATA III. But still much faster than a slow laptop HDD.

Cons: Not quite as fast as I'd like, but again that may be due to a slower SATA controller in the laptop -- it's very hard to find out what level of SATA controller Dell laptops have.

3 out of 5 eggsFailed in 8 months

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Atlas Series MKNSSDAT240GB-DX 240GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Very impressed that this drive matched the performance of my 2.5" SSD. All laptops should use mSATA drives to free up their 2.5" bays.

Cons: Failed after 8 months of use. Usage was about 1 or 2 days a week, on all day for travel and work. Nothing excessive.

5 out of 5 eggsFast and Sleek

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Atlas Series MKNSSDAT240GB-DX 240GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Significantly faster than HDD and plenty of space in a compact package. This SSD attached directly to my MSI Gaming MB through the mSATA port. Highly recommended!

Cons: None at this time

Other Thoughts: This is used as my primary boot drive which allows for amazingly quick restarts and almost instantaneous program load times.

Pros: Fast and reliable

Cons: None as of yet.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Atlas Series MKNSSDAT240GB-DX 240GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: 90,000 IOPS
Crushes my previous MyDigitalSsd mSATA
Fits perfectly.

Cons: Not really a con, but you'd think they would put some type of protective shield around these expensive devices. Exposed memory chips and soldering joints on something that holds your critical data? #Scary

Other Thoughts: This is my 2nd mSATA drive in the same laptop. The first was the "first-to-market" MyDigitalSsd brand, which was so much better than any 7200 HDD I had in the laptop.

But now with this drive, wow Windows 8 boots in just a few seconds.

Dell Precision M4700 (upgraded from M4600)
16 GB 1866mhz Hyper-X (purchased here at NewEgg)
Mushkin 240GB SSD (2.5" version) in quick-swap bay
Mushkin 250GB mSATA (the one being reviewed here)

2 out of 5 eggsupdated review

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Atlas Series MKNSSDAT240GB-DX 240GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: small size but with a large storage option. MSata gives you plenty of options due to the various Msata to Sata or MSata to USB enclosures (not to include these recent motherboards with msata controllers built in).

Speeds seem to be well enough, though when working, the reads are much higher than the writes (i'm not talking no 30MB difference either)

Cons: twice since owning from Dec 2012, i have had these go dead on me. Each time just prior to breaking, they get hot (like super nova hot).

I have tried several different means of accessing these drives (onboard msata controller & external USB enclosure)

Even when they were working, and no matter WHAT USB 3.0 port on any computer i owned, file transfers caused this ssd to get very hot to the touch.

Other Thoughts: I'm in the process of hopefully get the RMA honored again (honestly i asked if they would be willing to refund me my purchased price seeing that i've never been able to go longer than 3 months without one failing on me).

I honestly dont know what i could be doing wrong. I own countless SSD's, HDD's, and enclosures and i've never had so many problems with 1 device (this is also the only Mushkin product i own and looks to be the last)

Feel free to hit me up with questions or comments via gmailing my nickname

1 out of 5 eggsDied on me

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Atlas Series MKNSSDAT240GB-DX 240GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I use this as my 2nd drive on my Lenovo T420s. Ordered it on March 28, 2013 through Newegg. The 1st drive is also SSD, but only 128GB. Got this pre-installed from Lenovo. Am using Win 7 Home Premium.

It's very fast. No complain about this.

Cons: Last night (June 10, 2013), suddenly I can't detect the drive anymore. Check through win explorer & BIOS, but no sign of the drive. I tried to detach the mSATA from the laptop & re-attached. But still nothing.

I'm not a heavy duty users. Am in panic coz I had my personal data there (mainly pictures & docs). I'm scratching my head now on how to go about this...

Other Thoughts: Any suggestions?

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,
We appreciate the feedback and we apologize for the issues you are experiencing with the drive. Please contact me at support@mushkin.com or 800-568-1868 for further assistance.

Thanks,
Briana
