5 out of 5 eggsUpgraded Lenovo

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

Pros: This really gave new life to a cheap Lenovo Twist. Boot time is about 7 seconds from full power off, and about 2 from sleep.

Cloned the original HD to this and it boots fine, not a single issue.

Cons: Nothing to complain about. Haven't had an issue yet.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't waste your time

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

Pros: cheap, decent customer service, 3 year warranty

Cons: first one died within a few months, got a warranty replacement, that died right after I restored my backup on it.

Other Thoughts: The customer service on this drive has been good, but I'm 0 for 2 on their drives right now, and I'm skeptical if I'm going to find a positive solution here.

1 out of 5 eggsMushkin Mishmosh

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

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Used in an NUC, it's been intermittent for 3 months now. I kept reducing its temperature with heat sink methods to no avail. Seems to be the interface IC that just locks up after a while of use, because a reboot never works; it must be unplugged and replugged to recover.

Other Thoughts: This is the third Mushkin NUC that I've had to throw out. Never had to with ADATA, Samsung, Intel, OCZ or others. I replace this one with an HP model that's made by LITEON. LITEON makes Plextor, HP and Dell mSATAs that are rated the BEST.

1 out of 5 eggsFails in 3 months

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

Pros: Cheap. Works initially.

Cons: fails within 3 months. I'm using x230 and the laptop can't access the ssd anymore. No warranty and non-refundable.

Other Thoughts: Basically I wasted my money. I suspect that the product is designed with defects so that it fails in 3 months(which is out of the replacement period of newegg). Next time I should be more careful with the products from these small companies. Of course I won't buy any product from Mushkin anymore.

3 out of 5 eggsKeep it Cool - Or Else

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

Pros: Fast and Inexpensive.

Cons: Works reliably up to +40C. Above that, it fails.

Other Thoughts: I have an Intel NUC that has a thermal pad installed to draw heat from the mSATA board to the chassis. The mSATA was runninf at about 44C and faiedl intermittently. The fix was to remove the Muskin label and the temp went down to 36C or so which make it work reliably.

4 out of 5 eggsUPDATED REVIEW

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

Pros: **THIS IS AN UPDATED (2nd) REVIEW TO MY PREVIOUS 1 EGG REVIEW**

**The first SSD sent to me caused random Windows crashes 5 mins to 30 mins after boot up. After the crash, BIOS does not detect the SSD and therefor I cannot restart Windows unless I perform a full cold shutdown (by pressing the power button off entirely).

**The replacement looked brand new, and was not the same one I had previously RMA'd. The new one is not crashing like the old one. I've had Windows running for 2 to 4 hours at a time. The one thing I did differently this time though was to unplug the stock 7200 RPM hard drive prior to installing Windows 7 on the SSD. I do not know if that made a difference or not.

PROS: I installed Windows 7, 64-bit on my MSI laptop (model GE70 2OE-071US) and it boots up to the Windows desktop in 9 seconds vs 39 seconds for the regular 7200 RPM hard drive.

Cons: After the RMA replacement, none, other than the constant fear it might friggen die on me. 1 egg off for that.

Other Thoughts: Do yourself a favor and if you decide to purchase this, immediately try it out. If you experience the crashes like everyone else here, return this for an RMA before the 30 day period.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed after a few months

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

Pros: Fast

Cons: Drive failed completely after a few months

Other Thoughts: I was initially happy with this drive, but after a few months it failed completely. No drive should fail that quickly, and judging by the other negative reviews this is a common problem for this device. Next time I will spend a little more money and find a more reliable device

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible SSD, don't purchase

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

Pros: Fast if it works
Installation is easy on a Sager Notebook

Cons: Appears to run hot. The drive is separated from everything and still gets very hot. Touched the bottom of my computer and feel cool but the drive marks from 60 to 69 Celsius (The regular hdd marks a cool 40 Celsius).

Fails after a few hours of use. The first one didn't work well from the beginning, failed after a couple of minutes. Got a replacement and everything looked good until recently the OS started stalling again after a couple of hours of use.

Other Thoughts: Will not send it back because i don't want to get the same defective model.
