Pros: Very fast, about 8 second boot. No issues with installation. Overall a good buy.
Cons: Flimsy SATA port.
Other Thoughts: Had this drive for almost 2 years with zero problems. It's a great budget SSD.
Unfortunately, when I took apart my tower for cleaning the other day, the SATA bracket (the L-shaped plastic bit that holds the contacts) broke off the drive into the SATA cable connector. Using electrical tape, I have been able to force the contacts into position in the SATA cable, but this is only a temporary fix. I have already contacted Mushkin support and will be RMA'ing this once all my files have been backed up. Mushkin support was very friendly, helpful, and I did not have to wait at all.
I believe the design of the connector could be improved, but because this is currently the standard for all drives, can't really knock a whole egg. Also, I will be switching out all my SATA cables to the flat, right angle style to reduce the strain on the port / connector. 4.5 eggs!
This review is from: LG 60" Class (59.8" Diag.) 1080P 600 Hz Slim 3D Plasma TV with Smart TV 60PM6700
Pros: + great picture quality
+ thin profile; sleek
+ 2D to 3D conversion; general 3D quality is good
+ stream from home PC
+ smartphone remote control app
Cons: - very slow user interface
- very slow / poor wifi connection for browsing Internet / streaming Netflix
- apps (YouTube, Internet, games) UNUSABLE due to lack of system memory; constant error messages
- built in speakers poorly balanced with speech often muffled
- connecting Ethernet from modem / router to TV causes looping reboots, forced to use wifi
- gets very hot; fire hazard
- 3D glasses expensive + flimsy; requires charging
Other Thoughts: I am very happy with the picture quality....However, the "smart" features this TV boasts are hardly functional. Navigating the user interface is extremely slow and using any of the apps or the Internet is impossible due to a lack of system memory, or some underlying issue with software or components. Returned first TV due to looping reboot which was caused by to connected Ethernet line (troubleshooted second tv with identical issue).
This TV is being marketed as a Smart TV, but it is hardly that. Comp this TV to non-smart TVs as the only thing you are really getting is the picture quality. Disappointed and looking to switch within the year.
