Mushkin Enhanced Striker 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

5 out of 5 eggs W.E.I. boosted from 5.9 to 6.7 on 5-year old PC 07/16/2015

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Striker 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDST240GB

Pros: Outstanding performance on my 5-year old desktop with SATA II. Windows Performance Index jumped from 5.9 to 6.7. As a web developer I have dozens of different programs installed on my PC, and a lot of services running. Before installing the Mushkin Striker, from the time I powered up the computer until the time Windows settled down and was usable was about 3 minutes. Now it only takes about 30 seconds to load Windows and be usable. Applications which previously took quite awhile to load are now snapping to attention.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Newegg should be shot for offering as a shipping company. Their rating on Google Reviews is 1.4. My package arrived in Denver on July 8th. It apparently sat in the OnTrac facility until July 15th when they took it to the post office. The post office delivered it on July 16th. OnTrac is disgraceful. MAKE SURE YOU SPECIFY UPS 3-DAY GROUND unless you want to wait almost 2 weeks from the moment you place the online order.

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Nice, bright flashlight, and emergency power for my tablet or phone when their batteries are drained.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I have a hunch the power stops flowing from the power bank to the tablet after both devices have the same amount charge. Good gift item too.

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I've been using these cards in 2 PC's for two months without any problems. Received antennas in the box on both units.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Software has an option to install basic Windows software or else a full featured network tweaking interface. Life is short, select the basic install unless you have special needs and a lot of experience in networking.
