Pros: Performs decently, slower then samsung 1TB drives but is also cheaper, so it is expected
Cons: No longer american made, no longer has any advantage over other SSD brands.
Other Thoughts: I started buying mushkin SSDs in 2012, mainly because they were made in the USA. They've always performed well, and always been reliable. Same went with their RAM.
i got this 1TB drive today, looked on the label and saw those words "assembled in Mexico"
Really? does EVERY brand have to move production to another country? It cannot be that hard to make stuff here, mushkin did for years (and perhaps most insultingly, they still state "Not many manufacturers can say they design, assemble and test their products in North America. " on their website.
I will not be purchasing any mushkin products in the future. If my drive is going to be made in mexico/china regardless, I'll just buy a samsung or crucial drive, and get the better speeds.
Pros: 1KW 80 plus platinum PSU for a decent price, cheaper than the competition. appears to be made with high quality parts without cheaping out. enough power to drive two overclocked 770s and a 5.2GHz fx 6300, and a raid 5 array, with plenty of power to spare. also, LEDs for the power rails, fun stuff. Also silent.
Cons: The only issue is a big one. the cables for the psu are very stiff. the biggest issue is the cables for the GPUs are so stiff and need so much space to turn, they prevented the case from closing after the card was plugged in until the cords were manually bent down. and the case has an inch of space between the card and the side panel. those cords need to be more flexible. I dont know why they are so stiff, as the previous PSU, a rosewill fortress 750, had the same 8+6 pin for the pcie cable, but had no issues fitting.
Other Thoughts: Also, this thing is HUGE AND HEAVY. much more so then I thought a 1KW would weigh. give it some room. it BARELY fits in a cooler master n200.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cheap, fast. worked at first.
Cons: 3 out of 4 dead so far. terrible reliability. should have stuck with WD blacks. 3TB raid 5 array down to a single 1tb drive.
I ordered four of these to make a raid 5 array in a spare dvd tray in my desktop. for a couple months, everything is great. then, two weeks ago, one drive refused to show up in windows. then a second drive started clicking and making scraping sounds, and read data very slowly(<1MBps). a third drive just started doing this as I was looking into RMAing the first and second drive.
Other Thoughts: I dont think I will RMA these. they are far too unreliable, and are not worth the time or shipping costs to get new ones. Ill be going with a pair of new WD black 2TB drives in a new pc case.READ FULL REVIEW
