Mushkin Enhanced MKNSSDCR240GB-DX7 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Mushkin Linux Mint 16 Cinnamon & Mate 05/11/2014

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced MKNSSDCR240GB-DX7 2.5" 240GB SATA III 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Mushkin USA in Denver, Colorado.
Reliable. Linux OS boot phase under 8 seconds
1,000,000 MTBF. TRIM support.

Cons: Negative reviews by persons with hardware and software issues.
Warranty period less than 5 years [why buy USA?]

Other Thoughts: Sleep late, increase your lifespan, and prosper.

Western Digital Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Reliable, fast transfer rates, extended warranty from WD, quiet. Works with older motherboards that don't support Advanced Format Drives: Jumper 7-8 and 5-6 on the WD1002FAEX.

Cons: Documentation for drive align is good, but lacking when a drive is cloned from an aligned advanced format drive. Cloned drives won't necessarily be aligned. Moving such a cloned drive to older hardware will leave the drive unrecognized in the bios, it won't show in any operating system. Some motherboards require only jumpers 5-6 to drop the speed to 1.5GBs. Others require jumpers 7-8 as well, to defeat the Advance Format features, which also slows down operation.

Other Thoughts: If cloning drives, then consider aligning all new drives before putting them into service. Advanced Format drives (AFD) used on most new hardware need no prep. Plugging a working AFD into an older computer can make it appear that the drive is damaged (think jumpers, not RMA).

  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Quality headphones 02/01/2013

This review is from: K518LE DJ Headphones (Yellow)

Pros: Solid build, above average audio. Fast shipping.

Cons: Cable length fixed. For the price, why not short fixed cable + long extension cable?
