Mushkin Enhanced MKNSSDCR240GB-DX7 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This SSD is very fast & so far, very reliable. And you can't beat the value for this price!!! Very affordable.

Cons: No Cons as of yet!

Other Thoughts: I see an alarming rate of failures & DOA reviews here on NewEgg. It really makes me wonder how many of these people are actually qualified & have the mechnical "know how" to install & properly setup an SSD? I have purchased most all of the major brands for my own personal computers & several for builds for customers & I have NEVER seen one single failure yet in over 4 years!!! My very first SSD (a 30GB OCZ Vertex) is still going strong for nearly 5 years now! I have bought & installed Corsair, Samsung, OCZ, Mushkin & I'm on my 8th Mushkin Chronos & haven't had a single problem with any of them, so I hope that the reviews stay positive for this great SSD!!!

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F4 HD322GJ/U 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Cheap Price......

Cons: For those people bashing the Samsung name.......Get A Clue!
Samsung Spinpoint F3 & F4 drives have always been excellent, long lasting drives with very good performance. This is NOT a Samsung!!! Now that Samsung (hard disk division) has been taken over by Seagate, you are NOT getting a true Samsung drive anymore. READ THE LABEL!!! It clearly shows that this is a Seagate Barracuda ST320DM001 made in China. Those of us in the PC industry know that good quality hard drives have ALWAYS come from Thailand or Malaysia, but the junk ones are made in China.

Other Thoughts: And to PC builder.......SATAII (3Gb/s) and SATAIII (6Gb/s) hard drives have the same identical connectors. You cannot get SATAIII performance from a mechanical spinning hard drive anyway! Buy an SSD if you want that & also boot times between 10 & 15 secs.

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD502HJ/ST500DM005 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: NONE!!! Seagate is GARBAGE !!!

Cons: This drive is no longer manufactured by Samsung. Samsung has now been taken over by Seagate ? This is NOT even a Samsung Spinpoint F3 it is just a Seagate Baracuda ST500DM005.......look at the label on the HD & the item listing even says "Samsung by Seagate" I have been building computers for over 20 years & I noticed that Seagate hard drives have the highest failure rate of all..........especially those made in the last 5 years or so. I've been using mostly Samsung drives in the last few years & have not had a single HD fail yet & now they are being manufactured by Seagate : (

Other Thoughts: Why would anyone write a review 3 years later on a piece of PC hardware ??? That doesn't even make sense. It's NOT even made by the same manufacture any more & definitely NOT the same H.D it was when it was made by Samsung. It's great that you have gotten 3 years of service outta your F3 Spinpoint Mr. C but a review 3 years later is pointless in the PC industry.
