horrible

Pros: -was fine when i started using,pretty fast

Cons: after a few hours, computer crashed. turned it on to only boot into bios, tried clearing CMOS,removing all other ssds and hdds and using the other m2 slot but to no avail. now i have to go through the hassle of returning and submitting a RMA... really frustrating

Dead Out of the Box

Pros: -Should be zippy once I get my replacement.

Cons: -Dead.
-Electronics are sensitive instruments. I get that. New replacement on the way

Other Thoughts: Hard to find any information about M.2 compatability with any laptop system. From all that I read this drive should work perfectly in my new Dell G7. Came standard with an itty bitty 128GB M.2 SSD.

I put this new drive in and Win10 didn't recognize it. Went into BIOS, fiddled around with settings, still nothing.

Opened a ticket with Mushkin Tech Support. They responded FAST. Went through the traditional troubleshooting things. Turns out the drive is dead.

New one on the way. If this is the worst thing that happens to me today I'm ok with it.

Great Upgrade! Windows now loads in less than 10 seconds!

Pros: This is the 4th Mushkin hard drive in my system, and the first NVME hard drive. My computer runs smoother and faster than ever. Installation was a snap,and I used Acronis to migrate. Make sure to put the new drive as the primary boot drive in BIOS, and you're ready to go.
The 3 conventional Mushkin SSD's are now being used as storage and gaming drives, and the NVME is used for Windows and a few basic apps. Why Mushkin? Because they have the best customer support and warranty in the industry. I've been using them for several years now and only one drive has failed. They exchanged it without a lot of hassle, and even contacted me to make sure I was back up and running. And best of all they are a USA company, so when you call them they answer immediately and the rep speaks English well and not as a second language! As Mushkin moves into more products (RAM etc.), I'll be using them as my first choice whenever possible!

Cons: What is with the stupid screw? It can't cost much. Just include it already! I'm in my 60's and it's really difficult to see and start. That's not Mushkins fault, but I would love to get my hands on the engineer who decided to make it an industry standard. At least put a larger head on it.
Other than that I have no complaints. You can fall for the hype and buy a pricier drive or buy an American made product that works flawlessly. And good luck with customer service for those foreign based companies!

Perfect!

Pros: Easy to install
Recognized by BIOS
Fast enough to compare w/any brand
Great price

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I've had Mushkin products before and was not concerned that it is not a huge market leader.
This little thing is fast as h___ and you'd never know the difference between it and bigger brands,
except at the time I bought it (July '18) it was almost 50% less. Works great!

Either DOA or not campatible with x270 and b350 boards

Pros: I had hopes

Cons: Could not get it to be recognized whatsoever by two different working asus motherboards. One was intel z270 chipset and the other was AMD b350. Tried every iteration of bios settings and could never get bios or OS to find the drive. RMA'd to newegg without difficulty, and replaced with patriot scorch. The patriot drive has admittedly lower rated speeds, but was recognized immediately in bios and Win10.

Other Thoughts: It was the most economical x4 NVME (500gb) at the time, and I like mushkin generally, but my particular drive was not a winner.

First one arrived BENT, second worked flawlessly

Pros: 1) Great price.
2) Great speeds in all benchmarks I've ran.
3) Seems to stay pretty cool in my case, although I have solid airflow and am using an air cooler for my CPU which likely provides even more cooling for this SSD.
4) Love having this as my boot drive.

Cons: 1) I took off one egg because the first time I bought this SSD from Newegg, it arrived literally bent. I actually don't know how it was bent as much as it was without snapping, but the center of the SSD was almost 6mm lower than the two ends, forming a U-shaped bend. I didn't test to see if it worked and Newegg promptly helped me get an exchange, so hats off to Newegg.
2) Not the prettiest SSD.

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure if the bend was due to shipping or from the initial production, BUT I can say that the outer and inner packaging was in good shape, so I'm lead to believe that this was a manufacturing defect that was somehow missed. Double-check that your SSD isn't bent when it arrives; if it is as bent as mine was, it'd be quite easy to tell when placed on a flat table.
