Fast, Long Lasting

Pros: After 30 months it still works like a champ

Cons: Wasn't able to use it for about 6 months but that was my bad

Other Thoughts: I did have some issues at first where on a cold start I could not get past POST unless I tried a dozen times or let it sit that way for ten minutes and then try again. Actually bought a different SSD because of this and put up with it for a year. I found the issue after I stopped using it for awhile when the BIOS actually recognized and I took the opportunity to format it and its worked fine since. Somehow I corrupted something on it but that was my bad and after it was wiped I use it as my games drive now.

Another RMA

Pros: Mushkin email support has been responsive. Their RMA process has been painless. As for the drive itself, the original one lasted 2 months, the RMA replacement lasted about 12 months and we'll see how long that replacement will last.

Cons: These drives do not seem to last. I'm using a different company now for my main disk, so we'll see.

Other Thoughts: I've heard a lot of good about Mushkin, but haven't had much success with their drives. I'm getting a new version of this particular disk in my RMA. It's my hope it will have a better lifespan. If you use SSD, it seems to me you had better have a flawless backup plan.

Great for the price

Pros: -Cheap
-Reliable
-Much faster than HDD

Cons: -Not the fastest SSD ever.

Other Thoughts: I was a high school student without much money when I bought these. I needed more space and these were on a flash sale. I thought they wouldn't last for long because I had never heard of Mushkin but I'd have money for a new drive by the time they failed. I couldn't have been more wrong about that.

For the price these are a steal. I've had one as a games drive in my main PC and another as my boot drive in my HTPC. Overall great drives that have been chugging away for the last ~2 years without a hitch.

Now as a custom PC builder I still use Mushkin drives when I am on a tight budget because the $/gb is outstanding and I trust them because I have not yet had one die on me.

Unreliable

Pros: Performed well for a short period of time.

Cons: Unreliable. Stopped working completely within approximately 5 months of being installed. Not warranteed.

Other Thoughts: Purchased this solid state hard drive on the advice of a computer specialist. Assured that solid state hard drives perform well and are quite reliable. Not true. This one crashed within a few months of being installed.

What the heck. . .

Pros: I thought it was OK, although since creating a new image, my system was being glitchy. I wrote that off to the normal layering of new software.

Cons: Dead as Jacob Marley. One week and some 20 hours of stacking new software, and ironing out Outlook, and everything else it takes. My time bills out at $250 per hour. Now I will have to call 20 software companies to convince them that I am not trying to screw them. Fotunately, most of my data resides on a separate drive, halleluah! Fortunately, Comcast keeps my email for two weeks. Now I have to go through 1000 emails all over again.

Other Thoughts: I thought that I could trust an SSD.
