lasted a while 12/15/2018 5:55:53 PM

Pros: Bought in 2015 or 2016 and ran it hard, finally in a mac laptop doing a 70gb transfer it overheated or something. No ragrets.

Cons: Maybe it was a little too awesome

Good for a year of moderate use, USELESS afterwards 8/3/2017 9:22:42 PM

Pros: While it works:
+Price
+Storage
+Speed
+Weight, feel & size

Cons: While it works:
-Heat
-Slower speeds while hot (Not drastic in my case, until it died)

Overall Review: I loved everything about the Ventura Ultra until it started acting up, almost a year and a half to the day, it's now useless.

For starters, I used this drive moderately at most, there were months I maybe used it once or not at all, it was mainly used to store small files from my PC and transport the odd movie to and from my girlfriends house. From the beginning I got very reasonable speeds, 100+ MB/s writing from my SSD and HDD (I don't remember actual numbers) but it did the job and quite well. It didn't heat up too hot, but when the write speeds slowed (still respectable numbers) I let it cool down for a minute and went back at it. I really have no complaints while it ran, it did everything I asked of it and then some.

Fast forward to tonight, the drive is getting scorching hot, almost unbearable to the touch and the write speeds drop to 2 MB/s, or worse. I've formatted it, let it cool off, tried small files, large files, and no matter what the write speeds will not stay above 20 MB/s. Coming from a frozen temperature out of the freezer it manages 50 MB/s just long enough to transfer my files off it before heading back to dialup speeds.

A side note; I own a Mushkin Ventura Plus 64GB drive, have used it WAY more and it's still going strong.

TL;DR

I expect more from a $120+ drive, that has seen MODERATE use. Spend the money and get something better. It's not worth the risk.

Gets to hot too handle 4/15/2016 7:36:04 AM

Pros: holds 240gb data on a usb drive

Cons: heat. gets too hot to touch. Also slows down considerably under load. If you puke 240GB of data for sneaker net transport of data it will slow down to <10 Mbs and become to hot too touch or even pull out of usb port when done.

Overall Review: For long time permanent use and to keep from returning it, I re-fomatted as FAT32 and stuck it on my PS3 USB for games, or use it to hold music for the usb ports in my car. Using a USB 2.0 port slows it down enough limiting the heat issue some. it still gets to warm too touch even if inactive. I would not buy again nor recommend. Better to have a SSD with an enclosure than this.

Great product - Four Purchased, One Broken 4/11/2016 9:39:58 AM

Pros: Best price from a well known brand.
Great read/write speeds.
Great storage capacity.
I bought 4 of them.

Cons: Unfortunately one of them ran scalding hot, like literally dangerous to the touch. I didn't bother returning since it was months past the purchase date when I actually used it.

Overall Review: Great buy, but check each unit immediately after purchase. Let it run for 5 minutes then test the temperature carefully. Handle with a paper towel or oven mitt. If it's broken the same way one of mine was, it will burn your skin. It tested it in several USB ports, and two computers from two different manufacturers (Dell and ASUS). Same result.

Mushkin, if you read this, I'll write a 5 star review if you contact me and accept a late return.

No! 8/30/2015 10:15:16 PM

Pros: Fast, until it gets hot

Cons: Gets hot and slow

Overall Review: I am responsible for the lowest benchmark for this drive (as of yet). The benchmark was preformed immediately after transferring an 8GB file to the drive. The drive gets very hot very fast, even while idle, not transferring data. It gets so hot that it should probably have a warning label. After the drive gets hot, which only takes about 5 or 10 minutes, the transfer speed drops significantly, to about 30 MB/s read and 20MB/a write.


I would have returned the stick, but newegg wants me to pay the face value of the gift certificate that came with the drive, which would make it not worth my time or money to return it. Oh, and the gift card is only worth a fraction of it's face value on online auction sites.

Disappointed!

60 Gb Mushkin Enhanced Ventura Ultra 7/21/2015 11:38:16 AM

Pros: none

Cons: Runs way to hot.
Not nearly as fast as advertised.
Speed drops to 1/2 after 2-3 minutes.

Overall Review: On 3.0 USB got 148.4 MB/s read and 62.43 MB/s write on Chrystaldiskmark. After about 2-3 minutes this dropped to around 80 MB/s read and 30 MB/s write. Drive ran so hot that I was afraid it would damage the USB port. I returned the drive to New Egg.

Keeping it Cool 5/5/2015 6:26:43 PM

Pros: Speed - suitable for running an OS

Cons: heat-up & slow-down when working hard

Overall Review: Planning to buy a medical finger sleeve with coolant gel (~$10 online). Once the sleeve is cooled by refrigeration, it can be slipped over the drive to provide cooling support. The drive's aluminium shell ought to prevent corrosion from humidity.

Slower than advertised 4/28/2015 5:23:57 PM

Pros: Sturdy case

Cons: I bought both this Mushkin drive and a SanDisk Extreme USB 3.0 64GB at the same time to compare speeds. Testing on two different machines, the SanDisk performed as advertised with over 190MB/s writes while copying a 6GB file. The Mushkin would start at around 130MB/s and fell to around 80MB/s by the end of the copy. I tried multiple tests on these two machines and got the same results each time.
