Did not last long

Pros: It worked for almost 8 months

Cons: It failed after just 8 months

Overall Review: I bought this drive on 11/23/2018, The drive was installed on a media computer and was used to store about 700mb of video files. A couple of weeks ago 06/15/2019 my wife said all the movies were gone. The drive letter was still displaying but the drive was unavailable. All format attempts failed. So the end state is the drive is unusable and all the data is lost. I will attempt to return the drive for replacement but based on the reviews of other is sounds like that may be a challenging process with Mushkin.

Mushkin Enhanced Reactor 2.5" 1TB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDRE1TB Item Number:N82E16820226596

Pros: Great SSD , a little slower than some

Cons: I purchased this item 11/11/16 and am looking at the present day price and find it hard to believe that i paid $90.00 more for it than it is listed for now. Was I overcharged ? (order #218126469). That seems like quite a price drop in 29 months

Overall Review: I would look at Samsung reviews for a comparison

I own one of these drives. GOOD SSD DRIVE

Pros: The drive has been working for more than a year as my ONLY drive after migrating the old, SLOW, hard drive over to it. NO problems ever. No loose connections like some of these reviewers. No problems with heat. Plug and PLAY BABY.
This is a good product, don't let the price fool you. Stand back Samsung.

Cons: none

Overall Review: You wont regret getting this drive specially if you own and older PC and are thinking about migrating windows or just the entire drive over to this SSD... wow what a boost.

No issues

Pros: Put to use for over a year now and withstood tons of daily video editing/rendering. I know it's not necessarily intended for that use, but it handled it well and was fairly fast relatively speaking (to other SATA-based SSDs).

Cons: No complaints or concerns.

Just purchased and have had it for a short time.

Pros: -Fast (SSD fast)
-Cost is fair for the amount of space.

Cons: -None right now (Have had it for about two weeks so will revisit my rating if it has a problem.)

Overall Review: - Took more than the 7 business days to get to me. Came from California to the East Coast on the slowest truck ever and sat in my state for about 3 days before it shipped for delivery. (My only knock and thats probably not on Mushkin but Newegg.)

Backwards Compatibility May be Problematic

Pros: - Fast
- Good capacity
- Relatively inexpensive

Cons: I bought this to upgrade the capacity of a small, low-powered Linux server which provides network attached storage. The hardware in the system is slightly older and somewhat unusual -- an Intel D945GSEJT Johnstown Mainboard that I bought in 2009. It's equipped with SATA2 (3 GB/s), whereas this drive is SATA3 (6 GB/s).

In theory SATA3 is backward compatible with SATA2. I put the old and new hard drives into a third system together and used Clonezilla and GParted to first copy the old, smaller HD data onto the new, larger SSD, and then expand the partitions to use the newly available space. For a short while everything worked; but just a few days after the switch, the system went down and failed to boot with the message "error: invalid arch independent ELF magic." This indicated that the boot sector had somehow become corrupt. I fixed it by booting off a USB stick and replacing the MBR. While I was at it I ran file system checks using fsck, and it found a number of errors on two of my partitions.

After the fix, it worked for a few more days, and then went down for good. This time it would get part way through the boot process and then die with a kernel panic indicating that the kernel couldn't mount the root file system. I booted off a USB stick again and checked the partitions for errors, and found thousands upon thousands of them. Having fsck correct the errors unfortunately did not restore the system to a usable state.

And so, in the end, I took the SSD out and went back to the trusty 320 GB Western Digital Scorpion Black that had been running flawlessly for years. It booted right up and is running happily once again. I've lost some data -- nothing irreplaceable, and not a lot of it, but it's annoying nonetheless.

I do not know for certain what caused the issues I encountered. It might be I got a lemon. It might be that I updated from Ubuntu 16.04 LTS to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS immediately after cloning the drive over -- perhaps something in the new OS version suffered a bug that messed everything up. Or it could be that the SATA2 motherboard and the SATA3 drive were not fully compatible somehow. I don't know.

Regardless, this has been a serious pain. I'm out about $130 and about two weeks of annoyance. So be advised: if you plan to use this drive with older hardware, make sure you have backups of any crucial data first!

Great so far

Pros: On the lower end of the price point for 1 TB drives.

Cons: None so far

Overall Review: I've bought three of these drives now for my systems. The first one over a year ago as my Game disk for my 8700k build. Been working flawlessly for over a year now. Get them on sale and they're a great deal.
