Engineered in the USA

Not many manufacturers can say they design, assemble and test their products in the U.S.A. But Mushkin has been engineering its products in the U.S.A. since its inception in 1994. That means, for more than 20 years, Mushkin Enhanced has been uniting all aspects of performance to engineer something you can't get from a spec sheet.

Died after 1.5 years

Pros: Was fine when it worked

Cons: The product died after 1 year of normal use, and Mushkin will force you to pay for shipping.
I had to pay $30 shipping for a defective $90 SSD. Think about that before you buy this. If you receive a broken or dead item Mushkin will force you to pay 1/3 of the value of the item to get your RMA done, they won't pay your shipping or even upgrade you to a better model.

Beware, Mushkin customer support is absolutely terrible. I highly recommend that you go for a better brand like Samsung.

At first great

Pros: Easy install, looked good

Cons: I was unable to install when I first got this, after finally getting moved, was able to get it installed. Avid WOW played, excited to have fast drive. Until it started to freeze on me, and finally bald over and over. Cannot even format and start over,

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this product unless you enjoy losing info and seeing bald over and over.

Off to a good start

Pros: Fast, reliable, solid state drive from a company with a reputation for quality.
Reasonably priced per GB for use in new builds and as a replacement for aging mechanical hard disks.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Another reviewer mentioned having to go through a steep learning curve in the process of shopping for and using SSD technology. Welcome to tech, my friend. "Plug and play" in tech is about as realistic as "Fire and forget" in military hardware. Sure, there are continuing improvements in making things more reliable and easier to use, but at the end of the day it's what you don't know that will ruin your day. I started out with 10 and 20 MB MFM hard disks for builds in the late 1980's. Compared to those, today's SSDs are ridiculously simple to install and configure. But there have been a lot of changes in tech since the 80's, in CPUs and motherboards, as well as drives. Fortunately for everyone, there are also a wealth of resources available for free on the Internet in the form of How To videos and written guides that those interested can use to bring themselves up to speed.

Bought to upgrade wife's computer

Pros: Non

Cons: Tried in 3 different laptops (W10 & W7) by USB external enclosure and straight USB sata cable and none of the computers saw this drive...no problem with the other 4 systems I upgraded. First Mushkin drive and too bad I wanted it to work out.

Works great once set up

Pros: I love the speed of SSD access. Booting up takes only a few seconds now. Any other drive intensive operations also race by at lightning speed. If I could only afford a lightning fast processor now. :)

Cons: Cons of the product as shipped revolve around the lack of documentation. If you are knew to setting up drives, do some research first. I had to school myself on drive setup including initializing a knew drive and MBR vs GPT partition structure. If these aren't familiar to you, be prepared to go back to school. Also, to set up for a laptop (no spare drive bay to work from), you will need to get an external docking port of some type. Of course, this would be true for any internal drive accessed externally.

Other Thoughts: The drive was a good buy despite the lack of setup information. Once all the setup and data migration was done, I popped it into my laptop and it was off to the races. I would recommend it.
