Well-made SSD, very disappointing performance 1/22/2020 3:21:08 PM

Pros: First, these Mushkin 250 GB 2.5" SATA III SSDs (MKNSSDSR250GB) are a well-made SSD. The enclosures are thick metal and accurately made.

Second, these SSDs are inexpensive compared to high-end products from Samsung and Western Digital.

Cons: We purchase and use SSDs primarily for their superior performance over mechanical hard disks.

Using the free utility ATTO (v 3.05) - I tested 2 Mushkin 250 GB and 2 500 GB SSDs in a variety of Dell desktop and laptop computers. The results were consistent for each system and SSD.

The performance was very disappointing, especially the write performance, which was consistently inconsistent.
- Peak read performance is good - up to about 550 MB/s, with the low-end at 450 MB/s.
- Peak write performance is OK - up to almost 500 MB/s, with the low-end at 19 KB/s, which is unacceptably slow.
- Once the transfer size reached 64K up to 64 MB, write speed would go back and forth between 450 MB/s and 31KB/s with little variation.

Using the free CrystalDiskMark (v 6.0.2), it shows better average read and write performance (539R/458W MB/s), but Crystal does not show details across the range of data transfer sizes. Based on CrystalDiskMark results, Mushkin SSDs are mid-to-low tier performers.

Overall Review: My educated guess of the write performance problem is the built-in SATA controller doesn't have a large enough write cache and uses a 'low-cost DRAMless controller' according to a Mushkin Source SSD review at TweakTown.

I would NOT recommend this SSD. There are much better low-cost SSD options from Corsair, PNY, and SanDisk.

Good while it lasted 12/23/2019 10:07:47 AM

Pros: Was fast and worked well while it was working. Good customer service that honors their warranty.

Cons: After a month or so, started showing signs of failure, that I did not pick up on. I thought my computer was giving me troubles by not loading up and always saying that it needed to find the OS and reboot was required. This turned out to be early signs of SSD failure, not an issue with the computer. SSD failed after 7 months. Was no longer being read by any computer. Lost a good amount of data that could not be retrieved.

Overall Review: It's a risk if you want to get this SSD. You may have to put up with a few problems loading up every once in a while. But if you start seeing the signs, be careful and be proactive. I'll probably go back to my Seagates and Barracudas since I've never had issues with those. I purchased this Mushkin SSD because it happened to be on sale.
