2 out of 5 eggs Started fast, slowed way down over time 04/18/2014

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced 240GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDAT240GB

Pros: double the size of the existing drive

Cons: After months of use, there are random unexplained slow downs when starting apps. Like my system (Idea YogaPad 13) will just hang for 30+ seconds when starting apps.

Using windows performance monitor, disk access times spike up to 40-50 ms when starting apps. Normally around 1 to 2 ms (when there is not any major drive access on-going). the last windows update took about 90 minutes to complete. About 1 minute per 1%. I can only attribute this to the drive as updated have all been downloaded and are available on the drive.

Because no utilities are provided, I have nothing but to assume it is a drive problem. I am guessing it is related to TRIM, or possibly TRIM not actually doing anything.
