Mushkin Enhanced ECO3 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs Slow, almost like an IDE drive 10/07/2016

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced ECO3 2.5" 480GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDE3480GB

Pros: It worked out of the box. Form factor is correct.

Cons: Using this drive under Linux was a huge disappointment. The hdparm -t test resulted in 170MBps read transfer rate. The Intel 256G and Kingston 120G SSD drives both clock in at well over 400MBps rates. This is on a Thinkpad W530 (3740 i7 w/24G DDR3).

I should have bought the Kingston SSD. :-(

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This simply screams! Coupled this with Samsung 256G SSD, 32Gig of 1300 RAM on an Asus P8Z77-V LK motherboard. Tasks that took 5+ hours to build have been reduced to slightly less than 1 hour. Another task that took about 2.5 minutes has been reduced to 17 seconds!

Cons: Did not buy this on sale.

ASUS P8Z77-V LK LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Overall pleased with this board. I was a bit hesitant to purchase a UEFI board with all the hype about Microsoft and secure boot, but this board works fine with SuSE 12.3 and the GNU/Linux software install went smoothly.

Cons: I only own one of these?
