ViewSonic VG2436wm-LED Black 24
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fantastic real-estate even for my bad eyes. After several months I have no concerns. I'm think in a 2nd one to create a dual-monitor setup; only waiting for upgrade to my desk.

Cons: None

Mushkin Enhanced Callisto Deluxe 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Didn't have it long enough to really enjoy any pros.

Cons: Less than 2 months and it crashed my Windows 7 Professional HP Elite i7 computer. As long as it was still connected I couldn't even get into the bios -- made me think it was my motherboard. Best Buy Geek Squad and $39.00 later I found out it was defintely the drive itself.

Other Thoughts: I returned it to Mushkin and begged they try to recover the contents. I received a brand new replacement and NO indication they even tried to recover the contents. I called their Customer Support and was told my letter was summarily ignored -- it is their policy to immediately scrub the drive upon receipt and then check it out. I have no comfort zone is using the replacement. I'll add this to my list of costly lessons learned.

Mushkin Enhanced Callisto Deluxe 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It is what it says it is and made a difference in the performance of my boot time. Mushkin is not hesitating replacing the drive. (I'll add a couple of eggs if they return it to me repaired and bootable, rather than just a blank replacement.)

Cons: After less than two months I received the Blue Screen of Death and could not even get into my computer's bios. Thinking this was a motherboard problem I took it to a Best Buy Geek Squad to have them evaluate it. They also thought it was a motherboard broblem because we could not get into the bios. Just as I was about to have them send it off for $400/500 servicing I told them to try accessing the bios with the drive removed -- WORKED!!. I paid them $39.00 and took the machine back home where I had a spare WD Velociraptor drive. I re-installed my operating system and was back up in several hours. Alas, it will take me quite a while to re-install all of my applications and configurations I lost to the drive.

Other Thoughts: This certainly has be thinking twice about SSDDs -- I only did this to slightly improve my overall Windows performance.
