I don't write a lot of reviews, but this has been a great purchase. I bought this drive two years ago (Feb. 2012). It has been in four different laptops, reformatted each time. Laptops have had water spilled on them, one dropped down the stairs, another was left in the driveway and driven over.
I just installed it in my wife's new desktop (Finally talked her out of the laptop) which is what got me to thinking it has been fairly resiliant, and then I got to thinking about everything it went through, and decided to write this review.
Not the fasted drive on the marker. Personally, I would not own a computer anymore without an SSD, but I do not notice any real world difference between difference SSD's.
If you are looking for a low cost, medium capacity, super reliable drive, I would absolutely recommend this.
Bought this on December 26, 2010 for $434. Didn't utilize it until September 2013. Worked fine until August 16, 2015 - simple Debian distro upgrade, reboot, and...drive is corrupted and useless. Cannot format, cannot reinstall, cannot save data, just keeps failing due to the Input/Output error on sda1. Didn't last 24 months. On Debian.
I will not hesitate to buy from them again. Support from the company on their message boards is impressive. They do a good job up updating the firmware. It was very easy to install on my notebook with a fresh copy of Windows 7. Performance has been excellent. You can't go wrong with Mushkin. I'm getting 260 MB/sec write and 280 MB/sec read on my SATA 3.0 notebook. Not much slower (maybe 10 MB/sec less) than the Vertex 3 I had in there earlier. The Vertex 3 is now in my wife's desktop doing 500+ MB/sec.
