Great performance... after two years rocking it!

Summary: I had forgotten I wanted so bad to post a review. In simple neat words, 2 years have passed since I bought this article and it's still rocking. I've had installed it in 4 computers between personal and job computers and works like a charm. Delivers high, reliable, fast performance for an mSATA and now as SSD since I've bought a caddy for it. If has a good price, don't hesitate, buy it.
Summary: Ordered 5. Have installed 3. 1 of the 3 have already died after just 5 hours of use. Not even recognizable in BIOS. Swapped with other identical drive and computer to verify the failure is with the drive. Dead SSD is dead. Two stars for price and R\W speeds, but it looks like you get what you pay for. Hope the other ones last longer than five hours.
Summary: Lightning fast compared with my 7200 rpm drives. I have nothing to compare it to in the way of SSDs. I went with this version rather than the Cruzer because the performance specs were higher on this one. My laptop, Toshiba X70, made it difficult to install, but that's not the fault of the Mushkin. I would have given this 5 stars, but there is no screw included to complete the installation.
Summary: Bought this for my Lenovo Thinkpad x230 to go along with my 500GB 7200rpm spinning disk. The Mushkin Direct Atlas Deluxe 120GB mSATA is my O/S drive loaded with Win7 pro. Cold starts take about 20 seconds to usable desktop. This thing is super responsive and a delight to use. Love SSD! Oh, one other thing. Formatted this drive shows 119GB available. So if you're thinking about the difference between the 128GB drives and 120GB drives, I don't think there is a difference.
Summary: After reading about the value of using a SSD as a boot disk, I looked far and wide for the right way to get the benefits in a laptop without having to give up a high capacity hard drive too. Nearly all the 2-hard-drive solutions required the purchase of a 17" screen size laptop, which is larger than I want to transport around.
