This drive was also highly rated. Was going to skip it originally, but at this price, I had to have it. Is slightly faster than the other SSD I have, and at 1TB, makes a great main/boot drive.

To be quite honest, I kind of wished I spent a little more on the SSD, as it was quite a large commitment. The Reactor is the cheapest MLC SSD on the market, and it does perform very well. However, after coming from an Arc 100 SSD, there is a very small, almost imperceptible speed difference in the Arc 100's favor. This is a fast SSD, don't get me wrong, but it seems to be the slowest MLC SSD. Still a good value though. 3.5 stars if I could.

Good SATA SSD, still deciding in what to use it for. Pulled the trigger on it, due a deal.

Price to performance ratio of this SSD is great (especially if you find it on sale). Packaging is very minimal but Newegg shipped it to me well packed.

Besides the programs I need for video/photo editing and coding, most of this 1 TB SSD is taken up by games. Load times have never been a problem since I started using this rig.

I'm pretty impressed with my Mushkin Reactor to be honest. I used a 500 GB model of it on a laptop upgrade for the GF, and it seemed pretty reliable. The fairly low cost of the 1 TB version sold me, as I can now most of my games all on one solid state drive. Performance is at least comparable to the Samsung models, which is excellent for the price point.

Pros: Price, decent enough performance (better than HDD for mass storage)

Cons: None really, not the fastest SSD around but to be expected

Not the fastest SSD out there but does the job and is quicker than anything i have owned.
