I use it for gaming and it is very fast.
Bought my wife a new 2 in 1 with all the best specs but it had a HDD.
Once I had moved those VM's off my secondary drive (A Traditional 1TB WD 5400RPM) onto the SSD (The Primary) the VM's went from semi mediocre to Superstar status, reaction time on the VM's was phenomenal and used less resources than when ran on the Older Tradition HD.Enter the Mushkin 2TB REACTOR SSD, So I ended up taking out the traditional 1TB WD and ended buying/replacing it with the Mushkin 2TB REACTOR SSD and moved those original VM's onto it and the performance was as with the WD SSD Superstar Status.Points Of Interest: Again while the drive is stellar and No real negatives at all just a heads up on it before you buy...- If you are using this as pure storage (Documents, Pictures, Music, etc...) than just buy a traditional 2TB that is at least 4 times cheaper- However, If your buying this for gaming, Video Streaming, or in my case running Virtual Machines then this SSD is well worth the investment.- On the Installation it was a little tricky with the screws fitting properly and had to reverse the direction of the drive connectors but was able to get it in securely.Overall: Highly recommend as long as you by it for the right purpose (See Points Of Interest for details).Specs:HP Pavilion dv8t-1200 Entertainment Laptop (June 2010)OS: Windows 8.1 EnterpriseVirtual Appliance: VMWare Workstation 12 Pro (Ver.
OK, so everyone already knows how a good SSD will speed up your ageing system, and drop the boot time on your laptop from an hour to 25 seconds (especially an old 5400-rpm HDD,) so I'll just take that as a given.I've recently been updating a bunch of my desktop computers with SSD boot drives, and I've used several different brands, including Silicon Power, Patriot, and Kingston, but I've been using smaller (less than 128GB) drives.This was my first purchase of a 250GB SSD for use in a laptop, and after a lot of (probably unnecessary) deliberation, I went with this Mushkin Reactor drive.
Well for an SSD anyway.This is the 2nd Mushkin SSD drive I've used and both have worked great.
So much for a 3 year warranty if they're impossible to contact and won't honor the warranty at all.DO not trust this company, they obviously have horrible customer service and do not care about their product quality or customer satisfaction!!
Took it out and put the other one in same time purchased and not even 6 month its start to act up.
Of course... it's also right after the return deadline so I'm out of luck.
This drive is rated to last for years, I’ve had 2 die in less than 9 months .
Not sure if it's acceptable for a drive, but I don't think it is.
