*UPDATED!*

With an aging Apple MacBook 5,1 Aluminum, I knew it was time for a hard-drive upgrade. I was already maxed out on RAM (8GB), and space wasn't an issue (Hard Drive Caddy with Samsung SpinPoint 1 TB)...I knew that an SSD was the last upgrade I could perform for a speed boost before biting the bullet and upgrading! Now I have owned one SSD drive in the past; a SAMSUNG 830 Serieswhich set the bar very high for my expectations of this drive, both in quality and speed. I have used Mushkin PSUs and RAM in the past and had always liked the performance vs. price ratio...I hoped their SSDs would not disappoint. I opted for the "budget" non-deluxe version, for no other reason than the deluxe was out of stock when I was ready to buy. Hopefully this (first) review will help others out there to make their decisions!

This is my second SSD.
Before I had an OCZ, which I phased out as it was only a 120GB drive.
I considered buying another OCZ, but decided against it, due to many negative reviews.
This Mushkin SSD is great, it's super fast, and I have yet to experience any problem with it what-so-ever.
Seeing as it is one of the cheapest 240GB SATA3 SSDs available, I can't recommend it enough.

Pros:
Check for Bios: 10 seconds
Grub: 5 seconds (programmed)
Grub -> to load Fedora Linux: 2 seconds (more or less)
Loading fedora: 5 seconds

System ready (more or less), total time: 22 seconds

Cons:
I found some bad sectors.

I requested replacement.

In general, the SSD is excellent, very fast. I think you should check the disk before using it to find bad sectors. For Fedora / Ubuntu or GNU in general can use the Disk tool that comes in all Linux distributions.

I've had to RMA these drive(s) twice now. I provided proof of purchase, and my information on the 1st RMA. Yet, Mushkin wants proof of purchase again, even though, they already have my information, I know this because one of their employees mistakenly verified my old address over the phone. They do this is so they don't have to RMA your products, had you not kept your receipt. Luckily, I bought through Newegg.com, and they keep extensive records and provide stellar service.

Upon my 2nd RMA with Mushkin, they sent my drive(s) to the wrong address. They made no attempt to contact me, or let me know what had happened. So, two weeks later. When I could actually get someone to return my emails and phone calls. They agreed to upgrade my drive(s). They offered to pay shipping, and overnight my drives due to them making the mistake.

Three days later, no drives, no call from Mushkin. I called to ask what was going on and I spoke to an incredibly rude, terse, and outright ghetto individual by the name of Briana Wallace. Briana very snidely assured me that they never agreed to upgrade my drives, and that their was nothing in their notes to reflect an upgrade. Briana also informed me that they had overnighted my drives three days ago, but they’re not going to arrive for another two days. So, a total of 5 days.

I've asked to have a manager call me post haste, currently pending, and patiently awaiting his/her phone call. I seriously doubt, I’ll get a call from a manager if I get a call at all.

This company is totally unscrupulous, they count on you loosing your receipts, so they don't have to honor their warranty process. They don't return your phone calls and emails within a timely manner. Their employees are very rude and combative. They'll outright lie to you, so make so you record all of your emails and, if possible, your phone calls with them.

If I could give anyone any advice at all; DONT DO BUSINESS WITH MUSHKIN!

I installed Windows 8 fresh on this drive and has been working great for the short time that I've had it. Same computer but order of magnitude quicker (so it seems). I took some advice and got a less expensive drive over something that might get better performance numbers in benchmarks. I also went with the 240 GB which is really a 256 with 16 set aside. I guess that saved me a step or two in configuring it.

Purchased in Jan 2013, failed in Sep 2013. Now let's see how well the 3 year warranty actually works and how much time, effort, & money this takes to correct. What a joke!
