    I just wanted to stop in and say that you guys do the best reviews of SSDs. You mix real world testing with generic benchmarks. Then the option to compare the drive inside the article is awesome. Keep up the excellent work.

    On the topic of Mushkin, I always assumed they were a Japanese company. So I learned something new today.

    Thanks for the great review!

    Great value when you need something "cheap" while building silent HTPCs, where speed is not that much of a concern.

    Do you think I can use this on a laptop with SATA 1.5 ?

    Shouldn't be an issue if you don't run into any controller incompatibilities. It won't support AHCI though, so that may put some more wear and tear on the SSD if you can't enable TRIM support.

    I have one of these, and besides it erasing itself 3 weeks after I got it when I moved the guts of my PC into another case, it has worked fine. I was surprised to see only 4 flash channels populated, but it still works fine (but slower than my Corsair Force 3 120GB). I'm surprised that the 480GB version has the typical half IOPS like other vendors but probably has the same chips over 8 channels? Is the "half IOPS" on >256GB SSDs a controller limitation?
