Hope to see a review of this, the Crucial MX500 is currently leading the performance per dollar and price per GB charts but these Mushkin Source are selling for even cheaper.

I remember them for Redline DDR, their compatibility was better than kingston and Corsair for value ram, I'd like to see them Compete with Crucial, Samsung, and Intel in the Consumer SSD Market

I'm still using my Mushkin Enhanced Chronos Deluxe SSD from 2011.

Mushkin source 500GB is now the cheapest 2.5 500GB SSD on Newegg ($114.99), and even cheaper on Amazon ($109.99). It's specs are similar to Samsung 860 Evo, which still costs $150. I would like to see a benchmark comparison between Samsung, Crucial, and Mushkin, now that the competition is driving prices down, and the others have had time to catch up with Sammy's superior specs. I loved the responsiveness of my 850 Pro back when it was the fastest SSD around (before PCIe, M.2, and NVMe drives arrived).

Yeah but it wouldn't stop me from buying the Mushkin if the price is right and it seems to be the case.

Mushkin drives are reliable too. They might not be a very known brand but they make quality stuff.

the ram they make is reliable enough, despite being cheap some places but expensive on some others, like mine, here is a medium / high priced brand in several stores...
