Price is a little high for my liking - but it's still quite reasonable for what you're getting! Nice performance #'s!

Would you happen to have power consumption numbers?

First page typo: "INDILINKS" should be "INDILINX".

Looks like a nice drive!

Another correction.


"150MB/sec on the 64GB version and 180GB/sec"

It should be MB instead of GB.

I just received an email back from Nick at Mushkin. I had ask what exactly was the cache on this SSD was, and brought up the HYNIX H55S5122DFR chip being 512MB cache. He said it was only 64MB cache.
Any thoughts what is right?

64 sounds correct. 512 is completely incorrect.

That's what I thought. In the OCC review it was saying it had 512MB.
