    Really no reviews, but the pricing (and claimed performance) of the 500GB version caught my eye:

    • 500GB M.2 (2280) PCIe 3.0 x4 NVM Express 1.2 SSD
    • Compatibility: Desktop PC / Laptop Notebooks
    • Max Read: 2,680 MB/s ; Max Write: up to 1,755 MB/s
    • Silicon Motion Controller: SMI SM2262
    • 3-Year Limited Warranty
    It looks like Newegg is also priced about the same for the 500GB version:

    Never had any issues with any Mushkin product. Could you expand a little on why you think they are a crappy company?
