Mushkin SSD comparison, whats the difference?


May 4, 2012
I've done alot of reading, and searching, and still have little understanding of ssd's when comparing them to each other, i am pc proficient, but not up to date. Just recently built my new pc and looking for an ssd to use for windows drive.

What is the real world difference between these 2 drives? Is it worth the price difference?
Do you recommend either for a boot drive?
Are there other drives in this price range(under 200$) that are far superior or more reliable, or 240gb and still decent?

Mushkin Enhanced Chronos Deluxe MX MKNSSDCR120GB-MX

Mushkin Enhanced Chronos Deluxe MKNSSDCR120GB-DX

Corsair TX850
ASRock extreem3 gen3
i5 2500k @ 4.2
Evga gtx-580
8gb g.skill ram



The DX is the fastest SSD Mushkin has, in addition to Toshiba branded synchronus (read/write same speed) NAND. The MX has some generic synchronous NAND, and the base model has asynchronous NAND.
