Mushkin Scorpion Deluxe PCIe SSD Hottest SSD Product Available As Mushkin Sells Out Once Again

Since the release and exclusive posting of our report on the Mushkin Scorpion PCIe SSD, it has sold out worldwide for the second month in a row.  This is something not seen in the SSD industry these days but we have been saying for some time that there was a definite demand for PCIe SSDs; Mushkin listened and then some.

Walking away with our Editor’s Choice Award, the Mushkin Scorpion Deluxe PCIe is the single most powerful storage medium available to, not only the consumer, but also media professionals needing the speed to manipulate and transfer terabytes of media on a daily basis.  Mushkin did things right in the build of this PCIe SSD and, not only is it’s LSI SandForce Driven architecture capable of speeds up to 2GB/s, but also, pricing to reach these incredible speeds starts at an incredibly low $559 for the 240GB capacity.  A price/performance knockout like this hasn’t been seen since the OCZ Revo 3×2 release several years back.

Proving true to its specifications, the Scorpion Deluxe not only reached performance of 2.1GB/s read and 1.9GB/s write, but also, retained its performance in our grueling steady state testing with speeds of 1.9GB/s read and 1.6GB/s write with over 100K IOPS.  Imagine being able to transfer 25GB of video files in just over a minute flat and at a price that won’t break your pocketbook.  Add to that the fact that Mushkin included capacities of 240, 480, 960GB and 1920 capacities, along with a 3 year warranty, and the Scorpion Deluxe has just filled a void in the SSD market that many overlooked.

“We’re extremely excited to see how well-received the Scorpion Deluxe is. We felt very confident with the design and making of this product, and we’re proud to share it with our consumer base. The Scorpion Deluxe is representative of how Mushkin continues to strive to meet and exceed the expectations of our diverse and unique users,” said Brian Flood, Director of Product Development  at Mushkin, Inc.

“The Scorpion Deluxe PCIe is a strong component that complements any system design, whether you are composing your own applications or generating visual effects, and so on. This is why one of our top priorities at the moment is to get more Scorpion Deluxe cards back into the marketplace.” said Nicolas Villalobos, Director of Global Marketing  at Mushkin, Inc.

Rebadged

We have no doubt that this will result in a flurry of activity by other manufacturers, but for now, Mushkin has sole control and is fighting to keep up with demand.  Keep an eye out and your fingers crossed for the Mushkin Scorpion Deluxe in our included links and, by all means, throw a comment in if you are lucky enough to snag one!

Purchased 240GB version, easy installation, and it worked just great !!!! I am using it for Solidworks, opening large assemblies, saving to edrawings, multiple projects, no more pain, super large assemblies perform great, amazing value. One small issue: It stopped working after 2 days, not showing up in Bios, not in Windows, tried on another machine same problem, just dead. I guess i will see how Mushkin customer support works. Overall product is amazing, but i wish it would work longer.
