At this point I think most of us have the SandForce consumer SF-1200 controllers performance numbers down by heart. They play like a song from high school that when you hear on the radio you sing to: 285MB/s read, 275MB/s write speeds or the absolute limit of the SATA II interface, whichever is lower for your motherboard. I might not be able to make a catchy jingle out of it but when using these drives you will get that same giddy feeling.

 

As we mentioned in the introduction, Mushkin is currently sitting very pretty with their pricing. Our Callisto Deluxe 120GB sample that we are looking at today is available at Newegg at the time of writing for 299.99. That price makes it one of the lowest cost consumer SandForce SSDs on the market; even the ones that don't uses the high IOPS programming. Not to sound like an infomercial announcer, but if you buy now Mushkin has dropped the price from $344.99 down to just $289.99.

 

To add more value to the Callisto Deluxe package, Mushkin includes a 3 year warranty, 2.5 to 3.5" desktop mounting adapter and of course the Deluxe model also includes the 4K 50,000 IOPS programming that will add bragging rights to your forum signature.

 

Let's take a look at the Mushkin Enhanced Callisto Deluxe 120GB SSD.
