" However, its excellent performance and affordable price are what allow it to stand out. In our testing, the Mushkin catalyst increased our system performance by a considerable amount in almost every single test. We saw huge increases across the board, including a doubling of the overall storage score in PCMark 7. More importantly, however, a 50GB Catalyst SSD costs around $50-75, a near unheard-of price for solid state drives. This is truly a great product."
