For many people, replacing a hard drive in a notebook requires them to take it to an expert so the data can be migrated to the new drive. Therefore, speeding up a hard drive to an SSD, can be a rather cumbersome and daunting process. The Mushkin Atlas 30GB mSATA solid state drive is one option that doesn't require a whole drive replacement. It is an SSD in a different form factor (mSATA as opposed to the more tarditional 2.5" SATA form factor) that can be used either as a true SSD, or as a cache drive. A cache drive allows frequently used data or applications to be moved to it which causes them to be accessible much faster.

The remainder of the above listed specifications were taken from the 60GB model's product page, and each of the specific drives has a slightly different read and write speed. At the time of this review, there is no page for the 30GB model. When an official page for the 30GB model becomes available, we will update the review.
