    Great review. I just picked up a 1TB Reactor and couldn’t be happier.

    One bit of error: In the final thoughts you state: “It’s also worth noting that all Muskin’s SSDs are assembled in the US which is something that you’d think would increase the costs over those assembled overseas at cheaper rates, but that’s not the case.”

    This may have been the case in the past but the drive clearly states: “Hecho en Mexico” – Translated from Spanish: Made in Mexico. The company website only states the products are: “Engineered in the USA.” Now this could explain why the earliest reviews of the Reactor had a green PCB and used Micron NAND and a Samsung DRAM vs. blue PCB, Sandisk NAND and Nanya DRAM in this review.

    Thanks
