    Got the Mushkin (not Atlas) for 162$ and i'm having second thoughts. Should I get the Plextor for 185$ instead?

    I searched for that part number you gave, and it came up as an Atlas. Verifying on Mushkin's web site, ALL of their mSATA drives are called Atlas. Now they have their Deluxe, Value and "vanilla" series. 240GB capacity would mean Deluxe or "vanilla" and would be same part number, but with -DX appended at the end for the Deluxe model, so I'm guessing you have the "vanilla." No worries, as I checked specs and they are identical. They look pretty typical of decent performing Sandforce SF2281 controller SSDs. I'd stick with it and pocket the $23.
