Mushkin has been around for 18yrs, and I've yet to read a 3rd party review saying any of their products are bad. Personally use their DDR2 RAM and love it.
The reasoning behind buying Mushkin is simple, they make quality products at a competitive price.
I'm not sure which RAM companies are more "known an reliable" but you can get slower Corsair XMS or taller G.Skill options for $240 if it makes you feel better (link
The SSD I understand not knowing Mushkin made them, they came late to the game, which gave them the benefit of learning from other's mistakes.
Hardware Secrets summed it up pretty well (link
The Mushkin Chronos drive exhibited very good performance in our tests but ended up coming in slightly behind the OCZ Vertex 3
But again, if you're more comfortable with an OCZ, Crucial, Intel, etc... SSD then go for it, just giving my opinion on the best bang for your buck.
