5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Drive, Awesome Company!

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos Deluxe MKNSSDCR240GB-DX 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This drive is very fast, especially for the price! Also Mushkin has the best customer service I've ever experienced!

Cons: None come to mind, except that drive failed after 6 months. However, their customer support team did an outstanding job of making things right!

Other Thoughts: Not only was I blown away by this drives speed, but when the drive failed after six months, the Mushkin team really came through. I requested an RMA on Monday, July 21st. They responded within an hour with the info I needed to get it back to them. I had to pay $5.60 for priority mail shipping but I sent the drive on Tuesday and received my replacement that same Saturday! Not only that, but they provided me with a 480GB drive instead of the 240GB I originally had purchased! Incredibly company, and I urge you all to give Mushkin a try!

5 out of 5 eggsSimply Great!!!

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos Deluxe MKNSSDCR240GB-DX 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: -Fast, very fast!!!
-Boots windows 7 in about 8-10 seconds
-I can open multiple programs with near instant speed
-Makes my overall system feel much faster.
-Even with a lot of programs to load on startup, the desktop loads very quickly, virtually no waiting time.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I've had this drive since last October (2013) and have had no problems whatsoever. The online reviews for this drive were very good and the user reviews were good as well as well. I've always gone with Mushkin for RAM and I thought, why not for SSDs as well. I was not disappointed :)

I've had good experience with Mushkin's customer service in the past (2007) when I had a bad stick of RAM. They tested the sticks, while sending me updates about them, and sent me a brand new pair the following week. I hope that their customer quality has remained the same.

I highly recommend this Solid State Drive both for its price and performance.

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos Deluxe MKNSSDCR240GB-DX 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: cheap price

Cons: causes windows 8 to crash over and over. Runes for a while then freezes

Other Thoughts: the drive does well for 20 or so hours and the computer freezes when i install another drive no problems. I hope it is not too late to RMA to newegg have been told customer support is terrible

1 out of 5 eggsDied during OS install

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos Deluxe MKNSSDCR240GB-DX 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Price for the space is a good value.

Cons: This drive died while I was installing Windows 7 on it. Created an unknown error and now it is not recognizable on any computer.

Other Thoughts: I contacted Mushkin customer support, but they could not do anything because I received it as a gift. I had another Mushkin SSD which also recently died. At least that one was lasted for 3 years, but this is not a brand I would consider buying from again.

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos Deluxe MKNSSDCR240GB-DX 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I have owned this drive for over a year and 1/2. In that time I have never had any issues whatsoever. Fast and rock solid, even after pounding the drive with numerous games installs and video encodes for the past 18 months.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsFast higher end SSD

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos Deluxe MKNSSDCR240GB-DX 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: FAST! Benchmarked as one of the higher end solid state drives. Fit perfect in my laptop with hdd cage the laptop. Increased my battery life. Boots my laptop in 10sec launches open office in two seconds.

Cons: I think it maybe a little slower on the write speed but you probably would never notice it.

Other Thoughts: I would love to give you a benchmark but this will probably be more helpful to those with the older SATA interface. I'm running SATA II which means I have a lower throughput. I know what you are thinking why put a SSD on a slower interface. Well, I don't want to buy a new laptop... yet. Now here is the kicker... Because most read/writes are small bits of data you will notice a huge performance increase even though you have a slower interface. Sequential rates mean NOTHING to an SSD in real-world use you really want to look at the IOPS. Because even though my Core 2 laptop has SATA 2 it will boot in under ten seconds and launch applications in an instant. Honestly this SSD upgrade with saving me two years on this laptop will allow me to wait until tech is even better before finally buying a new one. Four year old laptop running blazingly fast for $150 you bet I'll pay $12.50 a month for a year for this...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Company

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos Deluxe MKNSSDCR240GB-DX 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Great price for performance. This drive lasted me 2 years then the SandForce Controller started to go. This is not Mushkin's fault, as SandForce is manufactured by a 3rd party. Overall the drive is screaming fast and I had no issues.

Cons: SandForce. Time for SSDs to get new technology. This applies to all SSDs with SandForce Controllers.

Other Thoughts: Mushkin is great. When the drive started to fail to boot after 2 years, they had no problem providing me with a replacement. Painless process and they shipped me the drive up-front with a simple hold on my credit card. Be warned on ALL SSD drives, they will fail. They can only read/write so many times (but still have better lifespan than HDD!). Do yourself a favor and setup a RAID or backups and simply use SSD for your OS and primary applications.

5 out of 5 eggsA True Workhorse

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos Deluxe MKNSSDCR240GB-DX 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: These units have the Toshiba 32nm Toggle NAND and Sandforce 2281 controllers. That's the same as the OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS SSDs. The P/E rating is 5000 cycles. I use these in a RAID 0 set with great results.

Cons: Not as fast as the newer TLC SSDs but this one does not rely on tricky caching schemes to boost performance. These will take a good pounding without any fading.

Other Thoughts: Not many models left with the 32nm NAND. Grab 'em now.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos Deluxe MKNSSDCR240GB-DX 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Shipped fast. Runs great. No problems. Great price.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have bought 3 different brands of SSDs in the last year. Performance was indifferent between the three (All greater 500 MB/s), all three being used for research applications. The Mushkin has been the best for the price.
