  • newegg Industry-leading Performance Driven by the second generation of SandForce SSD controller (SF-2281), the Chronos Series is designed and built to unleash the full potential of the 6Gbps SATA III interface. The Chronos pushes the limits in both sequential and random data transfer rates, significantly improving your productivity, gaming, multimedia, and overall computing experience.
  • newegg A Superior PC Experience In addition to maximum performance, a Chronos SSD upgrade promotes cooler, quieter, and more energy efficient conditions compared to traditional mechanical hard drives.

1 out of 5 eggssad

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

Pros: fast boot, that is the only pro.

Cons: sloooow writing to disc. a normal mechanical hard drive is faster then this.

Other Thoughts: i have owned numerous ssd's from adata, corsair, pny, kingston and intel. i have had no issues whatsoever with any of them and all performed well.

not so with this drive...as i said, it boots fast like all ssd's, but writing to this ssd is slow as molasses. installing an operating system is pure torture. i would NOT recommend this ssd.

i even returned the first one for a replacement and it performed exactly the same: SLOOOW

1 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for

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

Pros: It's cheap and will work until you actually put data on it

Cons: This is by far the worst SSD i have ever purchased. Working in a computer repair/build shop I see a lot of drives come and go ant this is by far the worst.

I ordered about 6 of them over a period of a year or so and FOUR...FOUR have failed. And EVEN THE ONE THE RMA PEOPLE SENT TO REPLACE IT FAILED.

They must have the lowest inspection period of drives ever.

Wishing there was a rating lower than one.

Other Thoughts: Spend the extra $10 and get something else (avoid OCZ as well)

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

Pros: This is a US made product... and its fast while being affordable.

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: The device comes with a 2.5" to 3.5" Bracket. And the SSD itself is quite attractive.

1 out of 5 eggsnot so good

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

Pros: cheap

Cons: freezes after 1 hour. occasionally bsod as well. This seems to be a common theme from the other reviews. I believe the drive has weak firmware because is seems to work with some machines, and not others. maybe it's a drvier issue?

Other Thoughts: not worth the hassel.

5 out of 5 eggsbudget speed

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

Pros: this ssd brought my pc to a new standard. I don't know how I've dealt with mechanical hdds for so long after this. I wanted to get faster load times and this ssd did it for me. I'm not picky about my read write speeds. other ssd drives offer great read write speeds for a price. if you're on a budget and want to get away from mechanical hd's mushkin is where you want to go. it even came with a mounting plate. they're to ssd's as Toshiba is for televisions. or at least I like to think so. great price, and a get what you pay for read write speed. the upgrade from standard hd's was phenomenal for me on this drive and it hasn't failed ONCE in a year. I'm going to save this for a backup build and buy a bigger 480 drive from mushkin when the time comes. great drive, and awesome reliable speed. with this kind of pricing, I wouldn't go anywhere else but mushkin for my future ssd purchases.

Cons: none.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst experience I've had.

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

Pros: Fast drive when it worked.

Cons: I had the first drive from Mushkin for less than 3 weeks before it started to freeze multiple times a day without BSOD, and when it did BSOD, it was for NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM. I sent it back directly to mushkin, and they sent me another through their advanced RMA program. Within a month the second drive started having the same BSOD issue.

I have now put in a second RMA Ticket and have purchased a Kingston Hyper X SSD, which only a 20 bucks more expensive. Spend the extra twenty bucks.

The worst part about this ordeal is Mushkin will not let me return it directly, and it's been longer than 30 days from my original purchase, so Newegg will not let me return it.

Learn from my mistake, do not buy this hard drive.

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage

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

Pros: It was cheap.

Cons: My laptop would constantly freeze after migrating to this drive. Finally last night the system blue screened, rebooted and now the drive isn't even detected.
There are no drivers or utilities from Mushkin. No firmware updates for this drive either. It's like they slapped their name on a product, shipped it and forgot about it.

Other Thoughts: I bought this because of the price and because of the reputation mushkin used to have as an awesome memory company. The drive died 6 days outside of the refund window so now I'm stuck with RMA'ing it for another one. The drive and support are garbage.

1 out of 5 eggs2nd drive failure less than a year

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

Pros: cheap, 3 year warranty

Cons: I have 2 of these. 1 had failed immediately within days of installing it. NewEgg RMA'd it no problem. The second drive has now failed at 10 months of use (as a secondary drive I installed some games to). Not even heavy use.

Starting to worry about loosing my OS drive again. What a hassle. I may replace the first one given the track record.

Other Thoughts: 2 of 3 failed within a year. Not good

Their tech support was prompt and has given me an RMA to send the failed one back. Thankfully they have a 3 year warranty.
