1 out of 5 eggsFail, No RMA

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 2.5" 240GB SATA III 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDCR240GB-7

Pros: I wouldn't but from them again

Cons: I tried twice to get an RMA from their Website. I bought 2 of these and they are only 1.5 years old. They have not sent an RMA

Other Thoughts: RMA is ignored. The "three year warranty" is a mirage.

1 out of 5 eggsLess than a year and my OS drive will not boot up

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 2.5" 240GB SATA III 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDCR240GB-7

Pros: It worked for about 9 months.

Cons: 9 Months was just long enough for a woman to make a baby, and is also just the life of this drive.
Now it will not even show up in my computer, an external drive adapter, nothing!
This was my main OS drive for my server, so this thing dying is a HUGE inconvenience!

4 out of 5 eggsNot as advertised speeds but excellent customer service!

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 2.5" 240GB SATA III 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDCR240GB-7

Pros: I used both crystalmark and ATTO. Same speeds on both!

I own a total of 6 ssd's
2 from mushkin and the rest from assorted companies, all 240GB in size, all with the same iops and read/write speeds

These drives are fast, but nowhere near the advertised speeds.

I tried RAID 0 with them as well and there was no speed increase... WHAT?!??!

Anyway I only get 380MBps read and 200 write both by themselves and RAID 0.

I tried with a dedicated RAID controller and software raid.

I've had them for such a long time that there warranty is up so there isn't anything I can do.

It just irks me that I'm not getting near 1gb read and write when in raid 0 or even the speed they are supposed to get on their own

Or even if I got 800mb read and 400 write I would be happy!
-------

Anyway now the actual pros
Speed - yes it is fast, not as fast as displayed, but yeah still nice
Cost - Very low cost for great performance and reliability!

Cons: Speed - The double edged sword I talked about. It is fast, but not as fast as it is supposed to be.

Other Thoughts: So yeah. I've searched around for a fix
Both drives are at the latest firmware
I'm running windows 10 pro
i5 4670k
I also have a raid card that wasnt able to squeeze any benefits from the drives
My mobo has all SATA 3 ports, im using sata 3 cables

My system is not the issue, it is the drives.

I've searched for a fix to no avail.

If anyone knows a fix please let me know!!! michaelhpettit at gmail

1 out of 5 eggsDied in less than a week....

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 2.5" 240GB SATA III 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDCR240GB-7

Pros: ....

Cons: -Drive died, along with three others, slowly over the first six months of ownership.

Other Thoughts: -I would not suggest this particular model. Failure rate is absurd.

3 out of 5 eggsTook 2 to get 1 good one

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 2.5" 240GB SATA III 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDCR240GB-7

Pros: Newegg made replacing the first bad drive easy.
Once the second drive was installed, it worked as expected.

Cons: First drive was defective. BIOS would not recognize the drive in AHCI mode, but did in IDE mode. However, Windows could not format the drive in IDE mode, so the OS would not install.

Other Thoughts: I saw all the negative reviews and thought the drive could not be that bad, and the price was great, so I decided to go for it. I guess you get what you pay for. The first drive was not completely dead, but unusable. It would not work with AHCI, and IDE mode would get me to the point where Windows was formatting the drive in preparation for OS installation, and would then fail. I spent about 8 hours troubleshooting with different computers and then trying to upgrade the firmware, but no go. So, I returned the drive to Newegg ( an easy process that did not cost anything ), and then got the replacement drive 1 week later. I put it in and it worked as expected, and has been OK since. This drive was only used for an offsite backup development server, so I was not down any working time, but it was frustrating to have all but 1 piece of the computer ready, and have to wait a week for the replacement drive.

I have used a number of Mushkin drives in the past and they have all worked out of the box and are still running fine today. Maybe this was just a bad model or was build with a batch of bad parts.

1 out of 5 eggsAnother dead Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 2.5" 240GB SATA III 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDCR240GB-7

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 2.5" 240GB SATA III 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDCR240GB-7

Pros: Easy setup, Fast, Reliable while it worked.

Cons: Started seeing bad sectors after one month of low use. Suddenly died in about 5 months - nothing. Looks hopeless. Due to instruction from Sue at Mushkin, I emailed a detailed report and asked for RMA - I have not heard anything back after 30 days so far. Mushkin Sue added "I apologize for the issue that you’re having with our 240GB Chronos 7mm SSD. Our customer and technical support are here to assist you with troubleshooting your issue. If we cannot find a resolution, we will be more than happy to replace your drive."

1 out of 5 eggsTotally failed after 9 months

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 2.5" 240GB SATA III 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDCR240GB-7

Pros: Emailed company and they are replacing the HD but have not received a new one yet so hopefully they follow through. Could not return through Newegg. But Mushkin was backing their warranty

Cons: Failed after 9 months of use. Could not recover anything, all gone PC could not even find HD, Could not locate HD to boot from, took it out and had the HD tested, All info gone. Could not recover anything, first experience with SSD and they said once they fail that is it. But after 9 months, good thing I back up all important info, lesson learned back up every week.

Other Thoughts: Would not buy this again, had a 500G Samsung 850 that I used to store games and other items. Had to wipe that and spend a day getting back up and running. Spend the few extra 10 buck and get a better brand name.

1 out of 5 eggsFast but not reliable

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 2.5" 240GB SATA III 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDCR240GB-7

Pros: Very fast!
Customer support very good!

Cons: First one lasted three weeks.
Second one lasted two weeks.
Strike three - Third one lasted six months.

Other Thoughts: No more. I'm done buying Mushkin. Customer service is great about sending you a new one but I can't keep replacing my SSD every 2 weeks to 6 months.
