Positioned at the intersection of performance and value, Chronos SSDs provide next-generation SSD responsiveness by utilizing asynchronous NAND Flash technology. Say goodbye to rotational hard drive sluggishness by adding a Chronos SSD to your system today!

• 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.

• 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. With no moving parts, SSDs provide peace of mind with their superior durability and reliability. Chronos series SSDs work in perfect harmony with next generation platforms and operating systems to deliver the ultimate storage solution.

• TRIM SUPPORT
The Chronos Series SSDs offer native TRIM support featured in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. Designed to maintain the performance of SSD at an optimal level over the lifetime of the drive, TRIM functions by actively deleting invalid data from the SSD’s memory cells to ensure that write operations perform at full speed. Since a memory block must be erased before it can be re-programmed, TRIM improves performance by pro-actively erasing pages containing invalid data, allowing the SSD to write new data without first having to perform a time-consuming erase command.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed after 8 months

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

Pros: -Fast
-Good value on paper
-Includes 2.5" to 3.5" adapter

Cons: -Failed after 8 months of light use
-Screw holes poorly drilled
-Uses a lot more power than comparable SSD's

Other Thoughts: Some time ago, Mushkin said that they were sending me a replacement. That was some time ago. They also don't seem like they're going to refund what I paid to ship and insure the device for warranty service which is common these days, but irritating nonetheless.

Would I buy another Mushkin SSD? Probably not, given the availability of more competitive options with better reputations.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed after 7 months

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

Pros: It worked for 7 months

Cons: It died after 7 months

Other Thoughts: Of all the brands of SSD's I have purchased for my business (and I have purchased many) this is the only failure I have had. Unfortunately the computer it was in was 1600 miles away. It cost me shipping both ways. Baaa.....

5 out of 5 eggsChronos impresses as always

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

Pros: Fast I/O and cheap for the space.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I've used Chronos series SSDs in over 20 builds and they haven't disappointed. Just cloned a 120GB SSD to this and extended the volume and voila. Startup time is around 10 seconds with a derpy MSI bios. Very satisfied.

2 out of 5 eggsExtremely fast...and then fast to failure.

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

Pros: Fast boot ups. Quick load times.

Cons: There were none until it stopped working.

Other Thoughts: I logged about 5 hours on this SSD and then had to leave the state on business for 3 weeks. When I came back it still ran perfect...until the day after when I woke to find, "Cannot find bootable devide". I cleaned off the connections and reconnected the cables, but I got the same response. Luckily I didn't lose any data since it was so new. So, now I've owned it for 36 days altogether, and outside Newegg's 30-day return window. Currently contacting Mushkin since it's still covered under the manufacturer warranty.

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

Pros: Bought this to extend my VMware workstation environment out from my other 2 SSDs. Excellent price and drive performs exactly as I need it to for a VM lab environment. Cheaper than all other SSDs at regular price!

Cons: None really. Just make sure you have a 3.5 to 2.5 drive bay adapter if you are putting it in a desktop computer.

1 out of 5 eggsSloooow

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

Pros: None

Cons: Slow, this thing got spanked by a Hitachi simple drive mini. The highest transfer rate that I saw was only 95mbs/sec.
Back this thing goes. I would rather have a better non-ssd than this.

Other Thoughts: Waste of time.
