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 eggsTERRIBLE-DO NOT PURCHASE

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

Pros: fast temporarily before it DIES. Each time it died within 3-6 months.

Cons: This drive is atrocious. I dont know where to begin. But what I will tell you right now is that the controller just keeps dying on this thing. Since I put it in my wifes laptop, she lost many many files as this thing died before a backup could even be performed. When reaching out to their support, they instantly recognized the issue and simply offered a replacement without offering at all to help in anyway recover data. I think they know something we dont. This drive is unrecoverable and dies left and right. BTW replacement died as well after 6 months.

Other Thoughts: When attempting to recover files the drive shows up as a 2 terabyte Drive that cannot be initialized or accessed except to look at the non existent layout through disk management.

2 out of 5 eggsHigh failure rate

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

Pros: Fast drives. Inexpensive. Easy to install.

Cons: We've ordered about 10-15 muskin drives over the last 6 months and so far 3 of them have failed and needed to be RMA'ed

Other Thoughts: I can't recommend this manufacturer at this time.

The RMA process was very quick and easy and Mushkin was great to work with, but their drive failure rate is not acceptable for business machines.

Manufacturer Response:

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

Pros: Running a pair in RAID 1 on an ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z mobo. No real issues thus far and speed reduction from the RAID 1 is virtually unnoticeable. Great SSD for the price.

Cons: None so far.

4 out of 5 eggsNot as good as I was hoping

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

Pros: Excellent performance. The performance holds up in testing and in real world gaming and development.

Cons: First drive was a dud. RMA'd with Mushkin and the second drive is better, but still temperamental. Knocking off 1 egg for the first failed drive and the temperament of the second drive.

Note: Mushkin support was easy to work with and provided an RMA with no hassle.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to put in a new ASUS ROG laptop, and never used the HDD that came with the laptop. I ran a clean Windows 8.1 install. I kept having random BSODs where none of my disks would detect on reboot. Finally traced it to this SSD. The SSD would also not detect a valid firmware update. Mushkin support worked with me and provided a hassle-free RMA

However, I still have intermittent issues where the BIOS won't detect the SSD on a soft reboot. I am no longer having the random BSODs, and I don't reboot very often, so this is not a big issue for me.

It's possible that the issue is an incompatibility with the BIOS on my laptop or a driver running the SATA array. Using this SSD in different hardware may behave differently.

Performance is rock solid.

5 out of 5 eggsKeeps on Ticking

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

Pros: I've had this drive for almost 18 months and it is still performing like it did when I purchased it. I also purchased the 120GB & 480GB models for my home PC and as a second drive for my work laptop respectively. I'm an IT consultant and I use my laptop very heavily. I run multiple virtual machines, Outlook is open 100% of the time, etc. I've never had an issue with these drives so far. Looking to purchase a few more for other uses.

Cons: Nada. It doesn't look like garbage collection or heavily overwritten blocks are causing issues with these drives (as is the case with most flash). I'm very pleased with these.

Other Thoughts: There are so many poor reviews for these drives, but it looks like Mushkin support is looking to make things right. I would love to know what people thought of Mushkin's support and if they were of any help in solving the problems people are reporting with these devices.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

Thank you for choosing Mushkin.
We appreciate your feedback and support.

All of our products undergo 100% testing to ensure quality and reliability however all electronic components do face a small percentage of failure.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT

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

Pros: cheap product, the few that work well improved the speed of our computers. Not better then any other SSD I used.

Cons: We bought 10 of these drives for upgrades in the office. on the first week 1 drive malfunction, we send for replacement. The new drive arrived and was also malfunction. at that point 2 other drives stooped working (Issue is the computer cannot find the drive when booting).
I called Mushkin back and they said there is nothing they can do but keep replacing the damaged ones. In the process of replacing the hard drives for our employees the biggest expense is paying IT to copy the old drives to the new ones and install the new drives. having 4 bad drives out of 11 is a 365 failure. I insisted they will find another solution rather then keep replacing one defected drive for another. after a week they come out with a new firmware for the drives which my IT had to come back to install (another 2 hours pay) still one of the drives would not work we couldn't even see that one on the system so couldn't install the new firmware. I contacted Mushkin again asking to return the product and asking for some kind of compensation for all the wasted IT hours. their reply was as before we can only replace the drive, and no compensation for any of our problems. this is a bad customer service.

Other Thoughts: this product has very high failing rate and even worse customer service. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

I understand your frustration regarding this matter. I apologize your experience with our 240GB Chronos 7mm SSD wasn't completely satisfactory. Our lead technician and customer support expediated your case and replacement order. Our warranty doesn't cover factors outside of the product itself.

Thank you for choosing Mushkin.
We appreciate your feedback and support.

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't Work in Gigabyte P35V2 Laptop

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

Pros: This drive is reasonably priced.

Cons: I spent more than a month t-shooting a Gigabyte P35v2 laptop only to find out the problem was this SSD. When it was plugged in the 1TB HGST HDD would dissapear in both Windows 8.1 and Mint 17.1. This might be a BIOS issue but once I replaced it with a new 730 series Intel SSD the problem went away. I have had this SSD in 3 different computers and the Sandforce F/W updater won't even recognize that this drive has a SandForce controller. The updater easily recognized an older Intel 530 series drive.

Other Thoughts: This may be a combination of both the Laptop and Mushkin BIOS/FW but I don't have the time to t-shoot problems like this with modern H/W. I am sticking with the Intel SSD's in the future.
