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 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.

1 out of 5 eggs2 out of 6 Dead

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

Pros: Good speed vs. cost ratio. Easy to work with RMA dept. 3 yr warranty.

Cons: 1/3rd of them have died so far.

Other Thoughts: I bought 6 of these for a RAID 5 with one spare. The speed is great. I'm very glad I built a RAID, because these went in to a HOSO computer. IMHO, SSD technology is not reliable enough to run as a stand-alone drive. Only use them in a fault tolerant RAID.
Mobo: ASRock Z87 Extreme6
I gave 1 egg, because 1 out of 3 failure rate is to high.

Pros: It arrived quickly.

Cons: It was Dead On Arrival.

Other Thoughts: It took me a while to start this build so the 30 day window for swapping has passed. It will cost me to send it back and send out a new one.

1 out of 5 eggs

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

Pros: None.

Cons: I had purchased this over a month ago. I never received the item in the box. I requested a refund. It's been over a month, and they still haven't given it to me. They keep telling me to ship them the SSD back first. How can I do that when I never received it. I have never had such a horrible experience on Newegg. This is just ridiculous. Looks like I'm going to have to visit my bank and deal with it that way.

Other Thoughts: I would suggest using any other site to purchase things from unless you want this to happen to you.

Every one with the exception of the Gigabyte & 1 Asus board running in a SATA III Raid Strip 0 & these drives literally kill it! Pulling down solid over 1GB's+ a second sequentially Read & Write!!! Wicked quick, booting into W7 64, smoking every other machine I've ever seen.
