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.

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

Pros: none

Cons: it lasted about 14 mounths; this is no where near long enough; I would think a drive with a 3 year warenty should make it to the halfway point atleast.

1 out of 5 eggsDied

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

Pros: None

Cons: Died right after formatting it. Did not come with any manuals or instructions. Even the firmware update on the website does not work with this model and there is only one firmware update on the site so how are you supposed to update it? Very disappointed and sent for RMA.

Other Thoughts: Needs to include instructions to update firmware and firmware found on their site does not even work with this model!!

1 out of 5 eggsFailed after 3 months.

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

Pros: Worked good initially.

Cons: SMART error warning of imminent failure in both Windows 8 and Linux after 3 months. Just RMA'd, holding my breath as I see others here have had similar issues.

Other Thoughts: Really disjointed in this, was my first trip into the world of SATA III SSD's. I have already replaced with a HDD drive, don't know what I'll do with replacement.

1 out of 5 eggsAVOID AT ALL COSTS!

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

Pros: Works for a few months. Better back up all your data within that period!

Cons: Starts to get SMART drive failing messages after a few months with only light office workload. You'll probably get a shorter drive life if your workload is higher than document processing.
Tried to RMA with Mushkin. They want me to pay shipping to return their defective SSD and won't provide a replacement until I ship the defective one to them. Horrible customer service.

Other Thoughts: DO NOT BUY THIS DRIVE!

Manufacturer Response:

Hi, Tedy!

Thank you for choosing Mushkin.
We're sorry your experience with our product and RMA procedure was not a good one. We do hope to earn your business in the future!

2 out of 5 eggs16 months

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

Pros: Solid State boot speeds complimented the 8 core 4Ghz Gaming machine.

Cons: Daily Use in a gaming platform for 16 months then sudden death without warning. Thankfully the small foot print of 240GB meant the back ups were small. I used primarily for Boot drive, but in the future I will leave it for game installs.

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:

Hello Aaron,

Your feedback is appreciated and valued. I apologize that your experience with our 240GB Chronos 7mm SSD isn't completely satisfactory. I'm going back into your case and presenting your information to our engineering team about the issue you had along with your system model.

Thank you for choosing Mushkin.
