  • newegg 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.
  • newegg 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.
  • newegg 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.
  • newegg 2.5" to 3.5" Adapter Included The Chronos Series features a standard 2.5-inch form factor for compatibility with notebooks and select desktops. A 2.5-inch to 3.5-inch mounting bracket is included with the SSD for compatibility with standard hard drive mounting.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for gaming

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

Pros: Mushkin really makes the best SSDs and low-latency RAM to suit your gaming needs. After purchasing this SSD, I am always one of the first to load into a map on Battlefield 4. The read/write speeds are fantastic. I've owned this SSD for months and have not had a stability issue with it at all.

Cons: None at all.

Other Thoughts: Of all the SSDs out there, I would say buy this one if you're a gamer.

3 out of 5 eggsSata Ports not alligned

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

Pros: 1. It works
2. It seems to be slightly faster than the 120GB Sata II Gskill SSD that it replaced. (In a sata II slot)
3. It would be a great drive for a desktop. It even came with a mounting bracket. Not so great for a laptop (see cons)

Cons: Only one con that I can tell. the sata conections are not aligned correctly they are non-standard. (only about 1mm off no big-deal if you are using for a desktop. However I am using it in a laptop.
The first indication that their was a problem was that I could not fit it into my external 2.5" enclosure. I was connecting it to my pc via usb to clone the 120GB ssd that it was replacing. not a big deal I simply left the drive out of the enclosure with the wires hooked up and cloned it.

Then when it came to installing the drive into the laptop the sata connections did not line up. my first thought was to return the drive and buy another Gskill ssd. But I noticed some plastic spacers on the laptop that were keeping the drive from sliding over. I was able to shave these off and get the drive to fit.

Mushkin needs to make sure that their sata connections are in the standard position most people are not going to be willing to modify their laptop to fit the drive.

Other Thoughts: It would be 5 stars in a desktop

1 out of 5 eggssad

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

Pros: fast boot, that is the only pro.

Cons: sloooow writing to disc. a normal mechanical hard drive is faster then this.

Other Thoughts: i have owned numerous ssd's from adata, corsair, pny, kingston and intel. i have had no issues whatsoever with any of them and all performed well.

not so with this drive...as i said, it boots fast like all ssd's, but writing to this ssd is slow as molasses. installing an operating system is pure torture. i would NOT recommend this ssd.

i even returned the first one for a replacement and it performed exactly the same: SLOOOW

1 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for

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

Pros: It's cheap and will work until you actually put data on it

Cons: This is by far the worst SSD i have ever purchased. Working in a computer repair/build shop I see a lot of drives come and go ant this is by far the worst.

I ordered about 6 of them over a period of a year or so and FOUR...FOUR have failed. And EVEN THE ONE THE RMA PEOPLE SENT TO REPLACE IT FAILED.

They must have the lowest inspection period of drives ever.

Wishing there was a rating lower than one.

Other Thoughts: Spend the extra $10 and get something else (avoid OCZ as well)

5 out of 5 eggsFast on the Cheap in the US?!

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

Pros: This is a US made product... and its fast while being affordable.

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: The device comes with a 2.5" to 3.5" Bracket. And the SSD itself is quite attractive.

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

1 out of 5 eggsnot so good

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

Pros: cheap

Cons: freezes after 1 hour. occasionally bsod as well. This seems to be a common theme from the other reviews. I believe the drive has weak firmware because is seems to work with some machines, and not others. maybe it's a drvier issue?

Other Thoughts: not worth the hassel.
