1 out of 5 eggsfailed after 18 months poor customer support

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

Pros: Worked for 18 months.

Cons: Failed after 18 months. Customer support puts you on hold indefinitely with really painful music that hurts you ears so you have to hang up.
. Tech support tells you to call Customer support.

Sent email and was told to call customer support or respond to the email . The email address is a "no reply" box so it gets bounced back

Called CS was put on hold again for 30 min so far.

1 out of 5 eggsNot a reliable drive

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

Pros: Fast drive when its new and fresh.

Cons: Die unexpectedly when SMART utility shows only 2 reallocated sectors with bandwith of 100. SSD is totaly dead. Even BIOS can't see the connected drive.

Other Thoughts: The first indication of SSD to die is errors during copy of large files. When You see such erros You have couple of days to act otherwise all data is lost forever.

1 out of 5 eggsNEVER AGAIN!

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

Pros: Price

Cons: All are failing - one after the other. Ordered a bunch of them for our computer store. Worst product we ever bought. Even the replacement they sent are failing. Not sure what to do with a MUSHKIN product. We wanted to use their ram but are afraid to start an other ordeal.

Other Thoughts: MUSHKIN should check their quality control or they will ruin their name!

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
