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: Slow, this thing got spanked by a Hitachi simple drive mini. The highest transfer rate that I saw was only 95mbs/sec.
Back this thing goes. I would rather have a better non-ssd than this.

Other Thoughts: Waste of time.

1 out of 5 eggsUnreliable

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

Pros: It WAS fast.

Cons: I purchased 6 of these drives. The last one just died. That's unacceptable for a 100% loss. 2 of the drives died with in 2 or 3 days. I returned all of the drives I ordered but the one that just died because it wasn't having any issues.

Other Thoughts: I also purchased 13 of the 120GB version around the same time. 1 of those just failed. I hope I don't have 12 more ticking time bombs.

5 out of 5 eggslove it

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

Pros: Good capacity/price. Best SSD I've had - I've had 4 others. It's really fast - scores 7.9 on WEI in Win 7 64 bit on a SATA II MB. About 2X as fast as my SATA II 60 GB OCZ. Noticeable improvement in overall boot time and performance. No BSODs.

Cons: Not cheap enough for high capacity use, No other issues.

Other Thoughts: can't wait till these are 1 TB for this cost.

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

Pros: Very fast, long rated life, and very good price. It's faster than some other brands I own.

Cons: none so far.

Other Thoughts: Makes a huge difference on an I7 PC, boots in about 12 seconds, all applications start up faster. Sorry I didn't get some before.

5 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: Excellent price point.
Running 2 of these in RAID 0 with a cheep PCI-e card. Write speed is 780 MB/s but the read speed is only 430 MB/s. I think it is the cheep RAID card that is giving we the slower read speed but it is a great improvement from my RAID 10 setup with 4 HDD's on SATA II. The great thing is that I installed a fresh O.S. (WIN 7) on this array and I still have everything on my previous version and can still access the data or boot to my old RAID 10 SATA II setup if I need to for any reason which is great because I have Cakewalk Sonar files that are on that drive and none are saved as standalone files.

Test rendering in After Effects I saw a great improvement in rendering time due to the increase in write speed. My processor is an i7 875K overclocked to 4.0Ghz and I'm getting a WEI score of 7.7 on this RAID 0 array and my processor with is my lowest overall score.

Cons: I have an extended boot time due to the PCI-e interface. It's just an older system and even with an onboard RAID configuration the boot time increases so it should be expected.

Other Thoughts: If your looking to upgrade an older system from SATA II to SATA III desiring better performance and don't want to spend more than you can justify than I recommend this SSD. I am connected 2 of these via PCI-e interface for a RAID 0 array. If your concerned with price point vs. performance these SSD's are giving me enough bang for my buck that I am satisfied.
