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:

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

Pros: Running a pair in RAID 1 on an ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z mobo. No real issues thus far and speed reduction from the RAID 1 is virtually unnoticeable. Great SSD for the price.

Cons: None so far.

4 out of 5 eggsNot as good as I was hoping

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

Pros: Excellent performance. The performance holds up in testing and in real world gaming and development.

Cons: First drive was a dud. RMA'd with Mushkin and the second drive is better, but still temperamental. Knocking off 1 egg for the first failed drive and the temperament of the second drive.

Note: Mushkin support was easy to work with and provided an RMA with no hassle.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to put in a new ASUS ROG laptop, and never used the HDD that came with the laptop. I ran a clean Windows 8.1 install. I kept having random BSODs where none of my disks would detect on reboot. Finally traced it to this SSD. The SSD would also not detect a valid firmware update. Mushkin support worked with me and provided a hassle-free RMA

However, I still have intermittent issues where the BIOS won't detect the SSD on a soft reboot. I am no longer having the random BSODs, and I don't reboot very often, so this is not a big issue for me.

It's possible that the issue is an incompatibility with the BIOS on my laptop or a driver running the SATA array. Using this SSD in different hardware may behave differently.

Performance is rock solid.

Manufacturer Response:
