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.

5 out of 5 eggsKeeps on Ticking

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

Pros: I've had this drive for almost 18 months and it is still performing like it did when I purchased it. I also purchased the 120GB & 480GB models for my home PC and as a second drive for my work laptop respectively. I'm an IT consultant and I use my laptop very heavily. I run multiple virtual machines, Outlook is open 100% of the time, etc. I've never had an issue with these drives so far. Looking to purchase a few more for other uses.

Cons: Nada. It doesn't look like garbage collection or heavily overwritten blocks are causing issues with these drives (as is the case with most flash). I'm very pleased with these.

Other Thoughts: There are so many poor reviews for these drives, but it looks like Mushkin support is looking to make things right. I would love to know what people thought of Mushkin's support and if they were of any help in solving the problems people are reporting with these devices.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT

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

Pros: cheap product, the few that work well improved the speed of our computers. Not better then any other SSD I used.

Cons: We bought 10 of these drives for upgrades in the office. on the first week 1 drive malfunction, we send for replacement. The new drive arrived and was also malfunction. at that point 2 other drives stooped working (Issue is the computer cannot find the drive when booting).
I called Mushkin back and they said there is nothing they can do but keep replacing the damaged ones. In the process of replacing the hard drives for our employees the biggest expense is paying IT to copy the old drives to the new ones and install the new drives. having 4 bad drives out of 11 is a 365 failure. I insisted they will find another solution rather then keep replacing one defected drive for another. after a week they come out with a new firmware for the drives which my IT had to come back to install (another 2 hours pay) still one of the drives would not work we couldn't even see that one on the system so couldn't install the new firmware. I contacted Mushkin again asking to return the product and asking for some kind of compensation for all the wasted IT hours. their reply was as before we can only replace the drive, and no compensation for any of our problems. this is a bad customer service.

Other Thoughts: this product has very high failing rate and even worse customer service. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't Work in Gigabyte P35V2 Laptop

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

Pros: This drive is reasonably priced.

Cons: I spent more than a month t-shooting a Gigabyte P35v2 laptop only to find out the problem was this SSD. When it was plugged in the 1TB HGST HDD would dissapear in both Windows 8.1 and Mint 17.1. This might be a BIOS issue but once I replaced it with a new 730 series Intel SSD the problem went away. I have had this SSD in 3 different computers and the Sandforce F/W updater won't even recognize that this drive has a SandForce controller. The updater easily recognized an older Intel 530 series drive.

Other Thoughts: This may be a combination of both the Laptop and Mushkin BIOS/FW but I don't have the time to t-shoot problems like this with modern H/W. I am sticking with the Intel SSD's in the future.

1 out of 5 eggs2 out of 6 Dead

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

Pros: Good speed vs. cost ratio. Easy to work with RMA dept. 3 yr warranty.

Cons: 1/3rd of them have died so far.

Other Thoughts: I bought 6 of these for a RAID 5 with one spare. The speed is great. I'm very glad I built a RAID, because these went in to a HOSO computer. IMHO, SSD technology is not reliable enough to run as a stand-alone drive. Only use them in a fault tolerant RAID.
Mobo: ASRock Z87 Extreme6
I gave 1 egg, because 1 out of 3 failure rate is to high.

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

Pros: It arrived quickly.

Cons: It was Dead On Arrival.

Other Thoughts: It took me a while to start this build so the 30 day window for swapping has passed. It will cost me to send it back and send out a new one.
