  • 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.

1 out of 5 eggsDrive failed.

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR120GB 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Loaded fast before failing.

Cons: The drive failed in just a little over 2 years with very light use, SSD not being detected in bios. Life of the product was too short in my opinion. Did contact Mushkin through the website, sent copy of the purchase invoice, thinking they give a 3 year warranty, they did not respond.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsFast drive

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR120GB 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I wanted to get the least-expensive fast 120 GB SSD I could find for my money. I was not disappointed. This SSD gets 7.9 on the WEI (Windows Experience Index) and while that's not as accurate as CrystalDiskmark or some of the other performance measurement programs, seat of the pants says we're flying here, folks!

Cons: Note that Muskin seems to have two identical drives - note that one is 9.5mm in width and the other 7mm, important for those who may be putting it in a laptop or some other thickness-limited location

Other Thoughts: So far, so good. Time will tell.

2 out of 5 eggsAvoid

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR120GB 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Small form, shock proof

Cons: Died just like that! Speed not noticeable faster than SATA HDs. Low space. Expensive.

Other Thoughts: Nothing I've done will bring this thing back, still under warranty but not sending them an HD full of personal info.
Looked online and lots of people have same problem, in contrast I still have most of the plate HHDs I've ever bought, one died a month after I got it but gave me time to move my data.
Never Again!

1 out of 5 eggsDied as well-

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR120GB 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Worked for almost a year.

Cons: Had this drive for about a year.
Just died on me. Brought it to support center to see if anything was recoverable.
The controller went on it- so no go.

Lesson learned. Going forward will stick with companies that have been making memory for a bit longer- like Sandisk, Samsung, and Corsair.

5 out of 5 eggsHappy with this purchase

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR120GB 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast, sturdy, easy to install.
Still works flawlessly after 2 years.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This was my first SSD. Bought it more than two years ago. I keep my OS's (win7 and ubuntu) and frequently used programs (Web browser, image editing, office stuff, and sometimes a game or two) on it; everything else on a 1TB HDD.
I'm buying the 240 GB and giving this one (120GB) to my brother.

4 out of 5 eggsStand behind their product!

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR120GB 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Had this for a little over 2 years and it worked perfectly. I started using it to hold all my photos after buying a another ssd. Then a short time later it suddenly croaked. luckily for me I was in the good habit of backing everything up so I didn't loose any photos or data. So why 4 stars? I filed a RMA ticket and within 5 minutes, I received a call from Mushkin explaining the process and would receive an email on how to make the return. I sent it back to them on a Friday and received and new one on the following Wednesday, no questions asked. Now that's what I call service!

Cons: stopped working after 2 years however, I will continue using their products because of their exceptional service!

5 out of 5 eggs2 years strong

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR120GB 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Very fast drive. Boots windows in no time flat. Used to have a game or two installed on this until I bought a 480GB Mushkin which is just as great if not better and my load screens were (and still are) only a couple seconds (I mostly play WoW and BF4)

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: For those saying they had a drive or two fail and are finished with the product, just because it happened doesnt mean to write off a company completely. They have other great products as well.

People have to realize that even though these dont have mechanical parts, they do have a limit as to how many writes you can do before the drive deteriorates and ultimately fails. If youre using an SSD as your Windows OS drive and are constantly writing to the SSD, it is going to fail on you. That is why you need to have a small 250GB HDD to store your temp files on, pictures, music, documents, etc. There are guides on the internet to show you how to do this. So dont blame the drive for your lack of knowledge on the product. Dont put your tech knowledge at a 4 or a 5 if you dont know what you are talking about. There is a limit to write cycles for SSDs.
