5 out of 5 eggsBLAZING FAST!

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

Pros: -Extremely Fast! Windows loads up in seconds. The moment I see the windows logo on boot, it takes 3 seconds before it gets into windows.
-Speed is as advertised. 500+ on atto benchmarks
-Got it on sale for 69.99

Cons: There are better SSD's if this isn't on sale. Other than that, no cons so far!

Other Thoughts: Keep in mind that your motherboard and the ports also plays a role in speed. I have 6 black sata ports that only run at 200mb~ while my 2 white sata ports run it at 500mb+

5 out of 5 eggsTruly worth it

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

Pros: I just like Mushkin Enhanced SSDs. I had Kingston, Sandisk Extrem, OCZ and HyperX before but Mushking Enhanced Chronos is just great. Price is right on, performance is there, balanced in R/W, Random 4k IOPS are good. Install flawlessly with Win7-8 no problem, no additional driver required

For the price, you can't go wrong, I had a few of those in different builds already.

Cons: none

Manufacturer Response:

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for the $$

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

Pros: Got my fist one over two years ago. No problems. Got it on sale for something like $70. Chose this drive for it's read/write speeds compared to others at the time. Drive is very fast and stable. My replacement hasn't missed a beat after OS installs on AM3+ board and now Z97 with fresh OS.

Cons: First drive lasted under a year. Swapped it from an AM3+ build to an AM3 for hardware testing. Win7 booted up, auto installed all drives for other rig, worked fine. Put it back in the build it came out of, bios booted, Win7 booted... stalled. Wouldn't even let the PC boot to bios after that. Total failure.

Other Thoughts: Mushkin had no problems sending replacement. No questions asked. Was delivered very fast. Great RMA. Not refurbished. I will likely buy another to try RAID0 with the one I have now. Definitely recommend this to anyone on a budget.

5 out of 5 eggsMushkin MKNSSDCR120GB

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

Pros: Fast fast fast. Over 500MBps read and write. Comes with a mounting tray so you can put it in a 3.5 bay.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This is my third Mushkin SSD, and my second of this model. Prices keep getting better. As of this review, $65 US. I keep seeing 120 GB SSD on the SHell Shocker deal for the same price. Mushkin has the same price EVERY DAY. I am a real fanboy. Mushkin all the way. Incredible track record with me.

4 out of 5 eggsF A S T on a budget

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

Pros: Price and speed

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Installed Windows 8.1 enterprise for SMB office. Took less then 10 minutes to go from blank new HDD to windows 8.1 desktop. Installed by SANDISK USB drive. I will only circle back to update if I have issues that you need to be aware . So far this is a great budget drive!

1 out of 5 eggsBeen through 3 of these in 3 computers, giving up.

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

Pros: Speed is pretty good. Brackets seem to be solid and mounting is ok.

Cons: I've had this drive for a little over a year. It had died on my three times. The first time was in my friend's brand new computer. We sent it back and got a new drive. Then it was in my computer. It died. We sent it back and got a new one. Finally it was in my wife's desktop computer that is rarely used. It died again. Same thing. I'm not going to bother returning it this time because I'm sure they will just send back another piece of defective refurbished garbage. I've always loved Mushkin RAM, but this product is a dud. I've severely disappointed.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsa SSD for you and me

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

Pros: Affordable
Sleek design

Cons: None
2years+, still flawless.

Other Thoughts: Ordering a second 120GB for my Steam folder or perhaps a 240GB and reporpuse my 120 for 'games/apps'.
Either way it's all-win.
