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!

  • 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.
  • newegg 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.
  • newegg 2.5" to 3.5" Adapter Included The Chronos Series features a standard 2.5-inch form factor for compatibility with notebooks and select desktops. A 2.5-inch to 3.5-inch mounting bracket is included with the SSD for compatibility with standard hard drive mounting.

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!

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.

1 out of 5 eggsOnly last about 2 weeks

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

Pros: This was my first SSD and I was very pleased with it while it was in working order.

Cons: First one I got died within a couple weeks Mushkin was very accommodating with the RMA, the second one died within a couple weeks as well. Now my SSD just sits in a box next to my PC because it doesn't work. Because of the multiple drive failures that I have experienced with this SSD I will likely never buy a Mushkin product again.

5 out of 5 eggsCheap, Fast, Just right

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

Pros: Its an SSD regardless of whatever type of NAND it is using, synchronous or asynchronous. Bought to use on a web browsing only PC and its fast! PC boots up in seconds and its everything you could ask for in an SSD. 65 bucks too!

Cons: None, works just fine, couldn't bother to ask for more.

2 out of 5 eggs2 failed then third failed two years in

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

Pros: Ordered one for a custom desktop I made. Gigabyte motherboard, AMD A10 CPU, 8 GB DDR3, Windows 7 Oem etc. The first one would not be recognized at all. RMAed it. Second one would not recognize. RMAed it. Third one recognized and worked for 1.5 years. The good is: It's fast and was a good price

Cons: Failure rate is awful, Also bought a Mushkin 240 and it failed in the first two weeks. RMAed that one and replaced it in the PC again. That one failed two months later. Finally I bought a kingston SSD and have not had to fix their PC again.

Other Thoughts: Mushkin RAM is fine, their solid states have failed too many times for my taste. Makes me look bad to my clients.

3 out of 5 eggsnot sure

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

Pros: Fast when working

Cons: I have purchased a few of these now and for the most part they have been fine, except recently I had 2 that were sometimes working and other times giving me data read error at boot. Also note, I do not like the connectors on these, they do not have the clip to lock in the sata cable, very flaky. You get what you pay for.
