1 out of 5 eggsBe Careful!

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

Pros: Seems to be a fast drive, price was ok.

Cons: Drive failed after 4 months of use. Called the number that was with the instructions and was told to go to the website.

Well, I went to the website and they want personal information to send back an item that is under warranty.

I have been in the electronics business for over 35 years and I have never asked my customers for credit card info to send back an item.

This policy is really bad business, so Muskin will never get any of my money ever again!

Other Thoughts: I bought 2 drives that day: A Muskin ssd drive and a Seagate Momentus drive. The Seagate is working like a champ: The Mushkin sits in a corner with a lesson learned: Don't ever buy a Mushkin Ssd drive, as they will keep your money even if the item is in warranty.

1 out of 5 eggsUpdating review

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

Pros: It has a 3 year warranty. Mushkin will replace faulty drives with refurbs quickly. <The refurbs are just as faulty and will soon fail>

This product is great to use when you want to silently screw someone over. Install it as their OS drive and watch them cry 2 months later as their computer won't boot up. Install it as a storage drive and you can giggle in anticipation for when the time comes that they lose all the work they've saved.

Cons: This drive is not heavy enough to make a decent paper weight.

Since buying this drive back in 4/2012, it has failed 4 times. Failed meaning it is no longer detected or recognized by multiple computers. I have had it replaced by Mushkin 3 times. After the 3rd death, I requested Mushkin send me an alternative model as it is obvious that this model has design flaws. They refused, but were happy enough to send me the same horrible drive that will randomly die with no warning.

Well, I'm done with mushkin. I still have time to request a replacement, but I have no interest in using or owning an unreliable hard drive.

Other Thoughts: As I have found the ownership experience of this Mushkin product so frustrating and distasteful, I will ensure that all devices I now order for my employer never include any Mushkin hardware. Thanks for the drive failures.

Manufacturer Response:

2 out of 5 eggsGood for a while

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

Pros: Fast when new.

Cons: Degraded over time.

Other Thoughts: I bought this in May of 2012 and it was speedy fast--loaded Windows 7 in less than 15 seconds. Upgraded to Windows 8.1 and over the years it has slowed down to where it seems slower than a 7200 RPM mechanical drive. Was good while it lasted...

Maximum Total Bytes Written (TBW) to flash by capacity using the JEDEC standardized formula as shown below:

Other Thoughts: Of course with the way these things die, who knows the number of cycles.
Had been my first SSD...

2 out of 5 eggsWorst drive

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

Pros: Fast Drive, thats pretty much all I have for that.

Cons: I have had this drive for a year and a month and I have had to replace this 2 times..

Other Thoughts: Ive been building computers for a long time and this is by far the worst drive ive ever owned.. I usually take things as they are and never write reviews but this just couldnt be avoided. I will say they have great customer service though. they are very quick to respond and really have no issue replacing products.. Might be cause they know the product is bad,, never the less I will give them that.

5 out of 5 eggsGood drive for a great price.

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

Pros: Bought this drive as well as an optical drive conversion caddy to add a fast boot drive to my MSI laptop and use the standard 7200RPM drive as storage. Boots to the login screen within 6 seconds running Windows 7. Great performance for a reasonable price, though to be fair I got it on sale.

Cons: For the current price I'd not recommend it. But, as I got it on sale for ~$70, it was a steal.

5 out of 5 eggsIt was good!

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

Pros: - fast
- lasted 2 years and a half
- got severely beaten (to death) and didn't whine
- 3 years warranty

Cons: - lasted 2 years and a half
- died

Other Thoughts: my computer is full of heat and it's not the best place to live, even for an ssd. I will now test Mushkin for their warranty service, which I never did before.

1 out of 5 eggsDied

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

Pros: Fast.

Cons: Died on me 4 separate times. Died twice in the first year, sent in for warranty and died 2 times since then in the last year. I believe the problem is in the controller. Sometimes the drive doesn't even successfully power up.

Other Thoughts: Would not recommend, controller is bad.

2 out of 5 eggsdisappointed

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

Pros: very fast - when it worked. Win 7 boot up within 1 minute.
Program loading very fast - M/S FSX for example loaded in 1/4 the time compared to HDD resident

Mushkin was responsive in my dealings with them.

Cons: Flaky as all getout! Worked as my sys disk (Win) for several months and then started failing. Boot device not found during boot up. Device not showing up under disk manager. SSD would re-appear at random times. RMA'd with Mushkin - no questions asked they just sent me 2 new 120gB SSDs. Same problem! Finally relegated the 2 SSDs to low priority offline data storage for about a year. But then my FSX had grown to such a size it was taking forever to load so I tried putting FSX back on one of the (new) SSDs to speed it up only to have quirky video & texture problems start showing up (e.g. flashes and stutters). So went back to HDD with my FSX and gave up on the Mushkins. Very expensive paperweights!

I don't think SSD is reliable enough for sys disk or for high demand graphics apps like FSX

Other Thoughts: I can get 30 - 40 frames/second with my HDDs, thanks to tweaks and tricks, so I am content with having to wait 2 minutes for FSX to load! I'll wait for SSD to be more mainstream and reliable
