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

1 out of 5 eggsMushkin Drives are Junk, Don't buy!

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

Pros: None, even on sale they are more expensive than their competition.

Cons: Ordered 6 drives, 4 of them had IO errors and one had a bad controller. Their website has no real support or diagnostic tools available, and their support center is only available from M-F during regular business hours. But good luck getting anyone to answer.

Other Thoughts: I have ordered hundreds of SSDs from all of the manufacturers, and Mushkins are the only ones that constantly have problems when they are new.

5 out of 5 eggsHappy with it

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

Pros: It put new life in old PC. AN8 Mobo and Athlon single core 64 bit, new in 2005. running W7. Noticeably faster. Runs smooth, has never crashed windows. Assembled in USA. Support guy spoke English in easy terms to understand.

Cons: Had hard time getting my old Bios (Phoenix Award) to "see" it. Long story shortened, Called Support. Used Knoppix Linux on CD, That could "see" the new SSD, Partitioned and formatted using Knoppix. Then Windows install disc could find it.

Other Thoughts: I waited a while to post to see how it worked out. About 5 months and still happy with it. The 5 good eggs are for Mushkin.

Newegg deserves a couple of broken eggs for promising 7-day delivering. I waited ten days.

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
