  • 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.

1 out of 5 eggsProduct failed after 2 years

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

Pros: Worked sufficiently for 2 years.

Cons: Failed almost excactly 2 years after purchase

Other Thoughts: If I'm going to pay $170 or more for a 120 GB hard drive it should last. The reason to buy SSD's is they are less prone to failure. If the drive is going to fail anyway, I would have just bought a magnetic drive.

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

Pros: Cheap. comes with a bracket.

Cons: I purchased this 2 years ago and it worked great for a while. After about a year it slowed down. Now 2 years later is is as fast as a 7200rpm HHD.. It is getting slower at time goes by.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a cheap, quality SSD, pick up a Crucial M500 SSD.

5 out of 5 eggsFast and affordable

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

Pros: -7.9 WEI rating.
-Included 3.5 inch bracket
-Very Affordable

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This drive is performing admirably in my HTPC build. I am utilizing Sata II SSDs in two of my other systems, and they don't hold a candle to this. No issues with OS installation. Boot time on my system is under 10 seconds (including BIOS). I purchased this drive during a shellshocker for $70, and it was well worth it. This drive outperforms the SATA III 256GB SSDs my company purchased for use in their systems, and they paid nearly $1 per GB.

Current HTPC build:
-AMD 760K Richland 3.8Ghz
-CM Hyper 101i Cooler
-MSI A88XM-E45
-4x2GB DDR3-1600 GSkill Ripjaws
-AMD Radeon 6670 1GB DDR3
-120GB Mushkin Enhanced Chronos SSD
-3TB Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm
-Xigmatek 400W PSU
-nMedia 6000B HTPC case

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

Pros: Fast while it lasted.

Cons: This SSD is a replacement for the first one that died. Two Mushkin SSD's lasted less than a year each.

Other Thoughts: $79.99 down the drain Thanks Mushkin.

4 out of 5 eggsBought A few one bad one

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

Pros: 10 Purchased, 1 Bad over a few month's time. Problem was that I couldn't return to new egg because by the time I diagnosed that the drive was bad it passed the 1 month return time for new egg. Had to return to mushkin directly.

Cons: Had to return to mushkin and they were "backordered" on the drive? I don't know how the vendor is backordered on their own product? So I am still waiting for my replacement drive.

5 out of 5 eggsLove these drives!

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

Pros: The synchronous models (which this one is not) are extremely fast! This one is an Asynchronous model, but it is still faster than most other drives out there. Nice packaging, very well machined casing, great heat dissipation, & comes with a drive bay adaptor. Easy setup, worked right out of the box and did not need a firmware update. I have purchased several of these over the last two years and only one failed. Customer support was fast, friendly and provided a replacement drive without any hassle.

Cons: Asynchronous model... but still faster than most other drives. I have not yet experienced any cons.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat until it fails

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

Pros: Fast, good warranty (3 years)
Great costumer support and service (RMA)

Cons: Failed within the second year, twice.

Other Thoughts: I have bought this ssd on special @ 99 $ and ran fine for the first year and a half. Then all sudden it wouldn't boot and wasn't detecting in the BIOS. I contacted costumer support and they replace it within a week. The new one ran for about 6 month and afterward it started to have bad sectors, no detection in BIOS. Now it's not detected anymore, again. I have a samsung SSD that is two years old and I don't have any problems with it so far. Also have a 2 X 500 GB western digital black hard drive that are still running perfectly (one of them is 8 years old) I guess 'ill have to rma again.
