2 out of 5 eggsPeriodic Headache

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR240GB 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast. Many times quicker than my WD Black former system drive for boot, program install, program loading, updates, everything.

Cons: After owning about a year, it started to develop a fault where it would randomly de-mount itself from the BIOS. This causes frequent system hangs and BSOD's and refusals to boot. Only way to get the BIOS to re-recognize the drive is an at-the-wall power disconnect for the whole system for a few minutes. Then the drive works again like magic for a few days... But this repeats a couple times a week.

Other Thoughts: Tried updating firmware, different Sata cable, different sata port, different MOBO.

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR240GB 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This thing is fast. It's really, really fast. It makes other fast things look not fast. for 109.99 this is by far the best bang for your buck. Super fast reads, loads and writes. Unbelievable! 7.9 on WEI.

Cons: did not have cloning software

Other Thoughts: Upgraded from an old dusty barracuda and WOW what a difference. Installed windows in 7 minutes!!!! Loads Skyrim fully modded in 3 seconds. every program and application so far reacts instantly. Only took 40 minutes to install 186 windows updates, This thing is BEAST! BUY THIS NOW. (it is faster than the 480 gb counterpart so buy 2 and put them in raid)

2 out of 5 eggsFast while it worked

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR240GB 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast while it worked, price was decent

Cons: Started failing after 2 years. One day windows wouldn't boot up, the boot sector (and probably more) was corrupt. The first and second time I was able to format and reinstall windows. Now four months later it died for the third time, and windows is not able to write to the drive, even after attempting to format and scan the drive. Doesn't give me confidence in SSDs, but I'll probably replace it with a Samsung 840 Evo. The Sandforce controller is unreliable.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Performance SSD for the price

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR240GB 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Well, how to explain that I'm upgrading from HDD and this is fantastic. Like someone reviewed I'm always one of the first to load into a map on Battlefield 4 too. Getting 520 Mb/s on read and 505 Mb/s on write. Best SSD for the bucks.

Cons: Everyone says that SSD is cooler than HDD, not sure if is only my case but, this one is hotter than my old HDD from Segate. My old HDD was on 32C on idle. This new SSD is getting 40C on idle. Not taking an egg off because of this.

Other Thoughts: Loving SSD since this one from Toshiba.

1 out of 5 eggsfailed after 18 months poor customer support

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR240GB 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Worked for 18 months.

Cons: Failed after 18 months. Customer support puts you on hold indefinitely with really painful music that hurts you ears so you have to hang up.
. Tech support tells you to call Customer support.

Sent email and was told to call customer support or respond to the email . The email address is a "no reply" box so it gets bounced back

Called CS was put on hold again for 30 min so far.

1 out of 5 eggsNot a reliable drive

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR240GB 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast drive when its new and fresh.

Cons: Die unexpectedly when SMART utility shows only 2 reallocated sectors with bandwith of 100. SSD is totaly dead. Even BIOS can't see the connected drive.

Other Thoughts: The first indication of SSD to die is errors during copy of large files. When You see such erros You have couple of days to act otherwise all data is lost forever.

1 out of 5 eggsNEVER AGAIN!

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR240GB 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Price

Cons: All are failing - one after the other. Ordered a bunch of them for our computer store. Worst product we ever bought. Even the replacement they sent are failing. Not sure what to do with a MUSHKIN product. We wanted to use their ram but are afraid to start an other ordeal.

Other Thoughts: MUSHKIN should check their quality control or they will ruin their name!

Manufacturer Response:
