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.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

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

Pros: Makes a good paper weight.

Cons: The first SSD would not show up in any bois, so I sent it back to Newegg for a replacement. According to Newegg the SATA connector was cracked. When the second one came, it appeared to be in working order. So, I installed Windows 7 and everything was working fine. Then the next day the computer started crashing and I got S.M.A.R.T. errors form the drive. I tried DBANing the drive, but it did not help. I ended up sending that drive back for refund.

Other Thoughts: This was the first time I bought something made by Mushkin. One DOA is forgivable, but two in a row is unacceptable. I will not be ordering anything else made by Mushkin anytime soon.

1 out of 5 eggsAwful

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

Pros: Cheap

Cons: I've had 6 of these. Within 6 months, 2 went bad. Within 1 year. 2 more went bad. Just a month ago, another one went bad. I have one more after just 1.5 years, and I'm afraid to use it. I don't want to loose anymore data. Now I only use Samsung EVO drives,.

1 out of 5 eggsfailed in less than 13 months

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

Pros: Worked fine for 12 months. Now it's dead barely a year after purchase.

Cons: Hassle of needing to buy a better SSD from a reliable source. Erased some of my documents though most are safe on my large storage drives.

Completely lost all progress on my taxes and will have to start from step one again. That and the general hassle of reloading windows and all my software have put me off Mushkin. This was my first product of theirs in 10 years of building my own PCs. I certainly won't be buying their products again as this is the only the second component I've ever had die within 2 years and the first to ever fail right at 1 year.

Seriously unhappy with the quality of this unit and I highly regret not going with the intel SSD.

3 out of 5 eggsmediocre performance.

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

Pros: Purchased this initially for my PS3, but after no performance gain over the 5400rpm standard, handed it over to roommate to have if he liked...

Cons: No noticeable performance gain whether on PS3 or Windows 7 x64.

Other Thoughts: was on sale when purchased... was only an experiment to begin with, still unimpressed by SSD's.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, but not great

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

Pros: Fast
Inexpensive

Cons: Had to RMA first one
Not as fast as 128GB Kingston SSD

Other Thoughts: Used in a Dell studio XPS 1640. A lot faster than the 5400 RPM SATA drive it came with. Could not install windows 7 on first drive. RMA'd and after a little tinkering with the SSD was able to get windows to install. No problems yet

1 out of 5 eggsUnreliable, slow and misleading. Do not buy.

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

Pros: -Performed fast for a week or two.
-Affordable.
-Came with mount.

Cons: -Malfunctioned after two weeks, has been slow and glitchy since then.
-Performs like 4 year old hard drive.
-Specs given did NOT meet up to actual specs.
-Extremely small warranty.

Other Thoughts: Why does a company continue to make such a malfunctional product? You get a profit perhaps, but 90% of your customers are unhappy because Mushkin doesn't make quality products. Captialism, man.
Do not buy this product, nor anything from Mushkin.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't Buy

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

Pros: The included 2.5 to 3.5 bracket is well made.
Price is good.

Cons: Purchased 2 of them. 1 failed after 3 weeks of use. (Constant blue screens after resuming from sleep and then total failure)

Other Thoughts: I have built over 50 computers on the side for friends and family and will not purchase another one of these. I am sticking to my OCZ drives.

I have submitted a ticket for RMA through their website. Newegg refused to help as it has been after 30 days.
