5 out of 5 eggsWorks in my MBP 2012

3 out of 5 eggsDecent while it worked

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

Pros: Speeds expected out of an SSD. Low cost.

Cons: Died less than a year. Drive failures are typical - my only issue is out of the 15-20 SSD's currently running in my workstations, this is the first brand to go that quick. Samsung seems to be the most durable.

Other Thoughts: Wish their RMA was as easy as Western Digital. I don't like it when manufactures make it difficult to return defective equipment if all they need is the serial number to see if it's in warranty or not.

3 out of 5 eggsFlaky

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

Pros: It's an SSD. Pretty quick.

Cons: Crapped out on me within a month of owning it. Sometimes wouldn't boot until it just died completely. RMA'd / replaced. Just last week (almost exactly 2yrs since purchase), I got another failure to boot. I fear it's going to die anytime again.

Other Thoughts: Samsung SSD bought at the same time is going strong. Bought another Samsung to replace this. Mushkin was easy to deal with for the replacement, but reliability seems to be an issue.

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

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.

5 out of 5 eggs

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.

other hardware:

Intel Core i5 4570-->(Looking for K series for overclocking)
MSI Z97 Gaming 7
8GB Ram 2133 ADATA
ASUS R9 270X 2GB TOP OC
240GB Mushkin Enhanced SDD Sata 6gb/s
500GB Segate HDD Sata 6gb/s
800w PSU
