2 out of 5 eggsAnother RMA

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDCR480GB

Pros: Mushkin email support has been responsive. Their RMA process has been painless. As for the drive itself, the original one lasted 2 months, the RMA replacement lasted about 12 months and we'll see how long that replacement will last.

Cons: These drives do not seem to last. I'm using a different company now for my main disk, so we'll see.

Other Thoughts: I've heard a lot of good about Mushkin, but haven't had much success with their drives. I'm getting a new version of this particular disk in my RMA. It's my hope it will have a better lifespan. If you use SSD, it seems to me you had better have a flawless backup plan.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDCR480GB

Pros: -Cheap
-Reliable
-Much faster than HDD

Cons: -Not the fastest SSD ever.

Other Thoughts: I was a high school student without much money when I bought these. I needed more space and these were on a flash sale. I thought they wouldn't last for long because I had never heard of Mushkin but I'd have money for a new drive by the time they failed. I couldn't have been more wrong about that.

For the price these are a steal. I've had one as a games drive in my main PC and another as my boot drive in my HTPC. Overall great drives that have been chugging away for the last ~2 years without a hitch.

Now as a custom PC builder I still use Mushkin drives when I am on a tight budget because the $/gb is outstanding and I trust them because I have not yet had one die on me.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing Mushkin.
We appreciate your feedback and support.

1 out of 5 eggsUnreliable

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDCR480GB

Pros: Performed well for a short period of time.

Cons: Unreliable. Stopped working completely within approximately 5 months of being installed. Not warranteed.

Other Thoughts: Purchased this solid state hard drive on the advice of a computer specialist. Assured that solid state hard drives perform well and are quite reliable. Not true. This one crashed within a few months of being installed.

1 out of 5 eggsWhat the heck. . .

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDCR480GB

Pros: I thought it was OK, although since creating a new image, my system was being glitchy. I wrote that off to the normal layering of new software.

Cons: Dead as Jacob Marley. One week and some 20 hours of stacking new software, and ironing out Outlook, and everything else it takes. My time bills out at $250 per hour. Now I will have to call 20 software companies to convince them that I am not trying to screw them. Fotunately, most of my data resides on a separate drive, halleluah! Fortunately, Comcast keeps my email for two weeks. Now I have to go through 1000 emails all over again.

Other Thoughts: I thought that I could trust an SSD.

1 out of 5 eggsSpeedy! - Death 2nd review

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDCR480GB

Pros: Very fast SSD! Loads and transfers very quick!
3yr warranty or use limit.

Cons: None!

EDIT: I am now on my third drive. I have had two drive die each lasted about four months. Mushkin has warrantied all of them but still a waste of my time! Starts with random freezes and then a system crash reboot and the drive disappears from BIOS.

Other Thoughts: I would buy a different drive. I just purchased a Samsung 500gb srive with better reviews and seems to be a more reliable drive. I will give this third drive a try. Mushkin after three strikes you are out in my book!
