Pros: Mushkin deserves to survive the Samsung onsLaught! Stats Look good & reviews seem mostLy positive! "Was" going into 955BE/AM3+ mobo w/ a 270X-4Gig. vid card, ALSO part of the order!?

Cons: So, $20 premium for 3 day & they shanked it! if UPS can get their heads out of u know where, maybe this thing will show up!! Now it's Monday noon, and it's still not here?!?

Other Thoughts: UPS says Newegg added a 4 digit suffix that caused me to be put off 3 days. 3 days!?!? And these are pros?!?

2 out of 5 eggsGood when working

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

Pros: Solid made, easy to put into case. Comes with a nice solid mounting bracket. When OS is installed into drive, loads incredibly fast. Games/applications all launch and run smoothly.

Cons: The issue I give a 2 and not a 5 is simple. First one died on me. Had to RMA. It would started vanishing from BIOS not showing up at all. Tested power supply cables, diff sata cables and ports. RMA'd and recieved the second one and it its done the same thing once so far. Showed back up after a power cycling. Unacceptable for the cost of these things.

Other Thoughts: Bios is up-to-date to latest for board. Going to try some more testing/trouble shooting but like another guy I suspect a horrible batch with this one. It was discontinued pretty fast off newegg..

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointing

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

Pros: Fast, easy to install. Good Customer Service from Mushkin.

Cons: First drive died after three weeks of use. Contacted Mushkin and they replaced the drive with another unit. This replacement caused bluescreens in Windows 7, but after checking their forums I found that the firmware was out of date. I updated it and all seemed well for another week until the drive died as well. There is definitely a quality control issue with this particular model. i also have one of Mushkin's msata drives and have had no issues with it,

1 out of 5 eggsDied after three Months...

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

Pros: When it worked it was fast. Sata III made this thing fly.

Cons: The SSD died as it will not register with the motherboard. I tried it on another system and it did not register at all. All that money went POOF. Just submitted an RMA and awaiting a response from Mushkin.. I will update if/when they get back to me. Definitely within the 3 year warranty period. Asking for a replacement...

Other Thoughts: I hope that I can get a replacement. Mushkin is supposed to be good with RMAs....let's see if it works.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for multi-core systems

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

Pros: On my 16-core machine, this SSD improved my Windows Experience Index from 5.9 to 7.1, but the responsiveness of virtually everything on the system has improved dramatically. My company has been using these in 64-core servers as well, and we have not been disappointed.

Cons: It even includes the 2.5 to 3.5" mounting bracket. I can't think of anything else I would want. No reliability problems here.

5 out of 5 eggsNot the fastest SSD but......

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

Pros: As titled the high density of the NAND makes this not the fastest available SSD. The point here hough is the SSD is huge and so fast to begin with I doubt anyone will notice any real world difference. With a SATA III interface this drive would be faster as well but on my current SATA II bus the drive will stream uncompresible files in either read or write at the full bus speed.

480GB, or 465GB formated, is a great size for boot, programs and data. I can now use the second drive just for nightly images of the boot drive and data for data and system protection. My photo software loves R/W of those 10MB raw files on the SSD rather than the HDD.

Cons: Still costs more than a HDD but now a single drive system can affordably be setup with a full SSD.

Other Thoughts: If you have an original sandforce SSD the upgrade just may not be worth the cost. That is unless you need to change your workflow, then this may just be the ticket.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid and speedy

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

Pros: fast and reliable

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I purchased a 240 GB model and it was so impressive to my colleague that he bought this larger version. Like the 240 GB drive, we've been using them in Macbook Pro laptops. The larger came with the latest firmware and I updated the 240 GB model before using it. Neither drive has had a single issue and they're very fast. I recommend these Mushkin drives to anyone looking for an SSD.
