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.

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR90GB 2.5" 90GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: fast when works

Cons: Drive is causing random lockups. Tried it in several different machines with the same result. My fault I didn't get it installed and tested fast enough to return it.

2 out of 5 eggsNot that great a drive

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR90GB 2.5" 90GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: It was cheap, came with a 5.25 tray adapter

Cons: Initially had problems, couldn't get firmware software to recognize the drive, so they replaced it, replacement had same problem, however it seemed to work okay. I get intermittent BSOD and system lock-up. Updated motherboard, processor and memory. Seemed to work, however still get intermittent issues. Lived with it for awhile. Retried firmware update, it now recognizes the drive, however the firmware update fails, have a support ticket and a forum posting submitted, nothing yet. I know this drive needs its firmware updated.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent SSD

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR90GB 2.5" 90GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Price was great, a buck a gig. 5.25 tray adapter is nice.

Cons: Had issues, ran Mushkin's firmware software, and it couldn't find the drive, so they replaced it. Tried the same software on replacement, couldn't find that one either. however drive seems to be working fine. had it over a year now. Upgraded the motherboard to UEFI board, works good, even with Windows 8.1.

5 out of 5 eggsMy new favorite company

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR90GB 2.5" 90GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Had my almost 3 year-old Mushkin Callisto Deluxe SSD give up the ghost last week. It had a good life, Photoshop, video editing, a bit of gaming etc. Having had an SSD from another company go belly up last year, I was expecting to receive a refurbished Callisto. That’s what the other company did– a refurbished model of what I originally had. I was taken off guard when the replacement drive from Mushkin arrived at my house less than a week after sending in the original. Other company that I dealt with last year took the better part of three weeks to send a refurbished drive. Upon opening the box it took me a second to realize I was staring at a brand new Chronos SATA III. A bit of a step up from my trusty SATA II Callisto. I popped it in my system that evening did a clean install of Win7 and my other software. First impression: It’s as smooth as glass and wicked fast.

Just wanted to say thank you Mushkin. Service after the sale means my next SSD comes from them.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR90GB 2.5" 90GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: 7.9 Windows Score, It does boot and load programs quicker (Night and day between mechanical and ssd's).

Cons: I bought it locally from vendor and payed a little more but worth it!! Should of bought from here, sorry newegg!!

Other Thoughts: I don't know if raid would make much more difference since it appears to be so fast i couldn't imagine any faster....

5 out of 5 eggsFast!

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR90GB 2.5" 90GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Very fast! I almost never have to wait for data to move/copy across the drive. Speeds up game loads, and multitasking. Small size, low power draw. Reliable. Hasn't lost me a single bit of data.

Boots Win7 to desktop in 28 seconds. Sold.

Cons: I only wish I had gone bigger. 90gb gets cramped on todays game sizes.

Other Thoughts: Never going back to HDD. Nope

1 out of 5 eggsFailed

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR90GB 2.5" 90GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: It was super fast for the 2 months it worked.

Cons: Failed for no reason. Completely unrecognizable to mine and the computer I used to diagnose where my failure was. Very disappointed. I'll be contacting the manufacturer for a replacement.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR90GB 2.5" 90GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Not DOA
Fast
SATA III
Adequate storage

Cons: BSOD'd once on me, but after a reboot, it was fine. I have faith that this won't happen again.
The 3.5" adapter's holes do not line up with the brackets that have to be attached to it in order for it to fit in my case.
Only 90GB, but you are paying for speed, not capacity with SSD's.

Other Thoughts: I wish the adapter bracket that it comes with would be longer or something because the drive bay brackets that I have to use to be able to fit in my case go past the length of the adapter and pretty far past it. I have to use a rubber band to secure the drive bay brackets to the adapter plate on this drive. I got this drive when it was on sale, so I am very happy with the price/performance ratio. There are a lot of negative reviews on this SSD, so I was pretty hesitant about buying it, but I am glad I took the chance because it turned out to be a fantastic drive.

1 out of 5 eggsDONT BUY

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR90GB 2.5" 90GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: NONE!

Cons: Do yourself a favor and simply go find something better. This is the first and last purchase I will have with Mushkin. I hooked up the SSD to my computer and was able to get a clean OS on it and than all of the sudden it froze. I was able to get it to boot up again and run a harddrive check software. This new SSD had more failure errors than the 10 year old hard drive that was in my computer. Newegg was super and took the product back because they actually value customer service. Mushkin only had a replacement policy with no return. It was such a head ache becasuse it would work intermitently. It took hours to diagnos the problem to the harddrive.

Other Thoughts: Mushkin had such potential; I would encourage Newegg to stop dealing with the company. They seem to be more pain then gain.

1 out of 5 eggsNot Good

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR90GB 2.5" 90GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: cheap

Cons: Averaging a BSOD every 3-5 days, finally 3 days AFTER Newegg's return policy the drive totally gave it up. Couldn't even find it in Bios.

Other Thoughts: I understand that a firmware update may have helped this drive, but the firmware should have been stable PRIOR to the drive being boxed.
