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.

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR180GB 2.5" 180GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: um, i could use it as a secondary drive, Maybe?

one of the messages was that the I/O was malfunctioning.

Other Thoughts: Formatted Space 167G.

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR180GB 2.5" 180GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast - Doesnt make a sound -small

Cons: HD failed after about 5 months -

Other Thoughts: I did get the HD to come back up after 4 days of working on it. I ended up having to erase everything. I had my Windows 8 OS on there as well as several personal files

1 out of 5 eggsfailed catastrophically

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR180GB 2.5" 180GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast, low power consumption, and unaffected by vibration.

Cons: LSI/Sandforce controller means failure in any memory module is catastrophic. Not even a professional recovery service will be able to recover any data on the drive. Mine failed after 3 months. To add insult to injury, Mushkin refused to RMA the drive because it had been to a recovery service.

Other Thoughts: Do not use an SSD with an LSI/Sandforce controller in any critical system (i.e. where a few hours of data is important). It is not a question of if you will loose your data, but when. Make frequent or even on-line backups.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

5 out of 5 eggs1 year+ Usage

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR180GB 2.5" 180GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Does what it says. Still working for as of 1 year+. Nothing but good things to say about Mushkin

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Good price on this SSD. Although I would recommend Mushkin 240gb drive, which is a better price per dollar.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent SSD, good price

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR180GB 2.5" 180GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Great price for 180 gig SSD. I've had no issues with the drive so far.

Cons: Might be a better idea to get a 120 gig or even 80 gig SSD for the OS and game of the week, then keep everything else on HDD. I didn't get a HDD so I am limited to 180gig. Fortunately I have enough external drives it won't be an issue.

3 out of 5 eggsfirst one dead, second one fine

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR180GB 2.5" 180GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Its a ssd, and it is fast and cheap

Cons: had to rma the first one, after mushkin tech support was no help and blamed the motherboard. Second one worked fine though

5 out of 5 eggsExpected Results

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR180GB 2.5" 180GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Good storage density for the price. SSD Goodness, 0.3ms seek times
WEI score went from 5.9 to 7.4
Office 2010 applications load in the blink of an eye (word, excel, ppt).

Cons: Not a speedy performer compared to other SSDs. This isn't the fastest drive out there by any means. It's the lowest end model of the Mushkin line of Chronos drives. The 500MB/Sec is misleading because that's not what you're going to get, that's most likely a speed rating of the SataIII or some odd ball burst rate. I'm using Sata II so my max rate should be around 300MB/second. I'm getting about 180MB/Sec max and average about 140MB/Sec. The lowest I get is around 107MB/Sec.

Other Thoughts: I wasn't looking for a star performer, I just didn't want to wait for Virtual Machines to boot, and I needed the SSD to have enough capacity so I could fit large software packages and VMs. It's better to have the space to do what you need at high speed, then not have the space at BLAZING speed. That's why I didn't choose a faster SSD. This one is a balance for performance and capacity at this price point.
