5 out of 5 eggsMushkin SSD 240GB

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR240GB-7 2.5" 240GB SATA III 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Small, fast, and lots of room. It takes my Win 7 Pro PC only 22 seconds to startup. Much better than my old time of 98 seconds or more.

Cons: The only con is that it does not come with any hardware for mounting. You only get the drive. This no concern for me since my tower had the hardware already for this.

Other Thoughts: So far this SSD has performed great. I've been looking to replace my old RAID 0 system and this drive has not disappointed me. I would have knocked

4 out of 5 eggsFirmware

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR240GB-7 2.5" 240GB SATA III 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: New firmware should be 600ABBF0

Cons: Original SSD would not update to firmware on support website.
Firmware updater listed file as not compatible with drive.
File on support website is lower revision then one in replacement drive.

Other Thoughts: Performance and reliability was poor.
Original had random freezing issue, performance was bottom tier.
Mushkin RMA was very quick.
Replacement SSD has newer firmware and is much faster!
AS SSD overall score went from 430 on original to almost 700 on RMA replacement.
Seq Read are actually close to 500 MB/s
Surprise, surprise.

5 out of 5 eggsCheap, Fast SSD

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR240GB-7 2.5" 240GB SATA III 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: - Fast
- Cheap

Cons: - Doesn't come with a 3.5 Converter

Other Thoughts: I have had one of these in a computer for about a year now, and have not had issues with it. These are one of the cheapest SSDs on the market, and yet one of the fastest. This does make me a little leery of quality, but I have had no issues with any of these drives so far. It would have been nice to see a 3.5 inch converter included with the drive, but most cases nowadays have 2.5 inch slots specifically for SSDs.

Overall, I have no reason to dock this drive eggs. It holds up to its speed claims, and thus far reliability has not been an issue.

2 out of 5 eggsWas great, now dead

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR240GB-7 2.5" 240GB SATA III 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Easy install. Much faster load times than the HD. Worked great for a year.

Cons: One year later, the drive is now dead. Won't boot up and not recognized at all. I will be pulling it out and try to see if I can recover any files.

Other Thoughts: How do I get a replacement for this?

1 out of 5 eggsFailed after 8 months

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR240GB-7 2.5" 240GB SATA III 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: -Fast
-Good value on paper
-Includes 2.5" to 3.5" adapter

Cons: -Failed after 8 months of light use
-Screw holes poorly drilled
-Uses a lot more power than comparable SSD's

Other Thoughts: Some time ago, Mushkin said that they were sending me a replacement. That was some time ago. They also don't seem like they're going to refund what I paid to ship and insure the device for warranty service which is common these days, but irritating nonetheless.

Would I buy another Mushkin SSD? Probably not, given the availability of more competitive options with better reputations.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsFailed after 7 months

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR240GB-7 2.5" 240GB SATA III 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: It worked for 7 months

Cons: It died after 7 months

Other Thoughts: Of all the brands of SSD's I have purchased for my business (and I have purchased many) this is the only failure I have had. Unfortunately the computer it was in was 1600 miles away. It cost me shipping both ways. Baaa.....
