5 out of 5 eggsReally well made

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

Pros: I have two of these in R.A.I.D. 0 , I get dang close to advertised speeds. According to ATTO My highest Write numbers read as the following.
Write: 1028867
Read: 1095654

Cons: no issues what so ever

Other Thoughts: I'm thinking about running 4 instead of 2 . I would like to see what 4 will do for my computer. Running an Intel Pentium anniversary 2014
Not the fastest horse in the stable.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Drives

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

Pros: Super amazing fast!!! I own several of these and have set them up as the main "C:\" drive running in a several different Asus and 1 Gigabyte Motherboards. Every one with the exception of the Gigabyte & 1 Asus board running in a SATA III Raid Strip 0 & these drives literally kill it! Pulling down solid over 1GB's+ a second sequentially Read & Write!!! Wicked quick, booting into W7 64, smoking every other machine I've ever seen.

Cons: None, especially now with the cost being dropped and cut even more!

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for crazy speed, buy these drives! Mine are all still running strong and taking names!

2 out of 5 eggsBad Drive?

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

Pros: Drive technically works... with formtted capacity showing up.

Cons: Slow! Barely scratches the surface of 200 megabytes a second in read speed, tested in 2 different machines. Have more than 1 SSD, the others prove that SATA III speeds are possible on machines, this drive is just faulty. Will RMA.

Other Thoughts: Drive is probably good, but i fear for its stability/life span if its transferring at such slow speeds already, who knows what else is wrong with it.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as advertised

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

Pros: It's an SSD. It worked without any weird flashing or configuring.

Cons: I can't leave this box blank.

Other Thoughts: I'm not looking for crazy read/write times, I'm looking for a nice safe drive for gaming (OS is already on a smaller SSD).

However, thanks to those that did crunch the numbers so us laymen can mooch off your data. Keep it up, it's why Newegg rocks.

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?
