5 out of 5 eggsGreat little drive!

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR480GB-7 2.5" 480GB SATA III 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Great drive, was surprised with price when i got it but works like a champ. Brought some life back to my MacBook pro. I was so close to dumping it after the iOS update, but now it feels 5X faster than when I first got it.

Cons: was worried that it may not have worked in my Macbook as its not listed anywhere that its compatible with Mac.

5 out of 5 eggsHas worked for me 15 months

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR480GB-7 2.5" 480GB SATA III 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Bought this based on price / capacity / Mushkin name. Has performed flawlessly in two different laptops since 9/29/2013. Installed Win7 Pro 64 bit without a hitch. Blazing fast. No issues.

Cons: Today's price is a bit high. At time of purchase, $320 was fantastic.

Other Thoughts: Hope I don't have to edit this later with a failure.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsDied as fast as it ran!

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR480GB-7 2.5" 480GB SATA III 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Worked well for about a week. Extremely fast. Got it down to a 22 second boot.

Cons: Started disappearing in bios. Then it got more frequent and then permanently gone. Tried 6 different new cables. Tried all sata ports and nothing changed. When I bought this hard drive for a customer it had good reviews. Now, I see there are plenty bad ones. This build was supposed to be shipped out into the customers open arms. Now I need to find another ssd pronto!

Cons: expensive

1 out of 5 eggsDEAD

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR480GB-7 2.5" 480GB SATA III 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Inexpensive for volume
Worked without issue for almost 15 minutes

Cons: When I initially decided on purchasing this drive the reviews were few but most/all good. Now after my experience and reading the new reviews it seems this product is a dud.

Ultimately, the drive is dead and useless.

Other Thoughts: This is my first experience with Mushkin and it has made a bad impression. I have used other branded SSDs in this price point without issue. Judging from the other reviews and my experience, there is a huge quality control issue.

5 out of 5 eggsFast SSD

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR480GB-7 2.5" 480GB SATA III 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Very fast SSD. I bought this for a laptop that is about 2 years old. I like using my laptop but I hated how long it took to boot up. Bought this SSD on ShellShocker for $180.

The laptop used to take minutes to boot up with it's old 5400RPM drive. With this drive it boots up in about 25 seconds. And, that is ready to use in 25 seconds, not loading background programs and the computer still running slow. The computer is fully booted and ready to use in less than 30 seconds.

Parkdale gave it a Read rate of about 510Mbps and a Write of about 440Mpbs. Very fast drive. Feels like a new laptop.

Cons: As with all SSD's it comes down to price and capacity. As I mentioned I got mine on sale and it was well worth it. At regular price I would have a hard time spending that much on an old laptop.

Other Thoughts: Depending on your budget and use of the drive I suggest putting it on your price watch list. If it is below $200 this drive is well worth it!

It is worth it at the current price, do no misunderstand me, you just have to find the justification to spend ~$360 for 480GB.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing Mushkin.

1 out of 5 eggsNot worth it

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR480GB-7 2.5" 480GB SATA III 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Good price.

Cons: I've had many problems with I/O exceptions when using this product. On my work laptop, it would freeze the OS and would require me to warm boot to fix. I replaced with a Samsung SSD and everything worked fine. When I tried to use this SSD into my Windows machine, it seems to just cause Windows to disappear. This one needed a cold boot to resolve Windows disappearance however.

Other Thoughts: Spend a little extra money for a more reliable device.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsSo Far, Disappointed

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR480GB-7 2.5" 480GB SATA III 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Was fast for the 5 Minuets of write time it gave me.

Cons: Only ran for 5 Minuets then died! Very angry, own many of their 240GB SSD's for years even now, with no issues! Purchased faster delivery UPS to get it here, Newegg is replacing it but to send back to them, took their sweet time. Now have been without it for well over a week! Newegg has replaced it from what I can see, just recently sending it out yesterday via 3 day UPS (emailed info). I'll be approx 2 weeks from originally getting it before I receive the replacement!

Other Thoughts: I have no idea what the deal is with this SSD! As stated, I own several of their 240Gb SSD's and 1 40GB SSD, never experiencing any problems with any of those for 2 years and counting! Was getting really excited to receive this 480GB, planned to install my new Diablo III Reaper of Souls game on it and now more wait time! I now that things happen but with their track record with me so far, I am really disturbed! I mean I even own a 32GB & 64GB USB 3.0 Drives and no issues, so what gives!?!?!???? I swear by their products but now, I'm really kind of wondering! This was my Christmas present to myself (kind of early) and now on top of waiting for an amazing price bringing it withing reach, now I have to wait two more weeks for turn around time on a defective drive. MUSHKIN, I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY! MASSIVELY DISAPPOINTED!!!

Manufacturer Response:

Hi, Andy!

Thank you for being a loyal customer over the years!

We apologize for the problems this particular drive is giving you; noone's Christmas gift to themselves should turn out to be a massive disappointment.

With the extremely fast failure experienced on your 480GB-7mm drive, it clearly signifies an anomoly in function. We're eager to get this drive back into our hands and figure out what could have caused it to fail within the first 5 minutes of use.

If you have any issues at all with your return, please do not hesitate to contact us directly:

Support@mushkin.com

Have a Merry Christmas, Andy, and we can assure you there is no need to wonder -- you can still swear by our products!

- Your Mushkin Team
