4 out of 5 eggsGood drive

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

Pros: Works as designed runs at speeds stated so much faster than a regular hdd and faster than a wd raptor by quite a bit you can make even a budget low dollar pc with this drive

Cons: After 2-3 weeks got a windows pop up telling me to back up my drive that it was failing did some research found that there was a flash update for the drive downloaded it and flashed the drive did not work

Other Thoughts: Contacted Mushkin because was 3 days over a month so could not return to newegg explained what happened they rma'd the drive immediately I sent it off waiting for new one now is a good drive not scared to continue to use this brand they gave me good service and have good products

5 out of 5 eggsSolid... heh

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

Pros: Quick.
Good quality.
Competitively priced.

Cons: None really.

Other Thoughts: This (and the 240 GB variety of Mushkin) goes on sale regularly, it would seem.
SandForce, from a quick search, appears to be a respected memory controller company.
I was slightly concerned when I first bought this Mushkin SSD, but so far I would highly recommend Mushkin.

5 out of 5 eggsTurned my machine into a rocket sled

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

Pros: Stunningly fast, easy to install

Cons: Not a single one!

Other Thoughts: Boot time with 64-bit Win 8.1 Pro is less than 10 seconds. This is in a core i7 quad core w/ 8gb RAM. It used to take a couple of minutes to boot, and performance was disappointing with everyday tasks, such as loading web pages or downloading large files. Little did I know it was the 5,400 RPM hard drive that was the dog.

I performed a clean install on the new drive (which the BIOS immediately recognized and accepted). Windows installed surprising fast (guess why!). I'm p,retty sure I gasped audibly when it booted into Windows almost immediately. My 17.3" laptop is now my favorite machine, even though it's pretty heavy. If you're frustrated with poor performance and slow load times, switch to an SSD....you'll be amazed.

5 out of 5 eggsCheap, Quick, and to the point

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

Pros: Quick enough
Great price, especially for a large capacity drive
Great way to speed up a budget build

Cons: Not the fastest drive on the market, but still more than fast enough

Other Thoughts: Just needed to replace an SSD in a build I did for my parents a long time ago. The larger capacity should give them more room and it is faster than their older drive as well so that is a bonus!

Pros: Price was good, performance was great compared to stock hard drive

Cons: Died after just a few months

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.

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!
