1 out of 5 eggsDead

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR120GB-7 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: It was cheap, however not it's worthless and will probably cost me money and time.

Cons: Dead after only a few months of use. Run... as fast as you can, RUN! Don't buy this, buy a Kingston drive instead. This SSD is completely dead after only a few months of use. Like many others my computer only sees the 'SandForce' controller now and nothing else. I'm sure I will get it replaced under warranty, but it seems like these will continue to fail.

1 out of 5 eggsLost me as a customer.

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR120GB-7 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: It is an ssd.

Cons: Dead after 3 years and 2 months, 2 months out of warranty with no moving parts and they won't help. Switched to Intel. Immediately got advertised speeds. The issues I have had with Mushkin ssd drives, is not worth the competetive pricing that they have. I would much rather pay a pinch more and feel comfortable and that can care about a customer enough to extend a warranty 2 months out. I was super nice when I called, but it wasn't getting me anywhere when I kept trying. I left with integrity and a nice manner. I was the dummy for buying their stuff.

Other Thoughts: Below the advertised speeds, Intel is way faster and the reliability is much higher. You can find that out for yourself. Mushkin slaps some parts onto an outside brought in controller and wont RMA even 2 months after the expiration, for an SSD Drive when management was contacted above customer service. I have had a Mushkin drive not function under 60F room temperature, and you can find that out searching online, that I was not the only person with that issue.

2 out of 5 eggsAwesome drive when it works

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR120GB-7 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: The drives preform well enough.

Cons: I bought two of these drives about six months ago. Within two months both of them failed. I went through the RMA process and I've had the new drives in for about two months now. I just had one of the replacement drives throw a SMART error, so Mushkin is replacing it again. Looking at the other drive, it has dropped almost 20% life. At this rate that drive will fail in about 8 months, or 10 months after installation.

Other Thoughts: I've used Mushkin RAM before and I was happy with it. This was my first (and last) try at their SSDs.

2 out of 5 eggsIt died

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR120GB-7 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: It was fast when it was working. Easy to set up. It was exactly what you wanted out of an SSD, except for the whole dying part.

Cons: I bought it on February 27 and it died yesterday, June 8. Totally unexpectedly with no warning. My computer does not even see a connected drive anymore. It will not boot and all of my data is lost (luckily there was nothing important).

5 out of 5 eggsGood as expected

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR120GB-7 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: SSD, so a lot fastest than HDD.

Cons: Not especially.
Just 128GB :)

Other Thoughts: Good by price.
Be smart, use SSD to system and a external disk to storage.

1 out of 5 eggsThe 2nd one is dead now also

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR120GB-7 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: At this point nothing,

Cons: the drive is junk I purchased on 2/26/2015 2 both dead May...

Other Thoughts: although Mushkin is replacing the drives, I am not going to use them. I was thinking about selling them, but I would feel guilty knowing someone would be going through what I did.

I would like you to back your drives and take them back for a full refund please.

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR120GB-7 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: worked for a little while

Cons: didn't work anymore after a restart. my experience tells me to just buy another brand and not keep swapping the drives to the end of the warranty...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat OS drive

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR120GB-7 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Still alive and chugging over a year later as my primary OS drive.

I've put it through multiple formats and OS installs, and takes everything in stride.

I think it performs faster than the speeds its rated for, never had to update firmware.

Cons: none that I found

Other Thoughts: Paired with a Gigabyte G1.Sniper Z5S mobo, and this little guy really flies. Boot time from cold into Windows 7 about 15 seconds, even after a year of use.

Things to remember when using SSD as OS.
1) Make sure AHCI mode is set in BIOS
2) If possible, set pagefile.sys to another drive
3) Disable hiberfil.sys to save space
4) Disable superfetch
5) Set Temp and TMP folders to a different drive
6) Disable Windows System Protection

This will ensure any SSD a long and healthy life.
