Positioned at the intersection of performance and value, Chronos SSDs provide next-generation SSD responsiveness by utilizing asynchronous NAND Flash technology. Say goodbye to rotational hard drive sluggishness by adding a Chronos SSD to your system today!

• INDUSTRY-LEADING PERFORMANCE
Driven by the second generation of SandForce SSD controller (SF-2281), the Chronos Series is designed and built to unleash the full potential of the 6Gbps SATA III interface. The Chronos pushes the limits in both sequential and random data transfer rates, significantly improving your productivity, gaming, multimedia, and overall computing experience.

• A SUPERIOR PC EXPERIENCE
In addition to maximum performance, a Chronos SSD upgrade promotes cooler, quieter, and more energy efficient conditions compared to traditional mechanical hard drives. With no moving parts, SSDs provide peace of mind with their superior durability and reliability. Chronos series SSDs work in perfect harmony with next generation platforms and operating systems to deliver the ultimate storage solution.

• TRIM SUPPORT
The Chronos Series SSDs offer native TRIM support featured in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. Designed to maintain the performance of SSD at an optimal level over the lifetime of the drive, TRIM functions by actively deleting invalid data from the SSD’s memory cells to ensure that write operations perform at full speed. Since a memory block must be erased before it can be re-programmed, TRIM improves performance by pro-actively erasing pages containing invalid data, allowing the SSD to write new data without first having to perform a time-consuming erase command.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive and cheap!

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

Pros: Fast, small, and it delivers. My average boot on Windows 8 from total power off is about 15-20 seconds. From a sleep state it turns on and is ready to log in before I sit down in my chair. I'd definitely buy another one of these!

Cons: Not a big deal but it is only 120gb which is about 112 or so when plugging it on the first time. Not a problem if you keep that in mind or spend the extra money for a 250.

5 out of 5 eggsFAST

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

Pros: Reliable
FAST
Boots to full GUI in < 1 minute (openSUSE13.1 XFCE Desktop)

Cons: Why didn't I find this before I spent more $$$ on a slower SSD?

Other Thoughts: Bought one of these to build a miniPC for my mother in law. Now her miniPC with a 2-core 1GHz CPU boots in less than 2/3 the time my mid-tower running on a different brand SSD with a 4-core 3.6GHz cpu needs!

I'll DEFINITELY be ordering more of these, and have already placed an order for a few mushkin USB3 sticks!

5 out of 5 eggsGenuinely Impressed AND A NOTE ABOUT REPORTED LOW SPEEDS

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

Pros: Pros -
540 Read/500 Write (ATTO Benchmark)
Easy installation
Windows boots in <5 seconds to desktop with all programs loaded.

Cons: Cons -
It comes with no mounting hardware or cables for desktops.

Other Thoughts: Alright. Well. The reason I'm actually making my review is this. I did experience the reported low data speeds reported in other reviews (about 250 meg read and 80 meg write). The reason for this, however, is not the drive or it seeming to run via Sata 2.0. The real reason is this.

IF YOU ARE HAVING SLOW READ/WRITE SPEEDS, CHECK YOUR BIOS TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE USING AHCI AND NOT IDE.

Swapping after install from IDE to AHCI in my bios DID kill my windows install, so be warned. However, after reinstalling under AHCI, I had the speeds mentioned in the pros of this review.

AGAIN, THE DRIVE IS NOT SLOW. CHECK YOUR INTERFACE SETTINGS.

4 out of 5 eggsWorked well for a while

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

Pros: Quick boot, good transfer speed, no heat or noise, good RMA support, price

Cons: Drive failed after 3 months, started getting no boot drive found message, then it was not found at all in bios.

Other Thoughts: I noticed some issues with it finding the drive a few weeks before it died, restarting always fixed it. It seems it normally had an issue coming out of sleep mode. Did a fresh install of OS and it worked better for a week then totally died. Mushkin support is great (after I found their emails in my junk mail), they were very nice and responsive. I think the whole RMA process took a week (starting the support ticket to receiving my drive). I am very happy with the support, less happy with the drive and hopeful this one does not have the same issue. I am coming from a 60gb chronos deluxe which has had far fewer issues and been running for a few years now. Found this on a good sale, but it seems the non deluxe version is less reliable.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome drive. Awesomer Price.

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

Pros: Price for performance is stellar.
Customer support is even better.
It's an SSD. It's fast, small, and incredible.

Cons: The overall price per GB is still not where regular HDDs are, but that's to be expected, and honestly the only con I can possibly think of right now.

Could have came with a 2.5 to 3.5 bracket (But not including it keeps the price down...)

Other Thoughts: I installed this on a system running SATA II, my benchmarks with ATTO are right around 220 MB/sec on my AMD board which seem to be on par with most SSDs running SATA II.

When I asked about it on the support forums I got a response within -minutes-. This is my first Mushkin product and I am incredibly amazed with it. Had no issues with it whatsoever.

5 out of 5 eggsStill going strong

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

Pros: I've been using two of these for over two years now and they've never so much as hiccupped for me. Half of that time was in a RAID 0 but my motherboard was bottlenecking it, so I finally just split the drives and use one to boot from and the other to compile on.

Cons: Upgrading the firmware can be a pain depending on your BIOS, AHCI can do weird stuff with them when enabled.

Other Thoughts: It sounds like half the people with negative reviews here are either running them as SATA2 or burning out their drives because they didn't set them up properly.

SSDs have a very limited number of times they can be written to so you have to make sure windows doesn't defragment them or use them for your swap. Repeatedly defragmenting an SSD is both pointless and a sure fire way to shorten it's lifespan to well under a year.

5 out of 5 eggsActually impressed

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

Pros: Very fast. I know any SSD is fast than a mechanical, but I would like to say this is just as fast as my 840 EVO.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: Looking to upgrade to an SSD to boot from but don't wanna spend a bunch? Get this.
