2 out of 5 eggsWas great for the price... at first.

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

Pros: Cheap
Good value per GB
Easy Setup

Cons: Not many features beyond TRIM support
Rather slow compared to newer SSDs
Died on me while I was involved in a project.

Other Thoughts: I was given the money to purchase this as a gift for myself for Christmas 2014. It lasted only 1 year before becoming non bootable. After researching the issue it appeared to be a well known issue with the sandforce controllers. All the positive reviews I saw turned sharply negative in the months before mine died. The customer support agent recovering the disk (and, it appears, updating the firmware to hopefully avoid this again) is the only reason this SSD is even ranking at 2 anymore. I don't trust the drive anymore with my OS or any important files, instead opting to use it as nothing but STEAM storage now. I would not buy another Mushkin product for anything other than strictly disposable storage.

1 out of 5 eggsDied before a year.

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

Pros: It was very good when it worked. Very quick.

Cons: Died before a year with very light use. Computer is off most of the time. I occasionally play games and would mostly stream. It only had the OS loaded on it.

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend buying this. It was very cheap but you do get what you pay for. . .

Pros: Affordable

2 out of 5 eggsOne failure, replacement unit still alive

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

Pros: Mushkin replaced my first defective unit without hassle. The drive is not the fastest, but it's a good value for the price.

Cons: First unit failed after 4 months. The SMART "SSD Life Remaining" value dropped from 100 to 70 in a few months, where my "Deluxe" 240GB Chronos is 17,000 hours old and is still at 98% life.

Mushkin's replacement unit is still doing OK, but it is also losing "life" faster than the Deluxe Chronos. This non-deluxe 120GB is down to 96% life after 4,500 hours.

Other Thoughts: Two non-deluxe units degrading much faster than the deluxe unit, proof that there is a difference!
In the real world, this is still a good drive for the $$ but if you are working with serious I/O-intensive workloads like virtualization or video editing, then this drive won't last as long as the Deluxe.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked well, but only lasted a year.

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

Pros: I really liked this SSD hard drive but it didn't last long.

Cons: Expected longer life from a hard drive but sometimes they just fail. The one I replaced it with is from ADATA and has a 3 yr warranty with a cheaper price. $44.00.

Other Thoughts: compact and easy to install, quiet operation, and super fast. I would probably buy another but stick with a major brand.

1 out of 5 eggsDo any of these survive more than a week?

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

Pros: Maybe price, but if none of them work for more than a week, that's not much of a pro.

Mushkin SSD's make great paperweights.

Cons: This was the second MKNSSDCR120GB-7 that succumbed to a very young death. First one died in the first week of use. It's replacement died even younger, after just a few hours of use. 0 for 2.

Over the last four years, I have installed dozens of SSD's from 120GB to 250GB from Samsung, Intel, and Crucial in various PC's and they're all still alive and still in heavy use.

Other Thoughts: I can remember when Mushkin made the best memory modules on the market. Looks like that experience has failed to translated over to SSD's.

My advice, even if Mushkin gives these away for the cost of shipping, go with a Samsung, Intel, or Crucial instead.
