Experience: 4 Months


Fast, solid, and well priced.
None so far.
The Chronos Deluxe 240GB SSD is an excellent product. It's very fast and is typically well priced for what it brings.

There are rumours that Mushkin drives are low quality, but I haven't had any problems with these thus far. Good stuff.

I purchased this as an upgrade to my old Intel SSD, and it has made a difference. Not quite as high end as the new Intel stuff, but much more reasonable on the wallet.

Boots like the wind.

Price, performance, reliability, features
This was my second Chronos, the first was a 480gb model. Loved it so I bought this one for a friends build. For the price, this is one of the best SSD and I've used Samsung 840 pro, Crucial, Kingston, Adata, OCZ, and SanDisk. I would buy Chronos again.

Experience: 9 Months


Price, Speed, Capacity, Technology
Reliability! SATA connector does not latch firmly like other drives. PCB seems to move/flex slightly near connectors.
I have had my drive for several months and it seems really good. I have not had any problems. The speed is great. The price/value was also very competitive. Overall, a very good SSD for the money.

EDIT - My drive failed two days after submitting this review. After ~6 months of use, the drive now disappears from the system, mid-boot. Apparently this is a common problem for Sandforce based SSD's and this drive is no exception. Removed a star from rating for poor reliability. This review was modfied by poster z 02-15-14 12:30 PM

EDIT - Failed drive RMA'd and returned, but took several weeks. Replacement drive has a big scratch on the case. After 4-6 weeks of use, the replacement drive is showing signs of serious problems, file corruption. The performance is good, but the reliability is quite poor. I recommend staying away from this drive, if not Mushkin SSD's altogether. Disappointing.

Fast , SF-2281
Died unexpectedly , SSD updater method is anachronistic
While the brand is good it appears that this Mushkin SSD has somewhat of a QC/QA problem as many reviews on the web will say this product fails within months and even less time. I had experienced the same with this ssd and will be returning it for a refund. In this case I insured myself with the NCIX Express Exchange on this item as I was unsure of this SSD's quality. It's fast when it works and provides great performance but to have an SSD die out of nowhere (and this is the first ssd I've owned out of others to do this) is unfortunate and appears to be a defect perhaps during manufacturing.

It doesn't say I am a verified owner on this review because it is not a web order but rather bought from store.

Experience: 1 Months


Fast, Well Built, Good Reputation
Nothing yet
This works great, My First SSD using as a boot drive and everythign installed super fast and has been running no problem at all so far.

Experience: 5 Months


Fast boot up

Bought for $180 to try as my first SSD drive. I'm very happy with the boost in speed compared to my old Western Digital black setup.

The best part is there' no noise. It's nice not listening to hard drive vibration through my metal case.

Experience: 1 Weeks


Good deal when on sale
I based my purchase on Mushkin reputation and the perceived "made in USA" quality, but the first drive is Dead On Arrival !
Granted, NCIX is fast in sending a replacement, but I'm still out of pocket almost 20 bucks to ship the dead drive back. That eats up almost all of the savings on the special price and leaves quite a bitter taste in the mouth. I strongly feel that in cases of DOA products, NCIX should pay for all the shipping costs and charge back the manufacturer. After all, it's not the customers' fault if they are sent a dud !!
