Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 120GB MKNSSDCR120GB-DX


The Mushkin 120GB Chronos Deluxe is another great SSD option for cost-conscious buyers.

Great price/performance ratio. Supports SATA 6G

Older SF-2281 loses speed in random read/writes, uncompressed data

This is shaping up to be a banner year for SSD adoption. The Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S3D7 we reviewed recently won accolades for an excellent price/performance ratio, but the Mushkin 120GB Chronos Deluxe ($105 list) aims to challenge Kingston...

Great Speed! Better Price!


I've owned three other SSDs since this one and still can't see a difference. Amazingly fast and cheap



Consumer review by:

Been through 3 of these in 3 computers, giving up.


Speed is pretty good. Brackets seem to be solid and mounting is ok

I've had this drive for a little over a year. It had died on my three times. The first time was in my friend's brand new computer. We sent it back and got a new drive. Then it was in my computer. It died. We sent it back and got a new one. Finally it...

a SSD for you and me


Ordering a second 120GB for my Steam folder or perhaps a 240GB and reporpuse my 120 for 'games/apps'. Either way it's all-win.

Affordable ; Sleek design ; SSD

None ; 2years+, still flawless

lifespan 1 yr 3 months

Consumer review by:

Drive failed.


Loaded fast before failing

The drive failed in just a little over 2 years with very light use, SSD not being detected in bios. Life of the product was too short in my opinion. Did contact Mushkin through the website, sent copy of the purchase invoice, thinking they give a 3 year...

Assembled in the USA


it's pretty cool to buy such a nice product that was assembled in the USA.

Fast ; assembled in the USA

Needs firmware upgrades

Fast drive


So far, so good. Time will tell.

I wanted to get the least-expensive fast 120 GB SSD I could find for my money. I was not disappointed. This SSD gets 7.9 on the WEI (Windows Experience Index) and while that's not as accurate as CrystalDiskmark or some of the other performance...

Note that Muskin seems to have two identical drives - note that one is 9.5mm in width and the other 7mm, important for those who may be putting it in a laptop or some other thickness-limited location

Nothing I've done will bring this thing back, still under warranty but not sending them an HD full of personal info. Looked online and lots of people have same problem, in contrast I still have most of the plate HHDs I've ever bought, one died a month...

Small form, shock proof

Died just like that! Speed not noticeable faster than SATA HDs. Low space. Expensive

This ssd has been great


I have two SSD's installed, this and an OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS and this SSD is the faster of the two. I have had it as my primary boot drive since November of 2011. I saw all the negative reviews for this product, and felt like I should put in my two...

This SSD has worked flawless since November 2011. This SSD was the best upgrade i ever had for day to day use

I have had zero problems with this SSD
