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...

Keep in mind that your motherboard and the ports also plays a role in speed. I have 6 black sata ports that only run at 200mb~ while my 2 white sata ports run it at 500mb+

Extremely Fast! Windows loads up in seconds. The moment I see the windows logo on boot, it takes 3 seconds before it gets into windows ; Speed is as advertised. 500+ on atto benchmarks ; Got it on sale for 69.99

There are better SSD's if this isn't on sale. Other than that, no cons so far

Truly worth it


I just like Mushkin Enhanced SSDs. I had Kingston, Sandisk Extrem, OCZ and HyperX before but Mushking Enhanced Chronos is just great. Price is right on, performance is there, balanced in R/W, Random 4k IOPS are good. Install flawlessly with Win7-8 no...

Great for the $$


Mushkin had no problems sending replacement. No questions asked. Was delivered very fast. Great RMA. Not refurbished. I will likely buy another to try RAID0 with the one I have now. Definitely recommend this to anyone on a budget.

Got my fist one over two years ago. No problems. Got it on sale for something like $70. Chose this drive for it's read/write speeds compared to others at the time. Drive is very fast and stable. My replacement hasn't missed a beat after OS installs on...

First drive lasted under a year. Swapped it from an AM3+ build to an AM3 for hardware testing. Win7 booted up, auto installed all drives for other rig, worked fine. Put it back in the build it came out of, bios booted, Win7 booted... stalled. Wouldn't...

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

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...
