Mushkin Chronos Deluxe (240GB)


Even here in late 2012, solid-state drives (SSDs) may seem like a relatively esoteric kind of computer upgrade, familiar only to performance enthusiasts and PC builders. But a few companies with some serious name recognition are making SSDs these...

Available in 7mm and 9.3mm thicknesses ; Fast performance in most benchmark tests ; Chronos Deluxe family available in more capacities than most

4K write performance could be better ; No bundled accessories or software with tested 7mm version ; Slightly pricey other "performance-grade" SSDs

Mushkin's high-end drive delivers impressive performance on most benchmarks, as well as thickness and capacity options aplenty. Just know that you'll pay a bit extra for the 7mm models, and don't expect to find software or accessories in the box.

Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 120GB SSD Review


Some companies make a concerted effort to be the first to market with the latest technology and deal with any issues as they pop up while others

While lower priced than many, it still is an expensive drive ; Performance will vary based on data type (compressible vs. incompressible) ; Slight reduction in sequential read speed compared to ONFi 2, 120GB drives ; 160MB+ firmware update packages

The Mushkin Chronos presents us with an interesting and somewhat unique combination of price and performance; a pairing that has been a

Don't buy, horrible service


Very fast

Died after 2,600 hours of operation. Two tickets into Mushkin have gone unanswered. Don't waste your money with a company that doesn't care

Price has almost doubled since purchased. At current price of $248 I would not recommend Got mine for $129.

This drive is very fast. I've been using mine for about 3 months. Still screams speed

New Price

Best Value 240GB SSD


I see an alarming rate of failures & DOA reviews here on NewEgg. It really makes me wonder how many of these people are actually qualified & have the mechnical "know how" to install & properly setup an SSD? I have purchased most all of the major brands...

This SSD is very fast & so far, very reliable. And you can't beat the value for this price!!! Very affordable

No Cons as of yet

Screaming fast drive


Installed as primary boot drive. Boot time under 25 seconds.on my Core2qual. This drive cut minutes off my boot time

This is a screaming fast drive. It reads and write speed is incredible

This little drive has breathed new life into my computer.

Fast, performance in both read and write is beyond expectation

My MB only supports SATA 3.0
