Reviews Word on the street for the Mushkin Chronos

Like most recent SSDs, the Mushkin Chronos uses the SATA 6 Gbps interface.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


We can clearly see the lack of flash channels affecting throughput.

8.3Based on our performance results, it is clear that the Mushkin Chronos 240 GB will not set any performance records.

25% might sound like a lot, but it is not, especially if upgrading from a mechanical hard drive that is many times slower.

The 240 GB version can be yours for just $165, which turns into a price per Gigabyte of below 70 cents, making it one of the most affordable SSDs on the market right now.

You can see the solder pads for additional chips, but my guess is the drive's whole capacity has been consolidated into four chips to reduce cost.

This is most evident with pure throughput benchmarks, but random performance will also be reduced.
