Reviews Word on the street for the Mushkin Chronos GO


8.0
The drive's list price is about $329—significantly higher than you'd pay for a standard 2.5-inch SSD.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Performance

The TLC NAND Samsung uses for its budget drive offers lower write performance than the MLC NAND Mushkin uses for both Chronos drives.

SSDs are one of the most effective means of improving system performance on the market, and even older systems can benefit from the acceleration.
by PCMag (Jul, 2013)
Performance was strictly mediocre, even compared to other spinning disks.

Interface

Since the Asus and Gigabyte board use the same chipset and we used the Intel SATA controllers on each, there should be no problem with comparing results.

The mSATA connector is physically different from a SATA cable and integrates power and data into a single cord rather than two separate connectors.
