Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 120GB & Chronos 240GB SSD Review

Rating: 8.0.

Today we are looking at two Solid State drives from Mushkin, the Chronos Deluxe 120GB and the Chronos 240GB. Both drives use the Sandforce 2281 controller, however the 120GB ‘Deluxe’ model uses expensive 3Xnm Toshiba Toggle Mode Flash.

Both drives are competitively priced in the United Kingdom today, however you pay a premium for the 120GB Deluxe model, it costs £143.99 inc vat from Aria, while the 240GB is only around £15 more expensive, at £159.95 inc vat.

Much of the additional cost is due to the higher grade NAND memory which should give better incompressible data performance. We will look at this later in the review.

    Excellent price for the 240GB drive, under 150 is excellent. why the sudden drop in price for all SSDs lately?

  • Doug

    So many sandforce drives out now, id just go for the cheapest. which right now seems to be the 240GB on OCUK for £139.

  • Jerry Banner

    thats a detailed review. I think id go for the vertex 4, but I noticed the 128GB drive is slower than the 512gb you reviewed a while ago. I dont think that was pointed out too clearly.
