"The real highlight of the Chronos is its outstanding price. 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."

"Looking over the whole picture, this is one fast drive. Bottlenecks aside, it keeps up with some of the big names in the SSD industry on almost every test. The Chronos really shined during the 4K Write tests, where it was consistently a leader."

"The Chronos line, though, does have an unusual bit of appeal: if you need a drive in a very specific capacity that most other drive makers don't offer. "

"The SSDs from Mushkin Enhanced hardly differ from other products in their speed characteristics. Many other brands offer similar SSDs with the same controllers, memory and firmware. However, there is one special advantage that the Mushkin solutions have. Both the Chronos and the Chronos deluxe turn out to be among the most affordable SSDs in their respective categories. The 240GB Chronos is very close to the psychological barrier of $1 per gigabyte. The Chronos deluxe is good in this respect, too."

"The Mushkin Chronos 60GB SSD still does offer good read and write performance for its price, especially when compared to mechanical drives. [...] In the end I'd say that the Mushkin Chronos is a decent SSD, and well worth its cost.."

"The Chronos deluxe is slower than the Intel, yet also delivers high performance. It finds itself among the leaders in some scenarios such as compilation or search. The ordinary Chronos is not so fast, but it is not supposed to set any performance records. Its advantage is in its price rather than speed."
