Newegg.ca: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos Deluxe 2.5" 240GB Solid State Drive $164.99 + Cash Back

Newegg: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos Deluxe 240GB SSD
This deal has expired! This deal has expired!

Solid state drives are becoming increasingly popular but if you haven't yet made the jump, Newegg.ca has a good deal on a Mushkin model you might want to consider. Right now, they've put the Mushkin Enhanced Chronos Deluxe 240GB Solid State Drive on sale for $164.99 with $4.99 shipping EARN CASH BACK. On average you're looking to pay an extra $35 for this model so now would be the time to order one if you're looking for a performance boost.

Though not as spacious as regular mechanical drives, solid state models offer much faster read and write times which significantly cut down on loading. We've seen cheaper models on sale but usually only on 60GB, 80GB and 120GB drives. If you don't think you can get by with anything less than 240GB, this is would be a drive to check out. There are over 110 reviews at Newegg too with an average rating of 4/5.

The deal is live now but quantities are limited. Shipping is extra but not a deal breaker.

Don't forget to check out using the green links above to earn Cash Back on your purchase via RedFlagDeals.com.

    • I've had this drive for 9 months now and it's been solid for me...

    • Bought mine for $150 AR from NCIX a few months ago. Speed was good. Last month, it lost all my data on it. Did a reformat, and the drive seems ok.

    • Why would you prefer the Samsung over Mushkin? Reliability, speed, both? From my research I think the Samsungs are known for reliability and the Chronos Deluxe is a faster drive?
      Samsung, Intel and Crucial are more reliable drives from the reviews I read. If your going for Mushkin backup your data so you can sleep easy at night.

      samsung is
      Sequential Read Up to: 540MB/s
      Sequential Write Up to: 240MB/s

      Max Sequential Write Up to 520MB/s

    • The mushkin deluxe is a great drive, we have about two dozen workstations with them installed (summer 2012)... zero failure and performance is fantastic.

    • The Chronos Deluxe, with its toggle NAND, is/was one of the best Sandforce 2281 drives that exists. But the reign of that controller has come to an end, and they've always been plagued with reliability issues.

      However, the Samsung 840 is a much newer/modern controller, and Samsung has a proven track record for reliability. It's also faster than the Chronos Deluxe in just about every metric other than sequential read speed.

      This AT Bench comparison illustrates: (Vertex 3 max iops is virtually identical to Chronos Deluxe--same controller with toggle NAND)

      TLDR: Unless you're paying bargain basement prices, there's no reason to buy a SF2281 drive anymore.

      EDIT: Changed Callisto to Chronos

      which reliability issues? you mean the ones that were remedied with firmware update about 5 updates ago?!
      There is no need to paraphrase websites that are outdated.

    • Using this drive for almost a year now in my main rig with no problems. Even though it's sandforce this particular model doesn't have too much problems (unlike the infamous OCZ's).

      This thread is not about the Callisto Deluxe - that's a generation behind. This thread is about a deal on the Chronos Deluxe.

      Sorry - I meant Chronos Deluxe. I used to own a Callisto, so I am easily confused.

      For the record, I own a Chronos 120GB and it's a good drive, but Sandforce 2281 is no longer a great buy if you're in the market for a new SSD.

      Reliability. Crucial M4, Samsung, Plextor and Intel are the best/most reliable SSD brands available.

    • my corsair sandforce drive has been extremely realible, as much so as my intels before them.
      i just see no real upgrade coming since the sandforce. the +3-10MB/s increase in 4K reads, for a decrease in performance in other places.
      the price coming down now is great. hopefully it results in a real upgrade for competition of the next gen of drives.
      50+ MB/s 4K reads for me to not buy a sandforce at these prices.
      or even better, bring on 200MB/s 4k reads.

      Samsung 840 (not the Pro) uses TLC NAND which isn't as reliable as MLC. Takes more error correction and faster processor to make up the speed on MLC.
