 Great, Fast Product by Danny A

After purchasing the 240GB Mushkin Chronos solid state drive, i felt that the packaging was very suitable and the actual drive speed was incredible for only 119 pounds at the time of purchase. the SSD after installing, had very impressing read and write speeds (Maximum Read: 560MB/sec, Maximum Write: 525MB/sec) and overall would recommend the drive as my laptop boot time is 15 seconds and no longer 38 seconds with the old stock WD hard drive.

To conclude, I would definitely recommend the drive to anyone wanting faster boot times and access times for files!
