I recently purchased a 120gb Chronos Ssd last week and it lasted for like 5 days and than I took it back yesterday got a new one and bought windows 7 since I was still running Vista. I was playing Tera Online and the game froze and now it isn't recognizable in bios, same thing as last time.


Is Mushkin just that bad of a brand or am I having bad luck?
 
I bought a 120GB Chronos Deluxe about a year ago and it's been running great since. I bought a 240GB Chronos Deluxe a couple of months ago and it was failing when under heavy writes. Updating the firmware to the latest sandforce version (5.0.2) did not help. Newegg reviews show a lot of people having the same issue with the 240 within a small timeframe so my guess is that there was a bad batch

Mushkin products are generally known for being borderline indestructible, this is unusual for them
