was fast , good upgrade from HDD

after 2 years of regular to light use, it is now failing and causing windows to have warning of impending doom.This is not the reliability that I have come to expect from Corsair.This is the first of 2 drives that I have bought , and I am now looking...

Died after 14 months


Worked great while it lasted

After 14 months, started getting intermittent boot errors for about a week and then failed completely. Definitely a problem with the corsair since a replacement ssd works fine

Lasted a little longer than a year


Wouldn't recommend getting this product if you are going to store important stuff on it, as it may fail unexpectedly sooner than you think.

Fast, lightweight, and worked well when it actually worked

Pricey. Purchased last June (it's October now), and it is starting to fail. Occasionally failing to boot on start-up, computer starts stuttering up when loading. For the price, I expected more

Still Going After a year


Still working great after a few years. Had a couple times where I had boot issues and had to do a boot repair and one of those times it found bad sectors

Not flawless, but not bad either

Failed in about a year


After using both OCZ and Samsung SSD's for customers to install as the Windows boot drive, I was happy with SSD performance and reliability. So I decided to try the Corsair line as I like other Corsair products. So this one began locking up the...


Unreliable, premature failure

Excellent Drive So Far


This was a great upgrade for me. I was previously using a Kingston 64GB SSD and couldn't even install Windows 7 for fear of not being able to fit everything else I wanted due to the large size of the operating system. That isn't a problem now. It's...

Not much of a con, but it sometimes makes a bit of noise, while I thought it was supposed to be completely silent. I don't really care though, just thought I'd mention it. It is still silent 99% of the time

Crashed After 1 Power Outage


Going to try for a warranty claim since this has 5 years and the drive was purchased in 2013. Did I forget to mention that? The drive is less than a year old and failed after one measly power outage (no other hardware affected all over the house in...

When it worked, it was fast

Crpped out and won't turn on at all after one measly power outage. No other hardware failed, just the SSD. This Neutron SSD had my OS and all my applications on it, so thankfully not much was lost. Then again, this is supposed to be a reliable SSD, and...

first SSD


This is a nicely sized little drive. Installed Windows 7 on it in my gaming rig. Boots really quick, less than a minute and you're up and running

I've had no problems with it so far
