Using as an audio drive in Sonar. Has worked flawlessly in the 2+ years I have been using it.

Great drive. No problems in in 2+ years

None

Nice drive

 

Did fresh install of win 7 -64bit. At first it seemed the install was going slow but after 25 minutes all was OK. Boot time decreased to 20 seconds from power on to desktop instead of 1min 20 secs.

Bought refurbished unit - somewhat cheaper .... works like a champ once you tweak a few settings

didn't install itself

So far so good

 

No problems with the speed of the drive. Worked as I'd hoped. Though with HDD/SSD you won't really know for awhile if it lasts

none

DO NOT BUY

 

Corsair should be ashamed of themselves for selling this product and continuing to sell it even after all these issues have been posted.

Worked great for 2 months

After 3 months the drive started to lock up. I've investigated the Corsair forums and it is a KNOWN PROBLEM that seems to have no fix. You will get I/O errors. It WILL get worse over time. It will eventually get to the point where you will have a...

Quality

 

I used HD Tune for my read speeds and they were: Minimum - 119.4 MB/s Maximum - 397.1 MB/s Average - 326.0 MB/s Access Time - 0.091 ms Burst Rate - 338.6 MB/s CPU Usage - 3.4%

Installed with no troubles what so ever. The 3.5" adapter plate worked perfectly. I'm using a LIAN LI K60B case, Biostar TZ77XE4, and Ivy Bridge i7-3770. Installed Windows 7 Professional and there wasn't a single hiccup ; This is my first experience...

I do notice a tiny hangup when I first resume back from a long idle period but it's brief - probably me just expecting the lighting fast speeds I've grown accustomed to with this thing

Fail - frequent 60 sec hangs, some crashes

 

Most of the time, the freeze stops everything for 60 seconds, but if I don't get the kernel inpage crash, then progress resumes after the freeze. The freezes have been frequent, the crashes have not. This old laptop doesn't do AHCI, so I don't know if...

Got it for a good price, promised to be a sizzling replacement for the slow thing in my wife's laptop. And I have to do a clean install anyway due to messed up software, so I can start fresh ; Popped it right into the system and it was recognized by...

FAIL, plain and simple. Heavy write traffic causes the drive to freeze up for 60 seconds at a time, and it's getting worse as I install more. First noticed it about an hour into an install, where the 100+ windows updates would hang. And eventually got...

Bios doesn't not always recognize

 

I like Corsair products, but I would NOT buy one of these drives. Note that my client did not buy this from Newegg. Newegg is the best, been buying here for many years.

New install on a clients top notch machine. Transferred all data (a LOT) Worked great for 2 days

After 2 days, started having reliability issues (super slow), figured it was just Windows updates. Finally refused to boot. Walked client (over phone - 150 miles away) through bios and found the drive was not selected as boot drive. Reselected (bios...

Super fast! Have one in my own computer and another in the Fiance's. Never had any problems, 7.9 on WE right out of the box after turning AHCI on

SSDs are still expensive for the size, keep a TB or so for space
