Great SSD


Speed ; Stability ; I purchased this for a new build in Feb '12 and have had 0 problems since then. 8 months solid performance and stability ; I installed Win7 easily and quickly, have filled the hard drive to only 30GB free with no slowdown like...

Cost ; For the price, there are other SSDs in the same category and better for much cheaper. Anymore, SSD pricing is very close to and under the 1/1 for $/GB ; Though I recommend it for my experience, I would suggest shopping for better pricing

Great SSD


Corsair is a great company that backs their products.

Installed this in my new laptop. Everything worked great and was easy to setup. Computer boots and has all startup programs loaded within 15 seconds(antivirus, drivers etc.). Which is a major improvement over the HDD that was in it. Great price for the...

So far so good.

Works straight out of the box. It loads the computer in about 3 seconds

The adapter isn't very good. I couldn't put the ssd on the adapter to go in the hot swap sata drive of my Corsair 800D case

Corsair Force Series 3 CSSD-F240GB3-BK 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)


I have seen that Corsair makes acceptable drives and i have used their memory for years, but this is a terrible product. Please buy something else. From the reviews, it seems about 50% success rate. I have apparently gotten the 'broken' choice twice in...

This drive is very fast. I was able to copy files from my file server to my laptop over gigabit ethernet at speeds over 100MB/s. My desktop with a 15K RPM SAS drive cannot come anywhere close to that. This is my first SSD for personal use and i am very...

I am on my second drive. No advanced replacement. I have to pay shipping to get it there. The RMA portal at Corsair is not updated properly. My new drive is also failing. This drive is absolutely junk. My first one worked 'well enough' that now i am...

What I expected


ASUS P6X58D Premium MBO Corsair Dominator 12GB EVGA GTX470 Corsair 240GB SSD

Well built, easy installation, sufficient documentation. I did receive the stated data transfer rates

My Experience with Corsair RMA


If you need to RMA your SSD, call them a day after you submit the request online, otherwise it will take a longer time to get a replacement. Phone support was great. I spoke with a tech who escalated the request and emailed me a prepaid UPS return...

No questions asked replacement of the defective product. Free shipping both ways. Very latest drive with the latest firmware received

Time waiting for the replacement. Time spent to re-install the hardware, OS and programs. Failure of the first drive keeps me edgy and somewhat distrustful towards the Corsair SSD

7.9 Windows Experience Index


I ALWAYS read ALL of the 1 to 3 egg ratings before I buy anything. There were quite a few issues with BSOD. My only thought is about the rest of the systems components. Nobody mentioned what gear they were using this with. Just maybe, it is not...

Only running for 3 days now, but unbelievably fast! One-third boot time of the 10,000 RPM WD Velocirator it replaced. Comes with 5 year manufacturer's warranty, and up to 2 more years of optional extended warranty

Only the price. Even on sale it was expensive! So all you can ask is that it performs as advertised. If you get what you paid for price isn't an issue either

Another Blue Screen experience


Judging from the disk activity light, the computer thinks the SSD is taking multiple seconds to respond (the light is on solid just before the crash). I don't have time to help Corsair complete the testing and debug of their product so it's going back....

They are as fast as people say - I've never seen windows install so fast

The blue screens started as soon as the W7 install was complete, and came every few minutes as I was installing the other software after windows. My SSD came from the factory with the latest (V1.3.3) firmware installed - the one thats supposed to have...
