Failed after 7 months

 

I ordered an Intel drive , I hope this one last more than 7 months

was good when it worked

luckily I backed up my drive regularly. And had a mirrored drive just incase this one failed, which it did

Very solid/reliable performing Drive

 

I believe these drives are the upper class of most SSD on the market, my customers love them ( most of them high end gamers) My customers can install and be playing games much quicker than any system using a mechanical Drive. Make sure you set up you...

Very fast drive, easy to install, small footprint, no heat, No noise

Price, considering there are no moving parts to manufacture one would think ( common sense) that after the research and development is done and the final product goes to base assembly these units would be much cheaper than mechanical drives. I guess we...

When it works it works well

Stopped working completely after about 2 weeks... Luckily I was able to contact the manufacturer and they were reasonably willing to replace it. The replacement has been working fine for the last year and a half

2nd Corsair SSD, seconnd failure

 

OK, so this is my second Corsair hard drive purchase for a customer. This one was installed into a high-end Dell Precision as the C: drive/OS drive, and a standard hard drive was setup for the D: or data drive. After I had installed this one, I got...

Unreliable

 

Expected so much more from a company like Corsair. This drive will hurt their reputation.

Its a ssd so if your buying one you know they all work pretty quick. This one was no different and very fast

So ive had it for about 4 months now i think and its starting not to be recognized by my PC. The only way i can get it to reconnect is to keep restarting in the hope it will eventually connect. It does to after very random amount of times. From once to...

13.1 GB I ordered 240..?

 

really annoying when you think you're about to upgrade your HD and you find out this disc is unreliable right out of the package... a little worried for the long hall on this one...

it connected really easy

Really??? 240GB was not even registering.... 13.1 gigs is what the computer is saying this drives capacity is

Good boot SSD

 

still expensive for how much storage you get. if this was 500gb for this price id say must buy.

It worked with no issues, fast, came with a adapter for desktop installation ; I got a $20 or so rebate with it but Ive yet to see if it will come through, says up to 21 days before I will know anything

For my uses i think i could have gotten a 500gd high speed mechanical drive for about the same price, not a huge mistake since i think ssd is a little faster, but only having 250gb as a boot drive means most games and media end up on my storage drive....

Great SSD at this price

 

great buy as a shellshocker daily deal. Keep an eye out for those you can save up to a hundred bucks.

Normal boot mode plus time to login and launch all taskbar apps and firefox was only 15 seconds. Way better than my usual time of about 4 minutes with a 7500 rpm standard HD. Everything feels snappier and crisp. Windows experience for HD went from 5.5...

seemed kinda hard to intialize. Kept disappearing. Once I unplugged the power connector and plugged it back in it popped right up

great, but not durable

 

Fast

Starting to fail to boot after 5 months. It's in a laptop...I have to disconnect/connect the battery to boot about every other time ; OS says media failed test
