Another one bites the dust


Can't afford to waste my time reinstalling Win 7...throwin in the towel...going back to a mechanical drive.

Fast when working

All three drives have given me trouble ; Running Windows 7 and other software on drive 40 plus hours a week in business setting

Updating The Lives Fast Dies Young Review


I am very hopeful that 3rd time is the charm. Newegg rocks!

RMA even less painful. Called and Corsair is advance shipping a 3rd drive and prepaid return shipping label

New drive is only 120gb. This is the 2nd failure. 2nd drive was same CSSD-P3128GB2-BRKT lasted 2 weeks then lost files, lockups

not pleased


I am not sure if I will take a chance on another corsair SSD in the future. To only last about 6 months is unacceptable. Luckily I keep all data on my NAS so I just have to reload the OS. Just setting up Arch Linux can be a long process.

Fast! Corsair RMA process is a very painless process

The 1st one I owned died after 6 months. That replacement lasted about 5 months. I just received my 2nd replacement today and they replaced it with a different model. At...

Lives Fast, Dies Young


Had the 1st drive not failed this review would be 5 eggs. I will never go without an SSD again.

Very Fast drive. I have a physical disk for storage, the SSD is the perfect size for OS, MS Office and a number of games. RMA process is not too painfull

died after 5 months of casual use. RMA process is OK but poor communication. Today I received notice from UPS the replacement is being shipped. It was delivered to Corsair on the 01/06/2012 and its scheduled for deliver on the 01/16/2012. Still no...

Really, REALLY want to buy another one of these!!!(HINT HINT). My spec's MSI P67-G45-B3, i72600K@5123 on air, 2X6950's, Corsair Dominator1600=26690 in PC Mark05:) Enjoy!

Read and writes are on spec with advertised speeds, after four months tested with ATTO, speeds are better than when I first set it up. Nice tray that comes with the SSD, makes it easy to find a place to store it. I bought Corsair as the other name...

OUT OF STOCK ; I just signed in to buy another, I bought one to pair up eventually. Now considering selling this as I need two

Fast but prone to failure


I thought I might have some trouble RMA'ing the replacement drive, but Corsair's support was a pleasure to deal with and handled the situation very appropriately. Kudos out to their Customer Support department! Bottom line, skip over this drive and...

Definitely is fast. I was sadly limiting this baby to a SATA II controller, but it still blows mechanical drives by without a doubt. Good Customer support, Corsair

First 3 months, everything was fine. Then time for RMA as it got stuck reading or writing on certain blocks. Ok no big, RMA comes in, 6 months later everything is A OK, but then the same thing happens

Not worth it


Requested RMA but wish I could request money back.

Somewhat high speed .. not a whole lot faster then a typical hard drive

Worked fine for 4 months then started to show signs of failure. Random application freezes and extremely slow boot-up times (5-6 minutes just to display desktop). Thought maybe it was the computer so I loaded the SSD into another machine. Took Win7...

FAST when it works

THREE RMAs in less than a year!! I love the promise of SSD, disk performance has long been the bottleneck on PC boot time and app load time. I'm scared now and very leery of using an SSD, it has always seemed to die under very hi I/O load. Casual use...

Have had mine in use for over two months now with no issues. Installation went without a glitch, included mounting bracket was greatly appreciated, no firmware issues and sub 15 second boot times with Win 7 Pro 64. WEI 7.9

None yet (and hopefully stays that way)
