Corsair Nova Series V128 128GB SSD


Over the past six months, Corsair has been phasing out its older SSD line-up and replacing it with new series' with catchier names, such as Reactor, Force and Nova. The latter is what we're taking a look at here. The goal of the Nova series is to offer...

On the first page, we spent quite a few words on exploring the various model SSDs Corsair sells on the market, and for one simple reason. Out of all the models listed there are only two worth considering, either because the others were superseded or...

Corsair V128 Nova Review
