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 Out of all the models listed there are only two worth considering, either because the others were superseded or...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 Nova Series V32 review


If you like the idea of buying an SSD for improved performance, but don't want to empty your bank account to buy one, a small capacity disk such as Corsair's 32GB Nova V32 could be a great compromise. It may not be the fastest SSD around, but should...

Decent performance for a small-capacity SSD, but a 64GB disk is better value overall.

Corsair - Nova V128


Memory manufacturer Corsair lists five distinct lines of SSD (Solid State Drive) that use different controller chips and flash memory. The five types of SSD are the Reactor which uses a JMicron JMF612 controller, the Performance ...

Part of the credit for the performance of the Corsair Nova is doubtless related to the state of the art 34nm Intel flash memory. A larger part can probably be attributed to the firmware for the Indilinx controller chip. The Corsair Nova beats the...

Not for System Drive


I installed this drive as the system drive and put WinXP on it for testing. System was a dual core Pentium running at 3.4 GHz and it had 3.75 GB of RAM. The drive performed slow with annoying lag times. Installing programs onto this drive was slow...

Good for a backup, not OS


Installed it, and at first I thought it was just something with a clean install that didn't take right. But after looking at the Corsair website, avoid using this drive as a system drive. It is slow, lags whenever you install anything, and programs...

Don't use for your OS


I bought this SSD to install Windows 7 64 on to run my new gaming PC (6 core Athlon II). I installed the OS and everything seemed fine, but I noticed that there was greater than usual lag launching programs and multitasking was virtually nonexistent....

Not a great drive


This drive replaced my 80GB EIDE drive that I've owned since 2003. My bootup time is now ATROCIOUS compared to the bootup time with the EIDE. Drive seems to move slow for no real reason: Fresh install of Win7, Office2k10, Norton Security, and very...

Quiet, lightweight, inexpensive

Terrible Device Would Never Buy From This Company Again


I don't typically cheap out on my technology and I sincerely regret not doing diligent research before buying this.

It was cheap

But it was cheap for a reason. The drive fresh out of the box hung up in my computer. At first I thought it was my internet, but as time passed on I noticed my programs were having the same problem. I got so frustrated with the instability of the drive...
