1 out of 5 eggs2nd Corsair SSD, seconnd failure

This review is from: Corsair Force Series GS CSSD-F240GBGS-BK 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast

Cons: Unreliable

Other Thoughts: 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 calls from the first customer I set one of these up for, and they were having lockups. So I've been wondering about this one. Well, today it died a painful death, and we cannot boot this computer. BIOS won't see it, my laptop won't see it as a USB drive (with connector). As I write this, I'm praying that a mirror restore will work to a standard hard drive for this customer. I've setup an RMA, but it will do me no good as I now have no confidence in these drives and will not even consider putting the replacement back into production. I've bought OCZ and Samsung SSD's for customers, and those are all working fine, and are over a year old. Neither of these Corsairs are over one year old. Stay away. I really like Corsair's products over all, but will NEVER buy another SSD from them again.

1 out of 5 eggsUnreliable

This review is from: Corsair Force Series GS CSSD-F240GBGS-BK 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

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

Cons: 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 up to a bunch of times. Obviously a sign of a failing drive. I have 13 PC's all with Kingston hyperx 240's in em and they hum along no problem for the last 1.5 years. Im so dissappointed in this SSD. The first time i stray away from what works and i buy a poor product.

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

1 out of 5 eggs13.1 GB I ordered 240..?

This review is from: Corsair Force Series GS CSSD-F240GBGS-BK 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: it connected really easy....

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

Other Thoughts: 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...

4 out of 5 eggsGood boot SSD

This review is from: Corsair Force Series GS CSSD-F240GBGS-BK 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: 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.

Cons: 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. if i re-did it i might have gotten a high speed 500gb mechanical drive.

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

4 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD at this price

This review is from: Corsair Force Series GS CSSD-F240GBGS-BK 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: 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 to 7.3. Battlefield 4 maps load seemingly instantly. Very happy

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

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

This review is from: Corsair Force Series GS CSSD-F240GBGS-BK 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I loved this drive as it was fast and the price was great as I caught a sale.

Cons: It died after 1 1/2 years of use and though it is still covered by warranty for the last week I've been waiting for Corsair to respond to my service ticket.
