5 out of 5 eggsread write speed incorrect

Pros: -Incorrect product description, see "Other thoughts".

Cons: --Incorrect product description, see "Other thoughts".

Other Thoughts: The read write speeds in the description of this drive (as listed on 9-13-10: 220 read - 135 write) are incorrect. those are the specs for the 64GB drive. per the Corsaire website the 32GB driv is 210 read - 100 write. you can see for your self by clicking the "Manufacturer's Product Page" link on the "Details" tab of Newegg's description page.

Pros: Double performance test of system w/5400 rpm SATA HD. Perfect for my low end Shuttle w/100w PS. Oneday shipping from Newegg (free with this order).

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: You might find slightly cheaper prices, but not better service from other than Newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsBlah

Pros: Way faster than old spinning disk Hard Drives...
Quiet...
Low Power Consumption...
Cool to the touch...
Everything opens almost instantaneously

Mine are the new 2.0 firmware with TRIM, not that it matters for me since they're in RAID, but for those that got stuck with the 1.0 firmware and no updates... sucks to be you :P

but seriously I hope Corsair releases an update for those with the 1.0 firmware ppl or I will seriously reconsider buying their stuff in the future.

Cons: Well its been a few weeks with two of these installed in RAID 0, I re-benchmarked them and the benchmark numbers are still impressive, but have certainly dropped in some cases, 1MB-8MB transfers went from around 350mb/sec to about 300mb/sec, yet small files(0.5MB-16k) stayed about the same speed, with no apparent slowdown . I did turn off the pagefile and indexing, but still use it for internet cache and have installed/uninstalled quite a few programs.

In RAID there is no trim support yet, due to the RAID controllers not supporting it yet, so I was expecting to have to wipe these clean and do a restore from a backup every so often anyways. I'm crossing my fingers that Intel will make firmware updates for raid controllers.

Other Thoughts: As a side note, I did not originally install the Matrix Storage Manager software, but after doing so, and specifically enabling "volume write-back cache", my low file size benchmarks (0.5mb-16k)have improved enormously, going from approx 20mb/sec to 100mb/sec with 1k files, nearly a 5x improvement, however the larger file size benchmarks suffered in the process, going from just over 300mb/sec to about 225mb/sec. I repeated this several times to make sure. Considering the majority of what gets read/written are smaller files, I'll leave the write-back cache on.

1 out of 5 eggsNo trim firmware

Pros: Works

Cons: Corsair has been promising new firmware with trim support. where is it? they are shipping new drives with it why cant those of us that dont have it get it?

Other Thoughts: I dont think they are ever going to release a firmware update for users. seems to be a lot of talk but no action. never again will i buy a corsar product.

1 out of 5 eggsStill No TRIM Support, Slows Down With Use

Pros: I spent more money than I wanted on this drive because of the good reviews, it uses the well regarded Indilinx controller and has cache to avoid the dreaded stuttering problem. And, indeed, it was really fast when I first installed it in my notebook. But things went downhille from there...

Cons: Read up on SSD fragmentation and TRIM support. Despite running Win7, this drive's firmware STILL does not support TRIM. And that means when all those thousands of operating system temporary files, DLLs, etc. get erased or updated, the drive fills up with erased files and gets MUCH slower. Two other SSD companies, starting with "O" and "I", offer both TRIM support and utilities to clean up the drive and restore its original speed. But not Corsair. They've been promising new firmware for this drive since it came out in mid-09 but version 1.0 is still the only firmware. There are lots of posts from unhappy users on the Corsair forum about it.

Other Thoughts: The speed of my expensive SSD had degraded to now being slower than the 5400 rpm laptop drive it replaced. And the only solution Corsair offers is a utility to wipe the drive completely clean and start over. That's obviously not a very workable solution. The bottom line is get an SSD that supports TRIM and has a workable utility to clean the drive. Corsair doesn't seem to understand how important this is. There are now less expensive options to this drive that support TRIM and easily outperform this drive in real world use (versus benchmark numbers when the drive is new).

5 out of 5 eggsSilent, Fast, Easy setup

Pros: Just got these in today, simply plugged them in, enabled RAID 0 (stripe) in the onboard Raid controller and installed a fresh copy of windows 7. No special setup or formatting, it was just like working with a normal hard drive. Hard Drive benchmarks are spot on.

Windows boots and shuts down faster, and programs open almost instantly.

Cons: Doesn't fit into a standard desktop computers 3.5 inch drive bay, but they are so lightweight and dont need cooling, so you can just velcro or zip tie them anywhere in the case, or pay extra for an adapter. It would be nice if they included an adapter, but its a very minor complaint, definitely not worth taking eggs off.

Other Thoughts: 2 x32's stripe Raid benchmark results...

HD Tune reports:
-Burst read speeds of ~220mb/sec
-sustained read speeds of ~125-150mb/sec
-access time 0.1ms

according to Atto benchmarks,
this raid writes at nearly the exact same speed as a single P128 drive (about 175mb/sec for 8mb files) and reads at about 345mb/sec, which is a good bit faster

Keep in mind that when using RAID, TRIM does not work, so a gradual slowdown may occur, I will rebench in a few weeks and see...

4 out of 5 eggsOh wow. FAST.

Pros: -Super Fast. Which makes sense because it's a ssd, but still faster than most of the comparable ssds out there. In fact, I would say if you're building a new system and want it to be lightning fast, an ssd the thing to buy before a RAM upgrade (past 4gigs) or a CPU upgrade. That's just me though. The Corsair Extreme series is definitely a contender for one of the top drives out there.
-Reliable. I don't really know this from experience yet, but my personal research indicates that if you get a good drive to begin with, you're usually set for life.
-Customer service for this drive is excellent. Every bad drive I've seen posted online, Corsair has replaced quickly. That's pretty much Corsair in general though, which is usually why I tend to buy their products.
-Buying this made me want another for Raid 0. It's THAT fast.

Cons: -Benchmarks tend to be lower than the Intel X-25Ms, and those are 40G's and 30 bucks cheaper. That said, I really haven't noticed much of a difference between the two hands-on, and I've heard the Corsair extreme series handle random programs better, while the Intel X-25Ms handle an OS slightly better.
-Drives come dead on occasion. There are reports of some ssds not transferring large files, but they're quickly replaced... it's just a bit of a hassle. Mine worked fine though :)
-No TRIM firmware yet!, meaning the drive will slow down if you continually write/delete new things. (They promised me they're working on it though). Also, I use this for an OS (it's too small for anything else) and a program drive, so I don't delete things too often. It'd just be nice to have the option.
-Also, check the read/write speeds of the larger drives. They're much faster! I wish I would have seen that before I shucked out the money for this small guy. I believe this is the same for most companies

Other Thoughts: If I were to do it all over again, I'd probably buy the Intel drive for less :/, but that's the only other drive I'd consider. That said, I'm extremely satisfied with Corsair, so props to them for their customer service over the years. I also LOVE the upgrade to an ssd in general. It's awesome to have virtually no lag when doing basic things. Opening MS Word takes like half a second, and deleting files is almost instantaneous. Shut off times are ridiculous too. I boot in 20 seconds. WEI score was a 6.9 for it.

My System:
Intel i7-920
ASUS Rampage II GENE
XFX GS250XYDFC GeForce GTS 250
CORSAIR XMS3 4GB (2 x 2GB)
CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212
Antec Mini P180 Black Steel MicroATX Mini Tower
Seagate 500 GB 7200
And obviously, Corsair Extreme Series CMFSSD-32D1 2.5" 32GB SATA II

4 out of 5 eggsFAST

Pros: Very fast.

Cons: Bought two in RAID 0, one failed, had to RMA. Corsair tech support was slower than I wanted but I had no other problems than that.

Other Thoughts: Negligable speed difference between solo and RAID.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth it!

Pros: Small, light, FAST (we are talking less than 10 seconds to get to login screen in W7 after the MOBO boots, and less than 10 seconds from there to having all startup programs inc. virus protection, ASUS tools, ISO image tools, audio tool program, etc loaded up and ready to go. Also shuts down in under 5 seconds)

They are supposedly more efficient as well, would be great for a laptop (as well as for the fact that its more suited for mobile computing with no moving parts) but I can not testify on any power savings as of now.

In one word: WOW.

I will never buy a hard disk drive for a desktop primary OS drive, or a laptop drive period, again!

Cons: Well I didn't exactly soil my pants when I fired it up, despite being really excited to try it out lol

Seriously, none so far. I will buy another for my laptop when the price drops (hopefully soon)

IMO, the small size is NOT a con. Its perfect size for your primary HDD to run your OS off.

To properly mount it in a desktop, you will need a bracket. 2.5" to 3.5". I forgot to order one, oops. For now, its sitting at the bottom of my case, with some padding underneath it.

Oh and I left my SATA cables at my moms house so I can't use my old drive yet. Don't forget to buy some cables if you don't have them! It does not come with them, if you haven't figured that out.

Other Thoughts: I get almost 30 GB formatted capacity (you don't loose much), more than enough to run any operating system and essential programs. Definitely have an external and/or another internal hard drive with a good capacity for files. To free up some space in Windows, disable hibernation (its fast enough you don't need it) that clears the amount of space on the drive as the amount of memory you have, also you can disable your paging file, which also clears up the same amount of space. In my case, I have 4GB Ram, so I freed up 8GB on this drive. Only clear the paging file if you have a lot of ram.

Don't worry about filling it up either. Unlike a HDD, low free space and fragmentation do not affect these drives very much again.

If you have the bones, GET IT!
