5 out of 5 eggsBUY IT

Pros: - Fast response time and fast data transfer time (example: transferring 15 GB to this drive look less than 1 min 30 secs....its blazen!!!)..Every thing about this drive is FAST....even the install
- Awesome for gaming and large file recall
- MTBF = 114 years!!!! lol I hope so!

You will not be disappointed.

Cons: Only price....but in time it will come down...and can't wait for that day. I will buy several.

Other Thoughts: - I am using this drive for games only currently. I am very much considering one for the OS.
- I would recommend SilverStone SDP08 3.5" to 2 x 2.5" Bay Converter. It can hold two SSD's and looks great in chrome and very easy to install

5 out of 5 eggsawesome.

Pros: Beastly speed, blazingly fast, quicker than my stepmother's tongue.

Seriously, this drive was the single most signficiant performance booster I've purchased in years...

After POST, win7 loads in about 6 seconds (to login, another 4 to usable system state after login). Ubuntu Karmic loads in about the same. Apps seem super responsive.

Cons: Size and price. I have ubuntu karmic and win 7 dual booting and this drive doesn't really leave room for much - but that's why I have regular HDD's.

Other Thoughts: intel core2 duo wolfdale OC'ed to 4.2GHz, asus 9800GTS, asus P5Q, 8GB OCZ ram, Win 7 business, Ubuntu Karmic. Primarily used as a photo processing and coding machine.

I will be buying another SSD for my laptop (got it after this drive) when I can spare the cash again.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat disk

Pros: Good price, not a problem to date, very fast, totally silent

Cons: None to speak of.

Other Thoughts: Noticably faster boot than my old sata raid1 pair. Biggest difference is in how fast programs on the ssd load and execute. A few simple tweaks will help windows be more ssd friendly.

5 out of 5 eggsIncredible Speed Upgade

Pros: I wasn't sure if this was going to be worth it, but what a pleasant surprise! This thing has made my system way way faster, even more than I was expecting. Very nice case, top brand reputation. Received new firmware with Garbage Collection, to maintain performance.

Cons: None for me except perhaps cost. Size is not a problem, 64 GB is plenty for my Win7 sys drive.

Other Thoughts: Had to apply the tweaks manually, as Win7 didn't change the settings for superfetch, defrag, etc... See the corsair SSD->FAQ forums for a great walkthrough. Almost as good an upgrade to my computer than my 5850 which is also totally awesome, with the amazing graphics, and 7.1 192Khz lossless PCM sound for blu-rays.

My System:

Gigabyte EP45-D3SL
Intel e8400
Sapphire HD5850
4x1GB PC800
Corsair P64 SSD Sys Drive
WD 320GB SATAII App Drive
Samsung 1TB SATAII Data Drive
37" LG LCD Display @ 1080p
120" Mitsubishi HC1500 Projector @ 720p

1 out of 5 eggsWorst HDD i have ever purchased

Pros: NONE ---- Sorry Product

Cons: I have had this drive for a 24hour period and it is much slower than the drive I just replaced it with. When booting up this drive you must have it in IDE mode or it will just blue screen no matter if you have the F6 windows driver for your machine or not. Machine now stutters when logging in and takes a great deal longer to load not very please with this product and would tell other customers BEWARE!!!!

Manufacturer Response:

It sounds as if you either have a technical issue with your system or, you simply need an RMA. Contact Tech Support and we'll be happy to assist you.

5 out of 5 eggsFollow Up To My Above Review

Pros: Just a follow up - Techspot put this drive up against an OCZ 60GB SLC drive. With the exception of 4K block performance it held its own easily, to the point the reviewer was not sure the SLC drive was worth it for anything but enterprise use.

I am not experiencing any drive slowdown that I can notice yet. I think the larger RAM cache vs. the Indilinx controllers makes a difference in many areas other than just the stuttering issue.

Cons: You are still at the mercy of Samsung, and they don't care about firmware updates, non-desructive drive rejuvination, etc. to anywhere near the extent that Indilinx does. The newest firmware on this drive is claimed to restore performance if the computer is left in an idle state for an hour. Check the Corsair website.

Other Thoughts: This drive's performance has really rejuvinated my Pentium D 955 CPU system.

Samsung makes great controllers.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

Pros: Samsung controller. 128MB DRAM. Smooth under XP 32-bit, IDE enhanced mode. I did not align the drive at any recommended integer offset; I assume XP took the standard 63 offset which is undesirable for SSD performance as pages are aligned but NAND blocks are not. It took a ghosted image from a raptor just fine. I was in a hurry and did not do a clean install as I needed it to finish work. Hats off to Corsair for great performance even when handicapped by a lousy installation.

Cons: I got sustained 90+MB/s writes. Sustained reads about at claimed amounts. Corsair is more primitive than OCZ when it comes to utilities for updating firmware and running utilities to non-detructively rejuvinate the drive as it slows down over time. Be prepared for that. Samsung is not as consumer-focused as Indilinx, but the cache is twice as big.

Other Thoughts: The usual stuff - turn off hibernation, drive indexing, system restore, prefetch, superfetch, etc. Put your pagefile and temp files on a secondary mechanical drive.

If you can get an alignment of 32,64, 1024 or 2048 and install under F6'd SATA/RAID drivers you'll not doubt get even better performance. Try using diskpar for XP and diskpart for Vista and Win7 (if those two don't automatically align for you as they ought). Watch out for LBA issues that can affect some motherboards and how they interact with the drive under XP. AHCI is hit or miss as well.

Great drive. Going to save up for a second one and RAID 0 them since SSD performance scales so well.


Don't let anyone kid you about alignment not mattering. It does. It's also good to leave some extra space on the drive for wear levelling.

4 out of 5 eggsTwo thumbs up

Pros: I ordered two of these to set up in Raid0, using the onboard SATA controller that came with my Asus Rampage Formula motherboard. Vista 64bit loaded right up after i showed it the raid drivers i had put on a floppy disk and its been zero issues since.

After loading over 40gb of info, Vista plus two games, the drives where still not a degree above room temp.

Much smoother feeling then the 300gb Raptor i had been using and Fallout 3 and WoW both feel noticeable more smooth in areas i used to get a little lag before.

Cons: Even with two of these running in raid0 it does not leave a ton of room after Vista is all bloated...err i mean patched. I would get 128gb drives if i was to do it over.

No real way to mount these in a normal tower so either plan on making some sort of mount or buying a SSD converter like the Icy Dock that Newegg sells.

The drives should be listed as OEM as they just come in a small white box with no cables, screws or manual. You only get the drive itself and a cardboard box, so keep that in mind.

Other Thoughts: No matter what brand SSD drives you buy make sure to do some research as to how to set up windows for one, you must turn off a number of features like Disk Defrag, Prefetch, SuperFetch, page filing and some other back ground programs that Windows has turned on by default as they cause undue wear on these type of drives and are not needed.

Google "Installing Windows on a SSD" for links to the information needed on what services to disable to make Windows SSD friendly.

The mounting screw holes are the same thread pitch as a DVD or CDrom player mounting screws, have some handy as the drive does not include any.
