1 out of 5 eggsWhat a piece

Pros: Worked great for a few months...

Cons: After a few months, odd things started happening. I only put the OS and certain apps on this drive. Windows media player started becoming corrupted, games would mysteriously complain about bad/missing files, checkdsk would find issues... reinstalled the OS, and then it started happening all over again 3 months later. Finally got rid of it and replaced it with Kingston.

Other Thoughts: no wonder this product is deactivated. too little too late for me though...

1 out of 5 eggsQuick fix

Pros: None

Cons: Many, Bad product

Other Thoughts: The solution seems to be that the drive must be plugged into sata 1 or 2 and the motherboard must be set to IDE raid mode. Windows will not run in AHCI mode without a registry change, the registry key is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Msahci there is a key called 'start' the value was set to 3, changed it to 0, now Windows will load with AHCI enabled on the motherboard (ahci allows for hot swapping of sata drives).

3 out of 5 eggsLOVE/HATE IT

Pros: The Drive is fast and for the price(regarding SSD prices) it was awesome. The drive beats out a lot of other ssds with the extra features added. On my old amd 3800 i booted windows in about 30 secs. on my new i7 860 i boot in less than that. The DRive is fast and has decent read write speeds. but...

Cons: BUYER BEWARE! After 3 months I had issues with booting and the drive doesn't detect in bios half the time. When it does boot, things freeze. Until Corsair fixes the relability issue, i would not recommend this drive to anyone.

Other Thoughts: Fix the reliability issue and this is a solid drive.

1 out of 5 eggsWorthless

Pros: It's small and has the bracket so it can be installed into existing hard drive bays. Other than that I have absolutely nothing good to say about it.

Cons: Have to restart by holding power button when it fails to do anything after sitting idle only a few minutes. It freezes like that most of the time. Could not find any type of updates. I'm tired of looking in forums for answers where there are none.

Other Thoughts: I won't be buying anything Corsair again. Times are tough and the economy is still bad. I can't afford to be tossing money down the drain. So, buyer beware.

3 out of 5 eggsimproved speed, decreased reliability

Pros: Much faster than my old 74gb SATA1 raptor. Win 7 boots up in <30 secs on my i7 930 box.

Cons: Like others have stated, the boot reliability issue hits me about a third of the time. I used to jiggle the SATA cables, but I don't think that was the issue. It's a matter of powering down completely and then going into the BIOS and switching back to this boot drive. (I still use the raptor as a file drive)

Other Thoughts: MB is an EVGA X58 SLI LE.

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage

Pros: None

Cons: Unavailable firmware update - In the Corsair Forums many folks have complained about the lack of consistency in connection or showing up in the bios regardless of the settings (AHCI, RAID, or IDE), with AHCI it was only recognized one in five boots. That being said, the mods in the forums have replied with a standard "There is no firmware update for this drive at this time and I know of no plan to release one but we are trying to duplicate the problems you have reported and for now the only solution we can offer is to replace the drive".

Other Thoughts: This issue is constantly occurring, and being that its from Corsair, its very odd that nothing has been done to rectify this issue. Until otherwise noted, Corsair is not a good name for SSD's. After returning it I went ahead with a more mainstream brand name in SSD's.

3 out of 5 eggsAlmost ok, but still not prime time

Pros: Ok .. not many pros but when they work in Raid 0 they are fast and appear to hold stability if no more than 2 are used. My speeds were insane using 3 and 4 in my raid array but they would drop out for no reason crashing the array. It wasn't till I used only 2 that some level of stability was gained. As a single drive the perfromance was nothing to write home about but stayed within 10% of their rated speed (always below)

Cons: The drives as stated by many do not perfrom to the advertised spec like others that go by the same name as my processor and consistently exceed specifications. If you choose to use these in a Raid 0 configuration use no more than 2. The perfromance will be a nice boost to you system. Once you go past that the drives may drop from your raid at random, begin to get buggy and unreliable. Corsair customer support is really slow but will eventually come through when you need them. They seem to be really busy.

Other Thoughts: I bought one through the egg and it was sent back for an RMA and the new one had perfromance issues so back to Corsair it went along with the others I owned. To fix this issue I stayed with 2 drives in the Raid array but I now back often to assure I am safe. It will take a long time for me to develop any confidence level in these. Not enough room for the detail here but the fight has went on for a couple of months to make the Reactor series work and the jury is still out for a final result.

Corsair in general makes great products but I think this series of SSD drives are not meeting expectation. I have spent a lot of time on their forum and would suggest a visit if you are looking to buy. My memory is Corsiar in two machings and I also have their H50's in three. I also have their 1000 watt PSU. All are great and reliable. I wish I could say the same about the SSD products, but can't. I doubt my next SSD I purchase will not be from Corasir even though I really like the company.

5 out of 5 eggsSSD

Pros: Got on ehad it for two weeks works great. But these drives work great in raid 0 configuration. Reviews say that there is a problem and restarts must be made. Firmware updates correct that problem.

Cons: None

2 out of 5 eggsFollowup to an RMA'd drive

Pros: The first one would only boot intermittently after attaching and reattaching the SATA cable. I thought it was simply cheap materials and bad craftsmanship but the RMA replacement is exactly the same and it does work properly. In researching this problem on the Internet I see more than a few occurrences of this same problem so I suspect this is a result of poor workmanship and lax quality control. I still think the drive is poorly made and the housing is as thin as an Altoids tin. The label on the RMA drive is crooked and has a huge bubble in it. This shows shoddy quality control but the drive is functional so I’m adding a second star.

Cons: I have no faith in this product or that it will continue to work for the long haul but I was unable to get a refund so I’m stuck with it. My suggestion is to find another vendor. Twice now it’s refused to wake up from sleep. The computer keeps starting and then shutting down endlessly until I physically shut it down and restart it. This is a brand new Core i5 system and Windows 7 64 that works flawlessly with a regular hard drive. I haven’t had a chance to research this problem but it started when I installed this drive.

Other Thoughts: I’ve purchased many Corsair products and currently have 2 of their power supplies and 2 sets of their memory and I’m more then pleased with the quality. But this product is another matter entirely.
