Corsair Nova Series SSD drives provide the performance and benefits of a solid-state drive at an attractive price. Their lower capacities make them ideal for use as boot drives, working in tandem with a second hard drive for file storage.

  • newegg The price that's right With solid-state drive, your system boots faster and applications and large files load more quickly, so you can spend less time waiting and more time working... or playing. Nova Series 2 gives you more SSD boot drive capacity for your money. SSD upgrades shouldn't be reserved just for high-end systems. Virtually any PC's performance can be dramatically improved with an SSD boot drive, and the economical Nova Series 2 helps make that possible.
  • newegg TRIM Support Nova Series 2 SSDs feature support for the Windows 7 TRIM command. This allows for efficient drive optimization to ensure the fastest possible read and write speeds.
  • newegg SSD Benefits – Reliability, Cool and Quiet, with Low Power Consumption Because SSDs have no moving parts, they can handle shock, vibration and temperature changes far in excess of traditional hard drives. That's important for desktop PCs, and essential for notebooks. Traditional mechanical hard drives spin at thousands of revolutions per minute. This takes power, and generates noise and heat. Since SSDs have no moving parts, there's no noise or vibration, and the lower power consumption helps keep things cool inside your PC.

2 out of 5 eggsLow Performance, Single Application

Pros: Serviceable as a game drive

Cons: Cannot multitask
Slower than advertised speed
Unusable without other hard drives

Other Thoughts: When I first installed this drive to my desktop gaming pc, it had speeds below advertised, but higher than the platter based drives that I had. All was fine, even if my new SSD had fairly low speeds compared to how fast it was supposed to be.

More recently I decided to install my OS onto the drive, on both my desktop and a laptop that I figured would get a nice performance boost, and it was then that I began to see some glaring issues with the drive. First of all, the drive can't do multiple things at once, so updating or installing/uninstalling programs on the SSD will lock up windows for as long as it takes for the transfer to complete. When I first installed Dropbox on the SSD, it took a number of hours to download all my files. The computer turned out to be completely unusable during the entire ordeal, as programs took minutes to start and react to user input.

This led me online, and much to my dismay the problem was effecting a large number of this drive's users, and no absolute remedy had been offered or discovered. Users who had decided to RMA their drives got new models with the exact same issues, and firmware updates solved nothing, even certain firmwares from other manufactures.

In conclusion, I'd probably steer clear of Corsair in the future. I personally plan to.

2 out of 5 eggsEventual failure

Pros: Cheap, faster than my hdd

Cons: Life span

Other Thoughts: Not giving it 1 egg because it did last for 2 years... Bad part is it ONLY lasted two years... Drive is completely dead. Good thing there is a 3 year warranty

Did you find this review helpful? Yes No

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid the manufacture of SSD

Pros: Price

Cons: Dead after a month of use with desktop running win 7 64bit. Drive does not even read as a USB flash drive when plugged into SATA to USB converter.

Other Thoughts: bought two of these since it was such a good price.

1 out of 5 eggsDied in a little over a year

Pros: Not many.

Cons: Speed was mediocre from the beginning. I didn't even consider the SSD really, because of the brand and because it seemingly worked fine. Games played fine, but Windows itself ran slowly. Windows said it was fine, and even gave it a high rating for speed. I figured it was Windows that was slow. Now it's dead, and I wish I had replaced it originally.

Other Thoughts: Next time I'll buy a more trusted model. No hard feelings as long as Corsair replaces the product with a more reliable model.

1 out of 5 eggsSputtered out, then died

Pros: Worked as advertised for three months

Cons: Began to slow significantly after three months use, would hang on extremely simple tasks for over a minute. I applied the firmware update as a previous user suggested two months ago and now the drive is completely dead. the update did seem to restore the drive, and I know know if it caused the drive to die, but after that it pooped out.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this drive, do yourself a favor. You can use the firmware update as a previous reviewer suggested, but in the end your drive will likely fail again.

Did you find this review helpful? Yes No

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: Complete junk.

Cons: Slow performance for the life of the drive. Died after one year. Total trash. Never again, Corsair.

1 out of 5 eggsDON'T BUY THIS DRIVE

Pros: Can't think of one single pro, honestly.

Cons: As EVERYONE has experienced, these drives will stutter, freeze, and fail. I tried the 3rd party firmware fix (posted by mackad1414) as well as Corsair's suggestion - "secure erase by "Parted Magic". Still JUNK.

Other Thoughts: Thanks mackad1414 for the link to 3rd party firmware update - this _helps_, but the drive is still a pig and SLOW even compared to HDDs. Nothing can fix this drive, send it back to Corsair for RMA and hope for a different replacement. Maybe if enough of us return these drives they will finally admit problems and send us working drives.

2 out of 5 eggsMake the bad drive better

Pros: Performance issues can be fixed.

Cons: The performance issues are fixed with third-party firmware

Other Thoughts: Just search for "MyDigitalSSD mSATA, Half Slim, and 2.5" SATA SSD Firmware Update" or read mackad1414's review, and just follow the instructions. Hope you don't like warranties (not that a warranty would do you any good here; what are you going to do, get a replacement drive that will just slow down again in three months?)

3 out of 5 eggsUpdated Review

Pros: Cheap drives. Work well in RAID 0, and with a lot of tweaks. I used the SSD optimization guide on the ssdreview website to configure my hard drives. I also set all programs and windows temporary files to save to a secondary platter hard drive to reduce writes, and therefore wear and tear. They are still going strong after a year

Cons: Bad controller. No firmware updates (from Corsair at least...see below). Performance degrades significantly over time.

Other Thoughts: I have had these drives over a year in RAID 0 and they started to degrade over time. I started experiencing freezing, stuttering, and slow write speeds. One of the drives also started throwing errors. I looked all around the net for a Corsair firmware update, and I could not find one. However, I found a firmware update from another brand of drive with the same controller, and applied that firmware update to both of my drives. They are now working 100% better. The are very fast now, and there is no more freezing/stuttering. I found the firmware here:

I wanted to post an updated review with the solution (the new firmware) just in case anyone else was having the same types of problems.
