1 out of 5 eggsSpeeds Not as advertized

Pros: Corsair SSD low energy saves you $. Ladies love it.
not bad on price

Cons: Speeds aren't as advertized crystaldisk mark 156.9 - Write 105.7
ATTO = 330- Write 360- Read

Other Thoughts: Updated the firmware on the SSD, updated MOBO bios, changed Sata wires, made sure in Bios its set to AHCI. I mean CMON all that stoff and its still slow. ok so you buy a new Ferrari but instead of a V12 its a V6 wouldn't you be T.O.'d? instead of going 550+ its only 320+ IDK how they got 550+ speeds when not even 1/2 that. i guess if you look at 330 crossed eyed it looks like 550 thats probably where the 550+ came from.

2 out of 5 eggsAnother dying after 3 months...

Pros: It was affordable with a rebate and worked well until it started dying.

Cons: I was apprehensive after seeing a bunch of reviews saying that the drive starts to give problems after 3 months. I saw that many more reviews said the drive was good. Those reviews must be people who write a review right after they get the item. The SSD worked amazingly well for 3 months and then one day when I booted up, after a few minutes of running got a bluescreen. The blue screen only last a fraction of a second, but after multiple boots, I can see that there are drive errors and memory dump occurs.

Other Thoughts: I booted windows on a local HDD and the computer works fine, so that rules out the idea that other parts are going bad on the computer.

5 out of 5 eggsNot as bad as some paint the drive

Pros: Drive has been working fine since purchase. Migrated my Windows 7 OS onto the drive, no complaints whatsoever. Price is reasonable for this size as well.

Cons: 240GB drives are getting close to the same price.

Other Thoughts: Despite a lot of negative reviews, I have not had an issue with the drive. It works, and it works reliably so far.

2 out of 5 eggsNice Idea

Pros: Nice drive while it worked. Came with mounting plate. Even at 3gig sata the speed was noticeable over my old caviar black.

Cons: Came packaged in an envelope. 1 egg off to Newegg for that. Should have been a bad sign. Drive is now a cold, lifeless paperweight after only 4 months.

Other Thoughts: SSD is far too expensive still to be so prone to failure.

1 out of 5 eggsStay away

Pros: Works average while it lasts.

Cons: Data errors start happening a few months in. (Wondered why it had a rebate (which was not honored.)

Other Thoughts: Other brands that were purchased seem to still be kickin. There are also other drives that are faster.

Manufacturer Response:
