2 out of 5 eggsCorsair neutron 256gb

This review is from: Corsair Neutron Series CSSD-N256GB3-BK 2.5" 256GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: fast, very small, and was easy to setup.

Cons: Only lasted about 11 months. MBR (master boot record) issues and then pc would not see it.

Other Thoughts: good for about 11 months, then MBR errors and failure to see SSD on boot. has this about 25% of the time. Upgraded system with I7, asus z97, good ram and mbr issues. tried update but failed, ticket in with corsair and they sent me a link for latest toolbox. http://downloads.corsair.com/download?item=Files/SSD/CSSDT_1.2.2.5_WIN.zip
I was able to get data off drive and will try and get it resolved or replaced. Gave it 2/5 because it was fast in my older system and other than the MBR boot issue worked well.

This review is from: Corsair Neutron Series CSSD-N256GB3-BK 2.5" 256GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Extremely fast drive. Easy setup. Corsair SSD toolbox is a nice utility.

Cons: Drive is crashing after owning for 8 months. After reading other reviews, this seems to be typical. Currently waiting for Corsair support to respond to ticket.

1 out of 5 eggsfailing

This review is from: Corsair Neutron Series CSSD-N256GB3-BK 2.5" 256GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: was fast , good upgrade from HDD.

Cons: after 2 years of regular to light use, it is now failing and causing windows to have warning of impending doom.This is not the reliability that I have come to expect from Corsair.This is the first of 2 drives that I have bought , and I am now looking at replacing both after less than 2 years.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsDied after 14 months

This review is from: Corsair Neutron Series CSSD-N256GB3-BK 2.5" 256GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Worked great while it lasted

Cons: After 14 months, started getting intermittent boot errors for about a week and then failed completely. Definitely a problem with the corsair since a replacement ssd works fine.

Pros: Still working great after a few years. Had a couple times where I had boot issues and had to do a boot repair and one of those times it found bad sectors.

Cons: Not flawless, but not bad either

1 out of 5 eggsOnly lasted 10 months

This review is from: Corsair Neutron Series CSSD-N256GB3-BK 2.5" 256GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast.... When it worked...

Cons: This drive only lasted 10 months before throwing out SMART errors, and causing system reboots. Had to pay to RMA it to Corsair, and am now stuck waiting for their customer service to get around to dealing with my claim. Been eight days now since they received the failed unit and they won't even respond to my ticket. After this, I think I'm done with Corsair.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed in about a year

This review is from: Corsair Neutron Series CSSD-N256GB3-BK 2.5" 256GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast

Cons: Unreliable, premature failure.

Other Thoughts: After using both OCZ and Samsung SSD's for customers to install as the Windows boot drive, I was happy with SSD performance and reliability. So I decided to try the Corsair line as I like other Corsair products. So this one began locking up the computer. It wouldn't lock it up like a crash, but it would be doing very little, the system would freeze for a minute or so, then go on working. This kept happening randomly. So I imaged this drive over to a standard Seagate hard drive, installed it in the system, reconfigured Win7 so it knew there was no longer an SSD there, and since then (month ago) this system is running great with no more lockups. Stay away from Corsair SSD's, I will not buy again.
