3 out of 5 eggsFailed Under Warranty, Corsair sent me a smaller capacity as a replacement

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

Pros: Good size, fast, good warranty period

Cons: Hard drive burned out in warranty, I paid to ship it back, I went weeks without the drive and had to loan a computer, they replaced it with a smaller drive that I cant use because its to small for my needs. Now im back in the market so I can replace the drive, and I wont be buying from Corsair again.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid SSD

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

Pros: Very Good SSD. I had it for a few years and

Cons: There are probably newer models out now.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this product to someone who wishes to upgrade to SSD without spending a small fortune, but 512 GB SSDs are affordable now so if you are building a top of the line PC, you could do better.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Fast

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

Pros: I've had this drive for about two years and I can tell you that it's advertised speeds are right on with it's performance. It even came with the adapter bracket which as many of you know a lot of the SSD's do not come with.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: It's a con now, but not when I bought this drive, but Corsair's customer support has gone downhill drastically.

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

Pros: Very fast

Cons: Failed way too fast.

2 out of 5 eggsCorsair neutron 256gb

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

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 2.5" 256GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CSSD-N256GB3-BK

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

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

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.
