5 out of 5 eggsVery Fast

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.

5 out of 5 eggsRuns Perfect after 2 years.

Pros: SSD still runs strong after 2 years. Made and old system runs faster than new systems with SSD. Nice upgrade to Win 7 system as primary drive. Easy hardware install. Windows boots so fast now.

Cons: none

1 out of 5 eggsFailed after about a year

Pros: Very fast

Cons: Failed way too fast.

Other Thoughts: IT was pretty disappointing to find that after a year it had no longer works. It seems to be a really common occurrence with this drive. I would not recommend it

2 out of 5 eggsCorsair neutron 256gb

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.

2 out of 5 eggsDying Drive

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

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

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.

4 out of 5 eggsStill Going After a year

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
